Global Amorphous Polyolefins Market: Market Driver and Restraint
Amorphous poly-alpha-olefins (APAO/APO) are produced by (co-) polymerisation of α-olefins, e.g. propylene or 1-butene with Ziegler-Natta catalysts. The (co-)polymers have an amorphous structure which makes them useful for the production of hot melt adhesives.
The growing downstream industry is driving the industry forward. Currently, the industry is growing at an average annual rate of more than 5%.
Global Amorphous Polyolefins Market: Key Takeaways
This report studies the amorphous polyolefins market status and outlook of global and major regions, from angles of players, regions, product types and end industries; this report analyzes the top players in global and major regions, and splits the amorphous polyolefins market by product type and applications/end industries.
Global Amorphous Polyolefins Market: Forecast by Application
APOs are used as base polymers in hot-melt adhesives, bitumen modification, paper laminating, elastomer extenders in sealants, pressure sensitive adhesives, and many other applications. They are characterized by consistent quality, low odor, good heat stability, low color, and broad compatibility with numerous elastomers, polymers, and tackifying resins. Hot melt adhesive and pressure sensitive adhesive is the largest application field.
Global Amorphous Polyolefins Market: Forecast by Form
APOs are mainly classified into propylene homopolymer, copolymer of propylene and ethylene and propylene homopolymer and ethylene copolymer etc. Propylene homopolymer is the largest type.
