Global Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Market Report 2023: Strong Government Focus on Green Hydrogen and Hydrogen Fuel Cells Presents Opportunities

Dublin, April 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Market by Form, Application (Sheets, Coatings, Pipes, Films), End-use Industry (Chemical & Industrial Processing, Automotive & Aerospace, Electrical & Electronics, Construction), and Region - Forecast to 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The PTFE market is projected to reach USD 4.0 Billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 6.4% from USD 2.9 Billion in 2023. Asia Pacific is home to several emerging economies with rapidly growing manufacturing sectors, which further drives the demand for PTFE. China is the largest producer and consumer of PTFE in the region. The growing demand for PTFE in China is mainly driven by the expanding manufacturing sector, which has increased the demand for PTFE-based products in various industries.

Dispersion segment is expected to account for the second-largest share in 2022.

PTFE aqueous dispersion concentrated liquid can be used in various applications such as dipping, coating, and spinning. It is used in general use for impregnation, fabric coatings, metal coatings, conveyor belt coatings, architectural, welding equipment, tapes or sheets, customized parts, and film coatings. It is also used as a coating for many substances in commodity industries such as stick-proof coating of frying pans and plates or rustproof coating on knives.

Coatings is expected to be the second-fastest growing application type for PTFE market during the forecast period, in terms of value.

PTFE coating is used in many industries such as automotive & aerospace, food processing, and medical devices to provide lubrication, reduce friction, and improve wear resistance. PTFE coatings improve durability and minimize friction in automotive applications. It is widely used to improve the performance and extend the lifespan of different materials and products, making them a valuable tool for many industries.

Based on region, Asia Pacific region was the largest market for PTFE in 2022, in terms of value.

Asia Pacific was the largest market for global PTFE, in terms of value, in 2022. The market in Asia Pacific is driven by innovation.
