Rotomoulding Powder Market By Material Type (Polyethylene, PVC Plastisols, Polycarbonate, Nylon, Polypropylene, Fluoropolymers, Others), By Application (Transportation, Recreation, Industrial, Furniture, Decorative, Tanks, Medical, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Industry Outlook

The roto molding powder market was worth USD 8,268.5 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at an 18.2% CAGR from 2018 to 2026. Rotomolding powder is prepared from ethylene, one of the extracts obtained during the refining of crude oil. It is used in the manufacturing of various plastic products, such as plastic water tanks, plastic septic tanks, automotive components, plastic packaging products, plastic furniture, decorative items, and other products. Rotomoulding powder is widely used in the production of water supply and storage tanks. Rotomolding powder tanks are also used in sewage treatment and irrigation systems.

Surging demand from developed economies such as North America and Europe owing to rapid urbanization, an increase in household earnings, and infrastructural development are expected to boost the growth of the global roto molding powder market. In recent years, the roto molding powder market has grown due to factors such as low cost, an improved life cycle, and an expanding range of applications for roto molding powder. Rotomoulding powder is 15%-20% less expensive than extrusion blow molding and twin-sheet thermoforming, both of which have a direct impact on product cost. Furthermore, because raw materials are readily available and inexpensive, rotomoulded powder products are less expensive than traditional products. Growing demand from end-use industries for low-cost, flexible packaging and plastic products is expected to drive demand for roto molding powder over the forecast period. However, factors such as volatile raw material prices, as well as stringent environmental regulations governing the disposal and recycling of plastic products, are stifling overall market growth.

Companies focus on low-cost manufacturing using advanced technology and the expansion of manufacturing across key consumption regions across the globe. However, environmental concerns for the disposal and recycling of plastic products are expected to hamper the market's growth over the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

Polyethylene is the leading material type due to high demand from the packaging industry.

In 2017, the polyethylene segment led the material type with a share of 70%, owing to the growing demand for polyethylene for the packaging of various food and industrial products, especially in Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific. The growing popularity of polyethylene products is due to their low cost and high durability, making them a preferred choice among various applications. Thus, the segment is projected to witness significant growth of 18.1% over the forecast period.

The PVC-plastisols segment is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. Increasing use of P.V.C. plastisols as a textile ink for screen-printing and as a coating for outdoor applications is anticipated to drive the growth of the segment during the forecast period. Further, low cost, easy availability, excellent insulating properties, and resistance to U.V. light degradation and electricity are among the properties encouraging the use of P.V.C. across various applications.

The Tanks segment dominates the Rotomoulding Powder Market and is expected to do so throughout the forecast period.

In terms of value and volume, the tanks segment accounted for the lion's share of the global roto molding powder market in 2017. Growing demand for water and septic tanks, especially in China, India, and South Africa due to rapid growth in commercial and residential infrastructure, is projected to drive the growth of the segment during the forecast period. The rapid economic recovery of Western European countries is boosting infrastructure development in the region, as well as the global resurgence of construction and building activities, resulting in high demand for roto molding powder.

The Industrial & Transportation segment is projected to exhibit significant market growth during the forecast period. Because light vehicles require far less energy, the automotive industry is constantly developing lightweight and transportation systems. The excellent U.V. resistance and flame retardant capabilities of roto-molding materials make them an ideal material for producing automotive components.

Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market.

North America held the largest market share in the global roto molding powder market in 2017. Growing demand for agricultural and industrial tanks is projected to drive the demand for roto molding powder in the region during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region owing to flourishing end-use industries such as transportation, industrial, medical, etc., which fuel the demand for roto molding powder in the region.

Europe is estimated to hold a significant revenue share in the global roto molding powder market. Strong demand for roto-molding powder packaging products from the food and agriculture industries in the region is expected to drive the demand for roto-molding powder during the forecast period. Further, increasing demand for roto molding products in automobile components and industrial packaging products from the automobile and manufacturing industries is propelling the overall market growth.

The preferred strategy of key players in the roto molding powder market is merger and acquisition.

Because of the presence of a large number of established players worldwide, the roto-molding powder market is a highly competitive market. To get an edge over their competitors, major players are resorting to mergers and acquisitions and joint venture strategies. For instance, in February 2017, BASF SE announced the acquisition of Solvay S.A.'s nylon business in order to complement its engineering plastics portfolio and enhance the company's position as a leading solution provider for the transportation, construction, industrial applications, and consumer industries. Key manufacturers of roto molding powder include BASF SE, Reliance Industries, DowDupont, Phychem Technologies, Matrix Polymers, and Exxon Mobil Corporation, among others.
