[Online Quarterly Update]Global Polyolefin Plastomer (POP) and Elastomer (POE) registered an appreciable growth till 2019 and is expected to achieve a healthy CAGR of around 8 % during the forecast period. POP and POE are specialty copolymers and are manufactured to form materials with modified plastic properties mainly for molding and film applications. POP and POE copolymers are witnessing subsequent demand in manufacturing of exterior parts for automotive, flexible moldings for construction and eco-friendly alternatives for packaging industry owing to the exceptional durability, high tensile strength, impact resistance and remarkable ductility.
Onset of Coronavirus in the fourth quarter of FY 20 had mixed effects on the value chain of POP and POE commodities. Some segments of POP and POE reported a phenomenal hike on their increased demand for packaging and medical applications while the demand in some of the segments plummeted due to the drastic hit on automotive and construction industry. However, tremendous efforts and initiatives being taken by various countries are anticipated to bring back the drifting finances, resulting in a gradual recovery in POP and POE in the next five years. Moreover, forecasted demand for personal commuting vehicles due to adoption of social distancing as a part of everyday lifestyle amidst prevailing Coronavirus uncertainties is another factor to propel the growth of POP and POE market.
Plastomers (POP) and Elastomers (POE) are materials with 1-olefin content greater than 10 per cent. Production of Polyolefin Plastomers and Elastomers materials require high capital investment backed by expensive process technologies. Owing to the high expenses involved, the global Polyolefin Plastomers and Elastomers market is oligopolistic in nature with limited number of players. Companies engaged in the production of POP and POE copolymers are Dow Chemical, Houston based Exxon Mobil, LG Chem in Korea, Mitsui Elastomers and SABIC in Houston. Following the current slowdown in global economy, new players are unlikely to emerge in the global market in the next few years. 
The Global Polyolefin Plastomers (POP) and (EOP) market is expected to witness a healthy growth rate in the coming years with majority of the consumption share coming from Asia Pacific region due to the rapidly expanding polymer and resin industry coupled with a drastic shift in demand towards packaging materials after Coronavirus outbreak. Moreover, Europe followed by North America is also anticipated to record significant growth in consumption of POP and POE copolymers on the back of propelling demand for packaging materials and medical devices as a ripple effect of the global pandemic.

Global Polyolefin Plastomers and Elastomers Market comprises of less than handful number of players due to high cost of initial capital investment involved. Leading players involved in the production of POP and POE include Dow Chemicals, Mitsubishi Chemicals, Exxon Mobil, LG Chem and SABIC. As of 2019, there are no proposed capacity additions in POP and POE market in the next five years.
Prices of Polyolefin Plastomers and Elastomers witnessed an incredible upsurge in 2018 at the back of significant rise in the prices of feedstock Ethylene on its limited availability due to maintenance turnarounds at several plants in final quarter of that financial year. On the other hand, outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in FY 2020 surged the demand for Polyolefin Plastomers and Elastomers in manufacturing of packaging materials and certain medical devices. However, due to prolonged slowdown in its major consuming industries like automobiles and construction, prices of POP and POE in Asia Pacific region underwent a prominent fall from USD XX/MT to USD XX/MT. Similarly, Polyolefin Plastomers and Elastomers prices in Europe and the America have Plummeted significantly. Prices in the international market are likely to recover by the beginning of FY 21 on improvement in overall market fundamentals of the product.
