Polyphenylene sulfide is a polymer that is organic in nature and mainly consists of the aromatic rings which are linked with sulfides. The synthetic fibers manufactured from polyphenylene sulfide are known to offer high resistance to the thermal and chemical attacks. Polyphenylene sulfide is a crystallized thermoplastic polymer that exhibits characteristics such as excellent chemical resistance, high heat deflection temperature, flame retardance, and outstanding dimensional stability. Polyphenylene sulfide is also known for its continuous service temperature which mainly ranges from 1800C to 2400C. Polyphenylene sulfide mainly finds applications in the automobiles, electrical and electronics, household and industrial appliances among others.
The growing automobile industry is expected to boost the overall growth of the polyphenylene sulfide market. China is the largest consumer of polyphenylene sulfide owing to the growing electrical and automobile industry. Polyphenylene sulfide is widely used in manufacturing under-the-hood of automobiles, especially owing to its high temperature resistance characteristics. The polymer also exhibits high fuel and flame resistance which further makes it a perfect choice for manufacturing various automobile parts. China is growing as one of the major producer of the electrical and electronic goods, and thus in turn is the major consumer of polyphenylene sulfide which is finds its major applications in the electrical and other industrial and household appliances. Many leading automobile manufacturers have outsourced the manufacturing of automobile parts to China, thus augmenting the overall increase in the demand for polyphenylene sulfide in China. The presence of some of the major automobile manufacturers in Japan has helped it to be the next major consumer of polyphenylene sulfide. The increasing demand for filter bags in coal boilers and dust ch
