Polypropylene is the thermoplastic polymer with properties such as, high melting point and lightweight. Polypropylene is majorly used in textiles, packaging, medical glassware and in packaging of food & beverage. Synthetic polypropylene is made from the petroleum based polymers that are obtained from hydrocarbon and petroleum products. Bio based polypropylene are the polypropylene obtained from the natural raw materials such as sugarcane, beet and corn.
Polypropylene has wide range of applications in several industries. Growing demand in the automotive industries drives the synthetic and bio based polypropylene market. Use of polypropylene in the construction and rapidly rising demand for infrastructural sector fuels the growth of the market. Also increasing used of polypropylene in the textile industry is expected to experience high market growth in the near future. However, several regulations led by the government for the ban of plastic products may hinder the growth of polypropylene market. Nevertheless, ongoing research for innovated products and solutions for managing the waste obtained from the polypropylene is anticipated to offer sufficient opportunities in the coming years.
