  • For instance, in December 2023, Pigeon Singapore and LyondellBasell entered a collaboration to promote research and developments in producing sustainable baby nursing bottles. The new pigeon nursing bottles are expected to utilize CirculenRenew polypropylene, aiming to offer 100% pure polypropylene resins.

Moreover, the growing innovations exploring the multiple uses of green polypropylene in various disciplines are introducing new growth opportunities for global bio-based polypropylene. For instance, in January 2024, Srimax announced the launch of bio-based polypropylene for automotive interiors.

However, increasing feedstock scarcity is the major factor causing the biggest problem in producing bio-based polypropylene worldwide. The need for superior infrastructure and technologies to develop these compounds is likely to limit the emergence of new market players in the sector.

Growth Drivers

A Growing Number of Companies are Opting for Sustainable Packaging

The changing global population preferences, rising demand for sustainable packaging solutions, and increasing environmental consciousness are encouraging companies to choose environmentally friendly packaging. This is where bio-based polypropylene is gaining attention. For instance, in October 2023, Lactalis Nestlé introduced a new 30% bio-propylene-based coffee cup. These types of initiatives are expected to boost the demand for bio-based polypropylene in the next few years.

Additionally, in May 2023, Lumene introduced a new bio-based packaging solution for its cosmetic containers, converting polypropylene to recyclable jars. It aims to reduce emissions by 1.5 million jars per year and added labels to lower 60 tons of fossil-based plastics annually.

Increasing Development of Polypropylene Production Facilities

The growing demand for bio-based polypropylene is forcing major market players to expand their production capacity. This trend is likely to increase the supply of polypropylene, which is crucial given its rising use in multiple applications. For instance, in December 2023, Citroniq and Lummus announced their plans to construct four green polypropylene manufacturing centers in the United States.

Restraining Factors

Growing Development of Effective Alternatives to Polypropylene 

The increasing research activities in the market are driving the development of effective chemicals that are proficient in replacing bio-based polypropylene functions. For instance, in October 2023, a study published in Eurekalert developed bio-based re-usable polyesters that have superior tensile strength over polypropylene and polyethylene. Additionally, in November 2023, the VTT Technical Research Centre (Finland) announced the development of cellulose-based food trays, a sustainable alternative to polypropylene.

By Source Analysis

The Lignocellulosic Biomass Segment is Expected to Witness the Highest Growth During the Forecast Period

The lignocellulosic biomass segment will grow rapidly, mainly driven by its abundance. The higher availability of lignocellulosic biomass compared to fossils has increased its use in bio-based polypropylene production. It is cost-effective, driving its incorporation into the bio-based polypropylene market. Furthermore, rising research studies reviewing the pretreatment procedures for bio-based polypropylene are expected to drive polypropylene production in the coming years.

By Application Analysis

The Injection Segment Accounted for the Largest Bio-Based Polypropylene Market Share in 2023

The injection segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023 and is likely to retain its market position throughout the forecast period. This is mainly attributable to the increasing use of injection-molded green polypropylene in automotive interiors and rising company initiatives to develop injection-molded polypropylene. For instance, in September 2023, Sabic, in collaboration with Taghleef Industries, Karydakis IML, & Kotronis Packaging, announced the innovation of mono-polypropylene containers with thin walls by utilizing injection molding procedures for food packaging.

By End-user Analysis

The Automotive Segment Held a Significant Bio-Based Polypropylene Market Revenue Share In 2023

The automotive segment held a significant revenue share in 2023 due to the continuous rise in the innovation of new-model automobiles, necessitating the demand for lightweight parts. The ongoing transition towards green mobility is expected to boost its adoption rate. In addition, the increasing integration of sustainable chemical compounds into manufacturing activities will create demand for green polypropylene in the future.
