Polypropylene, also known as polypropene, is a type of thermoplastic polymer resin discovered by Karl Rehn, a German chemist and Italian chemist named Montecatini in 1954. The thermoplastic polymer in used in a wide range of applications such as textiles, labeling and packaging, plastics, stationary, and laboratory equipment owing to its property of being highly versatile. The beneficial properties of polypropylene make it useful in everyday applications,for instance, plastics. Its high melting point vis-à-vis other lightweight plastics makes it useful in food and beverage containers that require high temperature resistance. Polypropylene can be manufactured in three forms which include isotactic, syndiotactic and atactic. Isotactic is the primary form of polypropylene manufactured in the market. These polymers can be dyed into various colors. These can also be customized. These are major reasons for its usage in the manufacture offibers employed in carpets.

Polypropylene is used in a wide range of applications such as plastics, carpeting, reusable products, paper, and medical equipment. Polypropylene is used in the manufacture of toys and automobile products in the plastics industry. These polymers are employed in the making of upholstery, area rugs, and all types of carpets due to their chemical and physical properties. These polymers are used in reusable products such as jars, containersetc. Demand for polypropylene is expected to be significant in the paper industry for applications such as stationary and other writing bindings.
Synthetic polymers are petrochemical-based polymers obtained through bulk/ slurry, hydrocarbon slurry, and gas phase processes. These three processes are used to manufacture polypropylene. Stringent directives and regulations regarding the usage of plasticsare likely to hamper the growth of the polypropylene market. Currently, ecofriendly materialsare usedin themanufacture of polypropylene.Raw materials used in the manufacture of bio-based polypropylene include corn, biomass, vegetable oil, and bio-diesel. Demand for synthetic and bio-based polypropylene is projected to increase significantly owing to their potential functional properties and characteristics.
