Polyolefin Powders Market - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2020 to 2027

Polyolefin Powders Market: Summary

The Global Polyolefin Powders Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 10.1 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 4.0%.

A polyolefin solution is made with a solvent, nonsolvent, small amount of an inorganic compound, and water. This solution is then cooled to create a polyolefin powder. Polyolefin powder offers high bulk density, narrow particle size distribution, and good powder flowability. The polymerized powder needs to be cleaned of residual monomers, catalysts, and solvents using a decanter centrifuge, purge bin, degassing vessel, or deodorizing silo. Polyolefins are the most widely used plastics for film extrusion.

Polyolefin Powders Market: Drivers & Opportunities

Market Driver:

  • Increasing Demand from End-Use Industries

Polyethylene powder is used majorly in the rotational molding owing to available forms of several density types. The rotational modling offers high flexibility, consistent shrinkage, excellent wrap resistance, and cost-effectiveness to manufacture automotive fuel tanks, water, septic, oil, chemicals tanks and plastic containers. Furthermore, it does not require stabilization additives to be thermally stable and can be molded using high temperature, high-speed rotational molding equipment without excessive oxidation. Different grades of polyolefin powders can be utilized as per requirements of end-user industries such as automotive & transportation, paints & coatings, building & construction, and many others. Polyolefine powder's superior properties make it's used in different end-use industries, thus, increasing demand for polyolefine powder from different end-use industries is expected to drive the global market during the forecasted period.

Market Opportunities:

  • Growing Demand For 3D Printing

Polyolefins are the most widely used plastics for film extrusion. Polyolefins that can be extruded as monolayer and multilayer film. the advantages gained with polyolefin films are ease of processing, lightweight, good toughness and tear resistance, flexibility at low temperatures, outstanding chemical resistance and relatively low cost compared with other plastics. The basic properties of polyolefins can be modified with a broad range of chemical modifiers. Further, polyolefin-based films can be coextruded with various other polymers, including ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), nylon, polyester barrier resins and adhesive tielayers, to produce multilayer films with special, high-performance properties. Due to above-mentioned properties, polyolefine powder is widely used as the 3D printing material for various application. Which is likely to create a huge market opportunity polyolefin powder manufacturers.
