The study states that the Polypropylene industry is witnessing emergence of new PP companies, and the change of ownership of the existing players. Most of the new players are private owned companies that are headquartered in the Middle East, particularly in Saudi Arabia. Global capacity utilization rate is expected to be as high as 80%. Large numbers of PP plants owned by the major players are recording 100% capacity utilization rates, with their entire stocks being sold out. Europe and the US are demonstrating impressive capacity utilizations. Increasing numbers of industry players are expanding their production capacities to meet the augmenting demand for PP resin. However, on the other hand, as the demand for propylene is outstripping gasoline demand, supply of propylene monomer is becoming tighter by the day. Nevertheless, plans are underway to start on-purpose production of propylene in future. China continues to be the significant importer of polypropylene and drive the market for PP along with India. Global demand for PP is expected to increase steadily in the near future, making the resin a leading segment in the total polyolefins market. The growth can be tied up to the increasing applications in food packaging and auto component markets.
