The Fluorochemicals market is continually expanding and the following factors are driving industry growth:

  • growth in urbanisation supported by upgraded living standards leading to rapid adoption of commercial refrigeration systems, including mobile ACs, chillers and domestic cooling systems.
  • increase in installations of industrial chilling installations to maintain industrial equipment which need cold surroundings.
  • cost-effective and energy efficient aluminium production. Stringent environmental policies regarding vehicle emission has led to rise in demand for aluminium to reduce vehicle weight.
  • fluorine polymers are used in blend with other polymers to impart high surface energy, providing water repellency and additional lubricity to the parts and components made from the blends. Additionally, these compounds have application in the electronic industry for semiconductor, screen display and monitors manufacturing.
