Polyoxymethylene (POM) Market Overview


Polyoxymethylene (POM) Market is projected to be worth USD 7.6 Billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period (2021 - 2028).


POM belongs to the family of engineering thermoplastic; it is available in two forms homopolymer and copolymer. POM is highly crystalline, offers good creep and wear resistance, and can withstand chemical attack. Though POM accounts for nearly 5.2% of the global engineering plastics demand, it holds huge potential and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of over ~8% during the forecast period. It is widely used across an array of industries including electronics and electrical, automotive, consumer goods, and others.


The prime factor expected to drive the growth of the global POM market is increasing demand in the automotive and electrical and electronics industries. The industries together account for more than half of the POM demand globally. The properties of POM such as good electric insulation, lightweight, good strength, and chemical resistance makes it suitable for use in the electrical and electronics and transportation industries. In electrical and electronics, POM is used in the manufacturing of parts such as fan parts, buttons, relays, micro-gears, camera parts and in domestic appliances such as washing machines, telephones, and dishwashers. Hence, the growth of the electrical and electronics industry is expected to boost the demand for POM during the forecast period.


Besides, owing to its lightweight properties, POM is used in the production of various automotive parts and components such as gear systems, locks, antenna, door mirrors, fuel covers, and others. The use of POM in automobiles helps to reduce the weight of the vehicle, which results in better performance, low emissions, and increased fuel efficiency. Moreover, with the increasing environmental regulations on vehicular emissions and increasing consumption of engineering plastics in the automotive industry is expected to fuel the demand for POM.


The supply-side driver of the global POM market growth is regulatory approvals for the use of POM in various end-use industries apart from electrical and automotive. For instance, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved POM as safe for use in the food & beverage industry. Similarly, the International Association of Plumbing Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and Building Officials Conference of America (BOCA) have approved the use of POM for plumbing fixtures and piping and mechanical applications, which is expected to increase the adoption of POM in the upcoming years.


Investments in the capacity expansion is a noted trend among the players in the global market. For instance, Celanese Corporation announced its debottlenecking activity to increase its POM production capacity. Once operational Celanese will be the world’s largest POM producer followed by BASF and KOLON joint venture.


However, the availability of traditional materials and other engineering thermoplastics and poor resistance of POM towards alkali and acid attacks are expected to hamper the demand during the forecast period.
