Film & Sheet: The Largest Application Segment of the Metallocene Polyolefin Market

In 2015, the film & sheet application accounted for the largest market share, in terms of value, followed by injection molding and others. The injection molding application is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR, in terms of value between 2016 and 2021. The high growth can be attributed to the growing demand for injection molded plastics in packaging and automobile industries. Enhanced clarity and reductions in both initial seal temperature and crystal structure create many advantages for packaging industries. These factors have triggered the demand for metallocene polyolefins and positively influenced the growth of the metallocene polyolefin market worldwide.
