Polyethylene furanoate Market: Introduction
Polyethylene furanoate also known with a chemical name of poly (ethylene 2, 5-furandicarboxylate) falls under the category of bio based polymer. Being derived from bio based sources makes polyethylene furanoate based products 100 % recyclable. The synthesis of polyethylene furanoate is done through the copolymerization of 2, 5-furandicarboxylic acid along with ethylene glycol via polycondensation. Polyethylene furanoate has been considered as the potential substitute for fossil fuel based polyesters. In the global marketplace polyethylene furanoate is considered as a next generation polyesters.
Polyethylene furanoate exhibits astonishing properties such as barrier against oxygen, carbon dioxide & water, high glass transition temperature & lower melting point when compared to conventional plastics. Also, polyethylene furanoate shows better tensile strength and requires less additives than polyester during formulation. With these above said properties, polyethylene furanoate is turning over as a choice of material in numerous number of application such as it is preferred as the raw material for bottle grade resins for beverage containers, used as a raw material for fibers & films. With better barrier properties polyethylene furanoate based films are getting attracted for the storage purpose of food items. Polyethylene furanoate based films enables the increased shelf life of the food products along with keeping its nutritious value intact. Moreover, polyethylene furanoate can be incorporated into the polyester recycle streams at up to 5% polyethylene furanoate with negligible effect on the properties of recycled PET.
Polyethylene furanoate Market: Market Dynamics
Polyethylene furanoate is gaining advantages and replacing commercial plastics such as polyesters & polypropylene in the market place in the last few years. It has been expected that the same roadmap for the consumption of polyethylene furanoate in various applications has to be followed in the next 8-10 years. Main reason implicit behind gaining adoption and attraction of polyethylene furanoate in the commercial
marketplace is its numerous exceptional properties than conventional polymers such as better barrier properties, thermal & mechanical properties.
