The global polypropylene catalyst market has been segmented based on product type, manufacturing process, application, end-use industry, and region.
Polypropylene Catalyst Market
Research Report – Forecast to 2023
Polypropylene Catalyst Market: Overview
Polypropylene catalysts are used to obtain different types of polypropylene based on
stereospecificity, C-monomer distribution, and degree of linearity. The demand of high-grade
polypropylene is increasing in the automotive industry due to the need of improved thickness,
toughness, and other essential characteristics.
Polypropylene catalysts are categorized into Ziegler–Natta (ZN) catalyst, metallocene catalyst,
and others. On the basis of product type, the Ziegler–Natta segment is expected to be the largest
market during the forecast period due to the good morphology control and profitability offered
by these types of catalysts. Metallocenes, are costly but they produce high-grade, stereospecific
polypropylene and a highly defined microstructure. Owing to the relatively low cost and easy
controlled production of polypropylene, the Ziegler-Natta segment is projected to be the largest
and fastest-growing polypropylene catalyst market during the forecast period.
On the basis of manufacturing process, the global polypropylene catalyst market has been
categorized as gas-phase process, bulk phase process, and others. The gas-phase process segment
is projected to be the largest and fastest-growing market owing to the cost-effectiveness of the
process and the purity of polypropylene produced with minimal residue..
By application, the global polypropylene catalyst market has been segmented into films, fibers,
tubes, injection-molded products, and others. The injection-molded products segment is expected
to be the largest during the forecast period as these products are widely used in vials and suture
materials for surgery and in automotive interiors. Due to the growth of the medical and
automotive industries, the injection-molded products segment is projected to be the largest
market during the review period.
Based on end-use industry, the global polypropylene catalyst market has been
