The global Polypropylene Carbonate (PPC) market was valued at USD 711.5 million in 2022, and is growing at a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period.
Polypropylene Carbonate (PPC) Market Overview:
Polypropylene carbonate is a copolymer of carbon dioxide and propylene oxide. It is soluble in polar solvents such as acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, ethyl acetate, dichloromethane, and chlorinated hydrocarbons. It is insoluble in ethyl alcohol, ethylene glycol, water, and aliphatic hydrocarbons.
Polypropylene carbonate is used as a binder. It is used to increase the toughness of some epoxy resins. It is unsuitable as an oxygen barrier; therefore, it is used in applications where diffusion of oxygen through the plastic is desired.
Polypropylene carbonate and polyethylene carbonate are used as sacrificial binders in the ceramics industry. Polypropylene carbonate binders are amorphous, with glass transition temperature of 40°C. Polyethylene carbonate has glass transition temperature of 25°C.

Significant Polypropylene Carbonate (PPC) Market Dynamics and Growth Factors:
Polypropylene carbonate is primarily used as an adhesive because of its excellent adhesion to structures. In the ceramic industry, polypropylene carbonate is used as a sacrificial binder, especially for alumina and silicon carbide. Low sodium content, suitable for preparing dielectric materials, piezoelectric ceramics and other special electric ceramics. Polypropylene carbonate is also used as a toughening agent in thermoset and epoxy resins to increase the toughness of these resins. This is expected to drive the global polypropylene carbonate market in the near future.
Increasing industrialization and stringent regulation by various government agencies on air emissions from different industries such as plastic manufacturing, especially in developing regions across the globe, is driving preference for non-hazardous, bio-based chemicals and biodegradable products. Composite materials of polypropylene carbonate and starch (PPC/starch) can be used as biodegradable plastics. This is expected to boost the global polypropylene carbonate market in the near future.
Polypropylene carbonate is challenging to use in many applications due to its poor thermal stability, mechanical strength and dimensional stability. This is restraining the global polypropylene carbonate market.
