Global Polypropylene Foams Market: Demand Analysis

Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer, an ideal material for the automotive zone. Thermoplastic foams are the chosen one among numerous polymer foams available. Expanded polypropylene foams and extruded polypropylene foams are the two major foam forms of the polypropylene. Currently, polypropylene resin is the cheapest plastic which is broadly used in the packaging, construction, and automotive industries. Polypropylene foam sheets, and polypropylene foam rolls are widely used in packaging industry.


Global Polypropylene Foams Market: Leading Segments

EPP is gaining traction from automotive manufacturers due to its effective performance aids such as energy management, enhanced functionality, durability, recyclability, improved fuel efficiencies, drop in carbon emissions, and reduction of automobiles weight. Which are predominantly used in applications such as seating, door panels, bumpers, stowage systems, pillars, parcel shelves, floor levelers, tool kits, sun visors, head rests, and myriad filler parts. For this, an automotive application is foreseen to grow at a CAGR of 5.10% during the aforesaid period.

Presently 400[HS1]  million tonnes of plastic is produced per year in the world, in which China contributes largest share. Now-a-days, polypropylene is one of the major types of plastics which are popular in use. APAC held a dominating regional share of about 30% in the global polypropylene market as of 2018. This is due to the ascending trend of polypropylene in China. Imports and domestic prices of polypropylene in this country reckoned the stronger future of polypropylene in this region. In 2016 China held as a leading manufacturer of polypropylene with its 20.2 [HS2] million tons of production, which accounts for a share of 27% in the global production of polypropylene.


Global Polypropylene Foams Market: Disruptive Trends

o   Emerging as a substitute for polystyrene and polyethylene based thermoplastics foams due to its higher hardness, superior impact strength, chemical resistance and higher service temperature range.
