Polypropylene is the most important derivative of propylene, making up around 70% of propylene demand today. There are three different types; Homopolymer (HPP), Random Copolymers (RCPP) and Impact Copolymers (ICPP), each with different production processes and chemical and physical properties.

The physical properties of the derivative make it a versatile material used for the production of durable and non-durable goods and has many far reaching applications and demand sectors such as packaging, textiles (fibres) and the automotive industry.
