Polysulfone Market Size Analysis

According to a research survey conducted by ChemView Consulting, in 2022, the Global Polysulfone Market was worth US$ 2,100  Mn and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.0% over the forecast period. The market is expected to hit US$ 3,900 Mn by 2030 end.

The growing demand for high-performance thermoplastics from different end-use sectors, such as medical devices, automotive, electrical & electronics, aerospace, and others, propels the polysulfone market forward. Polysulfones are amorphous thermoplastics with phenyl and biphenyl groups connected by ether and sulfone that are thermally stable.

Market Dynamic


The polysulfone market is quickly expanding due to its numerous uses in the food and beverage, automotive, electronics, and electrical industries. Polysulfones are used in coffee makers, juice mixers, and grinders. Polysulfone is used as a mixer in automobiles to make vehicle headlights. It is also utilized in the electronics and electrical industries to make refrigerator parts, LED components, washing machine parts, and many other things.

The polysulfone market is opportunistic due to its application versatility compared to other engineering polymers. Demand from the medical device, automotive, and electrical and electronics sectors are driving the expansion of the polysulfone market.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the worldwide polysulfone market. The vehicle industry is one of the largest purchasers of polysulfone. The pandemic has had an immediate and severe impact on the worldwide automobile industry, significantly reducing polysulfone demand.

The worldwide economic downturn induced by the pandemic has reduced demand for electrical equipment in the vehicle, construction, and medical industries. As a result, demand for polysulfone in the electrical equipment industry has decreased.
