The global perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) coatings market was valued at US$1.925 billion in 2021.

The perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) coatings are made from perfluoroalkoxy polymers and offer exceptional chemical resistance, high-temperature stability, low friction properties, and non-stick surface characteristics. Owing to their beneficial features, these coatings have several applications across various industries where corrosion protection, chemical resistance, and high-performance surface properties are required. The demand for PFA coatings is primarily driven by their ability to provide robust protection against corrosive chemicals, making them a preferred choice in industries such as chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, food processing, and semiconductor manufacturing. Additionally, their thermal stability enables their use in high-temperature applications, including automotive, aerospace, electrical, and industrial equipment. Key players in the market include prominent companies such as Chemours Company, Delta Coatings & Linings, Inc., and AGC Inc.


  • Growing advancements in 3D printing technology

The rapid advancement of 3D printing technology creates opportunities for high-performance coatings that can enhance the surface properties of printed objects. PFA coatings can be applied to 3D-printed objects to improve their chemical resistance, smoothness, and non-stick properties. The rapid expansion of 3D printing across industries such as aerospace, automotive, and medical is likely to drive demand for PFA coatings to enhance the performance and durability of printed parts thereby augmenting the overall market growth.

  • Increasing demand for non-stick coatings in industrial applications

Industries such as automotive, manufacturing, and packaging are increasingly seeking non-stick coatings to improve operational efficiency and reduce material waste. PFA coating non-stick properties make it valuable in applications where sticking, friction, and material build-up can hamper production processes. The demand for PFA coatings in industrial applications, such as molds, conveyor belts, and machinery components, is expected to grow as companies strive to optimize manufacturing processes.

Key developments.

  • In December 2020, PPG, a global paint and coatings company, and a major company in the PFA market entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Tikkurila, a leading Nordic paint and coatings company, in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately €1.1 billion. PPG has expertise in the coatings industry and its wide-ranging product portfolio positions it as a key player that can offer various coating solutions to customers across different industries, including those that utilize PFA coatings for their specific requirements. The acquisition was further completed in June 2021. The merger between PPG and Tikkurila aided in enhancing PPG's market reach in regions of northern and eastern Europe where its decorative presence was limited. The acquisition provided new growth opportunities, cross-selling synergies, and access to Tikkurila's high-quality decorative products and distribution capabilities while offering Tikkurila access to PPG's industrial and protective coatings expertise.
  • In January 2021, PPG announced its definitive agreement to acquire VersaFlex, a leading manufacturer of polyuria and epoxy as well as perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) and polyurethane coatings for various applications. The acquisition was completed in February 2021 and expanded PPG's product offering and complemented its existing portfolio. VersaFlex's expertise and manufacturing capabilities in polyurea and flooring coatings aligned well with PPG's strategic growth plans.

Based on application, the perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) coatings market is expected to witness positive growth in the semiconductor segment.

PFA coatings offer excellent electrical insulation properties which is a critical requirement in the semiconductor industry. Additionally, they demonstrate remarkable thermal stability, making them highly suitable for semiconductor manufacturing, which involves high-temperature processes. The semiconductor market is experiencing robust growth owing to the growing demand for electronic devices and the continuous advancements in semiconductor technologies, as a result of which the demand for PFA coatings is expected to rise significantly in the coming years. The ability of PFA coatings to provide robust protection, chemical resistance, thermal stability, electrical insulation, and non-stick surface properties positions them as a preferred choice for the semiconductor industry, enabling improved product performance, reliability, and longevity.

Asia Pacific accounted for a significant share of the global perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) coatings market.

Based on geography, the perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) coatings market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. The Asia Pacific region is set to experience significant expansion in the perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) coatings market, propelled by a range of distinctive elements. Governments and industries in countries like Japan and South Korea are actively promoting eco-friendly practices and stringent chemical safety standards. PFA coatings, with their exceptional chemical resistance and non-toxic properties, align with these sustainability goals, making them a preferred choice for various applications in the region. Furthermore, the rising investments in infrastructure development projects contribute to the demand for PFA coatings. Rapid urbanization and industrialization in the Asia Pacific are increasing the need for corrosion-resistant coatings in sectors such as transportation infrastructure, construction, and chemical processing plants.
