Polypropylene Catalyst Market

Polypropylene Catalyst Market by Type (Ziegler-Natta, Metallocene), Manufacturing Process (Bulk Process, Gas Phase Process), Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America) - Global Forecast to 2022

Report Code: CH 3265 Oct, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[96 Pages Report] Polypropylene Catalyst Market was valued at USD 1.01 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 1.46 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.1%. The base year that has been considered for this study on the polypropylene catalyst market is 2016, while the forecast period is between 2017 and 2022.

Increasing production of polypropylene

The market for PP Catalyst is growing rapidly because of the increasing consumption of PP in the emerging markets of APAC, such as China, India, and South Korea, as well as in countries such as Belgium, Canada, and Saudi Arabia. Construction of new manufacturing facilities or de-bottlenecking of existing plants is expected to be carried out in these countries that will play a major role in propelling the demand for PP Catalyst. Two new PP plants are expected to start in Canada during the forecast period, making Canada the second-largest PP manufacturer in North America.

Regulations against phthalate-based catalysts in developed economies

Phthalates are synthetic chemicals that are used in a variety of consumer products such as medical devices, food wraps, building materials, and packaging and automotive parts. Polypropylene manufactured using phthalate-based catalysts are used in tubes, fittings, packaging materials, automobile parts, and hinges. This use of these catalysts leads to human health concerns. Formaldehyde and acetaldehyde are released during fires and according to International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), formaldehyde is classified as human carcinogen and acetaldehyde as a possible human carcinogen. Use of phthalate-based substances may lead to reduced fertility, reproductive toxicity, and testicular toxicity in animals. It may also lead to adverse health effects such as obesity and reduced masculinization in new born boys. Hence, REACH regulates the production of phthalate-based PP Catalyst, which are the basic components of the fourth-generation ZN catalysts. Products containing these chemicals are kept under observation, and many companies are actively focusing on the development of viable alternatives.

Objectives of the report are as follows:

  • To define and segment the polypropylene catalyst market on the basis of type, manufacturing process, and region
  • To define, analyze, and forecast the market size of the polypropylene catalyst in terms of volume and value
  • To provide detailed information regarding the key factors (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges) influencing the growth of the market
  • To analyze the market segmentation and forecast the market size based on type and manufacturing process
  • To analyze the market segmentation and forecast on the basis of key regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), the Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • To analyze opportunities in the market for stakeholders
  • To analyze competitive developments, such as expansions, supply contracts, and acquisitions in the global polypropylene catalyst market
  • To strategically profile the key players and analyze their core competencies in the global polypropylene catalyst market

Both, top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate the size of the polypropylene catalyst market, and to determine the sizes of various other dependent submarkets. The research involved the extensive use of secondary sources, directories, and databases, such as D&B Hoovers, Bloomberg, Chemical Weekly, Factiva, and other government and private websites to identify and collect information useful for a technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the polypropylene catalyst market.

The polypropylene catalyst market is projected to grow from an estimated USD 1.09 million in 2017 to USD 1.46 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2017 to 2022. The polypropylene catalyst is used for different functions across various end-use industries, such as chemical, automotive, packaging, optical, and medical. Polypropylene catalysts improve PP yield, process efficiency, and resin properties. These catalysts are suitable for all the processes used for the manufacture of PP. PP catalysts are used to reduce activation energy during the polymerization process. This accelerates the reaction rate and enables the reaction to proceed even under mild operating conditions. R&D activities for the development of enhanced polypropylene catalyst and increasing production of polypropylene are driving the market for the polypropylene catalyst.

The polypropylene catalyst market is segmented by type, manufacturing process, and region. By type, the Ziegler-Natta catalyst is projected to lead the polypropylene catalyst market during the forecast period, in terms of volume. Ziegler-Natta is the most preferred catalyst type used in the global polymerization industry to produce polypropylene. These catalysts used in the PP manufacturing process influence the yield, molecular weight distribution, selectivity, oligomer content, and tacticity of the manufactured PP. Hence, the Zeigler-Natta catalyst segment is expected to lead the polypropylene catalyst market during the forecast period.

By manufacturing process, the gas phase manufacturing process is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. This process produces high-quality (99% isotactic) PP with minimal residual (atactic) PP. This phase does not require the manual removal of catalyst residues or atactic polypropylene. It is typically a third-generation manufacturing process. Cost-effectiveness and high isotacticity of the PP molecule are the key factors driving the market for the gas phase process.

Polypropylene Catalyst Market

The polypropylene catalyst market in the Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. Increasing demand from end-use industries, such as chemical, automotive, packaging, optical, and medical. 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 PP catalyst market.

Regulations against the use of phthalate based polypropylene catalysts in developed economies are restraining the polypropylene catalyst market globally. Increasing focus on metallocene catalyst based polypropylene production and availability of alternative raw materials for polypropylene production are the opportunities for the growth of the polypropylene catalyst market.

Key players in the polypropylene catalyst market include LyondellBasell Industries (The Netherlands), Clariant (Switzerland), Mitsui Chemicals (Japan), W.R. Grace & Co., (US), and China Petrochemical (China). These companies have adopted various strategies, such as expansions, supply contracts, and acquisitions to enhance their market shares and expand their distribution networks across the globe. These companies majorly engage in expansions to further increase their market shares. For instance, in September 2017, LyondellBasell started its 3rd PP compounding plant in Dalian, China, having a capacity of 20 kilotons per year. The establishment of this plant has helped the company in meeting the growing demand from the automotive industry.
