Asia-Pacific: The Biggest Market of PTFE

Asia-Pacific is the world's largest and fastest-growing market of PTFE, which
consumed nearly half of the total demand, and also a major consumer of PTFE
end products. China and Japan are the key consumers of PTFE in Asia-Pacific,
while countries including South Korea and India have comparatively small
consumption levels. Chemical processing and Mechanical end industries segments
are driving the demand for PTFE products, which in turn is pushing the demand
for PTFE within the region. The growing industrial expansions in the region
have also led to increased consumption of PTFE. The PTFE  M arket is also up
surging due to high penetration of material in industries like medical or
automotive which have further helped the PTFE Market to emerge in the region.
Various innovations, developments, and expansions in different industries have
in turn made the region a potential growth market for PTFE and its products

Fine Powder - The fastest growing by form segment; and Filled PTFE - the
fastest growing PTFE application

Fine powder is manufactured through emulsion polymerization technique and is
processed mainly in form of paste. Fine powder is mainly consumed in
applications like tubing, sealing tape, membrane, insulation layer of wire,
liners, and so on. Fine powder form is the fastest growing PTFE form with a
CAGR of 6.7% to 2018. The major growth driver for PTFE powder is the growing
PTFE membrane market which utilizes majorly fine powder for its manufacturing.
The PTFE membrane market has a wide scope for its expansion which in turn
would help in increasing consumption of PTFE fine powder. PTFE granular powder
remains the dominant PTFE form and is expected to be the largest in coming

Filled PTFE is the fastest growing application of PTFE and is anticipated to
be worth $383.2 million by 2018. The addition of fillers to virgin PTFE resins
enhances the standard properties and helps in widening the scope of PTFE
application in various industries. Fillers like graphite, glass, carbon, etc.
are used to produce Filled PTFE.

Chemical Processing - the biggest end-user industry

An estimated annual consumption of 39.2 kilo tons in 2012 makes chemical
processing industry a leading consumer of PTFE. PTFE owing to its properties
like inertness to chemicals and high thermal stability is used to manufacture
components like tubes, pipes, bushes, gaskets, bellows and so on which are
used in chemical processing industry to carry chemicals, fluids, acids, and so
on. PTFE is also used majorly in industries like electronics, semiconductor,
food and household, and so on.

Dongyue Group Ltd. (China), E.I. DuPont De Nemours and company (U.S.), Asahi
Glass Co. Ltd. (Japan), Gujarat Fluorochemicals Ltd. (India), 3M Company
(U.S.), etc. are some of the major manufacturers of PTFE.
