The latest market report of Ceresana expects the global demand for polypropylene (PP) to grow by 3% on average until 2024.

PP is the second most important standard plastic after polyethylene, compatible with many processing technologies, and used for the most diverse applications ranging from packaging to household appliances, clothes, and vehicles.

The most important sales market for polypropylene in 2016 was flexible packaging with a demand volume of 17.66 million tons. Widely spread every-day products such as shrink-wrap packaging, shopping bags, and packaging for cigarettes or snacks are included. The production of rigid packaging, such as yoghurt cups, containers, bottles, and closures of all kinds ranked second.

Since it is one of the most versatile packaging materials, PP can assert itself against the competition of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and other plastics. The application areas consumer goods and fibers followed.

Injection molding is an important processing technology in the plastics industry and of special importance for polypropylene in particular. The comparatively fast process is used for the production of large volumes of identical goods ranging from disposable products to highly complex precision components.

In 2016, almost 23 million tons of PP were processed in injection molding. The analysts of Ceresana forecast growth rates of 3.4% per year in the upcoming eight years for this process.

Polypropylene is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic polymer. Besides uniform homopolymers, there are various copolymers such as random and block copolymers. These plastic types have mainly similar characteristics, different properties, however, help with the choice of the best material for specific applications and a desired budget.

Polypropylene copolymers will presumably account for notably higher growth rates compared to homopolymers until 2024, according to the report.
