Polyphenylene Sulfide market by application (Automotive, Electrical & Electronics, Industrial, Aerospace, Medical, Healthcare) – forecast till 2025.

Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) is a flexible material that gives molded components the ability to meet exceptionally demanding criteria. This thermoplastic using PPS has outstanding thermal stability, superior toughness, inherent flame resistance, and excellent chemical resistance. It also has high mechanical strength, impact resistance, dimensional stability as well as good electrical properties. Owing to its high temperature resistance, high toughness, good dimensional stability and good rigidity PPS is used in automotive & aviation sector and electric & electronics sector.

PPS has seen strong growth in automobile sector due to its ability to replace metals and other types of plastic.  Apart from these, PPS has applications in medical/healthcare and industrial sector. The increasing demand for tough and ecofriendly material is the major driving force of the market. PPS has become more popular than conventional plastics. The rising demand for PPS 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 factors that boosts the growth of the 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 push 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. Furthermore, the product provides sterilizable healthcare and laboratory equipment.

However, the easy availability alternatives such as polyamide and high cost of polyphenylene sulfide are major restraints to the growth of market.

Nevertheless, the growing demand of PPS in various sector especially automotive is pushing forward the market. A normal gasoline automotive requires nearly 1 kg of PPS, whereas hybrid and electric automotive require nearly 5 kgs of PPS, which is used as a metal replacement. Moreover, with increasing regulations to control particulate matter, the use of PPS filter bags market has huge growth potential.

Market segmentation:

The PPS market is segmented on the basis of application, type and region.

On the basis of type it is segmented into reinforced and unreinforced.

Based on application the market is segmented into automotive, electrical/electronics, aviation, healthcare and others.

Regional Analysis:

The global PPS market is segmented into four major regions, North America, Europe, Asia-pacific and Latin America, Middle east & Africa.
