PEEK Filament Market: Overview and Dynamics
Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) is a colorless, organic thermoplastic polymer which is primarily used for 3D printing. PEEK filaments’ unique qualities such as exceptional impact strength and high durability makes it ideal choice in 3D printing applications. Other bundled advantages like high chemical resistivity and flame retardancy has made PEEK filament an ideal material in range of applications. PEEK filament offers impressive resistivity against high temperatures ranging up to 260o C due to which it is used in numerous applications which require equipment having ability to withstand extreme temperature conditions. Attributed to aforementioned facts, global PEEK filament market is poised to embark on a positive growth trajectory, registering a CAGR of ~5% over the forecast period (2020-2030).
On the basis of end use industry, automotive and medical industries are set to emerge as growth epicenter in global PEEK filament market during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to momentum towards light weighting and vehicle electrification. PEEK filament being a semi-crystalline material with exceptional mechanical strength has been extensively used in automotive applications. PEEK filament’s light weight properties and ability to improve the performance of the electronics within a vehicle is set to bolster its demand over the forecast period. Further, because of PEEK filaments robustness it is in high demand from range of applications including bearings, compressor plate valves, cable insulation, piston parts, pumps, HPLC columns, and others. However, PEEK filament not only has high cost but also requires high tech 3D printer to utilize its capabilities which may impact its adoption among end users till midterm forecast.
COVID Impact Insights
The spread of the coronavirus has nearly forced all countries to impose lockdowns and strict social distancing measures which has disrupted every industry and market so the PEEK Filament market across the globe.
