Fluoropolymers: Major Types & Applications

Fluoropolymers are fluorocarbon-based polymers, containing many strong carbon to fluorine bonds and are tailored to be utilized as a high-performance material in a broad array of end user industries. The various types of fluoropolymers include perfluorocycloalkene, vinyl fluoride, tetrafluoroethylene (TFE), chlorotrifluoroethylene (CTFE) and many more, however Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) and Polyvinyl Fluoride (PVF) films are showcasing increasing penetration across applications such as semiconductor manufacturing, wire and cable insulation and coating in construction applications, which in turn is escalating the global PVDF and PVF films market through 2026. 

Leading End User Industries in Global PVDF & PVF Films Market: 

1.  Automotive: 

The automotive industry is emanating massive market opportunities for the PVDF and PVF film manufacturers across the globe, on account of increasing demand for automobiles and rising investments for light weight vehicles. The escalating sales of general & commercial utility vehicles, growing consumer fondness for fuel-efficient & light-weight vehicles and swarming investments in public transportation segment are some of the lucrative growth areas for PVDF and PVF films. The immense strength and durability offered by PVDF and PVF films are extensively catalyzing their demand across automotive applications such as decals and decorative films, electrochromic applications, plastic optical fibers and many more, throughout the world.

Additionally, the applications of PVDF and PVF films in the manufacturing of electrical appliances and semiconductors would further advance their demand across fast growing nations such as India and China. For instance, India is focusing to strengthen the electronics manufacturing industry of the country by attracting Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs), rising from USD1.64 billion in 2014 to USD18.34 billion in 2016, which is reflecting a positive growth trend for PVDF and PVF films regionally as well as globally.


In conclusion, the global PVDF and PVF Film market is expected to showcase steady growth over the span of next 9 years on account of diverse range of applications in multiple end user industries. The growth in the global PVDF and PVF films can be attributed to the rapid industrialization going on in the developing nations, subsequently emanating market opportunities for fluoropolymers. The ability of Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and Polyvinyl Fluoride (PVF) films to display inertness to chemicals, resistance to high temperature, weathering and good electrical insulation would further bolster the global PVDF and PVF Films market through 2026. Global PVF Films market is projected to reach approximately USD700 Million by the end of 2026 whereas PVDF Films are estimated to garner larger share in the overall global PVDF and PVF Films market.
