Olefin block copolymers Market: Introduction
Olefin block copolymers are alternative blocks of the hard and soft segment. The block structure of Olefin block copolymers offers outstanding performance balance of flexibility, high-temperature resistance, excellent elasticity, and good compression set performance at room temperature. Olefin block copolymers are of two types, polyethylene-based OBCs, and polypropylene-based OBCs. The Dow Chemical Company offer Olefin block copolymers under the brand name INFUSE. Olefin block copolymers are manufactured at the company’s manufacturing sites in the US, Spain, Thailand and Saudi Arabia. All these manufacturing facilities are operate on Dow’s proprietary technology known as INTUNE. Olefin block copolymers find application in footwear foams, hot melt adhesives and pressure sensitive adhesives. The global demand for Olefin block copolymers is expected to witness a healthy double digit CAGR over the forecast period.
Olefin block copolymers Market: Market Dynamics
Olefin block copolymers offers numerous advantages over traditional polyolefin elastomer such as improved flexibility, high-temperature resistance, high crystallization temperature, and better elasticity. These benefits make Olefin block copolymers an outstanding alternative to a wide range of polymers including Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA), Styrene Block Copolymers, Thermoplastic Vulcanisates, and others. Key driving factor for Olefin block copolymers is its application in the footwear industry, hot melt adhesive, and pressure-sensitive adhesive. Footwear application contributes the majority of the consumption of Olefin block copolymers followed by adhesive application. Niche application of Olefin block copolymers such as 3D printing is further increasing the demand for Olefin block copolymers in the coming years — for instance, Evolv3D, 3D-printing polyethylene-based build material product offered by The Dow Chemical Company. Manufacturers are increasingly focused on the development of new technologies and commercialization of Olefin block copolymers products which will increase the overall production globally.
