Polypropylene (PP) is the most popular thermoplastic in use today, and still one of the fastest growing. Demand for PP continues to grow thanks to its adaptability with fillers, its ability to mimic higher-priced engineering resin properties at lower cost and the possibility to downsize and thinwall applications. Consumption is growing at 7.6%/year worldwide, with strongest demand coming from developing markets in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The utilisation of PP is growing in blow moulding, housewares, and in automotive bumper fascia. Metallocene catalyst technology is also expected to take it further. Moulding technologies include injection moulding, reaction injection moulding, blow moulding, rotational moulding and compression moulding.
