Homo Polypropylene or polypropylene (PP) homopolymer is widely used in the plastic processing industry to make various products for household, automotive, electrical, electronics, packaging, personal care, medical, and other applications. PP homopolymer offers a high strength to weight ratio and provides good chemical resistance and weldability. Owing to its huge application base, PP homopolymer is a large volume commodity material. The global consumption of PP homopolymer was pegged at 42.0 million metric tonnes in 2015. Sales revenue of the global PP homopolymer market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period (2016–2026).

Increasing consumption of PP homopolymer in the packaging industry and a high growth of the retail sector likely to boost market growth

Increasing consumption of PP homopolymer in the packaging industry is one of the key factors driving its demand in the global market. Characteristics such as high physical strength and chemical resistance makes PP homopolymer a material of choice for packaging applications. With the rise of the retail and e-commerce sectors, demand for high end packaging is increasing, which in turn is expected to drive the demand for PP homopolymer across the globe. In order to comply with various government and environmental regulations, automobile manufacturers around the world are focussed on decreasing carbon emissions from vehicles and PP homopolymer plays a key role here. Use of PP homopolymer in automotive applications leads to reduced weight of the vehicle, consequently increasing its fuel efficiency. In order to capitalise on the opportunities in the market, market players are introducing new grades of PP homopolymer for various new applications to increase their market share in the global market.

However, in the last few years, automobile OEMs have been switching from PP homopolymer to PP copolymer and aluminium for manufacturing specific vehicle parts as PP copolymer and aluminium provide better toughness and durability than PP homopolymer. This is likely to restrict the growth of the global PP homopolymer market over the forecast period.
