Market Overview


Polyolefin powders, also called fluff or flake, offer high bulk density, narrow particle size distribution, and good powder flowability. A polyolefin solution is made with a solvent, nonsolvent, small amount of an inorganic compound, and water; this solution is then cooled to create a polyolefin powder. The polymerized powder needs to be cleaned of residual monomers, catalysts, and solvents using a decanter centrifuge, purge bin, degassing vessel, or deodorizing silo. After cleansing, the dry powder is pneumatically transferred to containers where it is stored in nitrogen to prevent oxidation.


The global polyolefin powders market is primarily driven by the increasing use of these powders in major industries such as electronics, food packaging, construction, automotive, textiles, and healthcare. The different types of polyolefin powders are polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), and ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). The growth of the end-use industries in emerging nations in Asia-Pacific is one of the major factors driving market growth. Growth-centric countries in the region such as China, India, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia are expected to offer lucrative opportunities to market players during the forecast period.


However, the volatility of raw material prices is likely to hamper market growth during the review period.


Market players are focusing on strategic developments such as acquisitions and product launches. For instance, in June 2018, LyondellBasell Industries Holdings BV received an antitrust clearance from the European Commission to acquire A. Schulman Inc. for USD 2.25 billion to strengthen its compounding business.
