Polypropylene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028
The global polypropylene market size reached US$ 127.1 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 160.8 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 3.9% during 2023-2028.
Polypropylene (C3H6)n, also known as polypropene, is a flexible and crystalline thermoplastic resin obtained by the polymerization reaction of propylene gas and a catalyst. It provides resistance against chemicals, heat, and extreme temperatures, which makes it safe to design plastic casings in electrical appliances, cables, and piping systems. Additionally, its flexible strength and resistance to moisture, bacteria, mold, and chemical corrosion make it ideal for medical applications, especially sterilization methods. At present, it is widely used in injection molding applications as (C3H6)n is easily molded into different shapes without altering the original product quality.
Polypropylene Market Trends:
The growing global population is increasing the sales of electrical appliances. This is positively influencing the need for (C3H6)n due to its excellent dielectric strength, insulating properties, and arc resistance. In addition, the widespread adoption of (C3H6)n in the automotive industry to manufacture lightweight, energy-efficient, and cost-effective vehicles is contributing to the market growth. In line with this, the growing concerns about the harmful emissions from conventional automobiles and the shifting consumer preference toward electric and hybrid electric vehicles (EV/HEVs) are catalyzing the demand for (C3H6)n. Apart from this, the emerging trend of online shopping and food ordering is driving the need for effective packaging materials made with (C3H6)n due to its low density, durability, and heat resistance properties. (C3H6)n minimizes food deterioration and retains the authentic flavor as it resists moisture. Consequently, it is increasingly being utilization in the food and beverage (F&B) industry for effective packaging. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of infectious diseases is catalyzing the demand for (C3H6)n in the healthcare industry for manufacturing safety kits, such as medical masks and gowns. Moreover, the growing use of (C3H6)n in various construction applications, such as air and moisture barrier membranes, carpet textiles, piping systems, and insulating building wraps, is expected to drive the market.
