The polyethylene market may expect an upward trend in the forecast period of 2016-2024. This is because of the surge in demand for polyethylene products such as plastic containers, plastic bags, plastic films, etc. Polyethylene, also known as polythene or polyethylene is a member of the polyolefin resins family and comprises of long ethylene monomer chains. Beneficial properties of polyethylene such as increased impact strength, good chemical resistance, high ductility, and low weight are expected to boost the polyethylene market.

  •  Due to the rising environmental concerns and stricter government regulations, a rise in bio-degradable polyethylene may provide new growth opportunities for the polyethylene market across the forecast period. The addition of various additives may generate excellent growth for the polyethylene market. Considerable demand from vertical industries and domestic households may also prove to be an exponential growth factor for the polyethylene market.
  • The use of polyethylene in sports, fashion, and toy industry has seen an upward trend due to various factors like packaging flexibility and durability. The agricultural sector is also proving to be a growth generator for the polyethylene market owing to the increasing demand for polyethylene for producing emitting pipes, nozzles, drippers, and microtubes.
  • The introduction of new technologies for beneficially using recycled plastic is also a growth accelerator for the polyethylene market. The application of polyethylene in the construction industry is also expected to grow during the forecast period. Large scale use of polyethylene in creating various materials used in construction such as cover building materials, window films, and sheets, cover building materials and seal off rooms. Therefore, these applications in the construction industry can help in boosting the growth prospects of the polyethylene market. Prominent players in the polyethylene market are Lone Star Chemical, Saudi Gazette KSA, Dow Polyethylene, and Global Polymer Industries Inc.

Global Polyethylene Market: Snapshot

Commonly known as polythene, polyethylene is the most common form of plastic available on earth. It is also one of the common polymer used daily and is synthesized chemically from ethylene. Polyethylene is employed in variety of forms and can be used for different products such as plastic containers, plastic films, and plastic bags as they can be easily remolded after being smelted into liquid. Although having different uses, polyethylene is considered harmful for the environment. The sales and consumption of polyethylene depends on several factors such as trends in the demand for several products manufactured using polyethylene, environmental concerns, and government policies. the extensive growth in the global population is expected to bode well for the growth of the global polyethylene market.

Global Polyethylene Market: Trends and Prospects

Some of the chief applications of polyethylene are polyethylene sheets, polyethylene tubing, and packaging bottles. The demand for polyethylene is expected rise substantially in the coming years owing to the growing use of plastic container in several vertical industries and domestic households. The use of these polyethylene products is likely to further increase owing to the burgeoning world population and developing world economy. In spite of polyethylene having several applications, its negative impact on the environment is substantially high. This is likely to challenge the growth of the global polyethylene market over the coming years. Although polyethylene cannot be easily degraded, it can be melted and again used for making different products. A kind of aerobic bacteria known as sphingomonas is used or degrading polyethylene. Several methods are being adopted to develop an ethanol based polyethylene.
