Global Polyphenylene Ether (PPE) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A polyphenylene ether (PPE) is a high-performance thermoplastic polymer with excellent mechanical and thermal properties. It is used in engineering applications where toughness, strength, and heat resistance are required.

Modified Polypheylene Ether (MPPE):

Modified polypheylene ether (MPPE) is a kind of thermoplastic elastomer. It has high resistance to chemicals, such as solvents, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols and ketones. MPPE can be easily processed by injection molding, extrusion blow molding and film & sheet extrusion techniques.

PPE Resin:

PPE resin is a type of synthetic rubber that is manufactured using polyphenylene ether as a base polymer. PPE resins are used in various end-use industries such as automotive, construction, electrical & electronics and general industrial among others.

Application Insights:

Automotive was the largest application segment in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to its rising demand for lightweight materials with superior properties such as flexibility, thermal insulation, high strength-to-weight ratio and durability. PPE resins are used in automotive industry for manufacturing exterior components including hoods, roofs, trunk lids and decklids among others.

The household appliances segment accounted for 13.3% share of global revenue in 2016 due to increasing use of polyphenylene ether (PPE) compounds as an alternative to PVC compounds due largely in part that they are more durable than their plastic counterparts while offering better heat resistance properties which make them suitable for use across various applications from hoses & tubing assembly laminates through kitchenware & bathroom fittings all the way upholstery products such as chair cushions along with other soft goods such as carpet backing fabric or padding material among others.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to rising demand from end-use industries such as automotive, automation, electronics, and PPE. China is one of the major countries contributing towards regional growth owing to increasing investments in research & development activities for new product developments along with growing consumer disposable income levels.

The Asia Pacific was followed by Europe which accounted for a share of more than 23% in 2016 owing to high demand from several major application industries including automotive, household appliances, automation and electronic devices. Countries such as Germany are anticipated to drive regional growth on account of rising automobile production coupled with technological advancements across various applications areas including fluid engineering and chemical processing equipment manufacturing that will have a positive impact on industry expansion over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from automotive and electrical & electronics industries: Polyphenylene Ether (PPE) is extensively used in the manufacturing of automotive parts and components due to its excellent mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties. It is also used as an insulation material in electrical & electronics products. This is expected to drive the growth of the PPE market in the coming years.
  • Rising demand for lightweight materials: With stringent regulations being imposed on carbon emissions, automobile manufacturers are increasingly looking for lightweight materials that can help reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Polyphenylene Ether (PPE) offers excellent weight-to-strength ratio, making it a preferred choice for various automotive applications.
  • Growing popularity of green vehicles: The popularity of green vehicles is increasing at a rapid pace across the globe as they offer superior performance as well as environmental benefits over traditional gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles. Polyphenylene Ether (PPE) finds extensive use in electric & hybrid vehicles due to its high heat resistance and flame retardancy properties. This is likely to boost the growth of PPE market in coming years..
