Published Date : Jan 2020 | No. of Pages : 140 Pages | Category : Chemical and Material

The global polypropylene market size was around USD 97.00 billion in 2018 and expected to reach USD 155.83 Billion By 2027 with CAGR of 6.3% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Polypropylene is the second-most commonly produced plastic, in terms of volume, after polyethylene. The global production of polypropylene resin is 56.0 Million Metric Tons in 2018 and is projected to reach around 88.0 Million Metric Tons by 2026, growing at a rate of approximately 5.7%.

Increasing demand for polypropylene from the packaging industry is estimated to stimulate market demand in the forecast period. Superior barrier properties, high tensile strength, better surface finish, and low cost allows polypropylene to be an ideal product for numerous packaging applications.

Polypropylene films’ have exceptional optical clarity and low moisture/vapor transmission makes it appropriate for implementation in food packaging. Other applications comprise electronic industry films, graphic arts applications, and disposable diaper tabs, among others. These films are available either as a cast film or bi-axially orientated polypropylene. Also, polypropylene is blow molded to manufacture bottles, crates, and pots. Thin-walled containers made from polypropylene are usually used for packaging of food items.

Increasing demand for lightweight material in automobiles is anticipated to drive market demand in the future. The automotive industry is one of the most significant consumers of polypropylene. The role of polymers such as polypropylene, in the design and manufacturing of automobiles is witnessing a rapid increase in recent years with stringent regulations and shifting consumer habits fueling demand for lightweight, affordable, and fuel-efficient vehicles. Fuel efficiency has become one of the essential requirement in automotive vehicle design owing to the rising fuel prices and stricter environmental regulations, which combined with high demand for automobiles as well as a rise in the level of disposable income in developing nations is projected to drive the market demand.

The global polypropylene market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Polypropylene also known as polypropene, is a thermoplastic linear hydrocarbon polymer resin, with little or no unsaturation. It is a semi rigid and translucent material which does not presents stress-cracking problems and offers excellent chemical and electrical resistance at high temperatures. Polypropylene is a versatile product because of which it is used in numerous industries such as toy making, automobile, carpeting, paper, and manufacturing of laboratory equipments. It is easy to customize and can be coloured in various ways without degrading the original quality of the plastic. Besides, it is a good alternative to other types of plastics as it does not contains Bisphenol A (BPA). BPA is not a safe option for packaging as it is an endocrine disruptor leading to various health issues such as diabetes, heart diseases, hormone and brain development problems in young children and foetuses. The rising demand of polypropylene from end use industries such as construction and especially automobile owing to the increasing demand for light weight vehicles is driving the global polypropylene market.

Further key findings from the report suggest

  • Synthetic Polymers held a major market share in 2018 and are expected to grow at a moderate rate in the forecast period which is attributed to its widespread application in several industries.
