United States Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the upcoming years. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is synthetic “perfluorinated carboxylic acid” and “fluorosurfactant”. It is also known as “pentadecafluorooctanoic acid or C8”. It belongs to the group of “perfluoroalkyls”. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is available as off-white or white powder with strong odor. It is fairly resistant to water, heat, grease, stains, and oil.
It is used in nonstick cookware, fire-fighting foams, water repellant clothing, stain resistant carpets and fabrics, paper and cardboard packaging, and paper plates. Also, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is used in the production of paints & paint additives, teflon, floor polish, cleaning agents, foam extinguishing agents, termite & pesticides control agents, ski wax, thread sealant tapes & pastes, and others.
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is highly persistent in the environment and resistant to normal environmental degradation processes. It is a known fact that perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is present at very low levels in everyone’s blood. Similarly, it can be found at low levels in drinking water, food, and household dust; although levels of PFOA in drinking water are usually low.
The major driver to the United States PFOA market is superior waterproofing properties. The other growth drivers include strength of private label brands, increased use of shifting commodity prices, and rising competition from players in perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) industries.
