Global PEEK Market Overview and Size

Technological developments and increase in environmental awareness have necessitated the application of PEEK in different industries including oil & gas, electronics & electrical, aerospace, automotive and medical. For a long time, the Global PEEK industry has observed sluggish growth in demand. But in the past couple of years, demand of PEEK is growing at a rapid pace as a result of which the global PEEK production capacity has increased. The industry is booming with expanding sales volume owing to fluctuating oil prices, increase in availability of cheaper PEEK grades and increase in environmental regulation related to CO2 emission.

Global PEEK Market Segmentation

By Type (Glass Filled, Unfilled and Carbon Filled): Glass filled grades of PEEK grabbed the highest share followed by unfilled and carbon filled grades in terms of both revenue and sales volume during the year 2018. Lower cost, better physical properties and increase in application in oil & gas and electronics & electrical industry are the key factors attributing to rapid growth in glass filled segment. With emerging applications of PEEK in medical, aerospace and food processing industry the unfilled segment is expected to grow at the fastest pace by 2025.

By Application (Oil & Gas, Electronics & Electrical, Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Medical and others): Oil & Gas industry had a highest share followed by electronics & electrical, aerospace & defense, automotive, medical and others in terms of both revenue and sales volume during the year 2018.  Fluctuating oil prices, growth in semiconductor industry, increase in air traffic and increase in environmental awareness are few of the factors driving the growth in the top 3 segments. By 2025, automotive segment is expected to grow at fastest pace in terms of sales volume. Increase in demand of electric vehicles and vehicles with automated transmission system will drive the growth in the segment.

By Region (Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America, South America and MEA): Europe is the biggest market for PEEK followed by Asia-Pacific, North America, South America and MEA in terms of sales volume during the year 2018. In terms of revenue the market is lead by Europe followed by North America, Asia-Pacific, South America and MEA during the year 2018. Booming aerospace & defense and automotive industry drive the growth in PEEK market in Europe. The PEEK market in Asia-Pacific is driven by increase in demand from electronics and semiconductor industry in the region. Surge in demand of medical grade PEEK which is the most expensive grade has driven the growth in North America in terms of revenue.

Competitive Landscape in Global PEEK Market

The market has been observed to be at the growth stage, with the competition been highly concentrated owing to the presence of only five major players including Victrex, Solvay, Evonik, Jilin Zhongyan High Performance Plastic and Panjin Zhongrun High Performance Polymer with a collective market share of around 97-98% in terms of sales volume in 2018. The competition between the companies is increasing over the years as the patents of the market leader Victrex have expired and the market is opening up for the other players. It was also observed that the companies are increasing their production capacity which is an indication of increasing competition.

Global PEEK Market Future Outlook and Projection

Global PEEK market is expected to expand significantly in terms of both sales volume and revenue by the year ending 2025. This is owing to multitude of factors namely increase in competition,  introduction of electric vehicles, increase in use of automated vehicles, development in 3D printing technology and  technological upgradation in different manufacturing processes. Growth in environmental awareness and adoption of regulation regarding CO2 emission will continue to be the major factor driving the growth in the industry.
