In 2012, demand from the automotive industry for polypropylene was valued at US$13.28 billion and is expected to grow substantially through the forecast period. Geographically, the market has been segmented into China, North America, Europe, Rest of Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. Currently, the market is led by Asia Pacific, followed by Europe. However, China is anticipated to grow rapidly through the forecast period. Prominent players of this market include LyondellBasell, Borealis AG, BASF AG, and ExxonMobil Chemical.
