Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) – Global Market Overview 2016 – Research and Markets

May 10, 2016
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) – A Global Market Overview” report to their offering.

Global volume consumption of Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene, standing at 22.2 thousand metric tons in 2012, is forecast to be 28.4 thousand metric tons in 2016 and is projected to reach 41.1 thousand metric tons by 2022 at a CAGR of 6.4% between 2016 and 2022. Over the same period, value demand for FEP is likely to register a faster CAGR of 6.7% and reach a projected US$1.1 billion by 2022 from a forecast US$740.2 million in 2016.

Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene is a copolymer of hexafluoropropylene (HFP) and tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) and is a melt-processable fluoropolymer. Being very similar in composition to PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene is bestowed with the beneficial properties of low friction and non-reactivity that are hallmarks of PTFE. The only exception is that Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene is softer than PTFE and has a lower melting point of 260°C, in addition to being highly transparent and resistant to sunlight.

Global demand for fluoropolymers has been witnessing considerable growth and as major worldwide economies are on the path to recovery, the need for specialty, melt-processable grades such as Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene has also been growing rapidly. This polymer is finding extensive use in areas such as wire and cable, photovoltaic (PV), aerospace and automotive markets.
