TopOlefin specialises in the production of optical resin materials applicable in a wide range of industries including life science, new energy, and automotives. Currently, around 100% of such materials depend on imports from Japanese corporations; however, about 70% of the global demand for optical resin materials comes from China.

The second construction phase of the firm’s production facility will be financed via the proceeds of the latest round. The second phase will see the capacity of the production facility increase to 100,000 tonnes per year, from the current 50,000 tonnes per year.

The investment in TopOlefin is a sign of the growing interest in the optical resin market. The optical resin market is a large and growing market, and there is a growing demand for optical resin materials that can be used in a variety of industries. TopOlefin is well-positioned to capitalize on this demand, and the investment from Kingray Capital and Raystone Capital will help the company to achieve its growth goals.
