Semi-crystalline Polymers Market: Overview
Thermoplastic polymers are considered in two major forms in market, amorphous and semi-crystalline. Of the thermoplastic types used in the market, semi-crystalline polymers such as HDPE, polypropylene and bundle of other semi-crystalline products have conquered the demand share. Thus placing the semi-crystalline polymers market on top of the thermoplastic polymers market charts. Moreover, semi-crystalline polymers in differentiation with amorphous provides clear distinction over structural properties such as highly organized and tight packed molecular chains of the polymer. Thus providing a leverage over manufacturing products which could sustain high melting points.
Semi-crystalline polymers are used to manufacture bundle of products ranging from packaging, aerospace & defence components, automotive parts, medical devices components etc. Diverse applications of semi-crystalline polymers enhances the stance of the market in long-run forecast period and reduces the risk of price fluctuation. Despite market diversification, semi-crystalline polymers demand has declined over the period of 2nd and 3rd quarter owing to the contraction of demand from automotive industry and others. Macro-economic factors play a major role in assessing the semi-crystalline polymers market such as crude oil price and automotive industry growth.
All in all market is set to grow at a single higher digit CAGR over the long term forecast period.
Demand Spike from Medical Components is set to Provide Long-Run Thrust to the Market
COVID-19 has contracted majority of the markets but in the perspective of the medical components growth, semi-crystalline polymers market has portrayed a positive growth over the first two quarter of the FY2020. Demand growth could largely be attributed to the spike in manufacturing of ventilators and other medical equipment over the 1st and 2nd quarters in FY2020. While on the other hand dip in market stance could be observed over the same period owing to the declining demand from automotive and aerospace industry. Price of the product has decreased by near 2% over the same period owing to the massive market decline.
Market has portrayed a picture of rapid growth in the past half-decade which provides a promising stance to the stakeholders in the semi-crystalline polymers market in long-run forecast period.
COVID-19 to have Minimal Effect for the Semi-crystalline Polymers Market
COVID-19 or Novel corona virus has ceased the trade of majority of the products across the globe. Scenario is changing periodically owing to the opening of the trade channels at a rapid pace. Europe, East Asia, North America markets has lifted lockdowns and market pace has seen an uptake of 2% since the beginning of 3rd quarter. Market is set to reach nominal pace over the mid-term forecast period. Restarting of the Automotive and aerospace operations has portrayed a positive picture of the market. Despite price decline over the 2nd quarter, promising rise of prices of the polymer products is set to be observed by the end of the FY2020.
