The global polycaprolactone market size was valued at $530.7 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $1,279.7 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 11.6% from 2019 to 2026.

Polycaprolactone is biodegradable polyester, which is produced by ring-opening polymerization of e-caprolactone. One of the most common uses of polycaprolactone includes the production of thermoplastic polyurethane. It is used as an additive in the resin to improve its processing characteristics to enhance its end-user applications. Polycaprolactone is biodegradable in nature, and is increasingly adopted in the healthcare industry as a cost-effective product specifically in tissue engineering.

Polycaprolactone Market

The global polycaprolactone market is witnessing significant growth across the globe. This is attributed to the fact that polycaprolactone is a biodegradable polymer, which is used in the production of thermoplastic polyurethane.

Global polycaprolactone market, by form

By form, the pellets segment is the largest one among all in 2018. Pellets are used as a raw material in the production of thermoplastic polyurethane. Therefore, the demand for polycaprolactone pellets is growing with increase in polyurethane production activities. Moreover, polycaprolactone pellets help to get the desired film thickness and solution concentration. In addition, polycaprolactone in the form of pellets is immediately available for use, which is radially not possible with other forms. These factors are expected to propel the growth of the pellets the largest segment during the forecast period.

Global polycaprolactone market, by production method

By the production method, ring-opening polymerization is the most suitable method for the production of polycaprolactone. One of the major reasons behind the high adoption of ring-opening polymerization is no small molecule is eliminated as a waste which resulted in a 100% yield with no byproduct formation. This is further reduced the use of several reactors to be used in the production process of polycaprolactone in ring-opening polymerization. As a result, ring-opening polymerization is becoming the preferred choice of most of the polycaprolactone manufacturers across the globe. This makes the ring-opening polymerization segment the largest, in terms of revenue.

Global polycaprolactone market, by application

By the application, the coating & thermoplastic polyurethane is emerged as the largest segment in 2018. Polycaprolactone is one of the earliest, commercially available biodegradable polymer used in the thermoplastic polyurethane. Therefore, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is the primary area of application for polycaprolactone. It imparts oil, fuel, and solvent resistance properties to TPU along with improved flexibility and toughness. It is gaining significant popularity as a plasticizer, due to its compatibility with several thermoplastic compounds. Hence, the demand for polycaprolactone is directly proportional to the demand for TPU. As TPU is a basic raw material used in the mainstream industries, its demand is registering significant rise across the globe thereby offering healthy growth opportunities to this market.
