The fluoroelastomers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% in terms of value, from 2017 to 2022
The fluoroelastomers market is expected to reach USD 1.64 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.2% increasing from USD 1.21 billion in 2017. Fluoroelastomers are used in the manufacture of sealing products such as O-rings, seals & gaskets, and hoses. The growing demand for high performance elastomers in the automotive, aerospace, and semiconductor industries is projected to drive the market for fluoroelastomers during the forecast period.
The perfluoroelastomers type segment of the fluoroelastomers market is projected grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022
Perfluoroelastomers are specialty high-performance elastomers possessing exceptional chemical resistance and high temperature stability. These are copolymers made of tetrafluoroethylene and perfluoromethylvinyl ether. Perfluoroelastomers can be used for all applications wherein the properties of fluorocarbon elastomers are not sufficient. Perfluoroelastomers can withstand higher temperature ranges providing excellent chemical resistance for longer durations when compared to other kinds of fluoroelastomers. Perfluoroelastomers are used to manufacture high performance O-rings and seals which find applications in the energy & power, oil and gas recovery, semiconductor manufacture, pharmaceutical & chemical processing, and aerospace industries.
