Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) Market By Application (Electrical & Electronics, Automotive, Industrial, Coatings, Filtration & Filter Bags) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2015 - 2022

Published: Jun 2017 | Report Code: 57825-06-17

Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) was studied initially by Friedel and Crafts by reacting benzene with sulphur in the presence of aluminum chloride. The end product obtained through this reaction was a weak polymer with some extra sulphur linkages. Further, the scientists carried out experiments using related organo sulfur compounds and diphenyl sulfide.

Polyphenylene sulfide is polymerized by using polycondensation reaction of para-dichlorobenzene and sodium sulfide or sodium hydrosulfide in a polar solvent under elevated temperatures. This polymer is created by a combination of various elements, including dehydration reaction, sodium chloride removal reaction, exothermic reaction and high temperature pressurization reaction. This process is very capital intensive due to the high cost of equipments and energy consumption.

Polyphenylene sulfide is used in a wide range of end-use industries globally. Based on its application in several industries, the global polyphenylene sulfide market is segmented into applications such as electrical & electronics, automotive, industrial, filtration & filter bags, coatings and others. Among these, filtration and filter bags accounted for larger share of global polyphenylene sulfide market in 2016 and are expected to boost market demand in the near future. Other applications are also projected to fuel market demand for polyphenylene sulfide during the forecast period.

Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) market was valued at US$ 0.86 Bn in 2014 and is expected to reach US$ 2.0 Bn by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 13.0% during the forecast period 2016-2021.

  • Industrial
  • Coatings
  • Filtration & Filter Bags
  • Others

Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) Market

Filtration & filter bags accounted for more than 26% share of the global polyphenylene sulfide market in 2014. Strict regulations and norms in industrial sectors such as coal fired plants, thermal power plants and smoke filtration plants have led to high market penetration in the segment. The properties such as hydrolysis and resistance towards mineral and alkaline acids with effective thermal properties of polyphenylene sulfide have led to high demand in industrial filtration applications. Filtration efficiency and airflow along with high durability is anticipated to increase opportunities of filtration and filter bags in dust collectors, metal foundry bag houses and incinerators. Electrical & Electronics accounted as the second largest application segment of polyphenylene sulfide market in 2014. This application segment is expected to witness growth in the near future due to rising polyphenylene sulfide applications in the manufacture of variety of electrical components in electrical, fuel, lightning and cooling systems. Automotive is another application driving the demand for polyphenylene sulfide in the market. Growing automotive manufacturing companies in China and Japan are contributing to the growth of global polyphenylene sulfide market worldwide. Other applications such as industrial, coatings and others are also projected to boost market demand for polyphenylene sulfide in the global market.

On the basis of geography, the global polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) market is segmented into following categories,

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • Germany
    • UK
    • France
  • Asia Pacific
    • China
    • India
    • Japan
    • South Korea
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
    • Brazil
    • Middle East

Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) Market

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of global polyphenylene sulfide market in 2014. Rapid industrialization in the developing economies is the major factor driving the demand for polyphenylene sulfide in the market. Foreign investments in countries such as India, China, and Indonesia are the major factor for high penetration of polyphenylene sulfide in the Asia Pacific market. Asia Pacific is also the fastest growing region for polyphenylene sulfide market. Increasing automotive sector in the region, especially China and India are boosting the market demand for polyphenylene sulfide on a large scale, thus fueling growth of global polyphenylene sulfide market.  North America was the second largest region to boost demand for polyphenylene sulfide globally. High demand for industrial filters and filter bags in incinerators and mining is expected to fuel demand for polyphenylene sulfide in North America.  Increasing demand for high temperature flame resistant coatings is another factor contributing to the growth of global polyphenylene sulfide market. Europe accounted as the third largest market for polyphenylene sulfide due to high demand for filters in the region. Stringent government regulations in the region for industrial emissions have led to the growth of polyphenylene sulfide market in the region. Other regions such as Rest of World which include Brazil and Middle East are expected to experience steady demand but projected to fuel growth of global polyphenylene sulfide market during the forecast period from 2016 to 2022.
