Global Polyphenylene Oxide Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Polyphenylene oxide (PPO) is a high-performance thermoplastic polymer with excellent mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties. It has good dimensional stability and resistance to stress cracking. PPO is used in engineering applications where these properties are important, such as gears, bearings, seals, and housings.

PPO Resin:

PPO resin, also known as Polyphenylene Oxide or PPO is a synthetic material that belongs to the class of engineering plastics. It has excellent chemical and electrical resistance properties which make it suitable for applications in automotive, aerospace & defense industries. PPO resins are used to manufacture various components such as engine parts, transmission parts and wire harnesses which find application in heavy vehicles such as trucks & buses along with passenger cars.


Polyphenylene oxide (PPO) is a kind of polymer, which contains many kinds of polyphenylene groups. Polyphenylene oxide has excellent chemical and mechanical properties such as high tensile strength, heat resistance, toughness and flexibility. It also has good electrical properties such as high insulation and low conductivity. All these excellent properties make PPO very popular in the market nowadays.

Application Insights:

Air separation membranes was the largest application segment in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to its rising demand for water vapor management in dry climate regions, such as Middle East & Africa, China, India and Mexico. Air separation membranes are used for drying industrial process gases containing moisture that cannot be removed by simple ventilation techniques. Polyphenylene oxide based air separation membranes are used where high purity levels are required or where other materials would cause problems with leakage or fouling of equipment surfaces.

Medical devices were another key application segment accounting for around 15% share of global revenue in 2015 on account of growing product usage as an adhesive material across various medical devices including syringes, surgical instruments and diagnostic kits among others.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the leading regional market in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounted for a revenue share of more than 60% in 2016 owing to high product demand from various end-use industries, such as automotive, electronics, medical devices & equipment and construction. China is projected to remain a key consumer due to rapid industrialization along with increasing per capita disposable income levels.

The domestic appliances industry in Europe has been witnessing healthy growth since past few years on account of rising replacement rates of refrigerators and washing machines along with improving living standards among consumers. Growing penetration of solar panels for electricity generation coupled with stringent government regulations regarding carbon emissions from vehicles is likely to augment PPPO demand over the next eight years.

North America emerged as one of the major markets for polyphenylene oxide (PPPO) based air separation membranes (ASM).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive and electrical & electronics
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of polyphenylene oxide over traditional plastics
  • Growing investments in research and development to improve the properties of polyphenylene oxide
  • Expansion of manufacturing capacities by key players in response to rising demand
  • Emergence of new applications for polyphenylene oxide in various end-use industries
