Market Description

Propylene market is primarily driven by its downstream usage from the PP market. Its demand estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during 2015-2022.

USA is a net exporter of propylene. However, surplus capacity of Ethylene via ethane based feedstock has altered the market dynamics of propylene (which is currently being produced as a by-product from Naphtha crackers).

Propylene capacity in Europe stood at around ~22.8 million MT in 2017. Capacity rationalization & higher feedstock cost has resulted in no capacity expansion within European market. European market is expected to remain tight during 2018-2020 due to no capacity additions.

The propylene capacity in APAC stood at ~60.6 MMT during the year 2017 and is expected to witness a high growth of 4-6% during 2018-22. Several capacity additions in the China market will reduce the overall imports by more than 50% in the long term.
