Polypropylene Global Supply Demand Analytics Service

Polypropylene’s extreme versatility to make many everyday plastic products means its demand outlook is heavily dependent on global consumer trends.

Over 70 million tonnes of polypropylene were consumed globally in 2017, a figure that is expected to grow to nearly 100 million tonnes by 2025 to meet anticipated global demand growth. Thanks to its versatility, polypropylene has a wide range of end uses, so understanding demand from these various end use segments is key to understand polypropylene markets.

Geographical demand centres also play an important role in understanding end-use industries. As the largest producer and consumer of polypropylene in the world, rapid investments in polypropylene production has transformed China from being one of the largest importers of polypropylene to becoming self-sufficient on this polymer. While other countries will also continue to invest in polypropylene, this will primarily serve demand growth within their own domestic market.

In addition to end-use analyses, you need a comprehensive view of global supply and demand, price forecasts, and petrochemical feedstock trends to remain competitive in this rapidly changing market.
