    What is Polyoxymethylene?

    Polyoxymethylene is a semi-crystalline engineering thermoplastic that is majorly used to create high-precision parts for different applications which require good dimensional stability and sliding properties. It exhibits various properties which include excellent wear resistance, low coefficient of friction, high degree of crystallinity, excellent dimensional stability, and resistance against chemical and organic solvents, among others. There are different grades of polyoxymethylene which have different properties for different applications. These grades include reinforced grade, toughened grade, UV stabilized grade, nanocomposites, and others. Certain limitations associated with the material include poor resistance against strong acids, bases, and oxidizing agents, easy burning without a suitable stabilizer system, high mold shrinkage, and poor resistance to UV radiation.

    Demand for polyoxymethylene is rising from the pharma and medical sectors as well as from the industrial sector. Due to the emergence of the pandemic, the demand for the product from the medical sector has increased as a result of increased healthcare spending by various nations, which ultimately boosted the market for polyoxymethylene.

    The increasing use of polyoxymethylene in the electrical and electronics, and automotive industries is the major factor driving the growth of the market. Polyoxymethylene is increasingly used in the electrical and electronics sector owing to its exceptional durability and thermal insulation capabilities whereas it is used in manufacturing various automotive parts as it reduces the overall weight of the vehicle for reduction of vehicular emissions. Furthermore, increasing R&D expenditure in the electrical and automobile industries would also support the growth of the market over the forecast period.
