Abstract: In recent years, polypropylene (PP) is one of the most important and fastest growing polymers currently produced. And it is also a major synthetic material for textile and composite industry. A major virtue of polypropylene is its ability to be used in a wide range of fibrous forms. Fibrous forms of polypropylene include staple, bicomponent staple, monofilament, multifilament, slit film yarns, slit-fibrillated film yarns, nonwovens, composites for low velocity impact etc. Here in this article applications of polypropylene in the field of geotextiles, filtration, electrical, flame retardant, automobiles, disposable diapers, hospital/medical care, and protective clothing etc. Also here an attempt has been made to summerize the history and various application of polypropylene fibre.
