In March 2022, the propylene market in China accelerated its decline, and the mainstream market price had fallen to 8,200-8,400 RMB/MT. Increased product applications across food storage containers fueled the growth of the polypropylene copolymer market, owing to its strong impact resistance, outstanding optical, and flexibility properties. Furthermore, the product added value features like as gloss, transparency, light weight, and good heat resistance. It also aids in the preservation of food's organoleptic qualities.

Procurement Resource provides prices of Copolymer for several regions around the globe, which are as follows:
Copolymer refers to a polymer that is composed of two or more monomer species, unlike homopolymers, which contain only one type of monomer unit. Several polymers of commercial importance are copolymers, for example, polyethylene-vinyl acetate (PEVA), nitrile rubber, styrene/butadiene co-polymer (SBR), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and others. Copolymers are further categorised based on their structures. into linear copolymers and branched copolymers. Copolymer obtained via copolymerisation demonstrates the many benefits of hybrid materials and offers enhanced properties to the product to meet the specific needs, for example, to reduce crystallinity, limit wetting properties or to improve solubility.
In order to produce Copolymer, copolymerisation of two or more monomers is carried out at a specific temperature and conditions. Since the physicochemical characteristics of each monomer are unique, their nature of copolymerisation also varies depending on the monomer involved in the process. The obtained products unite the beneficial properties of their monomeric species while often negating their disadvantageous properties.
