Polycaprolactone Market Players Face Supply Chains Disruptions and Production Cuts with Lockdown Stringency, Pandemic to Hurt Short Term Prospects

Polycaprolactone manufacturers are pushing to diversify raw material sourcing, and transportation operations to reduce the supply demand gap for the duration of the pandemic.

ROCKVILLE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / July 13, 2020 / The polycaprolactone market is projected to rise at a promising 10% CAGR during the assessment period from 2020 to 2030. The Fact.MR report states that the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in stronger demand for biodegradable materials for packaging applications, which will support the adoption of polycaprolactone. However, the temporary suspension of production and logistics facilities will hurt market growth in the near future.

“Polycaprolactone is biodegradable variant of polyester, and is increasingly finding key roles to play in the healthcare sector, primarily as an affordable material for engineered tissue applications. This trend will bolster adoption as lockdown restrictions are relaxed around the world,” says the Fact.MR analyst.
