    Market Insights

    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, resistance against chemical and organic solvent, 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 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 emergence of the pandemic, the demand for the product from the medical sector has been increased as a result of increased healthcare spending by various nations, which ultimately boosted the market for polyoxymethylene.

    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. Overall, the polyoxymethylene market is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period.

    Segment Analysis

    Based on the type, the market is bifurcated into homopolymer POM and copolymer POM. Copolymer POM is likely to remain the more utilized type of polyoxymethylene in the foreseen future owing to its high processibility. It is preferred for various applications which demand a low coefficient of friction.

    Based on the grade type, the market is segmented as standard, reinforced, impact modified, recycled, UV stabilized, special grade, and others. Standard grade is expected to remain the most preferred grade type of the polyoxymethylene market during the forecast period. It is mostly utilized in the production of medical devices, surgical tool handles, automobiles, and other different components. The standard grade polyoxymethylene market is likely to grow in the future with a favorable outlook for the use of plastics in the medical sector.

    Based on the end-user industry type, the market is segmented as electrical and electronics, transportation, medical, food packaging, consumer goods and appliances, construction, and others. Among these application types, the electrical and electronics industry is likely to remain the biggest demand generator for polyoxymethylene during the forecast period. Polyoxymethylene is increasingly used in the electrical and electronics industry,  owing to its various properties, such as good electrical and thermal insulation, easy-to-modify nature, lightweight, and shatter resistance. Electric housing, circuit boards, switches and wiring components, enclosures, sockets and connectors, cooling systems, etc. are some of the important applications of polyoxymethylene in the electronics industry.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for polyoxymethylene over the forecast period on account of the high consumption of polyoxymethylene in the region, especially in China as the country has the presence of various electrical and electronics, and automobile industries.
