Polycaprolactone (PCL) is a fossil-based, biodegradable and semicrystalline polyester used for thermal processing and 3-Dimensional bioprinting. It is commonly available in the form of pellets, nanospheres and microspheres, which are non-toxic in nature and breaks down into organic components upon exposed to heat, moisture and microorganisms. It is produced using ring-opening polymerization and polycondensation of carboxylic acid methods and exhibit high solubility in organic solvents and low melting point. PCL is commonly used as an additive in resins and for manufacturing jewelry and models and prototypes of products, medical devices, automotive components and construction materials. It is also widely utilized for the production of coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers.
Significant growth in the medical industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. PCL is widely used for the manufacturing of medical-grade orthopedic, dental and surgical implants, drug delivery devices, wound dressing tapes, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine systems. Moreover, the widespread adoption of PCL in the formulation of thermoplastic polyurethane is providing a thrust to the market growth. It exhibits superior hydrophobic properties, resistance to oil, chemical and ultraviolet (UV) rays. It is also used as a polymeric plasticizer to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) to increase its elasticity. Additionally, various product innovations and the utilization of PCL in the construction industry as a noise insulation material for walls, roofs, doors and windows are acting as other growth-inducing factors. In line with this, the rising demand for environment-friendly and cost-effective materials for sealing and encapsulating pressure-sensitive microelectronic components is anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
