“Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) is a semi-crystalline, high-temperature performance polymer possessing aromatic rings linked with sulfides. It belongs to a family of high-performance thermoplastics that include specialty nylons, sulfone polymers, liquid crystal polymers, aromatic polyketones, polyetherimides, and others. PPS offers exceptional properties such as lightweight, heat resistance, tensile strength, and electrical conductivity. Polyphenylene sulfide is a high performance thermoplastic that are widely used in manufacturing components of automotive and electrical & electronics industry. The world polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) market is expected grow at a CAGR of 9.6% from 2016 to 2022 and would reach$1,856 million by 2022 from 2015 market value of $982 million.
The world PPS market is anticipated to register substantial growth in the near future owing to increase in demand from various sectors such as automotive, electronics, industrial, and aerospace. Major factors expected to drive the market include increase in the consumption of PPS compound for high temperature applications due to its superior performance and mechanical characteristics and rise in advancement in automotive and electrical & electronics industry. Rise in PPS consumption in coating applications owing to its excellent electrical properties, chemical resistance, and high heat resistance has increased its demand. In addition, high consumption in food processing equipment, non-stick cookware, and chemical processing is estimated to stimulate market penetration during the forecast period. However, the presence of substitutes, including polyether ether ketone (PEEK) and polyethylenimine (PEI), and the fluctuation in raw material prices restrain the growth.
