Bio-based Polypropylene Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Application (Textile, Injection Molding, Films, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102758 | Status : Ongoing



Bio-based polypropyleneis a polymer derived from renewable sources such as sugarcane, corn, vegetable fats, oils, and other biomass sources. Bio-based polyproplene exhibits properties similar to synthetic polyproplene. Owing to factors such as rise in demand for automobiles, and increasing emphasis of consumers on the use of eco-friendly bio products has led to the growth in the bio-based polypropylene market. Regulations from the government and various organisations has boosted the consumption of bio-based polypropylene.

The market for bio-based polypropylene is driven due to the rising demand from automotive industry. The need of automotive manufacturers to reduce the weight of vehicles to reduce fuel consumption and minimize greenhouse gas emission has led to the adoption of bio-polypropylene in the vehicles. Bio-based polypropylene is a versatile material that offers properties similar to metals and is used to replace them. Hence, the rising automotive industry will drive the demand for bio-based polypropylene.

Key Market Driver -

Rising demand for bio-based polypropylene from automotive industry.

Key Market Restraint -

Cost of production of bio-based polypropylene.

The production cost of bio-based polypropylene is expected to act as a market restraint for the global bio-based polypropylene market. Bio-based polypropylene can be produced from various natural sources but the manufacturing cost of bio-polypropylene is expensive compared to that of synthetic polypropylene. Hence, many manufacturers hesitate to adopt the production of bio-based polypropylene, thereby restraining the market.
