Fluorinated additives improve the processing efficiency and quality of polymeric compounds. Growing demand from wire & cable companies is expected to enhance the usage of fluoropolymer masterbatches as jacketing materials. The product possesses excellent flame retardancy, dispersion, and a substantial let-down ratio, which makes them an ideal choice compared to other products.

Although the industry is experiencing substantial growth, the challenges associated with high product prices will hamper the fluoropolymer masterbatch market sales by 2027. Base carriers, such as PVDF, FEP, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), and PFA, are derived from crude oil that has a fluctuating nature, further impacting raw material prices. Furthermore, the growing trend of non-halogenated polymer usage in masterbatch products is expected to hamper product development in the U.S. and European countries.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the existing supply chain of the fluoropolymer masterbatch market in 2020. The volatility in the supply of labor & materials has further affected the production of plastic parts in major countries. Global wire & cable production was projected to reach around 33 million tons in 2020, a 2% drop compared to the previous year. Similarly, the growing number of coronavirus cases has drastically reduced the demand for plastic processing across the U.S., India, European countries, etc.
