Polyoxymethylene (POM) is a high performance engineering plastic which is used in many end-user applications due its various desirable properties, which also make POM an effective metal replacing plastic. Major consumption of the products in the polyoxymethylene market is recorded in electrical & electronics industry, where it is used to make capacitors, insulators, and various other electronic components. The POM application in the transportation industry is expected to witness growth at a healthy pace. Non-crude oil derivate based raw materials and new applications in the food packaging sector would serve as the opportunities for the material.

The polyoxymethylene market is driven by replacing metals in various applications where extreme strength or impact resistance is not required and the use of POM matches the application's requirements. R&D efforts by major players in the market could improve the growth by developing newer applications and new products to fulfill the demand from various end use markets. The increasing demand in different developing regions promises the growth of polyoxymethylene in the long-term.
