United States -Â A report studies the market for metallocene & single-site polymers and offers forecasts for 2011 & 2016. The report, by Freedonia, concentrates mainly on the plastics sector, but says, demand for metallocene and single-site polymers is projected to advance nearly 18 percent annually to 5200 million pounds (2.35 million tonnes) in 2011, valued at $5800 million (â‚¬4260 million.
The report says, "These polymers are expected to account for nine percent of all polyolefin polymers in 2011. Compared with polymers produced with conventional catalysts, metallocene and single-site polymers are tougher, more resistant to puncturing and tearing, and clearer and glossier.
Metallocene & Single-Site Polymers is a new industry study available for $4400. It presents historical demand data (1996, 2001, 2006) plus forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by type, application and market in pounds and current dollars. The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market shares and profiles 29 US industry competitors.
