Fluoroelastomers Market Dynamics

The market is driven by the rising demand for fluoroelastomers by rising demands in electric vehicles, aerospace & defence as well as other semiconductor materials

Fluoroelastomers are used as gaskets and rings in many industries including automotive cars, building, aerospace, and aeronautics. As per the International Energy Agency in 2018, electric passenger cars have an estimated sales of around 5 million globally with a 63% increase as compared to the previous year. Furthermore, with an increase in the adoption of fluoroelastomers in aerospace & defence, the semiconductor industry requires fluoroelastomers in a huge amount. The semiconductor industry has been growing with a very high rate due to its ever-increasing demand. As per the Semicon Europa Organization in 2021, the semiconductor industry has shown significant growth with around USD 500 billion which impels the demand for the fluoroelastomers for semiconductor equipment productions.

There is a rise in the launch of new innovative elastomers technology based on fluoroelastomers for the oil and gas industry. For instance, in October 2018, Greene Tweed Company had received patented for molded articles and rapid gas decompression resistant fluoroelastomers. This product provides a competitive advantage for the seals and engineered components by energy-saving, and maintaining integrity in the automobile application by ensuring health, and environmental safety.

Environmental concerns and high price of fluoroelastomers are the two major factors restraining the growth of the market. As fluoroelastomers are non-biodegradable, their use and production have to be limited to some extend in order to preventing them from harming the environment. The high price of the fluoroelastomers is also a cause which is hampering the growth of the market as it repels potential customers. 

COVID-19 Impact Analysis on Fluoroelastomers Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the global fluoroelastomers market. The automotive industry and the aviation industry, two of the biggest consumers of fluoroelastomers, have suffered due to COVID-19. China is a production hub for raw materials, auto products and finished goods. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the supply chains were disrupted from China to other countries of the world. The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic also forced many automotive companies to halt their manufacturing operations. The overall situation of the manufacturing units due to the pandemic has reduced the sales of the fluoroelastomers. As for the aviation industry, the severe restrictions in inter-country and intra-country travel paralyzed the whole industry. Major losses were faced by airplane companies. For example, according to a report from Yahoo Finance, the price per share of Boeing fell from 345.4 billion in February 2020 to 95.01 billion in March 2020 due to COVID-19. Consequently, the global fluoroelastomers market also saw a fall in its growth. But the post-pandemic situation has improved and both the automotive and the aviation industry have recovered and are set to grow, thereby driving the growth of the fluoroelastomers market.

Segment Analysis on Fluoroelastomers Market

The global fluoroelastomers market is segmented based on product type, application, and region.

Depending on the application, the global fluoroelastomers market is segmented into Automotive, Aerospace, Oil and Gas, Energy and Power, Semiconductor, Pharmaceutical, Food Processing, Chemical Processing, and others

Among these, the automotive segment has the highest market share in 2019. This growth is anticipated due to rising in the production of electric vehicles and the growing adoption of EVs among the people from the developing region like China, India, and Brazil. For example, in the 2019 fiscal year, the Company Maruti Suzuki sold more than 6 Lac cars with automated manual transmission In India. Also in India, from 4.8 per cent market share in fiscal year 2020, Tata Motors had a market share of over 9 per cent in fiscal year 2021, with a 69 per cent growth in sales. In general, the automotive industry has been growing at a very fast rate. According to the International Energy Agency, in 2019, global electric vehicle production has been reached around 140 million vehicles, excluding two and three-wheelers.

Similarly, aerospace, oil, and gas, energy and power, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, food processing, chemical processing segments are also growing at a faster pace owing to the surge in population and modernization of the technology.

In terms of product type, the global fluoroelastomers market is bifurcated into Fluorosilicone elastomers, Perfluoroelastomers, and fluorocarbon elastomers

Among this, the fluorocarbon elastomers segment had the highest share in 2019 owing to increasing usage in the manufacturing of electric vehicles and the aerospace industry. Fluorocarbon has excellent chemical properties to sustain high temperatures in automobiles. Fluorocarbon elastomers are resistant to automotive oils and fuels, aircraft jet fuels and lubricants, hydraulic fluids, chlorinated solvents, aromatic solvents, etc. It is being increasingly used in vehicles and airplanes. Hence, a growth in the automotive industry and aviation industry will result in the growth of the fluorocarbon elastomers segment. For instance, as per the International Energy Agency, the global electric car sales are projected to reach above 130 million vehicles by 2030. This propels the demand for the fluoroelastomers market during the forecast period.

Similarly, Fluorosilicone elastomers and Perfluoroelastomers segments are also increasing at a fast pace owing to a surge in the usage in aerospace and other chemical industry around the globe.
