Global Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene Coating Market – Analysis and Forecast to 2019

“Global Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene Coating Market by Application (Food Processing, Building & Construction, Electrical & Electronics, Chemical Processing, and Others), and by Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World) – Analysis and Forecast to 2019”

FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) is a compound of hexa fluoropropylene and tetra fluoro ethylene. It is a non-stick coating which provides smooth non-porous films. FEP is chemically inactive and has very low dielectric constant over a wide frequency range. FEP possesses high degree of stress crack resistance and very low coefficient of friction. FEP along with long term weather ability and excellent resistance to ozone, sunlight and weather has high transparency (with good transmittance of Ultraviolet and visible wavelengths.) which offers the lowest refractive index of all thermoplastics with low light reflection (the same as water.)

http://www.aarkstore.com/chemical-materials/120511/global-fluorinated-ethylene-propylene-coating-market-by-application-and-by-geography-analysis-and-forecast

Global FEP market is driven by the increasing demand from wire and cable industry, multiple applications of FEP coating, and excellent resistance to corrosive and chemical environments along with improved resistance to scratch compared to Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coating. Also, the excessive use of FEP coating in its application such as food processing, chemical processing, cable and wire, and many more are the major reasons to drive the market from 2014 to 2019.

In June 2014, DuPont Fluoropolymer Solutions (DuPont, U.S.) extended its plant and improved its growth to increase up to 1,000 tons at its site near Parkersburg, West Virginia site. This growth will help increase production of high-performance FEP resins, meeting the growing demand. A number of FEP resins would be produced, including FEP 9494 and FEP 9835. These FEP offerings are supplied to its end-user such as IT Datacom category cables and data center cables.

Russia’s Oil and Gas Tax Policies Increasingly Looking Eastward

Russia Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Report

The recent changes in the taxation of Russia’s oil and gas sector reflect both the country’s pivot eastward and the special treatment afforded to its state-controlled energy companies. The so-called ‘tax manoeuvre’ shifts the tax burden from export duty on oil and petroleum products to Mineral Extraction Tax (MET) on oil production. It will gradually reduce Russia’s marginal rate of export duty to 30% in 2017, while increasing the base rate of MET to RUB919/tonne. The primary motive for this is to harmonise Russian export duty with that existing in other Eurasian Economic Union countries, particularly Kazakhstan and Belarus, in preparation for the development of a common energy market between 2018 and 2025. While the simultaneous MET hike and duty reduction means that the change is relatively neutral for oil exporters, profit margins in the refining sector are likely to be hit.

Russia Upstream Fiscal and Regulatory Report provides an overview of the regimes governing upstream oil and gas operations

The report includes:

  • An overview of the fiscal and regulatory regime governing upstream oil and gas operations in Russia
  • Details on legal frameworks and governing bodies administering the industry
  • Levels of upfront payments and taxation applicable to oil and gas production
  • An explanation of the latest Mineral Extraction Tax (MET) and export duty provisions, along with their evolution over time
  • Detailed information on the terms of production sharing agreements for Sakhalin and Kharyaga
  • An assessment of the current fiscal regime’s attractiveness to investors against regional peers
