Polypropylene copolymer is a type of plastic formed by the polymerization of propylene in the presence of a catalyst and a monomer. It is a colourless, translucent to transparent solid with a glossy surface and some exceptional properties like low specific gravity, high stiffness and high-temperature resistance to chemicals, good process ability via injection moulding and extrusion, low moisture absorption rate, etc. It is one of the most versatile thermoplastic polymers and finds applications in packaging, automotive, injection moulding, thermoforming, blow moulding etc. According to this research’s recently published report titled “Polypropylene Copolymer Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the global polypropylene copolymer market is currently being driven by an increasing demand for these polymers in packaging, electrical and automotive industries. According to the report, this market has grown at a CAGR of 4% during 2010-2017.
