Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Market – By Type ( PTFE, FEP, PFA, ETFE); Property Type (Not Sticky, Heat Resistance, Wear Resistance ,Corrosion Resistance); Coating Material & By Industry – Forecast 2016 – 2021.” report to their offering.

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a crystalline fluoropolymer consisting of long parallel macro-molecules, each of them is made of a carbon chain surrounded by fluorine atoms forming a linear repeating structure -CF2-CF2-CF2-.The monomer molecules (tetrafluoroethylene) have the structure F2C=CF2. The fluorine atoms covering the carbon chain protect it from chemical activity. They also repeal other PTFE molecules and molecules of other substances resulting in high chemical resistance and exceptional non-sticking properties of polytetrafluoroethylene.

Due to those exceptional properties, the usage of PTFE is increasing steadily.

Polytetrafluoroethylene is mainly available in powder forms including fine, micronized, granular, aqueous dispersion and such other forms. It is used as a mechanical component and coating material across different industrial verticals.

Asia Pacific dominated the global polytetrafluoroethylene market. Cheap availability of raw materials and growth in various end-user industries is resulted into growing polytetrafluoroethylene demand in the region. North America was the second largest market for polytetrafluoroethylene. North America and Europe are also expected to be exhibit strong growth in demand for polytetrafluoroethylene over the forecast period. Latin America and Middle East & Africa are also expected to grow at a moderate pace.
