Polypropylene Catalyst Market by Type (Ziegler-Natta, Metallocene), Manufacturing Process (Bulk Process, Gas Phase Process), Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America) - Global Forecast to 2022
The polypropylene catalyst market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2017 to 2022
The polypropylene catalyst market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 1.09 billion in 2017 to USD 1.46 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2017 to 2022. The increasing demand for the polypropylene catalyst across various end-use industries, including chemical, automotive, packaging, optical, and medical is expected to drive the growth of the polypropylene catalyst market across the globe. Some factors, such as R&D activities for the development of enhanced polypropylene catalyst and increasing production of polypropylene are driving demand. Regulations against phthalate-based catalysts in developed economies are expected to restrain the market demand for PP catalysts.
Metallocene catalyst segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2017 to 2022
The metallocene catalyst type is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. Metallocenes are organometallic compounds with a sandwich-like spatial arrangement, consisting of a transition metal (iron, titanium, and zirconium) between two cyclic organic compounds. The growth of the metallocene catalyst segment is attributed to their efficiency and ability to produce larger amounts of PP. This factor is leading to increasing investments in R&D for these catalysts by many major companies.
The polypropylene catalyst market in the APAC is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2017 to 2022
The polypropylene catalyst market in the Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. The increasing demand for PP catalysts from various end-use industries, including chemical, automotive, packaging, optical, and medical in the region is fueling the growth of the PP catalyst market. In addition, increasing per capita expenditure on healthcare and food products, significant consumer base, rising urban population, low labor costs, and easy availability of raw materials are attracting international packaging, electronics, and automotive manufacturers to establish production facilities in the region, thus creating high demand for PP from these industries and hence driving the market for the PP catalyst in the APAC.
