European Polyoxymethylene Market size is expected to reach USD 1.43 billion by 2028, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
The market growth is impelled by higher application scope in the consumer goods and automotive sector. The increasing rate of motor vehicle production will positively influence the industry growth. The use of plastic materials is witnessing an upward trajectory across the automotive industry in the latest years, further driving the expansion of the regional automotive sector. The rising focus on limiting the use of metals and the stringency of European Union (EU) proposed regulations for controlling emissions are also playing a key role in the market expansion.
Polyoxymethylene not only acts as a better substitute for metals but also records prolific usage in fuel systems, interior and exterior trims, steering columns, seat belt mechanical components, and window support brackets. These engineering thermoplastics have also emerged popular to offer good rigidity, high stiffness, and excellent yield whilst lowering the vehicle weights for reduced emissions and enhanced fuel economy.
Rising spending propensity as well as consumer interests, and the fast-growing global population, are some factors that are likely to push the demand for consumer goods in the upcoming years. The presence of stringent environmental regulations and the rising production issues.
The copolymer (C-POM) segment will strike a 2% CAGR through 2028, driven by increasing requirement in medical technology, and fuel tank modules & lock systems that need strength, low moisture absorption, chemical resistance, and dimensional stability. It offers excellent thermal stability and longer creep-fracture life and is therefore employed in high-performance engineering components. Rising usage in industrial, consumer electronics and automotive applications will further bolster the industry growth.
The impact modified and UV stabilized grades segment will reach a significant value till 2028, owing to the rising need in automotive interior applications. While impact-modified grades are used for molding parts that require high impact, precision, and low friction, the UV stabilized grades provide added resistance to UV degradation in outdoor use. They offer improved impact strength while retaining the stiffness and tensile strength of the standard POM. This new UV stabilized; impact-modified blend technology also leads to lower mold deposits in comparison to standard impact-modified grades.
