New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/31/2014 --Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) market is expected to grow over the forecast period due its application as a high performance thermoplastic (HPTPs). Global demand is expected to exceed 150 kilo tons by 2020 growing at a double digit CAGR from 2014 to 2020. HPTPs are high price and low volume polymers making them suitable for a variety of niche applications which requires superior properties. PPS is mostly compounded with glass and carbon fiber in order to improve its mechanical properties. PPS demand is mainly driven by its end use industries in emerging economies of Asia Pacific (India and China) and Latin America (Argentina and Brazil).

A major restraint is the high price which can hamper growth of market over the forecast period. PPS market suffered a decline in demand during recession due to decrease in demand for automotive and other electrical and electronic appliances.
