Oct 18, 2021 08:11

Market Forecast

Global Expanded Polypropylene Market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period and reach USD 2.1 Million in value by 2027.Expanded polypropylene is a closed bead cell of polypropylene with exceptional physical properties that include excellent energy absorption, durability, thermal insulation, high strength to weight ratio, good chemical resistance, and recyclability.

Production Outlook

The global production of Expanded Polypropylene Market is around 80 million tons in 2018 with China holding around 25% of global production. Further, a rise in polypropylene capacities is witnessed in Russia over the past few years. However, the expanding capacities of polypropylene has led to the oversupply affecting the pricing of the polypropylene globally.


By Density

  • This segment is further segmented into low density, high density, and porous PP.
  • The low density expanded polypropylene is expected to witness a healthy growth in the forecast period. This is attributed to the increased usage of low density expanded polypropylene in the packaging industry. It offers excellent thermal insulation which makes it a suitable material for food & beverage and industrial packaging.
  • High density expanded polypropylene accounted for the largest market share in 2019 on account of its extensive usage in the automobile industry. It offers excellent stability, durability, load-bearing strength, and high strength to weight ratio which increases the usage of high density expanded polypropylene in the automotive, aerospace and marine sector.
  • Porous PP is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the assessment period. This is attributed to the exceptional properties offered by porous PP such as high shock absorption, noise, and vibration reduction. It is widely used in consumer products such as electronic packaging, and ventilation systems.
