The fluoropolymer films market size is projected to reach USD 2.62 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.9% 2017 and 2022. Fluoropolymer film is a base material with significant physical properties, such as high-temperature tolerance, low coefficient of friction, chemical inertness, weather/UV resistance, and negligible moisture absorption. These films also have excellent optical and dielectric properties. Its unique capabilities make it preferable across applications, such as electrical & electronics, medical & pharmaceuticals, automotive & aerospace, and industrial. These films can be heat-sealed, metalized, laminated, thermoformed, welded, and die-stamped. These films have superior dielectric properties across a wide temperature and frequency range.

PTFE films are the largest fluoropolymer films type produced. These films are suitable for a wide range of applications in chemical processing, electrical & electronics, packaging, medical & pharmaceutical, and consumer products, due to its low price and significant properties, such as chemically inertness, good electrical insulation, high-temperature resistance, and low coefficient of friction.

The medical & pharmaceutical application segment is projected to register the highest growth during the forecast period. The consumption of fluoropolymer films in this application is growing due to the rising demand for fluoropolymer films to manufacture next-generation drug containers and delivery systems such as cap liners, stoppers, and plunger laminates; release films for skin-mounted devices, and cryogenic sample bags used in biotechnology and genetic studies.

Expansions, acquisitions, new product developments, and partnerships were key strategies adopted by major players to achieve growth in the global fluoropolymer films market between 2015 and 2017. Major players in the fluoropolymer films market are The Chemours Company (US), Saint-Gobain (France), Nitto Denko (Japan), 3M (US), Daikin (Japan), Honeywell International (US), DUNMORE (US), Guarniflon (Italy), ACG Chemicals (Japan), and Textile Coated International (US).

Daikin adopted expansions and acquisitions as its major strategies to increase its presence in the market and to cater the increasing demand for fluoropolymer films products. In August 2017, Daikin established a new subsidiary, DAIKIN CHEMICAL SOUTHEAST ASIA in Thailand to increase the sales of fluoropolymer and fluoroelastomer products to the automotive industry. With this expansion, the company aims to expand its fluorochemical business in the Southeast Asian market. In the same year, Daikin planned to acquire Heroflon (Italy), a manufacturer of high-performance fluoropolymer compounds and micro-powders focusing on PTFE. With this acquisition, the company expects to enter the compound business for fluoropolymers and utilize its global network to expand sales of Heroflon’s products.
