Perfluoropolyether offers properties such as low toxicity, non-flammability, radiation stability, low volatility, and more, which has accelerated its demand in varied industries, especially in North America. In 2020, heart diseases accounted for around 64.3% of the top leading causes of death in the U.S. Subsequently, the soaring focus on strengthening the medical sector is expected to augment product uptake over the next 10 years.

Moreover, prominent government efforts to enhance the defense sector are poised to positively impact the perfluoropolyether industry outlook. The expanding commercial vehicle market around the world is also projected to foster product penetration.

Availability of advanced alternatives may restrain industry progression

The lack of R&D initiatives is hampering advancements in the field, restraining market growth. The inadequate research infrastructure to enhance the use of perfluoropolyether has enabled the development of new alternatives with comparatively reasonable prices. This has affected the product adoption rate, especially in emerging or low-income countries. Nevertheless, the rise in investments by manufacturers in R&D programs is set to provide significant growth opportunities for the market.

In terms of end-use, the perfluoropolyether market is segregated into automotive, textile, electronics, aerospace, chemicals & petrochemical, food processing, metal processing, medical industry equipment, power generation, pulp & paper, and others. The perfluoropolyether industry share from the automotive segment is estimated to be worth over USD 80 million by 2032. PFPE aids in reducing wear and withstands aggressive chemical atmospheres, which is likely to bolster the utilization of PFPE for automotive sensors and anti-lock brakes in the automotive sector.

High investments in the aerospace sector to augment North America market statistics

North America perfluoropolyether market

North America perfluoropolyether market exceeded USD 200 million in revenue in 2022 and is foreseen to register around 5.5% gains through 2032. The regional growth is backed by the temperature & weather resistance properties of PFPE that make it highly effective for lubrication purposes in the aerospace sector. Soaring investments in the aerospace sector by the U.S. and Canada are expected to further foster the need for PFPE-based greases & oils in the region.

Acquisitions & partnerships to favor the perfluoropolyether industry outlook

The Chemours Company, Daikin Industries, Inc., Solvay, M&I Materials Limited, LUBRILOG SAS, IKV Tribology, Fluorotech USA, Metalubgroup, Setral Chemie GmbH, and Jet lube, among others, are a few key perfluoropolyether market players. These companies majorly focus on product innovation and strategic partnerships and acquisitions to maintain their market standing.

Impact of COVID-19 on the perfluoropolyether market trends

The market witnessed a two-fold impact of the COVID-19 outbreak. Firstly, due to disruptions in business operations in the chemical, automotive, and aerospace industries, the uptake of PFPE-based lubricants and grease declined drastically. Secondly, the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic fueled product usage in the medical equipment industry. Furthermore, the growing demand for advanced and commercial vehicles is fostering product penetration in the automotive industry, which is set to support business growth in the post-pandemic scenario.
