Global ETFE Market Report 2022-2026: Application of Films and Sheets to Provide Growth Opportunities for Market Players –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “ETFE Market by Type (Pellets/Granules, Powder), Technology (Extrusion, Injection), Application (Films & Sheets, Wires & Cables, Tubing, Coatings), End-Use Industry (Building & Construction, Automotive, Aerospace & Defense) & Region – Global Forecast to 2026″ report has been added to from offer.

The global Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) market size is estimated at USD 334 Million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 451 Million by 2026, at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2021 and 2026. The growing use of ETFE in solar panels, replacing glass and other conventional materials, and growing demand in end-use industries are driving the demand for ETFE over the forecast period. However, ETFE is prone to puncture, transmits more sound than glass, and costs more than other conventional materials, which hampers market growth.

Pellets/Pellets are expected to be the Largest Segment by Type in the ETFE Market

Based on type, pellets/pellets are estimated to be the largest type of ETFE during the forecast period. The pellet/granule form of ETFE can be both extruded and injected to convert it into films and sheets, wires and cables and tubes, which are then used by various end-use industries such as architecture, automotive, chemical processing and others. . They have low melting points and high melting rates (MFR), making the pellets suitable for injection, extrusion, rotation and other molding processes.

Films & Sheets are expected to be the Largest Segment by Application in the ETFE Market

Films & Sheets are estimated to be the largest and fastest growing application segment in the ETFE market during the forecast period. ETFE films and sheets are resistant to temperature, aging and chemicals and have superior mechanical strength. ETFE films and sheets are now widely replacing glass in the building and construction industry due to their superior light transmission properties. ETFE sheets are most commonly found as roofing in public spaces, such as train stations, airports, educational centers, museums, conference centers and other arts structures. ETFE films are also used for the front and back sheets of photovoltaic (PV) modules. When used as faceplates for PV modules, these films help improve solar cell efficiency since they transmit 90-95% of light.

Building and construction is expected to be the largest segment by end-use industry in the ETFE market

Building & construction is estimated to be the largest end-user segment in the ETFE market during the forecast period. ETFE is mainly used in non-residential civil infrastructure and commercial buildings for roofing applications. Energy efficiency, cost control, low carbon emissions, sustainability, recyclability and green buildings are major factors influencing the construction industry. ETFE films are lightweight, economical, environmentally friendly, 100% recyclable and aesthetically preferred over glass. These properties propel the demand for ETFE films in the construction industry.

North America Accounts for the Largest ETFE Market Share by Region

North America was the largest market for ETFE in 2020. The main end users of ETFE in North America in building and construction, automotive, aerospace, electrical and electronics, nuclear and solar energy. The United States dominates the ETFE market in North America in terms of value and volume. New construction projects, greenhouse applications, steady growth in automotive and increasing photovoltaic installations in the region are driving the ETFE market in the region.

In-depth primary interviews were conducted to determine and verify the market size for several segments and sub-segments and information gathered through secondary research.
