Growth in US polymerization catalyst demand will derive primarily from increased polymer production and the expanding use of higher-value Ziegler-Natta and single-site catalysts. "These catalysts, which find their greatest use in rapidly growing, large-volume polyolefins, yield plastic resins that offer a variety of performance and processing advantages," says a new study from The Freedonia Group (www.freedoniagroup.com), a Cleveland-based industrial market research firm. Ultimately, demand for polymerization catalysts is highly dependent on polymer markets (Table 3). In particular, rapid growth in production of polypropylene and linear low density polyethylene will boost catalys
