PR Newswire

SELBYVILLE, Del., Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Global Polyoxymethylene market is fragmented into two prominent types namely copolymer POM and homopolymer POM. Copolymer polyoxymethylene has high flexural strength coupled with excellent fatigue resistance and lubricity. Its good electrical properties along with high mechanical strength makes it suitable for electrical applications requiring long-term stability. Copolymers are used in manufacturing bushings, clips, lugs, valves, faucets, etc. It is also used in milk pumps, filter housings, coffee spigots and food conveyors.

Homopolymer polyoxymethylene commanded the largest revenue share of the overall polyoxymethylene industry in the year 2016 and is anticipated to retain its dominant place in the forthcoming years. Commonly known as Delrin, this polyoxymethylene material is being chiefly deployed in manufacturing automotive parts owing to its superior room temperature tolerance and high tensile strength.

Speaking of the end-use spectrum of POM industry, it is indeed justified to state that the automotive sector is the most lucrative growth ground for this business, given that plastics have been substituting metals in vehicle bodies. Polyoxymethylene, is this regard, is gaining tremendous traction owing to its phenomenal material properties such as wide end-use temperature range, chemical resistance, outstanding fatigue endurance, and excellent resistance to moisture & solvents. These unmatched functional properties of POM have enabled car manufacturers to produce entirely new designs and shapes for better vehicle aesthetics as well as performance. The product also finds myriad usage in the manufacturing of brackets, switches, seatbelt components, and latches in automobiles, on account of which, POM market share from the automotive sector is expected to be considerably high.

The primary driving forces of POM industry are the swiftly progressing automotive sector and the growing involvement of firms in product innovation. Hence, it is quite obvious that the rapid pace of product penetration in myriad regions will further unlock lucrative growth opportunities for the stakeholders of this business space, eventually propelling the polyoxymethylene industry size over the forecast period. Apparently, it is undeniable that the overall POM market, which is projected to surpass a total valuation of USD 9 billion by 2024, is on its way to establishing itself as one of the most promising niche verticals of polymers and advanced materials industry.
