Polyphenylene Sulphide Market | IndustryARC
Booming Automobile Industry Will Contribute to the Polyphenylene Sulphide Market Growth.

The Polyphenylene Sulphide Market globally is forecast to reach US$1.9 billion by 2027 after growing at a CAGR of 8.9% during 2022-2027. Polyphenylene sulphide is an organic polymer that exhibits robust properties such as electrical insulation, corrosion resistance, and high performance thermoplastic property. It is used extensively in the automobile industry for the manufacturing of several auto components and parts such as gaskets, pump parts, valves, bushings, and many more. The automobile industry is booming with high production and sales and this will drive the growth of the market in the forecast period. For instance, as per the stats by India Brand Equity Foundation, in 2020, India was the fifth-largest automobile market with 3.49 million units sold combinedly in the passenger and commercial vehicles segment. Furthermore, owing to its exceptional dimensional stability and low density, polyphenylene sulphide is widely used in multiple appliances such as toasters, air conditioners, microwaves, steam iron, etc. The appliances industry globally is expanding with increasing sales and this will drive the growth of the market in the forecast period. For instance, as per the data by India Brand Equity Foundation, the appliance and consumer electronics industry projected to double to reach US$ 21.18 billion by 2025. The high cost associated with polyphenylene sulphide might hamper the market’s growth in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

The polyphenylene sulphide market was badly affected by the COVID-19 with challenges such as disturbances in the supply chain and idling of factories surfaced amid the pandemic. Market players adopted new strategies to withstand the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and maintain a stable business operation. Many companies still reported about the adverse impact of the pandemic on their key business even after modifying the work patterns. For instance, as per the FY2019 Financial Reports (Period April 1, 2019 – March 31, 2020) by Kureha Corporation, the company stated a drop in revenue due to a decline in polyphenylene sulphide (PPS). The market displayed decent growth towards the end of 2020 with demand for PPS increased from key end-use industries. Going forward, the market is projected to witness significant demand owing to the expanding automobile and appliances industry.

Polyphenylene Sulphide Market – By Type 

Linear PPS dominated the polyphenylene sulphide market in 2021 and is growing at a CAGR of 9.1% in the forecast period. This type of polyphenylene sulphide comes with nearly double the molecular weight of regular PPS. The high molecular chain length results in elongation, impact strength, and high tenacity. Owing to such robust properties, market players and research organizations are engaging in the higher implementation of linear PPS in the market. For instance, as per the September 2019 journal by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a linear PPS powder with a melting point of 278 °C grade 1330C and a melt flow rate of 250 g/10 min was used in the analysis of the effect of the light spectral composition and temperature on the color change characteristics during the irradiation of polyphenylene sulfide in the SUNTEST apparatus. Such increasing usage of linear PPS will increase its demand in the polyphenylene sulphide market in the forecast period.

Polyphenylene Sulphide Market – By End Use Industry 

The automotive industry dominated the polyphenylene sulphide market in 2021 and is growing at a CAGR of 9.4% in the forecast period. Polyphenylene sulphide which is an organic polymer is used in the automobile industry in a wide range of applications covering fuel injection systems, coolant systems, air intake systems, valves, bearings, and many more. The robust qualities of polyphenylene sulphide such as electrical insulation and high performance thermoplastic property make it a suitable replacement for metals in the automobile industry. The automobile industry is projected to be on a progressive track in the forecast period as well and this will drive the growth of the market. For instance, according to the statistics by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, the annual sales volume of new energy vehicles in China is anticipated to touch 3 million units by 2025 which was 1.2 million units in 2019. Similarly, as per the June 2021 report by European Automobile Manufacturers Association, in May 2021, registrations in the European passenger cars segment increased by 53.4% compared to the same month in 2020. This growing automobile industry globally will increase the higher uses of polyphenylene sulphide in various automobile components and this will contribute to the growth of the market in the forecast period. 

Polyphenylene Sulphide Market – By Geography 

The Asia-Pacific region held the largest market share in the sulphide market in 2021 with a market share of up to 34%. The high demand for polyphenylene sulphide is attributed to the booming automobile sector in this region. For instance, according to the report by the India Brand Equity Foundation, sales in the passenger vehicles segment in the Indian market surged as 261,633 units sold in April 2021, acquiring a market share of 12.9%. Similarly, according to the statistics by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, in September 2021, production of Chinese commercial vehicles reached 310000 units, surging 35.5% month on month. Such a boost in the production and sales of automobiles will increase the use of polyphenylene sulphide in various automobile parts and components. The North American region will witness significant demand for polyphenylene sulphide owing to the rise in the region’s appliances industry.

Polyphenylene Sulphide Market Drivers 

Expanding appliances industry will drive the growth of the market 

The appliances industry is one of the largest consumers of the organic polymer polyphenylene sulphide.
