DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/t23gmn/polyoxymethylene) has announced the addition of the "Global Polyoxymethylene Applications Market Report 2014-2018 Featuring Celanese Corp, DuPont, Korea Engineering Plastics, Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics Corp & Polyplastics Co" report to their offering.
Polyoxymethylene (POM) is an engineering plastic which finds its applications in many end-user industries. Properties such as excellent dimensional stability, high strength, and good resistance to impact & fatigue make polyoxymethylene a preferred material in the category of high performance engineering plastics. Polyoxymethylene is generally used because of its excellent physical properties which make it a light weight metal replacing material. Due to this, the demand for polyoxymethylene is high in the market and is expected to grow in the future.
POM market is experiencing high growth rate, but, the maximum demand is observed in the Asia-Pacific region. A huge amount of investment is made in POM market to meet the growing demand globally. Currently, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest consumers of POM which accounts for 55.3% of the consumption.
Currently, the major use of POM is observed in applications relating to electrical & electronics industry and transportation industry. The key drivers of the industry are, rising demand from the transportation industry and scope of innovation in copolymer POM. Competition from other engineering plastics is a major restraining factor that exists in this market.
