Global Polyolefin Catalyst Market: Overview
A polyolefin is a class of polymers produced from a simple olefin, known as an alkene. For instance, polyethylene is the polyolefin produced by polymerizing olefin ethylene. Polyethylene is another common polyolefin that is made from olefin propylene. Polyolefin has the wide range of properties, and are primarily determined by their molecular weight and degree of crystallinity. Its degrees of crystallinity ranges from 0% to 60% or higher. Polyolefin are majorly utilized in blow molded or rotationally molded components. They are also employed in the packaging of various food products.
Demand for consumer goods is increasing rapidly in emerging economies. Furthermore, technological innovation has fueled the demand for plastic films, packaged goods, and building materials. Technological advancements in the refinery sector as well like high severity fluid catalytic cracking unit have increased yield by 27% to 28% after combining with olefin conversion unit and by around five times when combined with fluid catalytic cracking. These factors are expected to drive the polyolefin catalyst market. However, high manufacturing cost and volatility in prices of precious metals are restraining the market.
Global Polyolefin Catalyst Market: Key Segments
The global polyolefin catalyst market can be segmented based on type, end-user, and region. In terms of type, the market can be classified into Ziegler Natta, metallocene, and peroxide initiators. The Ziegler Natta segment dominated the polyolefin catalyst market primarily, as it is cost-effective and can be easily controlled for the production of thermoplastic polyolefin such as polypropylene. Metallocene types are largely utilized for custom designed products, and they provide enhanced impact strength and toughness. These type of polyolefin catalyst used in the manufacture of value added and high price polymers.
Based on end-user, the polyolefin catalyst market can be split into automobile, coatings, construction, packaging, and pharmaceutical. The automobile segment dominated the global polyolefin catalyst market. The segment is estimated to expand at a notable CAGR during the forecast period. Polyolefin catalyst are used in the manufacture of auto parts such as bumpers, seats, lighting, and dashboard. Construction is another major end-user segment of the market.
