Polyethylene is the future of polymer industry. The Polyethylene market is rising at a very fast rate. Polyethylene, commonly abbreviated with Polyethane, is the most common thermoplastic polymer resin. Polyethylene is extensively used in construction material manufacturing, container of food and beverages, glass fiber production, film or sheet production and many more. Polyethylene The global Polyethylene market is boosted by the growing demand of Polyethylene in food and beverages and film/sheet industries. In this report Polyethylene are segmented by application– packaging, automotive, household products, construction material and electrical & electronic product body part. Polyethylene is highly resistant of tracking of electric, works as an excellent electric insulator. Thus, it is commonly used as UV stabilizer. Polyethylene is also widely used in making of piping systems, medical and laboratory equipment, gas piping systems and fittings. Automotive body parts are made of polyethylene for its lightweight and light density physical properties. As of 2017 Polyethylene is one of the most vital engineering products which have well-diversified end users. Hence, Polyethylene is going to fuel the market growth during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025.
Primary application of Polyethylene are in flexible lightweight packaging, container manufacturing, textile and electrical & electronics body parts. Polyethylene products are classified in this report by its mechanical properties which vary on the type of branching, crystal structure and the molecular weight. High Density polyethylene (HDPE), Medium Density Polyethylene (MDPE), Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) and others includes Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE); Very Low Density Polyethylene (VLDPE).Due to the high tensile strength HDPE is popular in making of products and packaging such as detergent bottles, butter tubs, milk jugs, garbage containers, and water pipes. Density of LDPE is 0.910 to 0.940g/cm3 which results in low tensile strength and high ductility. Molten LDPE has unique desirable flow properties. LDPE is used for both rigid containers and plastic film applications such as plastic bags and film wrap.
Polyethylene market has been on a growing stage throughout the forecast period. Polyethylene will be one of the major trends to gain attention in this market in the upcoming years. In modern flexible packaging system of foods and beverages Polyethylene is becoming necessity for its amazing physical properties which are absolutely suitable for packaging of food and beverage products. A major useful attribute about thermoplastics is that they can be heated to their melting point, cooled, and reheated again without significant degradation. Instead of burning, thermoplastics like Polyethylene liquefy. This is the primary reason to use polyethylene as a container of liquids and pipes of gasoline. Polyethylene has the diversity of density in polymer or plastic which differentiates its application throughout the numerous industries. Consequently the rising demand of light weight plastic is influencing the market of Polyethylene. Apart from this the high melting point of polyethylene is one of the crucial properties which encourage its diversified industrial use
Major applications of Polyethylene are in flexible lightweight packaging, household products and electrical & electronics body parts. The global Polyethylene market is segmented by regions on the basis of revenue. North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle-East & Africa and Latin America are the regions which are segmented for Polyethylene market. As of 2017 the Asia Pacific region are the most emerging market for Polyethylene. High economic growth, massive population is encouraging better lifestyle among the population resulting in huge demand of Food & beverage processing, in textile and electrical & electronics industries.
Some of the major players in the Polyethylene market are Bayer AG, E.I. DuPont, Dow Chemical Company, BASF SE, Saudi Basic Industries Corporations, and Azko Nobel N.V and so on.
