Polyether Ether KetonePolyether Ether Ketone

Growing demand for lightweight is one of the significant factors influencing PEEK market growth.

The PEEK market is expected to be valued at USD 1,225.7 Million in 2027 from USD 721.4 million in 2019, registering a CAGR of 6.8% through the forecast period, according to a recent report by Emergen Research. There is a high demand in the PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) market due to its rising demand from the automotive industry. An increasing emphasis on safety standards and eco-friendliness are key factors driving demand in the automotive industry for PEEK, which continuously focuses on lowering production costs and enhancing performance and reliability in order to provide extended guarantees.

The rising need for automotive weight reduction, fueled by the need for better mileage and lower carbon dioxide emissions, is due to the miniaturisation and functional integration of the automotive components and modules. As a result, OEMs concentrate on advanced and creative materials, such as PEEK that have lightweight and high specific strength to produce cost-effective, performance-enhanced components. In addition, PEEK is helpful in reducing maintenance, resulting in uptime and improved efficiency, with its exceptional ductility and high fatigue strength.
