The demand of PEEK is expected to be driven by introduction of electric vehicles, increase in use of automated vehicles, development in 3D printing technology, regulation regarding CO2 emission and increase in standard of living”.

The report titled Global PEEK Market Outlook to 2025- By Type (Glass Filled, Unfilled and Carbon Filled), By Application (Oil & Gas, Electronics & Electrical, Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Medical and others) and By Region (Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America, South America and MEA)by Ken Research suggests that the Global PEEK Industry is booming with expanding sales volume owing to increase in number of expired patents, increase in production capacity, increase in awareness regarding environmental protection, fluctuating oil price and technological changes in the electronics industry. The market is expected to register growth at CAGR of 7.2% and 8.0% by revenue and sales volume respectively during 2018-2025F.

Increasing Global PEEK Production Capacity: The top 3 producers of PEEK have increased their production capacity in 2014-2016. In 2014, Victrex introduced a new production plant which increased the company’s production capacity to 7,150 tons per annum. In 2015, Evonik increased its PEEK production capacity by 25.0%. In 2016, Solvay increased its PEEK production capacity to more than 2,500 tons per annum by expanding production in its existing plant.

Increasing Environmental Consciousness: Increasing awareness regarding minimization of CO2 emissions has driven the producers in aerospace and automotive industry to use light weight, fuel efficient materials like PEEK. Increase in fuel efficiency leads to reduction in fuel cost which generally accounts for 35% of the total cost to the aerospace companies. For instance, according to an industry report, replacing 100 meters of metal tubing per plane by PEEK tubes can lead to savings of up to USD 1.6 million in fuel costs and 5,500 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

Technological Developments: PEEK is a material chosen by producers to develop innovative goods with state of art technology. For instance, PEEK is used by Dyson to produce impellers for vacuum cleaners to make the machine sound proof and to increase the air flow. PEEK in the mobile industry has lead to development of thinner, lighter and smarter devices. PEEK in acoustic film application in mobile phones has helped developers to get better sound quality in small space. PEEK is also used in electromechanical components of mobile phones as it provides better antenna signals to phones with metal backs and it enables production of sleek new designs with thin-wall components that can replace or integrate with metals for streamlined manufacturing.
