Global Polyolefin Elastomer Overview


The Polyolefin Elastomer(s) or POE are simply elastomers having a backbone of polyethylene. The POE offers a low density and higher flexibility. These are commonly used to modify the PE and PP based compounds or makes PE and PP products more flexible than usual. These could be used in compounding, extrusion, film, and injection molding. 

In fronts such as metallocene polymerization catalysts, metallocene polymerization catalysts represent one of the high paced growing synthetic polymers. POE’s could be substituted for numerous generic polymers including ethylene vinyl acetate, ethylene-propylene rubbers (EPR or EPDM), styrene block copolymers (SBCs), and PVC (Poly Vinyl Chlorides) for sure. Polyolefin Elastomers complements most of the olefinic materials, and act as a perfect impact modifier for plastics. And offer state of the art performance-driven properties for compounded products, materials, etc.

Growth Drivers


Increase in disposable income among the urban population

As the population is growing rapidly in both rural and urban settings have brought up many adaptions taking place. Such is the growing disposable income among the people and the increase in consumer preference for packaged products. The retail industry especially in the Asia Pacific and Latin America is expected to drive the growth for the relevant market. Due to the increased demand for easy, quick, and fresh products that are often packed, produced, and manufactured with the help of Polyolefin Elastomers. 


Increase in demand for flexible, food & beverages packaging with sustainable insulative technology for current and energy transformation

Among various factors and drivers, there’s one component that makes the market to grow. It is the growing demand for flexible & sustainable food that has helped the market to gain substantial growth. Additionally, the increased innovation and adoption of the new technologies has led to an escalation of the overall product yields throughout the Global market. POE blends are manufactured by melt mixing recyclable high voltage D.C. (direct current) cable used for insulation related applications. The enhanced flexibility, high breakdown, high volume, and well revised thermal characteristics directly increase the potential HVDC apple and its application with PP/POE blends and mixtures.




The irresponsible disposable of plastics

In recent times, worldwide populations have concentrated more on the environment and related issues. People nowadays are more aware of the fact that more plastics are being manufactured. The landfills are getting overflowed and people are growing more concerned about such issues. In a study taken in the year 2015, according to the United Nations Environment Program, around 322 million tons of plastic wastes was produced. Additionally, 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic was manufactured. All of this could hinder the polyolefin elastomer market on the global level. 


Impact of COVID 19 on Industry


The rise and spread of COVID-19 have led to decreasing rates of utilization rates of refineries across the globe, resulting in supply shortages for various end-use sectors. The health crisis has hit on a different note leading to a sudden spike in demand for olefins which find usage in the formulation of sanitizers and other cleaning products. Additionally, the global industries are more focused on providing the world population with necessities, vaccines, and related medication. The markets such as Polyolefin Elastomers could face impact either positive or negative. Based on the requirements of global industries, it is yet to determine. But the report will account for Covid19 as a contributor, which will be well analyzed. 


Global Polyolefin Elastomers (POE)Market: By Type


Based on type, the Polyolefin Elastomers are divided into Injection Grade, General Grade, Extrusion Grade. These are based on the techniques used for the formation of the specific polyolefin elastomer. For the case of injection molding, one requires polymers which usually are characterized by high fluidity at the temperature of processing that will allow filling well your mold at the pressure of injection and finally to obtain in one step very complicated or complex injection molded items, products, etc. In the case of Grade POE, the grades are designed for processing by extrusion are generally characterized by higher molecular weights and high/higher viscosity in the molten form. The type varies from product to product, hence followed by the ease of production, availability of raw materials, etc.


Global Polyolefin Elastomers (POE)Market: By Application 


Based on application, the POE market is divided into Adhesives, Automotive, Consumer Goods, Films and Packaging, Molded Rubber Goods, Wire, and Cable. The rise in the applications of polyolefin credits majorly to automotive, adhesives, masterbatches, etc. The swell in the growth of the relevant market is fueled by the footwear market. Additionally, the rising market for athletic footwear, sandals, etc. which requires light and long-lasting materials to be manufactured from, has increased. As the POE provides resilience, softness, is lightweight, and has a good amount of flexibility.  


Global Polyolefin Elastomers (POE)Market: Regional Insights


The Asia Pacific is anticipated to gain the fastest growth, in the market for global polyolefin elastomers over the projected period. The growth would be due to the increasing demand for automobiles, which has a huge marketplace in countries such as China, Taiwan, Japan, etc. In a recorded study by the International Trade Administration, China held the highest position between the year 2012 to 2014 for producing 17.8 million vehicles. However, on the same account, China is yet again about to get an important growth in the market, by the year 2020.
