Polypropylene (PP) resin is one of thermoplastic resins that are developing the fastest, presently, its output has surpassed PE (polyethylene) and PVC (polyvinyl chloride).
In our world, PP is mainly used for producing injection moldings, for which most are turnover boxes for goods. Since it has a low density and good mechanical performance, it is used for accessories for automobiles in great amount. In addition, PP also has a large proportion in fiber and film.
In 1999, the PP consumption in the world is up to 26.50 million tons. China is the third largest consumer of PP
In China, the largest consuming field for PP is woven bags, baling bags and ropes, etc. which accounts for 50~60% of the total PP use. Another important consuming field for PP in China is film, which accounts for 13%, for which, most are BOPP.
China has been being imported PP in great amount, the domestic devices can't meet demand from market. In 1999, the domestic apparent consumption was 4.111 million ton, and the output was 2.647 million tons, the self-supplying rate increased from 57.7% in 1998 to 64.4% in 1999, which is mainly relative with new devices put into operation in 1999.
Among 70 PP producers in China, 23 are under China Petrochemical Group Co., 19 are under China Petroleum & Natural Gas Group Co.. For the 3million ton PP production capacity of China, 66.7% are due to China Petrochemical Group Co., 26.7% due to China Petroleum & Natural Gas Group Co.. For the 2.65million ton PP output of China, 73.2% are due to China Petrochemical Group Co., that due to China Petroleum & Natural Gas Group Co. are 23.0%.
During 2000-2005, several sets of PP devices will be put into operation. It is estimated that in 2005, China's PP production capacity will be up to 4million tons/year, the demand will be 6.20-6.50 million tons. In 2010, the demand will be 8.30-8.40million tons.
It is estimated that in 2005: the proportion of woven products in PP consumption will decrease, and the legging material market will saturate. While the shortage of supply from demand for special material will increase, and the co-polymerizing plastic will become the product with largest shortage in stead of legging material; BOPP film and CPP film will develop rapidly due to rapid development of packaging industry, and the shortage of supply from demand for that will increase further; the material for fiber will have a new developing opportunity. Due to development in material for civil engineering and the demand on it will increase rapidly, the shortage of supply from demand will enlarge.
