Polyoxymethylene is an engineering thermoplastic that is derived from formaldehyde. The properties of these products include high dimensional stability, good strength, and high fatigue and impact resistance. These properties make POM a highly preferred material in light weight metal replacing applications in various end-user segments of the polyoxymethylene market. For its capability of replacing metal in light weight applications, POM has penetrated various segments such as transportation and industrial.

In the past five years, the demand for polyoxymethylene has grown at a rapid pace due to its present applications and scope of development of applications in different sectors. The presence of new developing economies has ensured growth in demand for polyoxymethylene in the next five years. China shared about 31.5% of the global POM demand in 2012. The Asia-Pacific region is the leader in consumption and revenue generation, followed by Western Europe, in the POM market.

This study aims at estimating the market of polyoxymethylene for 2013 and to project the expected demand of the same by 2018. This market research study provides detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the polyoxymethylene market.
