Currently, the deep processing products of PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) start to attract more and more attention as given the current overcapacity of PTFE in China, among them PTFE micro powder is estimated to have great development potential in the following years thanks to its favorable properties and wide application.
China is one of the main PTFE suppliers in the world. In this report, we present the findings in relation to China's PTFE micro powder industry, including the production situation, domestic major suppliers and the raw materials and production technologies adopted by the domestic manufacturers.
The report also details the application of PTFE micro powder in various downstream industries in China, like the coatings, plastics & elastomers, inks, etc. You can know the current market share of PTFE micro powder in China, the main end-use markets, as well as the forecast on the output and demand trend of PTFE micro powder in China in the near future.
Highlights of the report are as follows:
Generally, PTFE micro powder in China is at the introduction stage of the product life cycle, which has developed very fast in the last few years. In 2012, the total capacity and output of PTFE micro powder reached XXXX t/a and XXXX tonnes respectively. Some domestic players also developed very fast in recent years and exported a large quantity of PTFE micro powder to foreign countries. However, as the production technologies of most domestic PTFE micro powder players are not mature enough to compete with the multinational brands at present, the PTFE micro powder of multinational brands still dominates the domestic high-end market for its superior product quality. Among the suppliers of PTFE micro powder in China, Solvay Specialty Polymers (Changshu) Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Solvay Group, was the biggest one, which offered nearly XX% of the total output of China in XXXX.
In China, PTFE micro powder is mainly applied in the coatings industry and the plastics and elastomers industry, which occupied XX% and XX% of the total consumption of this product in XXXX respectively. In the last decade, with the fast development of the end-use market such as the construction industry and the automobile industry, the consumption of coatings and plastics and elastomers has been greatly stimulated, which has correspondingly driven the development of domestic PTFE micro powder industry.
Despite the slowing growth of end-use market and the saturation of the PTFE micro powder market, the industrial upgrading of downstream coatings industry and the downward expansion of domestic PTFE manufacturers may still drive the development of PTFE micro powder in China. Thus, it is estimated that the uptrend of the domestic PTFE micro powder industry will continue in the following years.
