World Analysis - Polypropylene

IHS Chemical World Analysis - Polypropylene is an annual study that covers historical trends and forecasts for polypropylene supply/demand fundamentals over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast). Clients receive detailed data on polypropylene and major derivatives in 10 geographic regions with ten-year market forecasts.

The global polypropylene (PP) market is the second largest volume polymer business in the world today making up 25% of global polymer demand. Global demand growth continues to be led by emerging economies, especially China where major investments in new capacity attempt to improve China’s self-sufficiency. Unconventional low cost feedstocks are driving new capacity investment in North America (shale gas) and China (coal) and will have significant effects on future global trade and regional competitiveness. Less competitive regions will have to adapt through supply rationalizations or with new product and process innovations.

IHS Chemical World Analysis - Polypropylene examines historical trends and long term projections for supply/demand, production, capacity, and trade of the global polypropylene industry over a 16-year period (five-year history, base year, ten-year forecast).

Included with the IHS Chemical World Analysis - Polypropylene is 12-month’s access to IHS Chemical’s online capacity and supply/demand databases, with updates to the capacity database as they occur and one update to the supply/demand database. The study’s conclusions, with text and graphs, are provided online; as are the Excel files for the supply/demand flat file and the regional supply/demand graphs.
