However, the demand for polypropylene in the healthcare sector kept the business afloat. For instance, as per November 2020 news by LyondellBasell, the company launched a new polypropylene grade in Europe which was helpful in the production of face masks. Such commercialization of polypropylene not only helped the target market to survive but thrive during the pandemic. Going forward, the synthetic and bio-based polypropylene market is expected to witness massive growth owing to the expansion in multiple end-use industries such as automotive, packaging, construction, etc.

Synthetic and Bio Based Polypropylene Market – By Application

The injection molding application segment dominated the synthetic and bio-based polypropylene market in 2021 and is growing at a CAGR of 7.5% in the forecast period. Polypropylene is extensively used in injection molding applications for manufacturing various products and components in multiple sectors like automotive, construction, packaging, etc. Owing to this, injection molding is a popular choice among manufacturers. For instance, in December 2020, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), a market leader in the chemicals industry, joined hands with Unilever and Greiner Packaging to develop a new packaging container using polypropylene through injection molding. Similarly, in November 2020, LyondellBasell, one of the largest chemical companies, joined hands with REHAU and Eschmann Textures to develop a physically foamed rear lower trim automotive part with the help of polypropylene material through injection molding. Such high implementation of injection molding applications in various industries will drive the synthetic and bio-based polypropylene market’s growth in the forecast period. Textile and films application will drive the market’s growth significantly in the forecast period.

Synthetic and Bio Based Polypropylene Market Challenges

Fluctuation in the price of polypropylene might hamper the market’s growth

The fluctuation in polypropylene price might slow down the growth of the synthetic and bio-based polypropylene market in the forecast period. Polypropylene is derived from petroleum and the price of petroleum has gone down amid the pandemic, affecting the price of polypropylene. Lack of commercial movement owing to logistics and cross-border restrictions resulted in a historic drop in the petroleum price. Moreover, the oil war price between Russia and Saudi Arabia further affected the petroleum price. As per data by ourworldindata.org, the price of crude oil in 2017 stood at US$ 54.19 per barrel which surged to US$ 64.21 per barrel in 2019. Later, in 2020, the oil price again dropped to US$ 41.84 per barrel. Such lowered demand for crude oil fluctuated petroleum price, ultimately fluctuating the price of polypropylene, and this, in turn, might hinder the growth of the synthetic and bio-based polypropylene market’s growth in the forecast period.
