The Global Polyolefin Plastomer (Pop) Market Has Reached Approximately 700 Thousand Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 4.13% During the Forecast Period Until 2035

The global Polyolefin Plastomer (POP) market has reached approximately 700 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.13% during the forecast period until 2035. The owners of Sabic SK Nexlene Co. (SNNC) recently announced to increase the capacity of polyolefin elastomers and plastomers which will begin to operate in the 2nd quarter of 2024.

Polyolefin Plastomer (POP) is a copolymer of ethylene and octene, synthesized in presence of a metallocene catalyst. This plastomer is stretchy, imperforate-resistant, possess low seal initiation temperature (SIT), high coefficient of friction, non-slip, and is highly stable at low temperatures. POP can be employed alone to create molded or extruded parts or mixed with other plastics such as to improve flexibility of polypropylene or polyethylene-based composites and create flexible packaging. Other applications include automobile accessories, foams, footwear, consumer goods, wire, cable, and packing purposes.

The primary driver of Polyolefin Plastomer (POP) global market is food packaging, which is anticipated to rise in response to rising demand due to growing population and dependence of the population on read-to eat meals and snacks in the forecast period. In 2021, approximately 50% of global Polyolefin Plastomer (POP) was utilized by the Food Packaging Industry. Customer traction is further increased by the growing general need for polyolefin elastomers. POP is widely used for closures, sealing, bottle wads, wrappers, multipurpose pockets, and customized pouches for packing meat and beverages. The demand for packaged food is expected to rise during the forecast period as a result of growth in population. Significant advancements in the food and beverage sector are predicted to enhance the global market for Polyolefin Plastomers. Furthermore, POP can be added to other plastics to improve their flexibility. The global POP market is expected to become a USD 6 billion market by 2035.

Based on demand, the Asia Pacific is dominating the Polyolefin Plastomer (POP) market with a demand of approximately 34% of the global Polyolefin Plastomer (POP). It is expected that Asia Pacific will experience a surge in POP demand as an effect of industrial growth and constructional activities. North America and Europe are also prominent consumers of POP. The automotive, civil industries, building & construction, are the key industries in these regions. During the projected period, these industries are anticipated to rise steadily in North America and Europe. Based on production, approximately 30% of the global POP took place in Spain, with Dow Chemical Company as the leading producer.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Polyolefin Plastomer (POP) market is segmented into different industrial sectors that include Food Packaging, Industrial Packaging, Hot Melt Adhesives (HMA), and others.
