    Automotive Fluoropolymers Market Insights

    Fluoropolymers market in the automotive industry is estimated to top US$ 1.4 billion in sales by 2024.The growth in the demand for fluoropolymers in the automotive industry has been outpacing the growth of the overall automotive industry for the last two eons.  Increasing global automobile production, increasing requirement of high-temperature-resistant materials because of engine downsizing, and increased demand for lightweight materials to address the stringent emission regulations are creating a healthy demand for fluoropolymers in the automotive industry.

    Currently, the automotive industry accounts for merely 15% of the total fluoropolymers consumption in terms of volume; however, the industry is indisputably one of the fastest-growing end-use segments of fluoropolymers, outpacing the average industry growth, propelled by an incessant rise in the penetration of fluoropolymers in various applications including seals and hoses, especially for charge air coolers. The demand for charge air cooler has been at pinnacle because of rising demand for turbocharged vehicles in both gasoline as well as diesel vehicles, giving an impetus to demand fluoropolymers and creating new revenue pockets for the market participants.

    Rising global temperature, changing customer requirements, the introduction of stringent government regulations regarding safety and emission reductions, and rising traffic congestion are some of the factors that are compelling all the industries to build more sustainable business environments. The impact of these factors has been the most on the automotive industry with this decade being the most disruptive one with several megatrends collectively transforming the industry. Among many megatrends, the most noticeable ones are autonomous, emission-free mobility, fuel efficiency, sharing, and connected vehicles. Today, almost all the major automakers are putting efforts for the development of vehicles addressing most of these trends. 

    Among these megatrends, the development of fuel-efficient vehicle is equally imperative which has efficaciously been being unraveled by automakers by making essential changes in the materials, vehicle design, geometry, aerodynamics, etc. They have been meticulously leveraging the potential of fluoropolymers in the critical sections of vehicle in order to address the tightening carbon emission standards of government or regulatory authorities regarding fuel efficiency enhancements.
