Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Demand for Processed Food & Beverages to Drive Growth

Europe is experiencing high demand for food products owing to the rising population. Also, the busy and changing lifestyles of people are increasing the need for processed food items that consist of longer shelf-life. This factor is compelling the manufacturers to utilize effective packaging solutions to prevent spoilage of food items. Polypropylene is capable of protecting the food and beverages from becoming stale due to external and internal factors. It can act as a moisture barrier. At the same time, it protects those products from temperature fluctuations and UV rays.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a rapid decline in the demand for polymers and gasoline. This is further resulting in the fluctuations in the prices of crude oil. Apart from this, the rising restrictions and halt of production processes in various industries owing to the lockdown measures may hamper the Europe polypropylene market growth in the near future.
