Polyarylsulfones are majorly used medical, automotive, household/food technology, electrical & electronics, mechanical engineering and others. Polyarylsulfones are high resistance to chemical, high temperature and good hydrolysis, which boost their consumption in various industries.
North America is the global leader in the consumption of polyarylsulfones and this dominance is expected to continue till 2017, and after that Asia-Pacific will be the leader in the consumption of polyarylsulfones. U.S. is the key market in North America, consuming more than half of the demand for polyarylsulfones in the region. Increase in the consumption of polyarylsulfones has been observed in Asia-Pacific due to continued industrialization and rise in the medical and automotive sector of the region. The continuous growth and innovation, along with industry consolidations, are projected to ascertain a bright future for the industry.
Polysulfone is one of the major types of polyarylsulfones market. It has a glass transition temperature of 187 degree Celsius and absorbs very less moisture. Polyphenylsulfone is the costliest among the three and has the least market share in comparison to polysulfone and polyethersulfone.
