Global Polypropylene Market Capacity to see 5.8% CAGR to 2018 Says a New Research Report Available with MarketOptimizer.org

July 24, 2014

DALLAS, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

“Global Demand, Capacity and Prices for Polypropylene – End-Use Sectors in
Asia-Pacific to Drive Growth” 2014 market research report says worldwide polypropylene
capacity increased at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.2% from 2003, reaching 65
million tons per year (mmty) in 2013, and is expected to continue rising to 86 mmty by
2018, at a slightly higher CAGR of 5.8%. It forecasts China and Russia to be the leading
contributors to future polypropylene capacity increases, and will account for a combined
45% of global additions over the next five years. Complete report is available at

.

As per the managing analyst covering downstream oil & gas for the publishing team of
this research, a demand-side push is driving additional capacity in China, forcing it to
produce more domestic polypropylene. China will lead new global polypropylene capacity
increases over the next five years, as its goal of self-sufficiency drives 7.48 mmty of
additions, of which 97.6% will come from new plants and the remainder from the expansion
of existing facilities.

The Global Demand, Capacity and Prices for Polypropylene – End-Use Sectors in
Asia-Pacific to Drive Growth research also forecasts that China will account for 62.4% and
35.5% of planned Asian and global capacity additions by 2018, respectively. Russia will be
the second largest contributor to growth, mainly due to the country’s recent
diversification into the petrochemicals sector, which has seen substantial investment in
bulk polymer industries, such as polyethylene and polypropylene. Until 2012, Russia’s
polypropylene capacity was only 0.65 mmty, but this increased to 1.33 mmty in 2013 and is
further expected to reach approximately 3.48 mmty by 2018, with all additions coming from
new plants. Order a copy of this report at

This report also states that Venezuela and India will be the respective third and
fourth largest contributors to capacity increases over the next five years, with both
countries investing in the polypropylene sector to cater to the domestic market and
replace imports. In the next five years, China and India are likely to add polypropylene
capacity of 7.48 million tons per year (mmty) and 1.675 mmty respectively. Overall,
polypropylene capacity in Asia-Pacific is expected to increase by around 12 mmty by 2018.

Global Propylene Industry – On-Purpose Technologies to Gain Prominence is another
market research report of 57 pages and published in April 2014. The report gives the
historic and forecast, market size, demand and production figures by region. It covers all
five regions that include Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, South America, and Middle
East and Africa. It says the global propylene industry is witnessing a change in the
feedstock scenario in various parts of the world. In North America, propylene supply from
steam crackers is expected to decrease in coming years as abundant and inexpensive natural
gas liquids (NGLs) feedstock form shale gas is slowly replacing heavy feedstock in steam
crackers. Persistently high crude oil price is also discouraging the use of naphtha China
and Europe. To cope with the changing feedstock scenario and high crude oil prices many
producers are embracing on-purpose propylene technologies which produce high quantities of
propylene by using alternative feedstocks such as NGLs and coal. Use of these technologies
is being witnessed mostly in Asia-Pacific and North America. In Asia-Pacific, more than
50% of new capacity will come from on-purpose technologies while in North America, 100% of
the new capacity will come from on-purpose technologies. With the increasing demand for
propylene and uncertainty of propylene supply from stream crackers, the use of on-purpose
technology will continue to increase in the future. Complete report is available at

Global Polyethylene Industry – Emerging Markets in Asia-Pacific to Drive Modest Growth
is a 2014 market research report that says global polyethylene industry has witnessed a
period of low growth in the last two years due to a slowdown in China and India, which
showed strong demand in the past decade and proved themselves to be the growth engine of
the global polyethylene industry. Russia has emerged as another growing market for
polyethylene with a twofold increase in demand volume in the last decade. It is also
expected to show a strong demand growth rate over the next five years. The Middle East and
Africa has seen the fastest pace of production in the last decade. In terms of absolute
change in production, Asia-Pacific continues to lead the market with an increase in
production from 16.77 mmty in 2003 to 27.703 mmty in 2013, at Compound Annual Growth Rate
(CAGR) of 5.1% in the last decade. New plants in China and India will continue to drive
production in the region to 35.72 mmty in 2018. Complete report is available at
