Report Scope:

This report covers global markets for the metallocene-catalyzed versions of the following resins/elastomers: LLDPE, HDPE, VLDPE, polypropylene, and EPDM, along with the more recently introduced variants known as polyolefin plastomers (POPs) and polyolefin elastomers (POEs). Important competitive non-metallocene-based resins will also be covered.

Major global producers are covered in terms of key trade-named products. Applications of metallocene resins/elastomers will be covered, including films used in non-food packaging, non-packaging films, consumer/industrial packaging, flexible food packaging, rigid food packaging, shrink/stretch films, wire/cable, hose/tubing, polymer modification, medical products and automotive products.

Metallocene resin/elastomer producers, including specific trade named products, will be covered along with up-to-date information on joint ventures, licensing arrangements, new technologies, and patents.

Report Includes:

  • 30 data tables and 11 additional tables
  • A detailed overview and industry analysis of the global market for metallocene-catalyzed resins and elastomers
  • Analyses of global market trends with data from 2016 and 2017, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2022
  • Characterization and quantification of metallocene materials and segmentation of the market by type, application, end-user industries etc.
  • Elaboration on the influence of government regulations, current technology, and the economic factors that are and will shape the marketplace
  • Identification of end-use markets and materials that would be replaced by metallocene polymers
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players in the market, including Borealis AG, Dow Chemical Corp., ExxonMobil Chemical Company, Japan Polychem Corp., and Total Petrochemicals
