– The COVID-19 fallout is unprecedented. There is uneven impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the fluoropolymers market, due to the lockdown implemented in almost every economy across the globe to break the chain of spreading of coronavirus. This resulted in shutting off the operations, manufacturing, distribution, and retail stores. Thus, there is decrease in demand for end products from the various end-use industries due to shutdown, which in turn resulted in the sluggish growth in the current year.
– The automotive and aerospace industries are the largest consumer’s fluoropolymers globally, and due to the current COVID -9 crisis these industries have experienced a significant decline. The automotive industry is dealing with a sudden and widespread cessation of economic activity as workers are ordered to stay at home, grind production chains to a halt, and close factories. The lockout restricting people’s movement and the abrupt cessation of economic activity culminated in a significant contraction in sectorial production and GDP. Factory closures in Europe and North America are reported to have triggered the withdrawal of some millions of passenger vehicles from the production schedules. These declines in production have a cascading effect, which affects the OEMs and suppliers of material. Both of these factors have impacted fluoropolymer demand.
– The pandemic also had a significant influence on aviation manufacturing. For instance, Airbus-one of the largest commercial aircraft manufacturing firms worldwide, due to the COVID-19 pandemic has reduced its aircraft production levels by around one-third. Boeing had also posted a loss of USD 641 million in the first quarter. This greatly influenced the use of fluoropolymers used in the manufacture of new aircraft, as well as MRO operations.
– However, the demand for medical grade fluoropolymers is bombing at significant peace. Owing to corona outbreak there is high demand for testing and other health equipment. Which in turn to drive the global fluoropolymer market in near future.
