Global Fluorotelomers Market 2017-2021

About Fluorotelomers

Fluorotelomers are fluorocarbon-based oligomers or telomeres, which are produced by telomerization. It (telomerization) is a polymerization reaction between a telogen and at least one of the taxogen molecules such as hexafluoropropene, tetrafluoroethylene, chlorotrifluoroethylene, or vinylidene fluoride. Fluorotelomers are popularly used in applications such as firefighting foams, textile and carpet industries, and food packaging. It is used in niche applications such as manufacturing glossy paper and various industries including metal plating, semiconductor and electronics, surfactants, and liquid crystal additives. Fluorotelomers are used for manufacturing fluorotelomer iodide, fluorotelomer alcohol (FTOH), and fluorotelomer acrylate.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global fluorotelomers market to grow at a CAGR of 9.55% during the period 2017-2021 .

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Fluorotelomers Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global fluorotelomers market: Archroma, DowDupont, DYNAX, Merck, and The Chemours Company

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3M, AGCCE, Asahi India Glass, and Santa Cruz Biotechnology.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing use of fluorotelomers in firefighting foams. Fluorotelomers are extensively used in firefighting foam stabilizers in commercial and military applications. They are used in firefighting agents because of their properties such as reignition resistance and reduced fire spread. Compared with other substances, they cause less pollution and are compatible with combustion liquids and flammable liquids. These are widely used in industries and construction areas to control accidents caused by fire. They reduce the surface tension of water and causes faster wetting of class A fuels with water. Fluorotelomers are used to extinguish fires caused by flammable liquids.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Excellent properties and benefits of fluorotelomers. Fluorotelomers are oligomers or telomers that contain fluorocarbon atoms and are manufactured through the telomerization process. They are used in diverse applications because of their unique properties such as stain resistance, superior surface finish, and non-toxicity. They do not bio-accumulate in animals. They provide resistance against liquid pathogens and are thus extensively used in surgical gowns and drapes.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Government regulations on the use of Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). Fluorotelomers decompose into PFOA that are harmful to the environment. Fluorotelomers are widely used in the production of microwave popcorn bags. High heat causes degradation and releases PFOA into the environment. PFOA compounds are known to have adverse health effects. The rising consumer awareness regarding the adverse health effects and environmental impact of chemical products have led to the implementation of stringent government regulations. These directives and guidelines regulate the use of fluorotelomer-based products that contain PFOA or release PFOA post-production. The use of fluorotelomers in firefighters causes low emission of PFOA. However, the same product used in leather jackets, microwave bags, and carpets can release large amounts of PFOA into the atmosphere. Exposure to PFOA is found to be carcinogenic and can cause kidney failure and cancer of prostate, bladder, and thyroid.
