Propylene Market to Grow at CAGR of 5.65 %: Global Market Opportunities, Threats Faced by the Key Vendors Analysis and Forecast 2017-2021

Business, Industry News 0 Comment

Propylene market report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors. The report provides actionable intelligence on major factors influencing the Propylene market (drivers, opportunities, industry specific challenges, and other critical issues) along with the Propylene market size of various segments.

Propylene is produced through traditional processes like steam cracking and fluid catalytic cracking (FCC). It is obtained as a byproduct of the steam cracking process of natural gas liquids and naphtha that is used for the production ethylene and from gasoline-producing refinery through the FCC process. Propylene and its derivatives are used in industries such as construction, automotive, furniture, decorative molding, and others.

Propylene Market Drivers, Challenges and Trends: –

Market Driver: – Increase in demand for polyurethane will be a key driver for market growth. polyurethanes are made from propylene oxide and are used in sealants, thermal insulators, and flooring materials that are used in industries like packaging, automotive, footwear, furniture, and construction.

Market Challenge: – Propylene is derived from heavy feedstocks, which is derived from crude oil. thus, the price of propylene depends on global crude oil prices. vendors face challenges in areas such as the supply of raw materials, fluctuation in demand, and pricing volatility. environmental concerns regarding the production of propylene derivatives of crude oil will lead to a decline in their consumption. oil price fluctuation affects the production costs for many chemicals that constitute the downstream segment for petrochemicals. a continued oil price recovery will lead to the use of naphtha instead of ethane as a feedstock. more propylene can be produced from naphtha-based steam cracking process. hence, propylene producers in economies such as china will increase the use of this method. higher grades of ethylene can be produced from naphtha steam cracking, which also leads to the production of large amounts of propylene.

Market trend: – Growing preference for sustainable products will be a key trend for market growth. According to a European Commission survey, 80% of the consumers in Europe prefer buying products that have minimal impact on the environment. Bio-polypropylene is already used extensively as a packaging material for making beverage bottle closures. Due to the growing consumer inclination toward bio-based products, food and beverage manufacturers are increasingly focusing on using bio-polypropylene as a packaging material. It is lightweight and has less wall-thickness capabilities, which helps in producing more finished goods using less raw materials
