The market size of plastomers is estimated to reach USD 5.33 Billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 7.4% between 2015 and 2020. The plastomer market is driven by its unique blend of properties of both, elastomers and plastics. Plastomers have narrow molecular weight distribution that differentiates them from regular plastics or elastomers for which they offer excellent sealing properties and are tough and clear. This is the prime factor responsible for the high demand for plastomers.

These are used in various applications such as film-food packaging, film-non-food packaging, film-stretch and shrink film, automotive, polymer modification, wires & cables, medical, and other applications. In 2014, the packaging application accounted for the largest market share among all the applications, in terms of value, followed by healthcare, water treatment, and pulp & paper applications, and film-food packaging application contributing to the maximum share. The plastomer market in the medical application segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020, both, in terms of volume and value.

Film-food packaging is the largest application of plastomers followed by polymer modification and automotive. The plastomers industry has witnessed tremendous growth, especially in the Asia-Pacific region, due to stable economic conditions and high growth in end-use industries such as packaging, automotive, and polymer modification. The drivers of the growth are the increasing demand for plastomers products in emerging markets and high demand from end-use industries

Plastomers Market

The U.S. and Europe are the largest markets of packaged food. Growth in the packaged food industry depends on growth of population. Population in the U.S. was growing at 0.7% in 2013, while major countries in Europe, such as Germany and the U.K., were witnessing a slow population growth. The slow growth in population along with rise in importance of organic food products is affecting the market growth. Films manufactured for food packaging applications account for a major consumption of plastomers. Therefore, decrease in demand from the packaging industry of the U.S. and Europe restricts the growth of the global plastomer market.

The leading players manufacturing plastomers are The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) (Saudi Arabia), Borealis AG (Austria), Mitsui Chemicals (Japan), LG Chem. Ltd. (South Korea), and ExxonMobil (U.S.). These companies have a strong foothold in the global plastomer market and are expected to account for a significant market share in the coming future. Entering into related industries and targeting new markets will enable manufacturers of plastomers to overcome the effects of volatile economy, leading to diversified business portfolio and increase their revenue.
