Global Polypropylene Catalyst Market Size, Trends, and Analysis- Forecasts To 2026 By Type (Metallocene, Ziegler-Natta, Others), By Manufacturing Process (Bulk Process, Gas Phase, Others), By Region (North America, Asia Pacific, CSA, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa); End-User Landscape, Company Market Share Analysis & Competitor Analysis
Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer that is produced with the help of a catalyst by polymerizing the monomer propylene. It is a strong and crystalline thermoplastic that is made of polypropylene catalysts that are commonly used in everyday products, such as packaging trays, household goods, battery cases, and medical devices, among others. Growing investments in R&D activities for specialty polypropylene development and increasing polypropylene production are expected to fuel the market growth during the forthcoming years. Furthermore, the increasing production of protective masks and the increasing production of cars has boosted market growth from 2021 to 2026.
Based on the type, the market is segregated into metallocene, Ziegler Natta, and others. The Ziegler-Natta type will be the market's largest shareholder. Natta's Ziegler-catalysts provide organic inhibitors, including aromatic acid esters and ethers, which use TiCl4 as an active component and MgCl2 as support. It provides polypropylene with a long isotactic series and is larger than other available alternatives. The segmental growth is attributed due to its low cost as compared to metallocene.
The division of the market according to the outlook of the manufacturing process is the bulk phase and gas phase, others. In 2019, the largest market share was the gas phase in terms of sales. The major considerations driving the demand for the gas phase process are its cost-effectiveness and high isotacticity of the PP molecule.
The Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth during 2021-2026. Growing numerous plants for the production of polypropylene and increasing investment in the shale gas phase are expected to accelerate the region's growth over the projected timeframe. With the increasing population of emerging economies, the demand for polypropylene catalysts has increased. China is projected to be the dominant producer and user of polypropylene due to the availability of cheap labor, the abundant amount of raw materials, and substantial growth in the packaging and automotive industries.
The main players competing in this market are Lyondell Basell Industries, Clariant, China Petrochemical Corporation, Sumitomo Chemicals, Japan Polypropylene Corporation, W.R. Grace, Mitsui Chemicals, Evonik, Toho Titanium, and INEOS, among others.
