The global coffee pods and capsules market was valued at 14.74$ billion in 2017, and is expected to register a CAGR of 7.1%, during the forecast period (2018-2023).
As coffee is the most consumed beverage by volume, high demand for coffee globally is one of the major factors responsible for the growing popularity of coffee pods among consumers. The reason for this market’s growth is Its one-time-use and disposable features.
Electric and autonomous vehicles figured prominently at this year’s Plastic In Automotive Engineering (PIAE) Congress, with the transition to electric vehicles forecast to take place in the near future. This development raises a number of challenges for plastic automotive parts. Cooling systems will be based less on water and oil cooling and more on efficient dissipation of heat from the plastic parts themselves. This demands significantly enhancing the heat conduction of the polymer compounds while conserving their mechanical properties.
Polyram’s engineers report on the latest trends in the automotive industry as reflected in the recent PIAE congress and exhibition held in March of this year: electric and autonomous vehicles, focus on surface textures, plastics for the outer chassis, and a continuation of efforts to reduce weight.
The NPE exhibition, which takes place every three years in the US and coordinates all polymer activity in North America, is the second most important exhibition after the K in Germany.
According to information from the exhibition more than 2100 companies from 121 countries were exhibiting this year, and Polyram was there right in the thick of it!

Polyoxymethylene (POM), also known to many by the names acetal, polyacetal and polyformaldehyde, is an engineered thermoplastic with high degree of crystallinity.
It is mainly used to mold parts requiring precision, high stiffness, high impact and low friction. POM is supplied in two forms, homopolymer and copolymer.
Polyram has recently launched two new developments, further expanding the wide range of materials available in the company’s Polytron® family of products.
The first development focuses on low emission (LE) materials, especially suited for use in parts designed for the driver’s environment in the automotive industry.
The second development focuses on a compound containing semi-aromatic Polyamide (PA9T) as the main polymer. Read More
When looking for the right bonding resin to tie layers together, the search for the ideal candidate can sometimes resemble looking for a marriage partner.
After all, we all want to find the best suitable match. Luckily, with a bonding agent, the search can be systematized by asking three questions and defining your requirements accordingly.
Polyram has the unique ability to partner with its clients and to develop engineered plastics according to tailored specifications, strict industry standards and client requests.
We are happy to take this opportunity and proud to introduce you to three unique Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) products:
- Hydrolysis Stabilized PBT
- Flame Retardant PBT
