Fluorotelomers market worth $700mn by 2023
Published Date: May 27, 2016 Authors: Kunal Ahuja, Shreya Deb
Fluorotelomers Market size was 26.5 kilo tons in 2015, as per the latest research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. Rising safety concerns over fire hazards in oil & gas, chemical and textile industry have increased the importance of prevention measures and technologies for reducing such risks.
As a result, fire fighting foams may gain importance as a safety measure in manufacturing industry particularly oil & gas and chemical, which will stimulate global fluorotelomers market growth.
These products are majorly used in treatment of textiles for increasing stain resistance caused by dust, solvents and chemicals. Telomers have the ability to provide protective surface finish to textile products which include gowns & surgical drapes, and provide protection to patients and healthcare workers from fluid based pathogens.
Asia Pacific, with China and India fluorotelomers market share leading the industry, saw regional consumption rise to over 12 kilo tons in 2015. Strong growth outlook for the textile industry, especially in India, China, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, will be critical for telomere demand evolution.
FTOH (Fluorotelomer alcohol) products continue to dominate global consumption, with USD 114 million in revenue for 2015. FTOH is used as an intermediate to manufacture home furnishings, fire fighting foams, surfactants, paper packaging, textiles, stone and tile and leather.
Strong growth in domestic manufacturing across South East Asia has led to a steady rise in the industrial production index. This should translate into significant gains for firefighting foam applications as a critical aspect of regulatory compliance.
Increasing hydraulic fracturing, driven by U.S. shale gas and tight oil exploration and extraction may drive fire will influence fluorotelomer demand throughout the forecast timeframe. Stringent regulations by the U.S. EPA towards reducing PFCA and PFOA levels in FTOH and acrylate may hamper product demand and affect fluorotelomers market price trend.
Technology innovation and development of niche applications including metal plating, magazine paper, semiconductors and photography will pave opportunities for fluorotelomers market size growth.
