Global Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) Market Size, Share, Growth, Global Trends, Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2027

Price: 3600/- USD | Published Date: September 15, 2020 |

The global polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) market has been projected to grow at the CAGR of 9% market during 2020-2027. PPS is polymerized by using a 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 equipment and energy consumption.

Market Insights:

PPS is used in various applications, such as automotive, electrical & electronics, filter bags, aerospace, industrial, coatings, and others. In 2019, the automotive segment accounted for the largest market share, in terms of volume, followed by filter bags and electrical & electronics. The increasing automotive industry in emerging countries of Asia-Pacific is driving the polyphenylene sulfide market. Japan is the largest producer of PPS resins worldwide with the presence of manufacturing sites of major industry players in the country. North America accounted for the second-largest market share in the automotive application segment in 2019. Japan and the U.S. have the majority of the PPS resins manufacturing plants. These countries have been manufacturing more than their demand, thus creating an oversupply in the market. The filter bags application segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR between 2020 and 2027, followed by the aerospace application. With stringent principles imposed for particulate matter emissions from power plants, the need for PPS filter bags has increased, which has higher efficiencies.

Market Segment Insights:

The automotive segment accounted for more than a 26% share of the global PSS market in 2019. 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. Electrical & Electronics accounted as the second-largest application segment of PSS market in 2019. This application segment is expected to witness growth in the near future due to rising PPS applications in the manufacture of a variety of electrical components in electrical, fuel, lighting and cooling systems. Automotive is another application driving the demand for PSS in the market. Growing automotive manufacturing companies in China and Japan are contributing to the growth of the global PSS market. Other applications such as industrial, coatings, and others are also projected to boost market demand for PSS in the global market.
