The European market for PP compounds.
The European market for PP compounds.

According to a newly published report by AMI, European demand for PP compounds has stalled since the middle of 2018 caused by mounting issues in the automotive industry.

The report said
tightening legislation on fuel efficiency and emissions is adding to their challenges.

The largest market for PP Compounds is automotive which is facing unprecedented change as it approaches the challenges of moving away from ICE (combustion engines) and towards broadly defined eco-sustainability targets such as VW’s July 2019 ‘Go-To-Zero Mission Statement’.

There are fundamental design differences between EVs (Electric Vehicles) and HEVs (Hybrid Electric Vehicles) impacting the use of plastics. In both designs however, light-weighting is increasingly valuable and there is therefore intense competition between different solutions and materials.

The large PP Compounders are bringing to market substantial performance developments enabling not only higher performance but also replacement of higher cost, higher density engineering plastics and metal. 

Particularly fast growing is glass fibre reinforced PP which is supplied in both short and long glass fibre formats. Glass reinforced PP is increasingly used in semi-structural applications like front-end modules, instrument panel carriers and door modules.

In addition, the demand in Central and Eastern Europe has been growing rapidly because of increasing production of cars and appliances and the region has now outstripped the German powerhouse for size.
