Plastomer Market, By Product

Based on product, ethylene propylene market is anticipated to witness gains close to 5% in the forecast time period. Ethylene propylene possess combination of excellent chemical and physical properties such as heat sealability, processability, softness, clarity, and compatibility in blends for films, sheets and molded products. The aforementioned characteristics along with growing packaging, automotive and construction industry will make notable impact on the overall plastomer market size in the coming years. For instance, the overall flexible packaging market size in the U.S. was over USD 30 billion in 2018 and likely to exhibit growth over 5% by 2025. Such inclination in the packaging industry shall subsequently fuel the overall plastomer market growth, as more than 60% of the application base is occupied by food & non-food packaging applications.

Plastomer Market, By Application

Plastomer market size for food packaging is likely to grow at a CAGR close to 6.5% in the coming years. They are widely applicable as a sealing polymer in food packaging industry, which is mainly attributed to its low density nature and the fact that there is a difference in its sealing and melting behavior. Additionally, product possess extraordinary properties such as flexibility, strength and excellent chemical resistance to protect food products from contamination and spoilage, which makes it highly desirable across food packaging industry. Changing consumer food habits, lifestyle changes, global travel, and the ongoing trend of healthy foods are offering new opportunities to the food industry. The above-mentioned trends mainly in emerging economies such as Asia Pacific and the Middle East will boost the product demand, which will have a positive influence on the overall plastomer market growth in the projected timeframe.

Asia Pacific led the overall plastomer market share with over 35% of the global volume in 2018. Growth in Asia Pacific is credited to the rapidly growing food & beverage, pharmaceutical and personal care industry, which positively influences the packaging industry. For instance, improved per capita spending, purchasing parity and socio-economic dynamics ultimately propels package food and personal care product demand. These trends suggest a food and non-food packaging industry, which will help attain promising gains for the market size in the near future.

Key players in the segment are developing new and modified packaging materials to attract consumers likely to make a notable impact on the plastomer market growth in the coming years. Moreover, rising aging population and growing middle class population in the region will boost the product demand for medical/healthcare industry and thereby its packaging material such as film, sheet, etc. which in turn will help attain a positive outlook for the plastomer market share in the forecast timeframe.

Competitive Market Share

Plastomer market share is competitive due to presence of few large-scale and small scale manufacturers. Prominent market share contributors are Dow Chemical Company, Borealis, ExxonMobil, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), LyondellBasell and Westlake Chemical Corporation. Most of these companies are making substantial investment to expand its production capacity to meet the consistently rising product demand and gain edge over its competitors. For instance, Borealis announced to ramp up the polyolefin capacity in 2016, in combination with Borouge to 8 million tons.

Industry Background

Plastomer is a polymer material which has the qualities of both the elastomers and plastics. They are a broad category of olefins which are mainly composed of ethylene propylene, ethylene butene, ethylene hexene, ethylene octene. They have wide ranging application in the form of compounding foams, food packaging, non-food packaging, adhesives, wire & cables, automotive, etc. Improving socio-economic dynamics in Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East will trigger the product demand from food packaging industry, which will have a positive outlook for the plastomer industry by 2025. Additionally, increase in the public expenditure on healthcare/medical industry which will help attain positive gains to the overall market in the near future.
