Published Date: April 12, 2017 Authors: Kunal Ahuja, Kritika Mamtani
Biobased polypropylene (PP) Market size is set to exceed USD 40 million by 2022; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Growing light weight plastic demand to improve automobile fuel efficiency and thereby decreasing overall weight should drive industry growth. Government regulation towards usage of lightweight material in vehicles to reduce fuel consumption should drive biobased PP market size. It is also used in medical technology, wind turbines and pressure vessels application, which will further stimulate product demand.
Strict government regulations by EU and EPA to reduce carbon footprints in the atmosphere should boost bio PP market size. PLA & bio PET is used as substitute product along with shale gas production from hydraulic fracturing can hinder industry growth.
Bio PP market size from injection applications should register highest gains to register above USD 20 million at the end of forecast period. Increasing usage of injection molded parts in packaging, automotive, electronics, and construction applications may fuel product demand.
Europe bio PP market size, led by increasing product adoption in Germany, UK, and France, should register over 6% gains by 2022. Favorable government initiatives driving bioplastics market and presence of automobile sectors should drive regional industry growth.
