The global fluoropolymer films market size is projected to enter a period of dynamic expansion on account of rising demand for fluoropolymer coatings in the automotive industry, states Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, Carmakers are constantly taking efforts to enhance the value of their product. One of the key elements in upholding the value of a vehicle is through building internal components that can withstand high temperatures, corrosion, and have a long shelf-life. As a result, auto manufacturers extensively utilize fluoropolymer films. For example, many vehicle manufacturers use these materials to coat tank valves, sensors, seals, and hoses in a car’s fuel system. Similar protection is provided for powertrains, wherein components such as valve stem seals, piston rings, and internal shift seal rings are glazed with fluoropolymer solutions. Thus, increasing adoption of these films in the automobile sector is expected to fuel the market growth in the coming years.

Market Restraint

Increasing Plastic & Chemical Pollution Worldwide May Hinder Market Growth

One of the main hindrances obstructing the fluoropolymer films market growth is the increasing levels of plastic and chemical pollution across the globe. According to the UK-based marine conservation group, Surfers Against Sewage, global plastic waste is set to reach 640 million tons by 2034, with 8 million pieces of plastic finding their way into the oceans on a daily basis. Not only are fluoropolymer films and other synthetic plastics harming marine ecosystems, they are also detrimental for human health. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the WHO, has deemed perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) as a possible carcinogen. Citing the consequences of this chemical on humans, UN experts are recommending that it should be added to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants. Global movement towards reducing plastic pollution may, therefore, hamper the growth of this market in the long run.
