2016-2021 Fluoroelastomer Market Outlook Compared to 2022-2032 Forecast

The market of Fluoroelastomer witnessed a CAGR of 4.6% over the historical period of 2016 and 2021. Significant growth of various end-use industries, Fluoroelastomer has led to an increased demand for Fluoroelastomer over the historical period. Automotive and industrial industry are the largest consumers fluoroelastomers APACly, and due to the COVID 19 crisis as these industries have seen a significant decline in their growth. Supply and production from these industries is get decline. After the pandemic situation is recoverd and production and supply chain is get back to the track which lead to growth in the market.

However as per the current survey conducted by FMI, the forecast growth outlook for the Fluoroelastomer is to remain around 5.2% for the period of 2022 and 2032. Application in various end-use industries such as use of fluoroelastomers in medical, automotive, and electrical industries. Increasing production of end-use products that use Fluoroelastomer as a composite material is expected to drive the demand for Fluoroelastomer over the forecast period.

For instance, demand for automotive products is increasing APACly, with around 5%-7% annual growth. Increasing production to meet APAC demand is linked to a rise in demand for Fluoroelastomer.

Market Dynamics

Rising Demand from various end-use industries

Fluoroelastomers are employed in specialised items like hoses and gaskets that are needed by industries like automotive and aerospace. They serve as the jacketing materials in fibre optic cables as well. Fluoroelastomers are used by the oil and gas industry as contamination and sealing solutions in harsh conditions. The sector for fluoroelastomers is currently experiencing strong expansion, attributable to rising aerospace investment. Fluoroelastomers are widely used in the aerospace industry for insulation and a variety of other applications.

To meet the rising demand for more fuel-efficient automobiles, a number of automotive manufacturers are altering the designs of their vehicles and putting more of an emphasis on lightweighting through the use of alternative materials. As a result, the size of the power train, engine, and engine compartments is being reduced by automobile manufacturers. To increase fuel efficiency in addition to these, the modern air management system is also included.

Incompatibility of fluoroelastomers with certain ester solvents

The greatest barrier to the overall expansion of the fluoroelastomers sector is thought to be the incompatibility of fluoroelastomers with certain ester solvents, such as ethyl acetate, amines, and organic acids that are heavily used in the chemical industries.

During the anticipated period, it is also anticipated that variations in overall performance with regard to the relevant application and end-user will restrain the market expansion for fluoroelastomers. When exposed to extreme temperatures, some fluoroelastomers quickly disintegrate and release hydrogen fluoride gas. Additionally, it is believed that the non-biodegradable quality is the main factor limiting the market's expansion for fluoroelastomers.

Rising Demand of fluoroelastomers is creating ample growth opportunities

During the projection period, manufacturers are leaning toward creating fluoroelastomers that are industry-specific and built with properties like exceptional heat and chemical resistance. Such initiatives are improving fluoroelastomers' overall performance, which is increasing their application in end-user industries, including the pharmaceutical and food processing sectors.

It is predicted that the field will see new prospects when existing fluoroelastomers are improved for better performance. A large number of businesses have begun producing fluoroelastomers that are approved for use in food and pharmaceuticals. In 2019, AGC Chemical obtained Food Contact Notifications from the US FDA (Food and Drug Association) for three of its fluoroelastomer products: namely, the AFLAS Series 100S, 100H, and 150P.

The use of fluoroelastomers in the automobile industry is being driven by the growing development of the sector and the growing investments in it. because they are also used in the manufacturing of some automobile parts.
