Analysts’ Viewpoint

Amidst volatility in demand and supply of goods and services, manufacturers are focusing on business-critical projects during the COVID-19 outbreak. The rotomolding market is anticipated to grow at a favorable CAGR of ~6% during the assessment period. However, lack of material options, high process durations, and significant expense on crude oil materials are hampering market growth. Hence, companies should increase their research expenditure to incorporate biodegradable & bioderivative materials to enhance production processes and reduce material and production costs. Sustainable production practices involving innovative resins are resulting in less material use and reduced transportation emissions. Knowledgeable technical staff involving qualified engineers are helping manufacturers gain market recognition.

Rotomolding Market: Overview

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global rotomolding market for the base year 2019 and the forecast period 2024 to 2030, rise in building & construction activities is expected to boost the global rotomolding market during the forecast period
  • In terms of revenue, the global rotomolding market is estimated to cross US$ 7Bn by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of ~6% during the forecast period
  • Rotomolding is primarily used in the manufacture of tanks. Rotomolding is also widely employed to manufacture polyethylene plastic.

Diverse Applications of Polyethylene-based Rotomolding Products: Key Driver

  • Polyethylene is a widely available plastic. Large volume of polyethylene is produced across the world each year. Rotomolding is a rapidly expanding plastic processing technique. Rotational molded polyethylene is utilized in various applications in watercraft, automotive, agricultural, kayaks, industrial products, and various indoor products such as toys. A prominent advantage of using polyethylene is that it is impact resistant. This makes it an ideal option for products such as boats and large containers. The material is also corrosion-resistant. This helps prevent damage caused by oxidation and other chemical reactions.
  • Using polyethylene for rotomolding is considered eco-friendly, owing to its recyclability. Polyethylene, such as HDPE & LDPE, can be recycled into other products. This is more cost-effective than manufacturing a new product from new plastic.
  • Currently, rotational molded plastic boats make up a bulk of the boat industry due to the longevity of the polyethylene material. These types of boats do not require painting or finish, and are easy to maintain. Rotational shaped watercraft can be dual or single wall for extra durability, as polyethylene hulls can resist the rough environment of water solutions.
  • Applications of rotomolded polyethylene in sports & leisure and toy industries have increased due to various factors such as packaging flexibility and durability. The agricultural sector is also driving the polyethylene market, owing to increase in the demand for polyethylene to manufacture hydraulic tanks, cornheads, seed hoppers, dump boxes, livestock feeders, livestock drinkers, etc.
  • Beneficial properties of rotomolded polyethylene, such as increased impact strength, good chemical resistance, high ductility, and low weight, are expected to boost the polyethylene as well as rotomolding market

Major Challenges for Rotomolding Market

  • Rotomolding requires high cycle time, usually eight rotations per minute, and can take up to three hours to complete one part, as compared to that taken by other plastic processing techniques
  • Raw material used in the rotomolding process needs to be in fine powder form or promptly changed over from granules to a fine powder and must possess high thermal stability, thereby limiting raw material selection to poly-based resins
  • In case of rotomolding, the entire mold must be cooled, while only the product needs to be cooled before being removed in other processes. Water cooling processes are possible; however, there is still a significant down time of the mold.
  • These disadvantages of rotational molding are expected to hamper the rotomolding market

Expansion of Construction Sector of Asia Pacific to Offer Lucrative Opportunities for Rotomolding Market

  • In 2015, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, announced plans to build homes for the urban population.
