Polypropylene is one of the versatile polymers and is often used as the alternative of plastic. It has a lightweight and possesses high flexural strength due to which it is finding application in various industries. Moreover, polypropylene comes in various grades (food & medical) and, therefore, suitable to be used in the food and medical industries.
The Australian polypropylene market can be segmented based on production technology, application, type and end-use industry. On the basis of production technology, the market can be segmented into Spheripol, Unipol, Novolene, Innovene and Montedison. In 2018, Spheripol was the widely used technology for the production of polypropylene. The technology is expected to dominate during the forecast period as well as it provides high production efficiency among other technologies. Based on the end-use industry, the market can be segmented into packaging, automotive, building & construction, electrical & electronics, among others. In 2018, the packaging industry acquired the major share and is poised to grow at an impressive rate during the forecast period as well. This is due to the growing utilization of polypropylene for the packaging as an alternative to plastic. Moreover, the ban on the use of plastic by the government of Australia is further boosting the growth of the polypropylene market in the country. Owing to properties such as lightweight, high mechanical properties and availability at a low price, the automotive industry is also witnessing its significant adoption. Furthermore, polypropylene has high electric shock resistance, due to this, it is used in the production of capacitors, switchboards, among others.
In terms of regional analysis, the market can be segmented into New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia. New South Wales region dominates Australia polypropylene market owing to the presence of several packaging companies in the region.

Both primary, as well as exhaustive secondary research for this study, was performed. Initially, A list of manufacturers across Australia was sourced. Subsequently, the primary research surveys were conducted with the identified companies. While interviewing, the respondents were also enquired about their competitors. Through this technique, the researcher could include the manufacturers which could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. They analyzed the product offerings, distribution channels and the presence of all major manufacturers across Australia.
The market size of the Australian polypropylene market was calculated by using a bottom-up approach, wherein data for various end-user segments were recorded and forecast for the future years. The researcher sourced these values from the industry experts and company representatives and externally validated through analyzing historical data of these product types and applications for getting an appropriate, overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company websites, news articles, press releases, company annual reports, investor presentations and financial reports were also studied.
