Polycaprolactone Market by Form (Pellet, Microsphere, and Nanosphere), Manufacturing Method (Ring Opening Polymerization and Polycondesation of Carboxylic Acid), and Application (Coating & Thermoplastic Polyurethane, Healthcare, and Others): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019–2026
The global polycaprolactone market was valued at $530.7 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $1,279.7 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 11.6% from 2019 to 2026.
Polycaprolactone is one of the first hydrophobic biodegradable polymers, which is crystalline in nature. It is highly biocompatible, exhibits enhanced toughness, and is cost-effective as compared to other bio-based polymers. Polycaprolactone degrades slower than other biodegradable polyester in physiological conditions, and thus finds its major application in the healthcare industry.
The global polycaprolactone market is in its nascent phase, and is anticipated to register significant growth during the forecast period. Thermoplastic polyurethane is the primary application area of polycaprolactone. Therefore, increase in polyurethane production globally in response to its diverse application scope is majorly contributing toward the growth of the market. Polyurethane is a polymer used as a raw material in mainstream end-use industries such as automotive, building and construction, packaging, and consumer goods. Thus, development of these industries is not only driving the demand for polyurethane but also for polycaprolactone. Furthermore, lower degradation of polycaprolactone has led to its use in the healthcare sector for wound care management, suture, drug delivery, tissue engineering, wound dressing tape, and orthopedics. Apart from these uses, polycaprolactone is developing other applications in the healthcare industry due to its biocompatibility, thereby boosting its demand across the globe. However, surge in demand for polyols family chemicals such as polycaprolactone polyol is expected to hamper the global market growth.
The global polycaprolactone market is segmented into form, production method, application, and region. On the basis of form, the market is divided into pellets, nano sphere, and microsphere. By production method, it is bifurcated into ring opening polymerization and polycondesation of carboxylic acid. Depending on application, it is classified into coating & thermoplastic polyurethane, healthcare, and others. Region wise, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
