Global Fluorotelomers market size is predicted to surpass USD 770 million by 2024 owing to its applications in food packaging, textiles, stain resistant, and firefighting foams. Growing safety concerns over fire risks in oil & gas, textile, and chemical industries coupled with regulatory compliances by EU (European Union) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to prevent the use of perfluorooctyl sulfonate derived products are some of the factors predicted to boost the industry growth over the next eight years. Growing demand for fluorotelomers in niche applications such as photography, magazine paper, semiconductor, and metal plating due to its eco-friendly features are predicted to benefit the market over the next few years.
Fluorotelomers market is anticipated to surpass USD 770 million by 2024
Fluorotelomers industry size estimated at 26 kilotons in 2015, is predicted to exceed 75.80 kilotons, growing at a CAGR of around 12.5% over the period of 2018-2024. Its heavy demand in firefighting foam applications due to the beneficial features such as chemical & thermal stability, re-ignition resistance, and smoke pollution reduction is predicted to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period. Growing fluorotelomers market trends in the textile industry can be attributed to the ability of fluorotelomers to protect the textile products such as surgical drapes & gowns of patients as well as the healthcare staff from fluid based pathogens.
Rising demand and new developments in niche applications like surfactants & repellants, electronics, optics, pharmacology, and liquid crystal additives are predicted to create potential growth prospects for fluorotelomers market over the next eight years.
However, production of key raw materials like tetrafluoroethylene, hexafluoropropene, vinylidene fluoride, and chlorotrifluoroethylene may be restricted due to its hazardous effect. This can lead to their scarce supply affecting the market growth over the next few years.
