 A polyolefin is among a class of polymers produced from a simple olefin known as an alkene . Fro instance, polyethylene is the polyolefin produced by polymerizing the olefin ethylene. It is another common polyolefin which is made from the olefin propylene. Polyolefin has the wide array of property ranging from liquid like to rigid solids, and are primarily determined by their molecular weight and degree of crystallinity. Its degrees of crystallinity is ranges from 0% to 60% or higher. All polyolefins which have commercial importance are poly-alpha-olefin, a polymer made by polymerizing an alpha-olefin. Polyolefins are majorly used in blow moulded or rotationally moulded components. It has also found an wide array of application in packaging of various food products.

Market Dynamics

The global polyolefin catalyst market is majorly driven by increasing demand for various toys, rising demand for the polypropylene and increasing investment in R&D. Increasing pediatrics population has led to increased the demand for the various toys and molding products. During last few years, increasing demand for consumer goods, and various packed products have supported the growth of the market. Demand for consumer goods has raised with rapid economic growth in developing economies and technological innovation that has increased the demand for packaged goods, plastic films,  and building materials. Technological advancement in refinery sector such as high severity fluid catalytic cracking unit has increased its yield by 27-28% in the wake of joining with olefin conversion unit (OCU) and by approximately five times when joined with fluid catalytic cracking (FCC). These factors are expected to further boost polyolefin catalyst market during the forecasted period.

However, strict regulations against phthalate-based catalysts in developed economies may slow the growth of the market.

Market Classification and Overview

The global polyolefin catalyst market is majorly segmented on the basis of types and application. On the basis of types the market is segmented into polypropylene, polyethylene, and others. On the basis of application, the market is segmented into injection molding, blow molding, film, fiber, and others.

Regional Overview

Regionally, polyolefin catalyst market is majorly segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Latin America, Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific commands for the major share in the global market owing to the presence of major manufacturers, huge oppurtinity for the market development, low labor cost and rapid industrialization. China and India is the major share holder in the market.

Europe accounts for the second leading market followed by North America. Europe market is majorly driven by presence of huge funds for research and development, increasing demand for the polyolefin catalyst for the various sectors, and increasing demand from the packaging sector.

North Americas market is expecting a steady growth in coming future. The growth of the market is majorly attributed to increasing demand for the polyethylene from various construction sector. Additionally, presence of huge number of players has supported the growth of the market. However, LAMEA holds the least share in the market owing to the presence of the poor economies especially in Africa region. In near future the market will expect the healthy growth in this region.
