Global Perfluoropolyether market size to be worth over USD 905 million by 2028

  • Published Date: June 26, 2022

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Perfluoropolyether Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 905 Million by 2028 owing to the rising number of consumers preferring air travel due to its safety, economic feasibility, and time-saving benefits is likely to accelerate the aerospace market.

Increasing research & development facilities and growing technological advancements have enabled the incorporation of sensor technologies and artificial intelligence in airplanes & defense aircraft, further boosting the popularity of air travel.

The increasing focus of manufacturers to improve the operational efficiency of aircraft has enabled the use of high-performance lubricants to reduce friction. Thus, creating huge opportunities for product demand from the industry and concurrently fuel the market demand for perfluoropolyether market.

Furthermore, the ability of perfluoropolyether product like PFPE-M and PFPE-Z to maintain their lubricity at temperatures as low as -75°C and -90°C, respectively, are likely to raise their demand in specialty applications. Low-temperature cryogenic applications such as very small, delicate precision instruments which includes sensors, potentiometers, actuators and bearings, are also witnessing potential growth in terms of perfluoropolyether usage, thus anticipated to propel in the forecast period.

Booming demand for thermally stable lubricants should uplift market from PFPE-M product type

Perfluoropolyether market from PFPE-M is projected to grow with a CAGR over 6.5% by the end of 2028.The rising demand for non-toxic, non-flammable, corrosion-resistant lubricants from aerospace, automotive, and chemical industries is likely to have a positive impact on the product demand, thus creating lucrative growth opportunity for the market.

PFPE-M has good low temperatures properties, lower evaporation loss, and lesser surface tension; hence, it is an excellent lubricant for powder metal bearing. It contains flexible molecules that helps in maintaining fluid at a much lower temperature in comparison to other lubricants, which is the key driving factor of the market.

Moreover, these synthetic fluids offer exceptional stability and ensure long-term lubrication characteristics when used at constant high temperature, making them suitable for bearings, slides, bushes and heavy duty, high temperature grease applications, thereby showing favorable circumstances for perfluoropolyether market growth.

Rapidly booming synthetic lubricants should boom market from grease type segment

Perfluoropolyether market from automotive application was value USD 435 million and projected to grow with a CAGR of 6.5% by the end of 2028. Increasing consumer awareness towards the benefits of synthetic lubricants along with significant growth in automotive sales is expected to boost the grease industry market size. Grease based products reduces friction and promotes the smooth functioning of mechanical parts owing to their high viscosity index, thermal stability, and resistivity to oxidation.

PFPE grease helps in reducing wear & tear of parts that rub against each other and thereby protect the engine from corrosion, which are the key attributes augmenting the product demand. The rising labor cost labor, strict safety requirements, and increasing competition are driving the demand for automation. This high growth in the industrial sector along with a rise in automation in various industries is driving the lubricants market growth and concurrently fuels perfluoropolyether market.

Growing investment in automotive design and safety has spurred the market demand for automotive application

Global perfluoropolyether market size from automotive application surpassed over USD 45 million in 2021. Growing GDP, rising population, and rise in disposable income have enabled consumers to purchase luxury cars, substantially increasing the demand of automotive.
