Polypropylene Catalyst Market - Overview
Polypropylene catalyst is used in the polymerization reaction of propylene to form polypropylene (PP) in a fluidized bed reactor. The Ziegler–Natta catalyst segment dominates the global polypropylene catalyst market, due to low price of the product. Potential application of polypropylene catalyst lies in the production of polypropylene for injection-molded products such as vials, suture materials for surgery, and automotive interior parts including bumper facias, instrumental panels, and door panels. The injection-molded products segment is anticipated to continue to dominate the polypropylene catalyst market during the forecast period.
The demand for polypropylene is increasing worldwide, due to increase in the global production of polypropylene, led by rise in the demand for lightweight, PP-based materials in different industries such as automotive and packaging. Polypropylene catalyst is required to support the production of polypropylene. Though metallocene catalyst is expensive, it offers major benefits, as it is a single-sited catalyst with identical active sites that meet the requirement in terms of molecular weight and stereo structure of polypropylene.
