Global Polypropylene Random Copolymer Market: Snapshot

Polypropylene, a thermoplastic polymer that finds widespread applications in textiles, laboratory equipment, packaging and labeling, automobile components, and stationery. Increasing knowledge about polypropylene random copolymer, including its high impact resistance, good flexibility and optical characteristics, transparency, gloss, and lightweight is said to be stoking growth in its demand.

On account of its many benefits, its applications is growing. Further rising spending capacity of people worldwide, is resulting in elevated packaged and processed food demand, which in turn is working in favor of the global polypropylene random copolymer market.

Mushrooming supermarkets, particularly in developing countries, is also proving beneficial to the market. Further, growing focus of food manufacturers towards aesthetic packaging and labeling along with added durability is also bolstering growth of the market. Ethylene and naphtha are basic raw materials required for the production of polypropylene random copolymer. The turbulent prices of crude oils and petrochemicals are, therefore, negatively impacting the growth of the market.

The main regions studied in the report are North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. North America, of them, is a leading market on account of the presence of a solid healthcare infrastructure that is fuelling growth. The U.S. is the primary driver of expansion in the region due to high demand for food and beverage packaging.

Asia Pacific is another key region which will likely grow at a healthy clip due to changing lifestyle of people and a burgeoning middle class population. Japan, China, and India are major markets in the region.

Global Polypropylene Random Copolymer Market: Overview

Polypropylene, which is also referred to as polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer extensively used in a wide range of applications such as textiles, packaging and labeling, laboratory equipment, automobile components, and stationery. In polypropylene random copolymer, randomly polymerized ethylene monomer is added to polypropylene homopolymer, which lowers the melting point, reduces the polymer crystallinity, and makes the polymer more transparent. They are used for stretch blow molding and injection molding applications that require improved clarity and impact. Their demand is high across different verticals such as food and beverages, pharmaceutical, chemicals, and consumer products.

Global Polypropylene Random Copolymer Market: Key Trends

The rising awareness regarding the benefits of polypropylene random copolymer, including excellent impact resistance, good flexibility and optical characteristics, transparency, gloss, and lightweight is augmenting the market. Owing to its benefits, its scope of applications are widening. The increasing disposable income of people around the world is resulting in elevated packaged and processed food demand, which in turn is working in favor of the global polypropylene random copolymer market.

The growing number of supermarkets in emerging regions is also providing a fillip to the market. Moreover, the shifting focus of food manufacturers towards aesthetic packaging and labeling along with added durability is supplementing the growth of the market. Ethylene and naphtha are basic raw materials required for the production of polypropylene random copolymer. The turbulent prices of crude oils and petrochemicals are, therefore, negatively impacting the growth of the market.

Global Polypropylene Random Copolymer Market: Market Potential

The healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors are presenting tremendous lucrative opportunities, which is prompting manufacturers to develop products that can better adapt and scale to suit the requirements of the end users. For instance, in February 2017, LyondellBasell introduced a new polypropylene random copolymer, Purell RP320M that can be used in labware, caps and closures, flexible and rigid packaging of pharmaceuticals and medical devices. The copolymer is designed to offer homogeneity and clarity to address high-quality requirements in injection molding and cast film extrusion conversion technologies.

Besides, polypropylene random copolymers carry immense potential to replace conventional beverage packaging such as PET and glass, which is likely to attract new players to invest in this market.
