Cyclic Olefin Copolymer Market, By Product Type (COC and COP), By Grade (Films and Resins), By Appli

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1942869


The Cyclic Olefin Copolymer Market is expected to promise high growth owing to the increasing growth of various sectors such as packaging, healthcare, electronics, and optics in recent years. Increasing demand from applications including packaging, healthcare, optics, electronics, and others is expected to drive the growth of the market.

When the chain copolymerization of cyclic monomers occurs with ethene, it forms cyclic olefin copolymers (COCs). COCs have excellent optical properties, which resemble that of glass. They not only can resist high temperatures but also offer excellent transparency with low bi-refractivity.

Segment Insights

The global cyclic olefin copolymer market has been segmented on the basis of product type, grade, and application. On the basis of grade, the market has been segmented into films and resins. Resins are most widely used in the medical packaging industry, as they offer high chemical resistance and optic transparency.

Based on product type, the market has been divided into cyclic olefin copolymer and cyclic olefin polymer. The cyclic olefin polymer comprises a single type of monomer and therefore, is widely used in packaging solutions, such as vials, bottles, syringes, packaging films, lenses, and medical devices. However, cyclic olefin copolymer is made of different types of monomers and hence, is majorly used in electronics and optical industries.

On the basis of application, the market has been segmented into packaging, healthcare, optics, electronics, and others. The demand for cyclic olefin copolymers has grown in the medical, healthcare, and packaging sectors due to its properties such as high purity, moisture barrier, clarity, and sterilization compatibility. There has been an increase in the demand for cyclic olefin copolymers in the optical sector due to their low bi-refractivity and are now widely being used in optical films, lenses, touch screens, light guide panels, reflection films, and other components for mobile devices, displays, cameras, copiers, and other optical assemblies.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Properties, such as highly break-resistant, lightweight, chemical-resistant, transparency, and outstanding barrier characteristics
  • Growth of various sectors such as packaging, healthcare, electronics, and optics

Regional Analysis

On the basis of the region, the cyclic olefin copolymer market has been segmented by North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, & Rest of the World. North America and Western Europe are some of the major markets that are also traditional suppliers of chemicals such as specialty chemicals, bulk chemicals, and so on.
