Cracking Catalysts for Propylene Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (CHP, CRP, CIP, MMC, Others), By Application (Steam Cracking, Fluid Catalytic Cracking) And Regional Forecast 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104200 | Status : Ongoing



Propylene is a colorless and flammable gas. The propylene is used as a main building block, which is produced from steam cracking, ethane & liquid feeds, and naphtha reformers. In the production process of propylene, the long-chain hydrocarbons feedstock’s (ethane, naphtha, and gas oils) are split into simpler molecules or light hydrocarbons namely ethylene and propylene, by breaking carbon-carbon bonds. This process is done in the presence of high temperature and pressure. The cracking catalysts for propylene are used to increase the rate of cracking process.

Propylene is majorly used in the production of polypropylene. The polypropylene offers good tensile strength, high surface hardness, and strong chemical resistance. These properties surge the demand for polypropylene in the various application which include packaging, construction, automobile, medical, and electrical & electronics. Furthermore, propylene is utilized for the production of acrylonitrile, methyl methacrylate, oxo-alcohols, acetone, and acrylic acid. The rising demand for these products coupled with the increasing adoption of polypropylene in various applications will fuel the demand for propylene. Thereby provide lucrative market growth to the cracking catalysts for the propylene production.

However, propylene is part of petrochemicals. Hence, fluctuation in the price of petrochemicals will directly impact the overall price of propylene. Hence, this further anticipated to restrict the growth of cracking catalysts for propylene market.
