Polyaryletherketone (PAEK) is a member of the polyether ketone family of high-performance thermoplastics. Polyaryletherketone (PAEK) is obtained from injection molding, extrusion, and compression molding techniques. PAEK occurs in different types named polyether ether ketone (PEEK), polyether ketone (PEK), and polyether ketone ketone (PEKK). In addition, it is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic that possesses high temperature and mechanical strength owing to which it is widely utilized in the automotive, aerospace, medical, and among others. 

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had significantly impacted the growth of the polyaryletherketone (PAEK) market. The shutdown of various manufacturing units and o imposition of strict lockdown has hampered the growth of the PAEK market. In addition, the decrease in the sales of the automotive and aerospace industry during the pandemic has disturbed market revenue. This situation has temporarily hampered the demand and supply chain of the PAEK market. In addition, concern about economic development from several countries, evolving, and recovering market during 2022 is expected to drive the market post COVID-19.
