The Global Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) Market 2018-2023: Driven by the Enormous Demand as a Cost Effective Alternative for PTFE in Non-Stick Applications of the Food Industry - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 27, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 27, 2018--The “Global Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) Market - Segmented by Product Type, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The market for fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) is expected to register a significant growth during the forecast period 2018 to 2023. This significant growth is primarily driven by the enormous demand as a cost effective alternative for PTFE in non-stick applications of the food industry.

Emerging Applications in the Optical Fiber Industry like Jacketing Material

The optical fiber cables market has benefited from growing demand for data transmission capacity, making it essential to upgrade existing network infrastructure, particularly in Italy and France, where the existing network is still predominantly in copper cable, while North America started to see the first initiatives to develop the 5G network. The market for optical fiber cables also benefited from growing investments by the principal Chinese carriers, who represented the biggest source of growth in global optical cable demand. The increasing upward trend in optical cable market is estimated in the nearby future, further igniting the demand for overall fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) market.

Semiconductors Application Segment to Contribute Significant Demand to the Market

The FEP coatings are well suited for applications in the semiconductor industry where they are used in the manufacture of wafer carriers, tubing, fittings and pump parts which are optimal for transporting high-purity chemicals in semiconductor manufacturing.

Key Developments in the Market

Daikin America, a leading supplier of fluoropolymer and fluorochemical products, increased the prices for FEP products. This price increase is necessary for Daikin to make progress towards investment economics to justify both continued and new investments in manufacturing, technology, logistics and technical support services.
