Table of Contents

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a homopolymer of tetrafluoroethylene, is a linear chain polymer of great molecular length, or a “long chain” fluorocarbon, with the chemical formula (CF2CF2)n. PTFE resins have exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion, and stress-cracking. The mechanical toughness, electrical, and low-friction properties of PTFE make it the plastic of choice for a host of applications and different processing techniques.

PTFE’s vast potential applications in developing world such as China, India, Russia and other emerging countries is a key opportunity for PTFE manufacturers, that would be converted into market demand by new product and application development. Increasing use of novel products like modified PTFE and expanded PTFE in applications such as chemical processing, electrical & electronics, medical devices and filtration is set to increase the global demand for PTFE in the coming years. Micronized PTFE is estimated to be the fastest growing product form owing to the increasing usage in applications including thermoplastics, lubricants and inks.

Global market for Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) has reached 165 thousand metric tons in 2015 and is projected to reach 247 thousand metric tons by 2022 at a CAGR of 5.6% between 2016 and 2022. In regard to the market value, global demand for PTFE is projected to touch US$2.9 billion by 2022.
