Posted by Rishab Gupta on March 3rd, 2020

PEKK (PEKK) Market: Information by Type (Electrophilic Substitution, Nucleophilic Substitution), Application (Aerospace, Automotive, Medical, Others), and Region (North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific)—Forecast till 2024

Competitive Analysis

Some of the leading players in the global PEKK (PEKK) market are Arkema (France), Rallis (India), RTP Company (US), Shandong Kaisheng New Materials Co., Ltd (China), Polymics, Ltd (US), Solvay (Belgium), and Oxford Performance Materials (US).

Market Synopsis

PEKK (PEKK) Market was valued at USD 35.8 million in 2018 and expected to register a CAGR of 10.7% during the forecast period. It offers excellent resistance to chemical and abrasion.

Among high-performance polymers, PEKK can resist extreme environments making it an ideal for use in the aerospace and oil exploration industries. In addition, when PEKK is reinforced with carbon fibers, it becomes as rigid as metal and exhibits significant lightweight properties. In the aerospace industry, PEKK is used as a high-performance alternative in motor and engine owing to its capability to withstand extreme conditions. According to the Aerospace Industries Association, the global aerospace and defense industry grew by 3.0% in 2016. The US aerospace and defense industry contributes major share towards revenue generation of the global aerospace industry, which was USD 865 billion in 2017. Thus, the growing aerospace industry is positively expected to influence the demand for PEKK during the forecast period.

The increasing applications of PEKK in gas & water injection lines, offshore oil & gas production, and gas lift lines is expected to drive the global market growth. Increasing investments in oil & gas exploration and production due to rising concern regarding depleting conventional resources is expected to boost the growth of the oil & gas industry, which consequently is expected to favor the demand for PEKK. According to the organization of the petroleum exporting countries (OPEC), the oil and gas collectively are expected to continue to cater to more than half of the global energy needs by 2040.

The growth of the end-use industries including automotive, aerospace, and petrochemicals is likely to support the growth of the global PEKK (PEKK) market. Further, the global production of unconventional oil increased from 1 million cubic meters to around 3 million cubic meters in 2017, and that of natural gas increased from 4.3 billion cubic meters in 2014 to nearly 11 billion cubic meters in 2017. Thus, the increase in oil & gas exploration activities is a key factor expected to drive the growth of the global PEKK (PEKK) market during the review period.
