Polypropylene Markets in the EU 2022

Polypropylene Markets in the EU 2022

Published: March 2022

AMI Consulting published its latest comprehensive report of the European market for polypropylene in March 2022.  The study is a complete analysis of the market and updates AMI Consulting’s prior work in 2009, 2012 and 2017. AMI has over 30 years of experience covering the European polypropylene market.

The study gathered consumption details on a site-by-site basis and from these building blocks create an analysis of existing demand (bottom-up). However, we also gathered data on total market size from public sources and interviews (top-down). The interview programme questions users on demand drivers within their specific application areas.  The report also draws on the findings of AMI Consulting's other in-depth reports and consultancy projects on key markets for PP including rigid and flexible packaging sectors, pipes, PP compounds and injection moulding. 

Given continued market volatility, the hunt for sustainability, the conflict in Ukraine, logistics challenges, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is essential that PP suppliers get a balanced view of the market and its prospects with clear evidential analysis. The report splits demand by process, by detailed application and by country to give a granular view of where the market is strongest and where growth is faltering.

Technical developments mean suppliers are capable of building new and speciality properties, but what is the role and potential for these attributes? Producers need to understand drivers, application by application, and to have a strong sense of how to identify unmet needs. In this study AMI Consulting provides a multi-polymer perspective, by application-segment, and discusses the potential for PP to displace alternative polymers (and vice versa).
