Report Outlook

The southeast asia modified polypropylene market size was valued at USD 1.66 billion in 2023. The market is anticipated to grow from USD 1.78 billion in 2024 to USD 3.19 billion by 2032, exhibiting the CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period.

Market Overview

Rising demand for efficient and sustainable packaging equipment is positively fueling the demand for modified polypropylene in Southeast Asia. This is attributable to the superior performance of modified propylene, such as its lightweight, barrier potential, rigidity, and longevity, which are driving its adoption in the packaging of goods, including food and beverage, consumer utilities, and many more. According to the data published by the World Economic Forum, the Philippines and Malaysia are the top two countries in global e-commerce retail growth, constituting 25% and 23%, respectively. This trend is exhibiting potential demand for modified propylene in the marketplace.

Furthermore, the growing research studies focusing on reviewing the use of modified polypropylene are expected to drive new growth potential in the study period.

  • For instance, a 2023 study published in MDPI focused on the development of post-consumer recycled flexible polypropylene (PCPP) with enhanced thermal stability and processability. The study concluded that it has improved processability, crystallinity, and thermal stability.

Moreover, the ongoing growth of automotive vehicle use in the region, specifically Singapore, with the significant uptick in disposable income among the population driven by increasing economic activities, is anticipated to propel demand for modified polypropylene in the foreseeable future.

Growth Drivers

Rising regularity challenges in the marketplace

With the growing number of stringent regulations on polymer usage driven by sustainability as a major concern, there will be enormous opportunities for modified propylene in the coming years. For instance, in July 2023, Eastman unveiled Advantis adhesion promoters, which include modified polypropylene and polyethylene polymers, to assist paint and coating users in complying with the regularity modifications. This is the outcome of regulatory challenges placed on cumene in the European Union.

Increased demand for modified polypropylene in electronics manufacturing

Modified polypropylene is considered a prominent material in the manufacturing of electronic gadgets due to its compatibility with electric components. The presence of countries focusing on developing the manufacturing of electronics in their region is facilitating the need for modified polypropylene. According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade report, Vietnam’s electronic sector reached the export target of over 114 billion USD in 2022, which is growing significantly at 7% annually, leading to a total of 30% of the nation.

By Modification Type Analysis

UV stabilization segment is anticipated to witness the highest growth during forecast period

The UV stabilization segment is likely to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period, primarily attributable to the need for higher-potential polymers to withstand extreme weather conditions in the automotive industry. A 2020 study published in ResearchGate focused on testing the UV stabilization properties by adding hindered amine light stabilizers (HALSs) & zinc oxide stabilizers to the polypropylene. It concluded that there is an improvement in the UV resistance and power hardness of the polymer.

The impact modification and flame-retardant segment is driven by the problems of utilizing polypropylene in multiple applications due to its intrinsic alkaline structure, leading to the probable catch of fire. A 2023 study tested the properties of polypropylene among modified PET fiber-based polypropylene and pure polypropylene and found that modified polypropylene has higher stiffness, greater impact resistance, and decreased shrinkage at higher temperatures. 

By Product Type Analysis

Homopolymer segment held the largest market share in 2023

The homopolymer segment gained the largest market share in 2023 and is anticipated to boost its market position during the forecast timeframe. This is attributable to the wide range of applications in technological processing. The astonishing properties of modified polypropylene homopolymer, such as weldability, corrosion-freeness, rigidity, and chemical resistance, are promoting its adoption across a wider spectrum. It is used in the manufacturing of thermo-farming, blow molding, and sheet extrusion.

The copolymer segment is anticipated to grow at an optimal growth rate in the next few years, driven by its softness and durability in line with the polypropylene homopolymer. The higher rate of toughness and prominent stress crack resistance is gaining application in the production of automotive components, pipes, films, and others, contributing to the significant demand for modified polypropylene homopolymers.

By Application Analysis

Automotive segment registered an incredible revenue share in 2023

The automotive segment witnessed the largest share in revenue of the market in 2023, which is highly influenced by the rising need for environmentally friendly polymers in the marketplace, driven by stringent regulations by the nations. This emphasizes automobile manufacturers adopting recyclable materials in the production process, thereby boosting the demand for modified polypropylene in the coming years. As per 2023 industrial data, Thailand witnessed a rise in the production of cars by 1.78% in June.
