Global Polycaprolactone (PCL) Market Overview
The global polycaprolactone (PCL) market size was worth US$ XX billion in 2020 and is expected to show significant growth by reaching up to US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX% between the forecast period (2021-2028).
Polycaprolactone is a semi-crystalline biodegradable thermoplastic polyester with a melting point of 60°C that is easy to manufacture, blend, and manipulate. The polyester is derived from the chemical synthesis of crude oil and degraded by aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. It's commonly used as a resin additive to enhance processing properties and properties, including durability, flexibility, compression set, and tears strength. The PCL shows characteristics, including long-span biodegradability, 3D techniques, biocompatibility, and regenerative properties. It is non-toxic and can be quickly fabricated chemically, mechanically, and biologically and can also be used with hot-melt glue and laminating pouches. Furthermore, PCL is also used to develop jewelry, models, prototypes, medical devices, automotive components, construction materials, and the packaging industry.
Polycaprolactone (PCL) Dynamics
The global polycaprolactone (PCL) market is driven by the significantly growing demand for PCL in medical and biomedical applications such as drug delivery devices, sutures, injection-molded devices, general-purpose tubing and surgical drapes. The growing demand for PCL in manufacturing polyurethane and thermoplastic polyurethane, owing to its excellent properties, is triggering PCL's market share in recent times.
Growing demand for PCL in medical and biomedical applications such as for the production of drug delivery devices, suture, injection-molded devices, general-purpose tubing and surgical drapes
For the past few years, PCL is in great demand in different medical and biomedical applications globally, such as drug delivery devices, sutures, injection-molded devices, general-purpose tubing, and surgical drapes. Furthermore, polycaprolactone is gaining popularity in dentistry applications such as dental splints and root canal filling, which is expected to boost its growth. Long-term implants and managed drug release applications have also used PCL extensively. On the other hand, PCL has some drawbacks in tissue engineering, such as a slow degradation rate, poor mechanical properties, and low cell adhesion. The addition of calcium phosphate-based ceramics and bioactive glasses to PCL has resulted in a new hybrid biomaterials class with significantly improved mechanical properties, controllable degradation rates, and increased bioactivity, which are ideal for bone tissue engineering. Thus, due to excellent physical, chemical, and mechanical properties, the PCL market is expected to grow in the forecast period while dominating medical and biomedical applications.
The growing demand for PCL in manufacturing polyurethane and thermoplastic polyurethane, owing to its excellent properties, is triggering PCL's market share in recent times.
PCL exhibits excellent oil, fuel, and solvent resistance and good flexibility and toughness properties, making it a popular choice to manufacture polyurethane and thermoplastic polyurethane. Apart from this, polycaprolactone as a raw material in the manufacture of thermoplastic polyurethane is primarily due to its superior hydrophobic properties, UV resistance, resistance to oil and grease, chemical resistance, wear resistance, shine, adhesion, and low-temperature flexibility. One of the prime factors driving the global polycaprolactone market's growth is the increasing usage of thermoplastic polyurethane in various end-use industries such as construction, automotive, and packaging. Also, over the forecast period, increasing the use of polycaprolactone in the electronics industry would drive market growth. The increasing demand for polycaprolactone is driven by the need to seal and encapsulate pressure-sensitive microelectronic components in electronic products that withstand extreme temperatures.
Lack of product knowledge and benefits coupled with a low acceptance rate is expected to obstruct its market growth over the forecast period.
The market's growth is projected to be hampered by a lack of product knowledge and benefits. Because of its low load-bearing ability, most manufacturers avoid using polycaprolactone in medical devices, and its slow rate of degradation is expected to hamper its market growth. As a result, potential customers are turning to lower-cost alternatives, which is slowing down the industry. Polycaprolactone's low acceptance rate is expected to obstruct its market growth over the forecast period, owing to its high production cost and high price. Furthermore, over the forecast period, stringent rules and regulations prohibiting polycaprolactone products in a few industries are expected to hinder market growth.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The global polycaprolactone (PCL) has shown an improvement due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic as chemicals are used to make various products, including biodegradable plastics, packaging, and pharmaceuticals. Consumer demand for biodegradable packaging materials is growing in response to the spread of coronavirus. Because of the growing supply-demand gap caused by the shutdown of manufacturing plants and transportation facilities, market players have been forced to diversify their business strategies. In addition, disruptions in international trade and strict government policies concerning environmentally friendly goods have significantly impacted the global polycaprolactone market's development. With the launch of new low-cost creative products in the coming years, domestic players will have a major opportunity to gain significant market share following COVID-19.
