Polyphenylene Oxide (PPO) Resins Market by End-use Industry (Electronic & Electrical Industry, Automotive & Transportation Industry, Appliances & Consumer Goods Industry,Others (Packaging, Building, etc)), by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Rest of the World) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

Polyphenylene ether (PPE) also known as polyphenylene oxide (PPO) is a thermoplastic, non-crystalline, linear polyether, which is considered one of the most important engineering thermoplastics due to its high heat distortion temperature, superb resistance to chemicals and high strength. Further, PPO resins find wide usage in several end-use industries such as automotive, electrical & electronics, machinery, appliances and consumer goods industries among others, on account of its low moisture absorption rate, heightened resistance to flames, high mechanical property, and superior dimension stability. PPO resins find major usage in technical parts owing to its fair performance/price ratio for electrical and mechanical properties, low moisture intake, and superior dimensional stability among others. However, few of its drawbacks include high sensitivity to fire and other common chemicals such as concentrated mineral acids, hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents, and limited number of producers among others.

Fluctuations in raw material prices impacting the profitability of manufacturers

Fluctuations in crude oil prices results in the increase or decrease in the profitability margin of resins manufacturers. The “futures contract” that is set between the buyer and sellers allows the buyer to buy resins at a set price in the future as well, which sets an uncertainty in the profitability margin of the resins manufacturers due to fluctuations in oil prices. This is a major factor restraining growth of the polyphenylene oxide (PPO) resins market at present. Asahi Kasei Chemicals Corporation, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), Romira GmbH, Entec Polymers, LLC, Evonik Industries AG, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation., RTP Company, Inc., Solvay S.A., Ensinger GmbH, China National Bluestar (Group) Co, Ltd among others are some of the prominent players in global polyphenylene oxide (PPO) resins market.
