Global Polypropylene Carbonate (PPC) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Polypropylene Carbonate (PPC) is a type of thermoplastic polymer. It is used in a variety of applications, including as a component in engineering plastics and coatings.

Ordinary PPC:

Ordinary PPC is a low-grade carbonate that occurs in natural gas and petroleum. It has been used as a feedstock for the production of higher grades of polypropylene carbonate (PPC) owing to its high availability, low cost, and easy accessibility. The global demand for PPC has witnessed substantial growth over the past few years on account of increasing application scope in end-use industries such as automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics packaging and consumer goods among others.

Modified PPC:

Modified PPC is a type of propylene carbonate (PCC) with an additional functional group or groups. It can be used as a direct substitute for conventional PCC in various applications such as films, fibers, and coatings. Modified PPC has the same molecular weight and chemical properties as conventional PCC; however, it differs in terms of its physical properties such as flow rate and particle size.

Application Insights:

Ceramic industry was the largest application segment in 2016 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Ceramics have a wide range of applications including building & construction, automotive & transportation, electronics, appliances, kitchenware and medical ware. The increasing demand for ceramic tiles in residential as well as commercial buildings on account of their properties such as durability and resistance towards stains is projected to boost product consumption over the next eight years.

PPC used as biodegradable plastics can be recycled multiple times without losing its performance characteristics owing to its high molecular weight (MW). It has been observed that 80% of a polypropylene carbonate-based plastic can be regenerated by recycling it seven times which eventually results into savings on disposal costs.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region is projected to account for a significant share of the overall revenue by 2030 owing to increasing product demand from various end-use industries, such as construction, automotive, packaging, and electrical & electronics.

The ceramic industry in Asia Pacific has witnessed an upsurge due to rapid industrialization coupled with growing consumer disposable income levels. This factor has led manufacturers of PPC products for ceramics/glass/mineral processing to increase their production capacities at affordable costs across emerging economies such as China and India. In addition, rising investments by multinational companies are anticipated to boost regional product demand over the next eight years.

Europe was estimated as being worth USD X billion in 2016.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from end-use industries such as automotive and construction owing to its properties such as lightweight, high strength, and durability.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of PPC over traditional materials in various applications is expected to boost the market growth.
  • Growing investments by key players in research and development activities for product innovation is projected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
  • Stringent government regulations for reducing environmental pollution are likely to create opportunities for PPC manufacturers in the near future.
