Market Overview:

The global polysulphone market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for polysulphone from various end-use industries, such as mechanical, food industry, electrical and chemical. Polysulfone (PSU) is a high-performance engineering thermoplastic with excellent resistance to heat and chemicals. It has good dimensional stability and creep resistance over a wide temperature range. These properties make it an ideal material for applications that require high performance and durability. Some of the key players operating in the global polysulphone market are BASF SE (Germany), Solvay SA (Belgium), SABIC Innovative Plastics BVBA (Netherlands), Mitsubishi Rayon Co., Ltd.(Japan) and Evonik Industries AG(Germany).

Global Polysulphone (PSU) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

polysulphone (PSU) is a synthetic polymer made from the monomers sulfone and ethylene oxide. It is used in the manufacture of various plastic products, including tubing, bottles, and medical devices.


Polysulphone (PSU) is a naturally occurring polymer, extracted from the roots of the plant species Sophora. It has high demand in agriculture and pharmaceutical industries owing to its unique properties such as high water retention and swelling ability. PSF acts as an important additive for polymers used in agricultural applications including granular fertilizers, crop protection chemicals & seed coating among others.

Polyarylsulfone and Polyethersulfone:

Polyarylsulfone (PAS) and Polyethersulfone (PES) are two different types of polymers used in the manufacturing of polysulphone. They have similar structures but vary in terms of their molecular weight, average composition as well as chemical properties. PES has higher melting point than PAS and is also resistant to hydrolysis whereas PAS is more soluble in organic solvents.

Application Insights:

Mechanical was the largest application segment in 2016 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Polysulphone-based mechanical components are used in a wide range of applications, such as pumps, valves, gaskets and seals. Increasing demand for polysulphone from various industries including oil & gas and chemical is anticipated to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

The food industry emerged as one of the major application segments in 2016 with a share of around 15% by revenue that year. The product has gained popularity due to its excellent properties including high strength withstand temperature change which makes it suitable for use in frozen foods packaging among other uses like bakery products packaging where temperatures need not be below 0°C or above 60°C respectively.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global polysulphone market in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to rising product demand from automotive, electrical and electronics, industrial machinery, packaging, construction and food industries. China is one of the largest consumers of polysulphones in this region owing to high demand from various end-use industries coupled with low manufacturing cost as compared to other countries.

North America accounted for a significant share in 2016 due to growing product adoption by various end-use industries such as medical devices, consumer goods including automobiles and building & construction materials such as cement which are experiencing high demand due to rapid urbanization across U.S., Mexico, and Canada are expected drive industry expansion over next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive, electrical and electronics, and medical sectors
  • Growing application of PSU in filtration membranes for water treatment and purification
  • Rising popularity of PSU in packaging films due to its excellent gas barrier properties
  • Increasing use of PSU in optical fiber cables owing to its superior transmission characteristics
  • Proliferation of new product applications using PSU across a wide range of industries
