Global Polypropylene Catalyst Market is valued approximately USD 1.16 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 6.02% over the forecast period 2019-2026. The increasing demand of polypropylene in various applications is resulting in establishment of new polypropylene manufacturing units. According to a report published by Economic Times, in August 2019, GAIL (India) Ltd., is planning to spend Rs 751 crore to add a new polypropylene unit with a production capacity of 60 Kilo Tonne Per Annum (KTPA) at its Pata petrochemical complex in Uttar Pradesh. Further, ExxonMobil announced about its plans to build a new polypropylene production unit at its Baton Rouge petrochemical complex located along the US Gulf Coast in Louisiana. The increase in production of polypropylene is expected to drive the Propylene Catalyst market growth over the forecast period. Also, the increasing research and development activities for developing an improved polypropylene catalyst is expected to fuel the market growth. For instance, in October 2018, Total offered 85% of its polypropylene range in a non-phthalate catalyst version. Moreover, the availability of alternative raw materials for polypropylene production and increase in focus on metallocene catalyst based polypropylene production are the major factor likely to create lucrative growth opportunity to the market in the upcoming years. However, the need for developing cost-effective and hazard-free catalysts with improved properties is a crucial factor anticipated to hinder the growth of global Polypropylene Catalyst market during the forecast period.
The regional analysis of global Polypropylene Catalyst Market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and Rest of the World. Asia Pacific is the leading/significant region across the world in terms of market share owing to the increasing demand from end-use industries including chemical, packaging, optical, medical and automotive. Increasing per capita expenditure on healthcare and food products, significant consumer base, rising urban population, low labor costs, and easy availability of raw materials are attracting international packaging, electronics, and automotive manufacturers to establish production facilities to the region, thus creating high demand for PP in these industries. Apart from this, growth in the construction industry in China, India, and Indonesia is expected to drive the demand for PP in the region, thereby propelling the growth of the polypropylene catalyst market.
