Polycaprolactone Market to Grow at a CAGR of 9.5% during the 2023 to 2031 Forecast Period | TMR Study


Increase in adoption of lightweight and high-performance materials in various end-use industries is also boosting demand for polycaprolactone.

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, Nov. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Transparency Market Research Inc. – The global polycaprolactone market stood at US$ 500 million in 2023 and is projected to reach US$ 1.1 billion in 2031. The global polycaprolactone market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 9.5% between 2023 and 2031.

Polycaprolactone (PCL) is a partially crystalline biodegradable polyester produced either by polycondensation of carboxylic acid or ring-opening polymerization using catalysts such as stannous octoate. Biodegradable polyesters help address environmental concerns associated with plastic pollution. PCL is used to make thermoplastic polyurethane, which, in turn, is employed as an elastomer, adhesive, and coating in various end-users including automobiles, paints & coatings, and construction. Polycaprolactone resin has a low melting point, making it easy to process and shape.


Polyurethane-based materials are gaining in the construction sector due to their elasticity and flexibility. R&D of novel polyurethane adhesives is projected to offer lucrative opportunities to vendors in the global polycaprolactone industry. Vendors are developing sustainable products for use in the production of transient and biodegradable electronics. They are also specializing in the production of biodegradable polycaprolactone for medical devices.

Thermoplastic polyurethane is utilized in tissue management in the healthcare sector. It is also used in the fabrication of fused filament in 3D printing, sutures, and drug delivery devices. Additionally, PCL-matrix composite coatings are preferred for dental implants. PCL-based nanoparticles are utilized to deliver several drugs such as antibiotics, anti-cancer agents, and anti-inflammatory agents. Polycaprolactone is derived from crude oil. Fluctuations in prices of crude oil are likely to limit the polycaprolactone market growth in the near future.

Non-foam polyurethanes, better known as potting compounds, are widely employed in the electronics sector to seal, encapsulate, and insulate pressure-sensitive and fragile microelectronics components, printed circuit boards, and underwater cables. Polyurethane potting compounds, particularly those containing polycaprolactone, provide exceptional adhesion and dielectric properties to protect electronic components and boards from mechanical stresses and shocks.

Polycaprolactone Market: Growth Drivers

  • Lightweight and high-performance materials are gaining traction among end-users. Polyurethane has a high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent insulation properties, thereby facilitating its use in high-performance flooring solutions. Reflective plastic coverings atop polyurethane foam can repel sunlight, which helps in maintaining the temperature of houses. Moreover, foam-core panels provide a broad variety of colors for roofs and walls. Foam-cored garage doors and entry doors are available in diverse styles and finishes. Polyurethane-based materials are known for their elasticity and flexibility, making them an ideal solution for the construction of modular homes. Thus, expansion in the construction sector is fueling the polycaprolactone market value.
  • Surge in demand for transient and biodegradable electronics is boosting the polycaprolactone market progress. Biodegradable electronics can be produced at a low cost and offer high design flexibility. Radio frequency magnetron sputtering facilitates the metallization of electro-spun polycaprolactone. Electroless plating can be done at low temperatures, making it ideal for metalizing polycaprolactone. This metalized PCL is further used to manufacture electronic components and boards.
