Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) film is a highly inert thermoplastic fluoropolymer film, which is made from polymerization of vinylidene difluoride. This film possesses properties such as easy of processing; high resistance to chemicals such as chlorine, bromine, fluorine, iodine, and strong acids at high temperatures; flame retardant, inert to radiation & UV; resistance to microbiological organisms; and resistance to abrasion. These films find applications in many industries such as chemical & nuclear, food & beverage, electrical, automotive, and other industries.
Increase in use of PVDF films in many industries has fueled their demand, thereby driving the market growth. Furthermore, the inert nature of the PVDF to chemical attacks at high temperature boosts the demand for PVDF films. However, high cost and incompatibility with glass fiber have restrained the market growth. Development of higher strength and stiffer PVDF films is expected to provide growth opportunity for the market.
