India Fluoropolymer Market to Register 9.5% CAGR till 2019

 Rising demand for chemically inert material in chemical and industrial processing would continue to boost fluoropolymers market in India

According to a recently published TechSci Research report, “India Fluoropolymer Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2019”, the market for fluoropolymers in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% during 2014-19. Increasing demand for chemically inert material with superior physical and chemical properties is one of the major drivers for fluoropolymer demand in India. Their ability to with stand high temperature and pressure makes them suitable for use in industrial application. Fluoropolymers can be broadly classified into five types, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Polyvinylidiene fluoride (PVDF), Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP), Fluoroelastomer and Other category. Among all the segments, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) dominated the market, holding around 75% market share in volume terms in 2013, while PVDF and FEP are expected to witness faster growth in the coming years.

Fluoropolymers are also used along with other materials such as glass and carbon fibers in order to enhance protective properties and add durability to machine parts and peripherals. Despite significant demand, India largely lacks in domestic fluoropolymer production base, and thus imports it from countries like China. However, in 2011, such imports created a scenario of great concern for domestic manufacturers. Chinese players started dumping fluoropolymers in India at very lower prices, which vastly affected the sales of domestic players. To regulate imports of low-cost Chinese fluoropolymer compounds, the Government of India renewed Anti-Dumping duties for five years in December 2012.

“Chemical processing & pharmaceutical industry is one of the key end user industries for fluoropolymers in India. While chemical industry uses fluoropolymers for making internal lining of chemical carrying pipes, pharma industry uses it for making drug delivery devices. Over the coming years, growth in end user industries is expected to drive the market for fluoropolymers in India.” Said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm.
