Market Overview


Global Polycaprolactone Market was valued at USD 370.42 billion 2018 and is projected to register a CAGR of over 10.00% during the review period. Polycaprolactone is a biodegradable, semi-crystalline thermoplastic polyester, which has a melting point of about 60°C. It is easy to manufacture, manipulate, and blend and is generally used as an additive for resins to improve their processing properties as well as characteristics such as toughness, flexibility, compression set, and tear strength.


The growth of the global polycaprolactone market is driven by the extensive use of polycaprolactone in the manufacturing of polyurethane and thermoplastic polyurethane. This is because it exhibits good oil, fuel, and solvent resistance as well as excellent flexibility and toughness. The growing use of thermoplastic polyurethane in major end-use industries such as automotive, construction, and packaging is one of the major factors influencing the growth of the global polycaprolactone market. The growth of the global market is also driven by the growing use of polycaprolactone in the healthcare sector for applications such as drug delivery, wound care management, sutures, wound dressing tape, tissue engineering, orthopedic, and dental implants. The biodegradable nature of the product, its non-toxicity, and biocompatibility are factors increasing their use in the sector. Furthermore, it is added as a polymeric plasticizer to polyvinyl chloride to increase its flexibility. It also can be used in re-moldable plastic on account of its low softening point. 


The extensive research and development on polycaprolactone blend to reduce the cost and improve biodegradability by mixing starch and other low-cost organic fillers is expected to create lucrative opportunities for manufacturers operating in the global market.


The manufacturers are focusing on strategic growth initiatives such as joint ventures, product development, and mergers & acquisitions. For instance, in May 2018, Perstorp AB, a global leading specialty chemicals company announced to form a joint venture named ElogioAM with 3D4Makers, a high-performance 3D printing filament producer, to develop new material solutions for the additive manufacturing industry. ElogioAM will offer the world’s first fifth-generation 3D filament, Facilan, which enables applications previously unobtainable in the medical, fashion, orthotics, and advanced prototyping. The Facilan portfolio also consists of Facilan PCL 100, which is a pure polycaprolactone filament that is being used by researchers in artificial muscles, drug-loaded implants, scaffolds, and smart materials.


However, the high cost of polycaprolactone and availability of low-cost substitutes are factors expected to hamper the global market growth during the forecast period.

Regional Analysis


The global polycaprolactone market has been segmented into five regions, namely Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.


Asia-Pacific accounted for a major market share in 2018, on account of the high use of thermoplastic polyurethane in major end-use industries such as automotive, construction, and packaging. The growth of the construction sector in the region is attributed to rapid urbanization and industrialization. Furthermore, the rising disposable income has increased the sale of automobiles in the region, which is expected to propel the demand for thermoplastic polyurethane, which and consequently boost the demand for polycaprolactone. The European and North American markets are expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period on account of the high demand for surgical equipment and biodegradable products. Increasing use of the product in modeling and splinting of prototyping systems and as feedstock is expected to boost the product demand in the coming years. Moreover, the use of polyurethane and thermoplastic polyurethane in the automotive and construction industries is projected to fuel the demand for the product in these regions.
