In the contemporary era, wherein the end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, electrical, and electronics are accelerating at a fast pace, there is a trending transition from the usage of conventional materials such as metals and ceramics to lightweight plastics. So, the heat resistant polymers such as fluoropolymers, polyphenylene sulfides, polyether ether ketones, and polyimides are enticing significant interest in multifarious industrial applications as they are light in weight and resistant to degradation at high temperatures. Aerospace and automotive manufacturing companies are continuously engaged in the adoption of lightweight plastics to decrease the overall weight of the vehicle, eventually to increase the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Moreover, the fuel systems engine components, coolant systems, sockets, transmission components, and brake systems, which are exposed to higher temperatures and harsh environments, can be manufactured using the aforementioned polymers. Therefore, the incessantly increasing demand for heat resistant and lightweight polymers in the automotive and aerospace industries is considered to be the prime factor for the growth of the heat resistant polymers market. Additionally, the tremendously increasing number of automobiles and aeroplanes across the world will obviously foster the growth of the market. For instance, the airline industry will need more than 44,000 new commercial aeroplanes by 2038.
The heat resistant polymers market was valued at $11 billion in 2018. Furthermore, the demand for heat resistant polymers is poised to propel at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period 2019-2025.
Asia-Pacific Region Providing Promising Prospects for Heat Resistant Market Growth—
