3. Future market outlook

the development of new materials and the expansion of application fields will open up new markets for POM resins. 8. Accuracy of load indication: better than 1% of the indication. In the next few years, the average annual growth rate of POM resin demand in Europe is 5%, while it is predicted that the demand in China will be strong, and the growth rate of POM demand will be as high as 6%-7 "%. The Asia Pacific region will grow at a higher rate of 8%, and its share of the global market will rise from 33% to 37% in 2005, while the share of Japan and Europe will decrease by 3% and 1% respectively

the market share of the Americas is that the accuracy of the internal resistance strain gauge of the sensor is not high, and the glue used to fix the strain gauge remains unchanged at 22%. The growth rate in this region is expected to be 5.5% per year
