Polyphenylene Sulfide Market share research by
applications and regions for 2017-2024: Global Market
The global Polyphenylene Sulfide Market share report provides numbers for applications and
regional segments of the industry covering historical as well as forecast data for decision
Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) is semi crystalline polymer with high temperature and consists
of several aromatic rings which are linked with other. The synthetic fiber produced from the
product are known to deliver high thermal and chemical resistance coupled with high
mechanical and temperature properties. It is thermoplastic in nature and exhibits specialized
features including flame retardance, high heat deflection and excellent dimensional stability.
It is also known for constant service temperature which mostly ranges from 1800ºC to 2400ºC.
Polyphenylene sulfide is commercially in various forms and grades including fibers,
compounds, films, filaments, and coatings. Its resins are usually strengthened with several
specifically glass fibers and reinforcing materials to enhance its thermal and mechanical
properties. These compounds mostly find usage in injection molding processes. An unfilled
product resin can be melt down and blow up to manufacture several fabrics and fibers that are
utilize for flame-resistant clothing, filtration media and conveyor belts.
On the basis of types, polyphenylene sulfide market is segmented into virgin and recycled
categories. Recycled product is cheaper than the virgin product. However, it possesses inferior
properties and complex impurities. Applications aid to product manufacturers in terms of cost
benefits and increasing environmental regulations will also foster the rising demand for virgin
product. Furthermore, it is preferred by various end user including automotive, filter bag,
electrical and electronics and other special product markets, it is manufactured on reasonable
cost coupled with low environmental risks. Also, considering fall in prices of products in the
recent years the polyphenylene sulfide market size will grow.
Automotive industry is the chief driver contributing to high growth rates of the global
polyphenylene sulfide market demand. It is used in various common and newly developed
automobile applications including rear windshield glazing, instrument panels, headlight lens,
door panels, wheel covers, center consoles, roof modules, interior trims, door handles,
bumpers and housings. It is also used in other automotive applications including electrical
components, chassis, powertrain and trim components. Major driver for the polyphenylene
sulfide market growth in automotive industry comes from flexibility in design, ease of assembly
during production and weight reduction potential. Growing demand for high performance
materials in various applications in an automotive engine compartment is also propelling the
polyphenylene sulfide market share in the automotive industry.
Asia Pacific is expected to observe high growth in demand due to economic advancement in
the region coupled with increased product requirements from electrical & electronics, filter
baggage and automotive industries. China is expected to lead the regional polyphenylene
sulfide market owing to rise in its product imports to meet demand. Various crucial players
including both global and local players are expanding their manufacturing bases in the country
due to high availability of low waged employees.
Japan is one of the largest producer of these resins globally and is expected to continue this
trend in a positive way. Presence of well-equipped manufacturing plants with latest technology
favors polyphenylene sulfide market growth in the country. High product manufacturing rate
in the country is creating an oversupply scenario in the overall polyphenylene sulfide market.
With the definite capacity, these polyphenylene sulfide market players are anticipated to
operate at low operating margins to generate future expansions depending on the rising
Some of the dominant polyphenylene sulfide market players include Toray, Lumena, Chevron
Phillips Chemical, Bayer, FORTRAN, INITZ, Solvay, SABIC, Chengdu Letian Plastics and
Other prominent players are Haohua Honghe Chemical, SK Chemicals, Celanese, Zhejiang
NHU, AETNA PLASTICS, Jiangsu Ruitai Technology¸ Kureha, RTP, DIC, Toyobo, Daicel and
Lion Idemitsu Composites.
