Global Polypropylene Copolymer Market Driven by Increasing Applications and Flourishing End-Use Industries

The global polypropylene copolymer market has been witnessing a positive growth owing to its increasing applications in industries such as building and construction, healthcare, packaging, plastics, textiles, personal care and hygiene, etc.



The latest report by IMARC Group titled, “Polypropylene Copolymer Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global polypropylene copolymer market reached a volume of around 23 Million Tons in 2016, growing at a CAGR of around 4% during 2009-2016. Polypropylene copolymer is a type of thermoplastic material which is formed by the polymerization of propylene in the presence of a catalyst and a monomer. It is a colorless, translucent to transparent solid with a glossy surface, and can melt and flow when subjected to increase in temperatures and pressures. Polypropylene copolymer is also softer than other thermoplastics with better impact strength. It is tough, durable, and resistant to chemicals, scratches and stress cracking. Additionally, polypropylene copolymer has a low moisture absorption rate and the ability to be processed via injection molding and extrusion.
