Polyphenylene Sulfide Market
Research Report- Forecast to 2023
Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) is an organic polymer consisting of aromatic rings linked with
sulfides. The distinguished properties of PPS such as flame retardant, chemical resistant,
corrosion resistant, dimensional stability, and low moisture absorption are responsible for
substitution of heavy metals, mainly required in major end-use industries such as automotive and
aerospace. The surging demand for the product in the automotive and electrical industry is
expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. The increased fuel efficiency
and weight reduction potential by the use of PPS in automotive are one of the major drivers of
the global polyphenylene sulfide market. Additionally, increasing consumption of the product in
electrical and electronic appliances such as non-stick cookware, fans & blowers, and hairdryer
components are likely to favor the market growth. It is an entirely recyclable, environment-
friendly compound and a fine alternative to other polymers such as epoxy, ABS, PTFE, PEI,
PVDF, and others.
Radical improvements in advanced avionics, operating efficiency, and use of new electrical
systems are rapidly changing the manufacturing of the aircraft. Advanced platforms, which are
already in the production such as Boeing’s 787, 737 MAX including A330, and others are
expected to boost the market growth.
The extensive use of filter bags in steel, chemical, and thermal plants is fuelling the global
market of polyphenylene sulfide. Furthermore, the product provides sterilizable healthcare and
laboratory equipment, which may effectively rise the market growth.
However, rising demand for substitutes such as PEI, polyamide, and PEEK coupled with the
high cost of polyphenylene sulfide may restrain the market growth.
