Sulfone Polymers Volume Consumption to Reach 68.9 Thousand Metric Tons by 2022, Projects Industry Experts in Its Report Available at MarketPublishers.02 Sep 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The combination of characteristics like toughness and rigidity, transparency, resistance against hydrolysis and to acidic attacks and melt processing at temperatures up to 400°C, in tandem with the ease of manufacture, has enabled sulfone polymers to be utilised in a broad and increasingly versatile scope of applications. Key drivers of the demand for sulfone polymers worldwide include their rising use in aerospace, automotive, filtration and medical membranes. Replacing metal to decrease weight and emissions and enhance fuel efficiency in the aerospace and automotive sector is the key factor expected to give a boost to the demand for sulfone polymers in the offing.
The medical and healthcare sector dominates the consumption of sulfone polymers, like polysulfone (PSU) and polyphenylsulfone (PPSU), and further drives the growth of these polymers. Nevertheless, the most rapid growth is anticipated for sulfone polymers, particularly polyethersulfone (PESU), in filtration membranes.
Worldwide, the consumption of sulfone polymers by volume is projected to reach 51.1 thousand metric tons by 2016-end and is set to amount to 68.9 thousand metric tons by 2022-end, registering more than 5.1% CAGR through 2022.
Insightful report “Sulfone Polymers (PSU, PPSU & PESU) – A Global Market Overview” developed by Industry Experts is devoted to an in-depth market analysis. It canvasses the different product types encompassing PSU, PPSU and PESU. The study explores the major end-use industry sectors of sulfone polymers comprising automotive, aerospace and military, electrical and electronics, food and household, medical and healthcare, mechanical and/or industrial, amid others. The global markets for these product types and end-use sectors are assessed by volume and value during 2012-2022. The study also offers an all-round assessment of the market for each polymer type based on the end-use industry for the global markets including the USA and leading regions in Europe, APAC and RoW. The regional markets further examined for 7 independent countries in Europe and the APAC region. Furthermore, the report offers detailed profiles of the top 4 global players and 14 independent compounders and processors from pole to pole. Additionally, the report lists the companies involved in production, compounding, processing and supply of sulfone polymers, which covers the address, contact details and the web addresses of 77 firms.
