Polypropylene Catalyst Market Dynamics

  • A process-optimized catalyst activity level, in combination with excellent isotacticity control, ensures globally competitive operational costs while maintaining full flexibility of the process to make Polypropylene products for diverse application properties.

  • Hence, a Catalyst is highly required during polypropylene polymer production.

  • The polypropylene Catalyst market primarily depends on the demand for polypropylene. Polypropylene is a preferred polymer for many end segment industries such as packaging, automotive, consumer goods, electrical & electronics, etc.

  • Polypropylene does not contain Bisphenol A (BPA) Polypropylene is a good option for food and drink packaging. The growing Food & Beverage Industry is contributing to the demand for Polypropylene in the Asia region which is fueling the demand for Polypropylene Catalysts.

  • The growing Automotive sector is increasing demand for polypropylene. Increasing demand from end-user industries for polypropylene will drive the market for Polypropylene Catalysts.

  • Innovations in Single-site catalysts like Metallocenes have also contributed to the growth of the market.

Polypropylene Catalyst Market Segmentation Analysis

  • Polypropylene Catalyst Market is segmented by Type and manufacturing process. High-activity Ziegler-Natta catalysts have increased the productivity of the process and eliminated the need for catalyst removal from the polypropylene and reduced the production costs. The Ziegler-Natta segment dominated the market.

  • New metallocene catalysts open the possibility to synthesize polymers with highly defined microstructure, tacticity, and stereoregularity, as well as long-chain branched, or blocky copolymers with excellent properties. Metallocene catalysts have provided the opportunity to produce on-purpose syndiotactic and atactic polypropylene. Therefore the metallocene segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment.

  • By manufacturing process, the market is segmented into the Bulk process and gas-phase processes. Spheripol® which is the most widely used process along with Borstar® falls into the Bulk process category. Unipol™ PP, Novolen®, Innovene™ PP, and Horizonte PP are the major gas-phase processes for polypropylene. The gas-phase process has an exceptional cost/performance ratio due to which the Gas-phase process is expected to grow at the fastest rate.

Polypropylene Catalyst Market Geographical Share

  • By region, the Global Polypropylene Catalyst market is segmented into North America, South America, Asia-pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the world. Asia-pacific accounted for a significant share of the market due to massive polymer production in the region. China produced 20.2 million tons of polypropylene whereas the remaining Asia region produced 18.7 million polypropylene.

  • Due to increasing demand for flexible packaging, rigid packaging, consumer products, and the growing automotive sector Asia-pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region for the Polypropylene Catalyst market. Europe accounted for the second largest share of the market due to 11 million tons of polypropylene production in 2016. North America produced 8.6 million tons of polypropylene in 2016.

Polypropylene Catalyst Companies and Competitive Analysis

  • Some of the major players in the Global Polypropylene Catalyst Market are China Petrochemical Corporation, Clariant, Mitsui Chemicals, Ineos, LyondellBasell Industries, AkzoNobel, Sumitomo Chemicals, W.R. Grace & Co., Japan Polypropylene Corporation, and Toho Titanium.

  • In Sept 2018, W. R. Grace & Co. the leading independent supplier of polyolefin catalyst technology and polypropylene (PP) process technology, licensed its UNIPOL® PP Process Technology to Sidi Kerir Petrochemicals Co. Located in Alexandria, Egypt
