Global Polyphenylene Sulfide Market 2017-2021

About PPS

PPS is available in a variety of grades that are appropriate for fluidized-bed coating, slurry coating, electrostatic spraying and injection, and compression molding. PPS is of two types, recycled PPS and virgin PPS. Recycled PPS has a lower price than virgin PPS. Recycled PPS has inferior properties and higher impurities than virgin PPS. Though recycled PPS offers advantages such as cost savings to end-use industries, it is subject to environmental regulations. Thus, there is growing demand for virgin PPS in various end-use industries including automotive, electrical and electronics, filter bag and others. These industries prefer virgin PPS to recycled PPS as using the former involves lower environmental risks.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global PPS market to grow at a CAGR of 9.75% during the period 2017-2021.
