Propylene terpolymer Market: Introduction
The global propylene terpolymer market is expected to witness lucrative growth in the coming future due to its extensive use in the automotive industry. Propylene terpolymer is ethylene-propylene terpolymer along with diene, such as dicyclopentane diene, hexadiene, ethylene norborene, etc. It is generally produced by a solution or suspension process using Ziegler-Natta catalyst. The other method used for the production of propylene terpolymer is Metallocene Catalyst Technology, which was proposed by Dupont Dow. Propylene terpolymer is used in a wide range of applications including automotive, building & construction, lubricant, adhesive & sealant, packaging and electrical housing. The primary application for the growth of global propylene terpolymer market is its use as ethylene-propylene-diene monomer (EPDM) rubber. The global propylene terpolymer market is estimated to have a healthy CAGR in the coming future due to its increasing use in the automobile industry.
Propylene terpolymer Market: Market Dynamics
The key growth driving factor for the global Propylene terpolymer market is its use in the automotive industry. In the automobile industry, the propylene terpolymer is majorly used in the form of ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber, which is extensively used in tires & tube application. Furthermore, due to its exceptional properties of low seal initiation temperature, high hot tack, high-speed processing and excellent optics, propylene terpolymer is widely used in packaging application. It is commonly used in BOPP films, lamination films, barrier film, food packaging film and bags & pouches, amongst others. Also, the growth of propylene terpolymer is directly affected by the volatility in crude oil prices. This is because key raw material propylene is produced as a by-product in the ethylene cracking process. Industry shifts, such as an increase in demand due to the rising middle-class population in Asia, stranded oil & gas due to shale phenomena, and increased investments in capacity have further complicated the raw material pricing and distribution. Furthermore, the massive demand for bio-based products is likely to bring lucrative opportunities for propylene terpolymer market in the forecast period.
