Dublin, Sept. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Polysulfone Market By Type, By Grade, By Application, By End use industry: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021-2031" report has been added to's offering.

The global polysulfone market witnessed a valuation of $2.1 billion in 2021 and is predicted to ascend to $3.4 billion by 2031, showcasing a robust Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Harnessing the Power of Polysulfone

Polysulfones have gained traction due to their remarkable resistance to degradation from hot water and steam, making them ideal for medical and food preparation applications that necessitate repeated sterilization. Serving as an alternative to polycarbonate or acrylic, polysulfone finds its forte in high-temperature settings exposed to water and steam.

Defining Features

Key attributes of polysulfone encompass its robust semitransparent plastic composition, hydrolysis resistance in the presence of hot water or steam, strength, stiffness, high-temperature applicability exceeding acrylic or polycarbonate, and thermoplasticity. The medical sector extensively employs polysulfone for instrument components, manifolds, medical trays, and autoclavable instruments.

While polysulfones offer similar strength and rigidity as polycarbonates and acrylics, their inherent transparency may carry a faint amber hue, affecting purely optical uses. Polycarbonates or acrylics often outshine polysulfones in terms of clarity and preference.

Market Dynamics

The polysulfone market thrives on various factors, notably its widespread application in medical settings like surgical instruments, dialysis membranes, and medical device components. The rising demand for high-quality medical equipment fuels the demand for polysulfone.

Furthermore, polysulfone finds a niche in the automotive industry for applications such as fuel lines, coolant tanks, and oil filters. With the quest for lightweight, fuel-efficient vehicles on the rise, polysulfone usage in the automotive sector is expanding. The advent of advanced processing technologies such as extrusion, injection molding, and 3D printing is also facilitating polysulfone adoption across various applications.
