Polypropylene Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
While on one hand, applications such as packaging, automation, and consumer products will stimulate growth in the global polypropylene market, environmental concerns act as an impediment to growth, says a latest study by Transparency Market Research. The U.S.-based market research firm expects the global polypropylene market to reach US$124.01 billion by 2019 from its 2012 value of US$77.46 billion, registering a CAGR of 6.3% between 2013 and 2019. These findings are detailed in the report titled, ‘Polypropylene Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019.’Among other drivers for the polypropylene market, the report ranks changing lifestyles and higher disposable incomes among the top factors. The demand for polypropylene is soaring in emerging economies in the Asia Pacific region, and this reflects in the increased demand for the material from various end-use industries. However, the growth prospects of the global polypropylene market will be somewhat dampened by the volatility in raw material prices and the negative environmental associations linked with the use of polypropylene. This factor, however, opens up potentially lucrative opportunities for the development of bio-based polypropylene rather than focusing development efforts on synthetic polypropylene.
