Based on form, the granular segment is estimated to lead the PTFE Market in 2017.
Granular PTFE is the most widely used form of PTFE, owing to its low price. The production technology of granular PTFE is less complicated and results in low manufacturing cost. Granular PTFE offers chemical inertness, high-temperature resistance, outstanding chemical resistance, low coefficient of friction, exceptional adhesion, low-temperature toughness, electrical properties, and excellent water repellant properties. Hence, it is used in the manufacturing of semi-finished and finished products such as rods, sheets, bushes, gaskets, seals plates, balls, piston rings, valve seats, expansion joints, diaphragms, piping components, O-rings, v-rings, connectors, and sockets.
Based on end-use industry, the chemical & industrial processing segment is estimated to lead the PTFE Market in 2017.
PTFE resin is extensively used in the chemical & industrial processing industry in the form of films, gaskets, tubes, coatings, liners, and components in a wide range of machinery and equipment. It is mainly used in the manufacturing of pumps and valves, shaft seals, sliding elements, and friction bearings. Chemical resistance, thermal resistance, and flexural strength properties of PTFE make it suitable for its use in the chemical & industrial processing end-use industry.
