The global polypropylene market is expected to grow from $95.46 billion in 2021 to $103.79 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services effecting many markets across the globe. The polypropylene market is expected to grow to $129.96 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 5.8%.
The polypropylene market consists of the sales of block copolymers, and random copolymers. Values in this market are: 'factory gate' values, that is the value of goods sold by the manufacturers or creators of the goods, whether to other entities (including downstream manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers) or directly to end customers. The value of goods in this market includes related services sold by the creators of the goods.
Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer produced by chain-growth polymerization of the monomer propylene and is used in automotive fittings and industrial fibers. It is resilient, resistant to fatigue, and highly resistant to most acids and alkalis.
Asia Pacific was the largest region in the polypropylene market in 2022. North America was the second-largest region in the polypropylene market. The regions covered in the polypropylene market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.
The main products of polypropylene are homopolymer and copolymer. A homopolymer is a polymer like polyethylene containing identical monomer units. These are used in applications such as injection molding, fiber and raffia, film and sheet, and blow molding that are used by end users such as packaging, automotive, consumer products, electrical and electronics, and other industries.
Rising demand for thermoplastic materials has contributed to the growth of the polypropylene market. Due to their unique chemical properties, thermoplastic materials can be recycled and remolded without affecting their physical properties. As a result, thermoplastic materials are far more useful in a wide range of applications, including clothing, packaging, food, and beverages. Additionally, they are also used in heavy-duty applications such as the aerospace, military, and medical industries. According to the American Chemistry Council, the production of plastic resins, which serve as the foundation for all plastic products, climbed 0.9 percent in the United States in 2020, compared to 1.2 percent in 2019. The rising demand for thermoplastic materials increased the demand for the polypropylene market, thereby driving the market.
Variations in the prices of raw materials such as crude oil have always been a major challenge in the polypropylene market. Fluctuating crude oil prices increase the operating expenses, affecting the bottom lines of manufacturing companies in this market. For instance, according to the 'Business Standard', polypropylene became costlier by 4.6% due to rising oil prices. Crude oil is the main source of petrochemicals as plastics are produced primarily from petroleum products. Therefore, crude oil prices are one of the key factors affecting plastic costs, making them very volatile. Volatile prices thereby have a negative impact on the polypropylene market, affecting the market's growth.
Eco-friendly polypropylene compounds are increasingly being used due to strict government rules and regulations over recycling and environmental protection. The polypropylene compounds possess unique qualities, making them more favorable as an alternative in the automotive industry. For example, Grand Siam Composites, a joint venture between SCG Chemicals, Mitsui Chemicals Inc., and Prime Polymer, has developed new technologies and inventions to produce high-quality products that are environmentally friendly. With those advancements, GSC's polypropylene compounds are producing high-quality automobile parts such as consoles, instrument panels, bumpers, door panels, and various accessories.
In June 2021, LyondellBasell, one of the world's major plastics, chemicals, and refinery firms based in the Netherlands, acquired PolyPacific Polymers. This acquisition contributes to LyondellBasell's expansion of its polypropylene business. PolyPacific Polymers Sdn Bhd is a Malaysian firm that produces modified polypropylene olefin compounds.
The countries covered in the polypropylene market are: Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Russia, the UK, the USA, and Australia.
