Polypropylene Fibers are used in various end-user industries, such as construction, furniture, healthcare, and agriculture. These industries are growing at a significant pace in developing economies. Healthcare Industry is expected to outpace the other industries in terms of growth in the forecast period, and is expected to provide a significant boost to the polypropylene fibers market.
China, a Significantly Large and Fast Growing Market
China is one of the fastest growing markets in the world, and end-user industries, like healthcare are rapidly growing in this country. China is a leading producer of polypropylene fibers due to the large scale of manufacturing activity in the country. The other end-user industries, like furniture and construction, especially geo-polymers are also favorable for the increase in consumption of polypropylene fibers in the country.
An innovative use for dialysis plastic waste, which is a polypropylene fiber, was proposed in March 2018, by adding it to the concrete. The addition of polypropylene fibers to the concrete increases it strength and construction is one of the major end-users of polypropylene fibers
