Polypropylene Random Copolymer Market to exceed $9bn by 2024
Published Date: January 6, 2017 Authors: Kiran Pulidindi, Hemant Pandey
Polypropylene Random Copolymer Market size is poised to exceed USD 9 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Increasing product application in food containers and vessels will stimulate global polypropylene random copolymer market growth; being widely preferred in food storage applications mainly due to its high impact resistance, good optical and flexibility properties. It also offers added characteristics including transparency, gloss, optimum thermal resistance and light weight which makes it desirable to find application across storage vessels and containers.
Furthermore, the product also aids in maintaining organoleptic food characteristics. In 2015, the overall food containers business generated revenue close to USD 110 billion and is forecast to exceed USD 175 billion by 2024. Rising consumer spending power subsequently propels the packed food demand, which will reflect across polypropylene random copolymer market as well.
Shifting focus towards artistic labelling and packaging accompanied with providing food durability is forecast to fuel demand. Rising dual income nuclear families in BRIC nations, resulting in increasing consumer disposable income will drive industry growth. Furthermore, significant industrial growth in Asia Pacific and Latin America will favor industry growth.
Major raw materials include naphtha and ethylene; wavering crude oil prices across the globe is likely to hamper polypropylene random copolymer market price trend. For instance, naphtha price in 2009 was approximately USD 500/ton, drastically crossing USD 900/ton in 2010. Rising beverages including fruit juices, flavored water and milk demand globally will create new growth avenues for across packaging applications. Furthermore, the product possesses enormous potential for its use as an alternative to conventional packing material such as PET and glass. This may create new growth opportunities for the polypropylene random copolymer market.
