Homopolymer bifurcation has dominated the types segment of the polypropylene market in the past. The higher strength-to-weight ratio of homopolymers makes them stronger and more rigid than polypropylene copolymers. Other advantages of homopolymers are high tolerance to chemical exposure and extreme temperatures, high thermoforming performance and good weldability.

In the coming years, the injection molding category will hold the largest share of value in the polypropylene market, depending on the application. Polypropylene’s mass density, which is among the lowest of all plastics, allows it to be injection molded, used in housewares, recreational vehicle (RV) products, and automotive and marine parts.

Packaging has been the most important category in the polypropylene market historically, and will continue to be so over this decade, under segmentation by end use. The strength of this polymer allows it to be used for containers that must be in direct contact with food. Other properties of plastic that make it ideal for packaging purposes are high clarity, heat resistance and recyclability, as well as good aesthetics.
