Polytetrafluoroethylene accounts for the major share of the fluoropolymer market. PTFE is the linear homopolymer of TFE with a repeat unit and is made by polymerizing TFE in water using free radical initiators. Basically, PTFE resin is manufactured by two types of polymerization; suspension polymerization and emulsion polymerization; and on the basis of polymerization technique, various forms of PTFE are produced. PTFE is majorly produced in three forms: granular/molded powder, fine powder and aqueous dispersion.

According to a new report from MarketsandMarkets, the PTFE market is experiencing huge growth which is expected to continue in the near future, majorly driven by the highly growing Asia-Pacific region and intense focus towards industrial expansions. A significant amount of investments are made by various market players in order to be prepared to serve the high potential ones in future. Asia-Pacific is the major PTFE market, which accounted for nearly half of the total global demand in 2012. The region is further expected to show quite a high growth in future, mainly due to high growth potential of the Chinese market.

The industrial goods were the single-largest application of PTFE, with a market share of nearly 49.7% of the total demand in 2012. Budding demand for modified PTFE and expanded PTFE is pushing the demand for PTFE at a notable pace. Filled PTFE is comparatively consuming less quantity of PTFE but the growth in demand is anticipated to be significant due to increasing penetration of Filled PTFE applications in various end user industries.

This study basically aims to estimate the global PTFE market for 2013 and to project the expected demand of the same by 2018. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the global PTFE market. It provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, challenges, and key issues in the market.
