Global Consume about 250,000 Tons of Fluoropolymer in 2012

Date: 2015-09-08

A fluoropolymer is a fluorocarbon-based polymer with multiple strong carbon–fluorine bonds. It is characterized by a high resistance to solvents, acids, and bases. Many types of fluoropolymers has been commercialized, it includes ETFE, PTFE, FEP, PFA, PCTFE, ECTFE, PVDF and PVF etc. It is widely used in construction, IT, automotive, electronics industry and other industries.

Because Fluoropolymer has high temperature, shock, weldability, corrosion-resistant properties, so it become ideal material for many areas. According to the statistics, global consume about 250,000 tons of fluoropolymer in 2012, sales of about 6.81 billion, global fluoropolymers market will reach 10.64 billion at 2020, at a CAGR of 6% from 2013 to 2020.
