Polypropylene is the single largest consumed polymer resin in the world. It is one of the most versatile plastics made from polyolefin. It is produced by the polymerization of propylene. There are three main grades of polypropylene produced: homopolymer, co-polymer, and impact co-polymer. Polypropylene possesses intrinsic properties such as high stiffness, good tensile strength, and inertness toward acids, alkalis, and solvents, which makes it suitable for many applications in various industries such as Packaging, Automotive, Consumer Goods, Construction, Electrical, and Electronic.
The analysts forecast the Global Polypropylene market to grow at a CAGR of 8.85 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The report, the Global Polypropylene Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers North America, Europe, the APAC region, the MEA region, and the South and Central America; it also covers the Global Polypropylene market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One of the emerging trends in the market is the growing demand for bio-based polypropylene across the globe. The increasing demand for bio-based products has shifted the focus of polypropylene manufacturers from synthetic to bio-based polypropylene.
According to the report, China has emerged as the fastest and largest consumer of polypropylene in packaging applications in recent years. It has witnessed the maximum growth and is the main driver of the demand for polypropylene.
Further, the report states that volatile raw material prices pose a big challenge for the market. High raw material costs lead to a decline in profit margins for polypropylene manufacturers, thus restricting the growth of the market.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
