fluoropolymer tubing market
fluoropolymer tubing market

The global fluoropolymer tubing market is likely to showcase a growth of around 6% during the forecast period. Being a highly versatile material, fluoropolymers are used in numerous forms. Fluoropolymer tubing is one of the commonly used forms of fluoropolymers. These tubes find application in a wide range of industries including electrical & electronics, industrial processing, medical, automotive, and aerospace to name a few owing to high heat resistance, high dimensional stability, low weight, and good chemical resistance over conventional polymer tubing. In addition, being almost universally inert to industrial chemicals and solvents, their use for corrosion protection has become one of their largest growth areas. With few exceptions, fluoropolymer tubing can handle virtually any corrosive chemical in use today. From a demand-side perspective, it is expected that the demand for fluoropolymer tubing is likely to grow over the next decade owing to rising investment in semiconductors, medical, energy, and automotive & transportation. For instance, in September 2022, Vedanta Ltd. and Taiwan’s Foxconn signed an agreement to establish a $20 bn semiconductor project in India.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, PTFE held a prominent share in the market in 2020”

Based on type, the market is categorized into PTFE, FEP, PFA, ETFE, PVDF, and others. Among these, PTFE accounted for a dominant share of the market. PTFE is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. It is an incredibly versatile material with a wide variety of applications. Its chemical inertness, heat resistance capability, low-frictional co-efficient, and high electrical insulation properties make it a preferred component for industrial use. Furthermore, due to its low cost compared to most likely substitutes i.e., FEP and PFA, it has gained strong market attraction.

“Amongst applications, medical application accounted for a significant share in 2020”

Based on application, the market is categorized into medical, semiconductor, energy, oil & gas, automotive & transportation, fluid management, general industrial, and others. Among these, medical applications accounted for a prominent market share. This can be ascribed to the increasing demand for medical equipment & devices like catheters and general equipment. Further, the rising geriatric population across the globe and more specifically in Europe and Japan increasing the demand for fluoropolymer tubing in medical applications.

“Asia-Pacific is expected to retain its position during the forecast period”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of Fluoropolymer Tubing, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (the United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, and Rest of Asia-Pacific), and Rest of World. Asia-Pacific held a significant share of the fluoropolymer tubing market and is expected to retain its position during the forecast period. The region held the title of the largest market for semiconductor, solar, automotive, and general industrial manufacturing which in turn resulting in high demand for raw materials including fluoropolymer tubing. Further, improving income and growing demand for high-quality products among consumers is increasing the market for fluoropolymer tubing in the region.
