DUBLIN, Mar 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Fluorosurfactants Market - Global Forecast to 2021" report to their offering.
The global fluorosurfactants market is projected to reach USD 667.4 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 9.8% from 2016 to 2021. Fluorosurfactants are used in very low concentration to increase the wetting, leveling, and oil repellency in applications such as paints & coatings, waxes, polishes, cleaners, films, and adhesives. Better performance of fluorosurfactants in these applications as compared to other surfactants and the use of short-chain fluorosurfactants in developed economies are driving the fluorosurfactants market globally.
The paints & coatings segment is estimated to be the largest application segment of the fluorosurfactants market. The growing use of fluorosurfactants as wetting & leveling agents drives the market for fluorosurfactants in this application. Stringent regulations on VOC emissions by regulatory bodies, such as EPA (U.S.) and REACH (Europe), are driving the market for short-chain fluorosurfactants.
The growth of the building & construction industry has led to an increase in demand for fluorosurfactants. In 2015, North America accounted for the largest share of the global fluorosurfactants market, in terms of volume. Owing to the geographical shift of the fluorosurfactants market towards developing economies, Asia-Pacific is expected to outgrow the North American market, in terms of volume. In terms of value, Europe accounted for the largest share of the global fluorosurfactants market and the trend is estimated to continue throughout the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific is also projected to be the fastest-growing market for fluorosurfactants. The shift of the fluorosurfactants market towards emerging economies due to stringent regulations on VOC emissions in developed economies is driving the growth of the fluorosurfactants in Asia-Pacific region.
