Shifting focus towards artistic labelling and packaging accompanied with providing food durability is forecast to fuel demand. Rising dual income nuclear families in BRIC nations, resulting in increasing consumer disposable income will drive industry growth. Furthermore, significant industrial growth in Asia Pacific and Latin America will favor industry growth.

Major raw materials include naphtha and ethylene; wavering crude oil prices across the globe is likely to hamper polypropylene random copolymer market price trend. For instance, naphtha price in 2009 was approximately USD 500/ton, drastically crossing USD 900/ton in 2010. Rising beverages including fruit juices, flavored water and milk demand globally will create new growth avenues for across packaging applications. Furthermore, the product possesses enormous potential for its use as an alternative to conventional packing material such as PET and glass. This may create new growth opportunities for the polypropylene random copolymer market.
