Global polyphenylene oxide (PPO) market is estimated to reach a value of USD ~950 billion in 2025 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9%

Polyphenylene Oxide (PPO) is a strong engineering plastic with outstanding thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties. It is commonly used in its blended form and mixed with either polystyrene, polyamide, or styrene-butadiene copolymer. Glass transition temperature of PPO is around 215°C. However, on demand basis, it can be adjusted by blending with polystyrene. Low moisture absorption and low thermal expansion make PPO one of the prominent dimensionally stable thermoplastic available. PPO is extensively used for electrical housing and structural components owing to its superior insulating properties, flame and thermal resistance over a wide range of service temperature. They are widely used in numerous applications such as electrical & electronics, household appliances, and automotive & transportation, fluid handling, air separation membranes, and medical.

Some of the important factors that positively influence the growth of the Polyphenylene Oxide Market are increasing per capita disposable income, improved living standards, and growing medical sector. Additionally, increasing usage of PPO in the manufacturing of household appliances along with continuous growth of electronics sector is expected to drive the market growth. Increasing investment in ongoing R&D projects along with the increasing demand for PPO plastics from numerous application is predicted to fuel the market growth. Furthermore, the growth of fluid handling system market is one of the major trends that is expected to contribute to the market growth in the upcoming years. However, availability of PVC alternatives to PPO is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
