Polypropylene Cables – Introduction
Polypropylene cables are used for insulation and jacketing of power and telecommunication cables. These cables are commonly used in the packaging industry. Polypropylene is considered the steel of plastics due to its versatility; it can be modified in countless ways to suit multiple applications. Due to its excellent electrical and thermal performance as well as environmentally friendly and recyclable cable insulation material, demand for the polypropylene cabled has increased.

Global Polypropylene Cables Market – Dynamics
The growth of the chemical and plastic industries has positively affected the market for polypropylene cables. Rise in demand for advanced electronic devices and increase in usage of polypropylene cables in various audio equipment are significant factors driving the polypropylene cables market. Polypropylene cables are widely used with electronic components such as wires and audio equipment. Nanodoping can efficiently enhance electrical, thermal, and mechanical characteristics of polypropylene, which offers advanced technique for solving temperature issues in HVDC cable insulation. Polypropylene has a comparatively elevated melting point as compared to polyethylene. Thus, it is used in wires that are required in high temperatures. Moreover, it has greater breakdown power and volume resistivity, which is of importance for raising a cable's working voltage level. Polypropylene cables, however, are brittle and rigid, and possess low heat resistance and heat conductivity. In addition, polypropylene has a strong tensile strength and hence, it can resist 4,800 psi in heavy loads. Polypropylene also has low density compared to other plastics.
Polypropylene cables are commonly used in automotive parts due to its low price, excellent mechanical characteristics, and moldability. Battery cases and trays, bumpers, fender liners, interior trim, instrument boards, and door trims are its main application areas. Other main characteristics of automotive applications of polypropylene cable include low linear thermal expansion coefficient and particular gravity, high chemical strength, and processability. North America is one of the largest markets for industrial automation.
