Published | 16 March 2022

The growth of the polypropylene market can be primarily attributed to the rising application of polypropylenes in raffia, fiber, and film & sheet, along with the increasing trend of the usage of polypropylene (PP) in the automotive industry in order to manufacture lightweight vehicles so as to enhance the fuel efficiency…

A recent study by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting revealed that the Global Polypropylene Market was worth USD 76.1 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 115.4 billion by the year 2028, growing at a CAGR of 6% over the analysis period of 2022-2028. The expansion in the polypropylene market can be primarily attributed to the large array of properties exhibited by polypropylene that expands its employability across several sectors. Polypropylene is one of the plastics with the lowest density.  Moreover, it provides chemical resistance, excellent property balance, durability and versatility. It can be used as flexible fibers for tapes, carpets, and carpet backing. Thus, these factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the global high-density polyethylene market during the forecast period 2022-2028. 

Fast-Paced Shift Towards Electronic Vehicles Driving the Global Market Growth

There has been an escalation in the demand for electric vehicles due to rising government regulations regarding the reduction of greenhouse gas emitted by traditional vehicles, soundless operation and high fuel efficiency. Polypropylene is one most extensively used plastics to manufacture electric vehicles. Moreover, The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China has predicted that the country’s electric car sales will double in the approaching few years. Polypropylene is a cost-effective material having outstanding mechanical properties and moldability. Consequently, it is used in various parts, like instrumental panels, bumpers as well as door trims. These factors may act as crucial growth drivers for the polypropylene market during the forecast period 2022-2028.

Packaging Industry to Grow at A Higher Growth Rate During the Forecast Period

The packaging industry dominated the polypropylene market in 2021, and this trend is projected to stay constant during the forecast period 2022-2028. Polypropylene is the most commonly used plastic in the packaging industry. Mostly, it finds application in food packaging having direct contact with food or beverages. This is due to the fact that polypropylene does not leach chemicals in food. The packaging industry is closely followed by the automotive industry. This can be attributed to the surging demand for electric as well as hybrid electric vehicles (EV/HEV). Moreover, polypropylene can also be used as insulating material for high voltage carrying cables as it provides thinner, lightweight and flexible insulation.
