How PEEK market is Positioned Globally?
Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is a high performance engineered plastic which belongs to polyketone family of plastics. It is a light weight, heat resistant material with a high strength to weight ratio which makes it suitable to replace conventionally used metals such as titanium, aluminum, steel, nickel, chromium and others and also other engineering plastics such as PPS, PTFE, Nylon 66, PAI, PEI, PLA, PVF and others in oil & gas, aerospace & defense, electronics & electrical, automotive, medical, food processing and industrial manufacturing industries. For instance, Tullow Oil and TechnipFMC have successfully adopted Magma’s m-pipe which is produced using PEEK for oil exploration activities. In the aerospace industry companies like Airbus, Boeing and Hexcel have adopted PEEK as material choice for aircraft doors, engine components and other 3D printed components.
The Global PEEK market has been observed to be at the growth stage. In terms of revenue the market size has increased from USD ~ in 2013 to USD ~ IN 2018 with CAGR of ~%. Global PEEK sales volume has increased from ~ tons in 2013 to ~ tons in 2018 with CAGR of ~%.
A rapid surge in investment by the PEEK producers to increase their PEEK production capacity was observed during 2014-2016.
The global PEEK production capacity has increased from ~ tons per annum in 2004 to approximately ~ tons per annum in 2018.
The PEEK industry was recognized booming with expanding sales volume owing to increase in number of expired patents, increase in production capacity, increase in awareness regarding environmental protection, fluctuating oil price and technological changes in the electronics industry. High price of the material, competition from hybrid polymer and difficult processing conditions were recognized as few of the challenges faced in the industry.
How Global PEEK Market Is Segmented?
By Type (Glass Filled, Unfilled and Carbon Filled), on the Basis of Sales Volume and Revenue: The share of Glass filled grade of PEEK in the industry has remained the maximum followed by unfilled and carbon filled grade of PEEK. Low price and versatility in the application of glass filled grade in various industries were recognised as factors explaining dominance of glass filled segment.
