Global fluorochemicals market to be extensively characterized by a strict regulatory framework and sustainable product developments
Global fluorochemicals market is one of the most opportunistic yet debatable business spheres of recent times. The trend is driven by the product being a subject of questions by regulatory authorities on grounds of its environmental viability. The United States EPA is taking significant measures to limit four PFASs (poly and perfluorinated alkyl compounds) that are responsible for contaminating drinking water in at least twenty states across the nation. The move marks a remarkable influence of the regulatory framework in swaying the fluorochemicals industry trends.
U.S. Fluorochemicals Market Size, By Product, 2017 & 2024, (Kilo Tons)
A major shift in the competitive landscape of fluorochemicals market is underway with renowned biggies joining forces to come up with solutions that are in sync with the sustainability trends. Chemours’ strategic tie up with Arkema bears a testimony to the aforementioned declaration. Reportedly, the American fluorochemical industry giant has signed an agreement with Arkema for distributing XP40 in the European Union to address the growing GWP (global warming potential) refrigerants demand under the F-gas regulation. Not to mention, refrigerant applications contribute a chunk to the global fluorochemicals market share and is anticipated to exceed USD 30 billion by 2024.
