Australia polypropylene market was valued at $ 138 million in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% to reach $ 191 million by 2024 on account of rising demand for polypropylene from various industries. Polypropylene is one of the versatile polymers and is often used as the alternative of plastic. It has lightweight and possesses high flexural strength due to which it is finding application in various industries. Moreover, polypropylene comes in various grades (food & medical) and, therefore, suitable to be used in food and medical industries. 

Australia polypropylene market can be segmented based on production technology, application, type and end use industry. On the basis of production technology, the market can be segmented into Spheripol, Unipol, Novolene, Innovene and Montedison. In 2018, Spheripol was the widely used technology for the production of polypropylene. The technology is expected to dominate during forecast period as well as it provides high production efficiency among other technologies. Based on the end use industry, the market can be segmented into packaging, automotive, building & construction, electrical & electronics, among others. In 2018, packaging industry acquired the major share and is poised to grow at an impressive rate during forecast period as well. This is due to the growing utilization of polypropylene for the packaging as an alternative to plastic. Moreover, ban on the use of plastic by the government of Australia is further boosting the growth of polypropylene market in the country. Owing to properties such as lightweight, high mechanical properties and availability at low price, automotive industry is also witnessing its significant adoption. Furthermore, polypropylene has high electric shock resistance, due to this, it is used in the production of capacitors, switch boards, among others.

In terms of regional analysis, the market can be segmented into New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western Australia. New South Wales region dominates Australia polypropylene market owing to presence of several packaging companies in the region.
