Posted February 11, 2022 by rohit890

Propylene belongs to the alkene class with three double bonded carbon atoms. It is the second highest used petrochemical after ethylene.
Market Overview

Propylene belongs to the alkene class with three double bonded carbon atoms. It is the second highest used petrochemical after ethylene. Propylene or Propene is a byproduct of oil refining and natural gas processing. During oil refining, ethylene, propene, and other compounds are produced as a result of cracking larger hydrocarbons. A major source of propylene is naphtha cracking, which is intended to produce ethylene and results from refinery cracking producing other products. Propane dehydrogenation converts propane into propylene with byproduct hydrogen. Fluid Catalytic Cracking splitters and On-Purpose Technology (OPT) are most widely used propylene production technologies worldwide. Its end-uses include films, fibers, containers, packaging, and caps and closures. Propylene is considered as an important building block for various chemicals such as polypropylene, propylene oxide, acrylonitrile, cumene, oxoalcohols, isopropylalcohol, acrylic acid, acrylated, isobutyl benzene, and EPDM rubbers. These derivatives of propylene are used in various end-use industries such as automotive, construction, textiles, and packaging.
