Polypropylene Plastics Demand and Market Analysis - North America 2011
Plastics Market Research Limited, September 2011, Pages: 35
This report provides a detailed analysis of the Polypropylene Market in North America including an analysis of demand by major end-use segment from 2003 - 2010, and a forecast of demand by end-use to 2015. Major end-uses include injection molding, film, sheet, fiber, and blow molding.
A summary of major Polypropylene (PP) resin producers and their estimated PP production capacity in North America is provided as well as a detailed profile of each leading PP manufacture.
Factors and trends impacting future demand for polypropylene by end-use segment are outlined. Key issues causing Pollypropylene's declining cost competitiveness versus some other polymers in North America are discussed. These factors are also leading to a lower growth outlook for the polymer than has historically been the case.
