Dublin, April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) - A Global Market Overview" report has been added to's offering.

Robust Growth in Demand from Electrical & Electronics Sector to Lead Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) Market to Reach 130K Metric Tons by 2026

Asia-Pacific is the world's largest volume market for PVDF with an estimated 62% volume share in 2021 and further projected to record the fastest 2021-2026 CAGR of 16.2%.

The impact of coronavirus pandemic has evident across all regions, and the demand for Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) witnessed a moderate year-over-year increase of 3% globally in 2020. Consumption of PVDF has decreased significantly by 5.2% in South America followed by Europe (-5.2% YOY) and North America (-4.2% YOY), while the impact was not evident in Asia-Pacific region and the demand for the same was registered a YOY growth of 8.6% in 2020, owing to the robust growth in Chinese, Japanese and South Korean lithium-ion battery separators market.

Almost all application sectors of Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) were impacted negatively by the COVID-19 pandemic, while Electrical & Electronics sector has not had any negative impact but rather demand was accelerated at a robust YOY rate of 21.6% in 2020. A year when the global economic downturn led to a sharp decline in overall vehicle sales, global sales of electrical vehicle (EV) increased by 36.4% in 2020. The overall PVDF market is expected to reach about 80K metric tons in 2022, valued at US$1.6 billion.
