These market statistics are presented in a report by Value Market Research (VMR).The report identifies that the rising trend of replacing a heavy metal component in automobile products with plastic material is the prime driving factor of the market. POM is also experiencing surged demand from healthcare industry where it is used in joint reconstruction, spine, traumatology among others. Also, this product is being used in the production of pacemakers, artificial heart valves, etc. The growth in the end-user industries such as automotive, electronics, and commercial goods is expected to drive the market growth. Also, growing demand for packaging and consumer electronic appliances is further anticipated to add immense growth to the market.
Polyoxymethylene (POM) is also known as acetal, polyformaldehyde, and polyacetal. POM is a high-performance engineering plastic and is being used across various industries to manufacture precision parts that require high stiffness. It has excellent properties such as high stiffness and outstanding resilience, low friction, high heat resistance, low water absorption and good electrical properties. It is a tough solvent and fuel resistant plastic and also offers excellent dimensional stability even when in contact with chemicals, fuels, and high temperatures. POM is an engineering material used in commercial and industrial precision parts owing to its excellent high heat resistance and good electrical properties. Moreover, owing to low weight and high strength, it is also used in industries in place of heavy metal parts.
