 Fluoropolymer films exhibit physical & chemical properties that are superior to other film materials. Industrial applications of fluoropolymer films are propelling on the grounds of several high-performance qualities, which include non-stick performance, optical transparency, chemical resistance and moisture resistance. Nonetheless, the most crucial factor driving the demand for fluoropolymer films across multiple industrial verticals is the robust precipitation attained by these films. High precipitation capabilities of fluoropolymer films make them a diversified raw material for production of electronic components, machines, automobile parts and semiconductors.


A latest report published by Future Market Insights that the global market for fluoropolymer films, which is worth closed to US$ 1,400 Mn at present, will soar at an impressive 6.1% CAGR to bring in US$ 2,537.6 Mn by the end of 2026. According to the report, the global demand for fluoropolymer films is also anticipated to grow on the account of rapid deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules across the globe. Surging adoption of solar PV modules will continue to boost the sales of fluoropolymer films which are used as protective sheets to layer from surfaces of these modules.


In the due course of this decade-long forecast period, the global fluoropolymer films market is also predicted to record sales of close to 60,000 tonnes. A major share of these sales are likely to emanate from the Asia-Pacific excluding Japan region. Through 2026, the region’s fluoropolymer films revenues will showcase steadfast growth 5.8% CAGR. China’s Dongyue Group Ltd. is projected to play a key role towards the growth of fluoropolymer films market in Asia-Pacific excluding Japan region.


The Japanese fluoropolymer films market will also register steady growth as companies such as Asahi Glass Co., Ltd. and DAIKIN Industries, Ltd. will continue gaining global prominence as manufacturers of fluoropolymer films. Another lucrative region for global expansion of fluoropolymer films businesses is observed to be North America. US-based fluoropolymer film manufacturers, namely The Chemours Company, 3M Company and Honeywell International, Inc. will play a key role in consolidating North America’s position in the global fluoropolymer films market. Other leading manufacturers of fluoropolymer films, profiled in the report, include Solvay, Arkema Group, Saint-Gobain, and Polyflon Technology Limited.


High price of procuring fluoropolymers and complexity of manufacturing processes involved in production of these films might restrain the market’s growth to some extent

A comprehensive pricing analysis compiled in the report indicates that in 2015, the average price weighed per ton of fluoropolymer films was around US$ 36,380 to US$ 43,440


Demand for PTFE, FEP and PVF fluoropolymer films will remain considerably high as these three products will account for close to 60% of global revenues through 2026


The report identifies packaging as the largest end-user industry for fluoropolymer films, but also expects significant growth across multiple industrial verticals such as automotive & aerospace, electrical & electronics, and industrial equipment manufacturing
