ETFE Market by Type (Pellet/Granule, Powder), Technology (Extrusion, Injection), Application (Films & Sheets, Wires & Cables, Tubes, Coatings), and Region (North America, Europe, APAC, Middle East & Africa, South America) - Global Forecast to 2023
“The ETFE market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.0% from 2018 to 2023, in terms of value.”
The Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) market is projected to grow from USD 352.4 million in 2018 to USD 518.4 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.0% between 2018 and 2023. The eco-friendly and recyclable properties of ethylene tetrafluoroethylene, increased demand for ethylene tetrafluoroethylene from various end-use industries, and better properties offered by ethylene tetrafluoroethylene than glass and other conventional fluoropolymers are driving the growth of the ETFE market across the globe. However, a higher level of transmission of sound through ethylene tetrafluoroethylene materials than glass and ethylene tetrafluoroethylene materials being prone to punctures by sharp edges are expected to restrain the growth of the ETFE market during the forecast period.
“The wires & cables application segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the ETFE market during the forecast period, in terms of both, volume and value.”
Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene is used as an insulation material for wires & cables and cable jacketing. Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene-insulated wires & cables exhibit a high level of mechanical toughness, flexibility, and abrasion resistance. Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene insulations are commonly used in applications, which require high mechanical strength, improved chemical resistance, high-temperature endurance, and excellent electrical stability. These insulations are used for medical and scientific instruments, computers, motors, transformers, aircraft, appliances, process instrumentation, and marine systems.
“Rising demand for ethylene tetrafluoroethylene from the North American region is a key factor driving the growth of the ETFE market between 2018 and 2023.”
The North American region is the largest market for ethylene tetrafluoroethylene across the globe. The growth of the North America ETFE market can be attributed to the increased demand for ethylene tetrafluoroethylene from the region as it is preferred for various applications in different end-use industries. Moreover, the increase in the number of commercial and institutional constructions in the North American region, backed by developments in the housing sector, is also expected to fuel the growth of the North America ETFE market during the forecast period. The building & construction sector is witnessing an increased demand for ethylene tetrafluoroethylene as it is used for the construction of commercial buildings. Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene is used for constructing solar farms, medical centers, housing towers, composite wing centers, malls, and entertainment centers, among others in the North American region.
