Market Overview

The PTFE Fabric market is a growing market with an average CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period. As of 2018, PTFE Fabric market industry is valued at 692 million USD, and it is estimated to reach 913 million USD by the year 2023. Asia Pacific (APAC) region had the largest market share of the PTFE fabric market in 2018, and its stock is projected to grow during the forecast period.

Recent Development

Researchers in Japan have now found a clean way to turn industrial polymers into adhesives by developing natural plasma treatments that allow vulcanized rubber and the plastic PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) to adhere to one another, or other materials. Under high pressure, hydrogen bonds form between silanol and the oxygen-containing functional groups on the treated PTFE. Strong covalent bonds further link the two polymers together, even with no adhesive.

Market Drivers and Restraints:


  1. Massive recent industrialization and urbanization in countries like India and China are driving the PTFE fabric Market in the APAC region.
  2. The automotive sector has recently witnessed a massive demand for PTFE fiberglass due to its strength and durability.
  3. Construction industry’s demand for PTFE material is a massive driver of the market due to the incredible strength of PTFE materials. PTFE’s fiberglass, for example, is around 12 times stronger than steel.


  1. The high cost of PTFE fabrics compared to PVC coated fabrics is a vast market restraint, especially for price-sensitive markets of APAC region.
  2. Most of the raw materials used for PTFE products are petroleum products, whose price is very volatile.

PTFE Fabric Market Segmentation Analysis:

By Type:

Based on the type, the PTFE Fabric market is divided into:

  1. PTFE Coated Fabric
  2. Nonwoven Fabric
  3. PTFE Fiber-Made Fabric

Based on the type, Nonwoven Fabric has the largest market share and is projected to remain so during the forecast period. PTFE-based nonwoven fabrics are extensively used in composites manufacturing. Apart from this, it finds application as a component in the apparel, healthcare, and industrial applications.

By End-Use industry:

Based on the end-use industry, the PTFE Fabric market is divided into:

  1. Food
  2. Construction
  3. Filtration

Based on the end-use industry, food segment had the highest market share in 2018. Also, this segment has the highest growth rate in the forecast period. Anti-friction and non-flammability features of PTFE fabric make it very attractive for the food industry. Along with that, PTFE is FDA approved. Therefore it is safe to be used in the food industry.

PTFE Fabric Market Geographical Analysis:

The Asia Pacific region is the largest and fastest growing market for PTFE Fabric across the globe which is majorly driven by the growing demand from end-use industries, such as food, construction, and filtration. The ever-increasing disposable income and growing population of the APAC is the major driving force behind this market surge. Along with this, the APAC region is home to leading PTFE fabric manufacturers, such as Chukoh Chemical Industries (Japan) and Daikin Industries (Japan). China has several domestic PTFE fabric manufacturers and is amongst the leading exporters of PTFE fabrics in this region.

PTFE Fabric Market Key Players:

Taconic (US), FIBERFLON (Turkey), Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (France), W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (US), Chukoh Chemical Industries (Japan), Daikin Industries (Japan), Sefar AG (Switzerland), Fothergill Group (UK), Birdair (US), W.F. Lake Corp. (US), Aetna Plastics Corporation (US), CENO Tec GmbH (Germany), and Techbelt (UK) are some of the leading players operating in the PTFE fabric market.
