Research and Markets: Increasing Demand for Polypropylene in a Chinese Market
Tuesday March 22, 5:30 am ET

DUBLIN, Ireland, March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( ) has announced the addition of Chinese Markets for Polypropylene to their offering.

China's demand for polypropylene has grown at a fast pace in the past decade. In the next five years, both production and demand will continue to grow.

China's two-decade high economic growth has spurred the rapidly rising consumption of polypropylene. Since 1990, the country's polypropylene consumption has grown 17.8% annually. In 2000, the consumption of polypropylene increased to 6.1 million metric tons and Chinese domestic production reached 3.1 million metric tons. China's demand for polypropylene is forecast to advance to 9.5 million metric tons by the year 2005. As demand advances at a rapid pace, China strives to increase polypropylene output, which is forecast to rise to 9.5 million metric tons by the year 2010. Despite new facility construction and capacity expansions, China's polypropylene demand will continue to outstrip the supply. The country will continue to depend upon polypropylene imports throughout the next century.

This new study examines China's economic trends, investment environment, industry development, supply and demand, industry capacity, industry structure, marketing channels and major industry participants. Historical data (1994, 1999 and 2004) and long-term forecasts through 2009 and 2014 are presented. Major producers in China are also profiled in the producer directory.

Below are the topics mentioned and are discussed in more detail inside the study:
