Polyoxymethylene (POM), or polyacetal, is a semi-crystalline engineering thermoplastic used for manufacturing components with enhanced precision, stability and sliding properties. It is widely used as a metal substitute and produced through the process of ring-opening polymerization of formaldehyde and is supplied in the form of pellets. POM is commonly available in homopolymer and copolymer variants that are utilized to manufacture mechanical gears, fasteners, bearings and medical devices, including dialysis machines, inhalers and pharmaceutical closures. POM exhibits various advantageous properties, such as wide operating temperature range, minimal friction, high dimensional stability and heat, chemical and wear resistance. As a result, it finds extensive applications across various industries, including electronic, automotive and electrical.
The increasing demand for medical-grade POM for the manufacturing of healthcare devices is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. POM is also widely used for the production of pen caps, outer needle caps, inner needle caps and dosage knobs of the insulin pens due to low moisture absorption, high sterility and impact resistant properties. It is also utilized for manufacturing pacemakers, artificial valves and joint reconstruction devices. Moreover, the widespread product adoption in the electronics industry is providing a thrust to the market growth. POM is utilized in electric housing, circuit boards, switches, enclosures, wiring components and cooling systems. In line with this, the increasing adoption of POM for the manufacturing of various plumbing components, such as pump impellors, fittings, appliance casings, valve stems and jug kettles, is also contributing to the market growth. Other factors, including the rising demand for effective food packaging solutions, along with the utilization of POM for automotive steering wheels, locks, door handles and headrests, are acting as other growth-inducing factors.
