DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Polyoxymethylene (POM) Market - Segmented by Type, End-User Industry and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2015 - 2020)" report to their offering.
Polyacetal or polyoxymethylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastics produced by homo or co-polymerisation of formaldehyde. It was first discovered in 1920 and is available in two types - homo-polymer and co-polymer. These acetals are engineered plastics and with excellent properties such as high stiffness and outstanding resilience. It is a tough, solvent and fuel resistant plastics also offers excellent dimensional stability even in contact with chemicals, fuels and high temperatures. It is used mainly in precision parts which require low friction, high stiffness and exceptional dimensional stability.
Due to its excellent properties, it is used in numerous applications such as bearing, gears, window guides, aerosol valves, speaker grills, fasteners, lighters and furniture components among others. The major end-user industries which use polyoxymethylene includes electronics & electrical, transportation, construction, medical, food & packaging and consumer goods & appliances among others.
The rising demand in various end-user industries such as transportation industry and electronics & electrical industry are the key drivers for the market. Moreover, its application in food & packaging industry and increasing demand from China and U.S. will create a good opportunity for polyoxymethylene market across the globe.
The profiles of numerous polyoxymethylene manufacturing companies have been discussed in the study. These includes BASF, DuPont, Asahi Kasei Chemical Corporation, Kolon Plastics, Korea Engineering Plastics, Mitshubishi Engineering Plastics, RTP Company, Polyone Corporation, Albis Plastics, SABIC Innovative Plastics, Celanese Corporation, Polyplastics Corporation Limited, Techmer ES, Westlake Plastics and China National Bluestar (Group) Corporation Limited among others.
