US metallocene and single-site polymer demand will grow 17.7 percent annually through 2011. mLLDPE will remain dominant while mHDPE and polypropylene will lead gains. Film and sheet will stay the most common application but will be outpaced by injection and blow molding uses.
This study analyzes the $2.4 billion US metallocene and single-site polymer industry. It presents historical demand data (1996, 2001| 2006) with forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by polymer (e.g.| LLDPE| HDPE| polypropylene| EPDM| TPE?s and plastomers)| application (e.g.| film and sheet| injection and blow molding| elastomers) and market (e.g.| packaging| consumer goods and durable equipment| motor vehicles).
The study also considers market environment factors| details industry structure| evaluates company market share and profiles 28 leading competitors including Dow Chemical| Exxon Mobil| INEOS| and CPChem.
