Increasing demand of polypropylene from various end-use sectors such as automotive, packaging, healthcare, building & construction, and electrical & electronics attributed as the primary factors that drives the growth of the product. Features of polypropylene such as low-cost and excellent mechanical strength along with moldability are the major factors due to which more than half of the plastics used in the automotive sector are polypropylene. Polypropylene is used in various parts of an automobile, such as instrumental panels, bumpers, and door trims.
Furthermore, the properties of polypropylene that include lightweight, low density, durability, high heat resistance, and high clarity make it a suitable for packaging applications. Polypropylene is also used significantly in the electrical & electronics and building & construction for the insulation of building wrap as well as electronics goods.
However, rising environmental concern and government regulations for banning the use of plastic products expected to hamper the market growth in the upcoming years. Furthermore, there are number of substitutes available for the polypropylene such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and many other that again restricts the market growth in the coming years.
- The Asia Pacific emerged as the market leader and accounted for a revenue share of approximately 50% in the year 2019 due to growing demand for polypropylene from packaging and automotive sectors
- North America accounted for a value share of 16% in 2019 owing to its rising application for packaging in the food & beverage industry
- By type, homopolymer dominated the global polypropylene market and accounted for around 83% revenue share in the year 2019
- Increasing demand for copolymer polypropylene in medical sector because of its toughness at low temperature along with higher stress crack resistance expected to drive its demand
- Based on process, injection molding dominated the global market with a revenue share of around 37% in 2019
- Film & sheet accounted for the highest revenue share of nearly 36% in the global market in 2019 owing to its rising demand in boxes, binders, packaging materials, and portfolios
