Polyvinylidene Difluoride (PVDF) Membrane Market Overview :
Polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) is a special plastic material from the fluoropolymer family, formed by the polymerization of vinylidene difluoride. PVDF flat-sheet membranes are formed by membrane distillation (MD). These PVDF membranes are mainly used in applications having requirement of high resistance, strength, as well as purity to solvents, acids, bases, and heat. PVDF membranes find wide usage for the immobilization of proteins due to their similarity to amino acids. PVDF is an element used in high-end paints for metals. These PVDF membrane paints hold extremely good gloss & color retention. PVDF is also extensively used in films, membranes, sheets, and coatings in many end-user industries. High-growth application areas like water & wastewater treatment and rapidly growing pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are the main factors driving the growth of the PVDF membrane market.
Growing biopharmaceutical industry, high demand for PVDF membrane in water & wastewater treatment, and increasing PVDF membrane applications are the factors driving the growth of the polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) membrane market. However, huge cost of PVDF membrane may hinder the growth of the market. Moreover, rising demand in emergent markets might provide with several growth opportunities in the forecasted years.
