Polypropylene Copolymer Market Report and Forecast 2017-2022


Polypropylene copolymer is a thermoplastic resin produced by the polymerization of propylene and ethylene. Originally it was a creation of Karl Rehn (a German chemist), but Natta perfected & synthesised the first polypropylene resin in Spain, in 1954. The main characteristics of polypropylene are its heat resistance, recyclability and high tensile strength. Polypropylene copolymer has well-diversified applications across various sectors. As it can withstand high heat, it is used to manufacture food containers and plastic items for medical or laboratory use. It also serves as an excellent packaging material for artistic and retail products. It can also be used to manufacture carpets, rugs, ropes, piping systems and mats. During 2009-2016, the global polypropylene copolymer market grew at a CAGR of around 4%. Its consumption is driven by the packaging and textile sector which account for the majority of its total global consumption.
