Global Polyethylene Market expected to reach approximately USD 215 Billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 4% between 2017 and 2024. Polyethylene also called as the vinyl polymer is made from monomer ethylene through a polymerization reaction. It has a variable crystalline structure with a wide range of applications.

Description

Polyethylene is a vinyl polymer manufactured from ethylene monomer via polymerization reaction. Polyethylene characteristically is a single molecule of long-chain carbon atoms having two hydrogen atoms bonding with a carbon atom each. High-density polyethylene and low ethylene polyethylene are two common forms of polyethylene in the market today. Each molecule of LDPE is a branched polyethylene structure as compared to linear structured polyethylene molecule. HDPE has higher molecular strength than that of LDPE.

Rising investments in the infrastructure sector, low cost for feedstock, diversifying consumer goods market, increasing investment in infrastructure domain, the positive economic outlook of developing economies and low manufacturing (processing) cost are some of the factors driving global polyethylene market for the forecast period. Global investments in infrastructure sector are anticipated to reach $ 94 billion by 2040 according to World Bank estimates. Of the total investment, sanitation, electricity, and sustainable living houses will attract the bulk of the infrastructure investment. Rising demand for plastic recycling centers, stringent government regulations towards petrochemical products, fluctuating fossil fuel prices, and demand for green plastics will restraint polyethylene market growth for the forecasted period 2017-2024.

The entire market for polyethylene is segmented in terms of types and applications. By types, polyethylene market is bifurcated into high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and others. HDPE being relatively strong and cheaper in production holds the largest market share for the forecasted period. HDPE is commonly used in the manufacturing of bottles, insulators, containers, and wires. In terms of application, global polyethylene market is classified as automotive, plumbing, wires and others.

Global polyethylene market

Regionally, Asia Pacific is the largest market for polyethylene both in terms of volume and revenue. Polyethylene market in the Asia Pacific is propelled by growing middle-class consumers and thriving industries. Production of Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) a basic form of polyethylene within Asia Pacific countries is estimated to reach approximately 50 million metric tons by 2024 increasing from 32 million metric tons in 2017 according to Vinyl Council of Australia. Developing economies like India and China, transitional economies like Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand are amongst the key markets for polyethylene in the Asia Pacific for the forecast period. North America and Europe are key markets for polyethylene in terms of revenue generation. The market of both above regions is anticipated grow steadily within the forecasted period 2017-2024. Total revenue anticipated for polyethylene in North America is likely to reach approximately $ 35 billion in 2018. Construction and consumer electronics are key sectors driving growth for polyethylene market in North America and Europe.

Methodology

Free Analysis

Polyethylene also known as a thermoplastic polymer (polyolefins), has a variable crystalline structure with a wide range of applications. It is called a vinyl polymer made from monomer ethylene (polymerization of ethylene). A single molecule of polyethylene is a long chain of carbon atoms having two hydrogen atoms bonded with a carbon atom each. Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) are the most common forms of polyethylene in the market. LDPE comprise of a branched polyethylene structure whereas HDPE is a linear polyethylene molecule. HDPE is characteristically stronger than LDPE.

Because of its recyclability, easy processing, and low cost, polyethylene is the most common plastics in the world. Applications of polyethylene range from food wraps, bags, bottles, and containers. Polyethylene can be modified into synthetic fibers giving it an elastic property to that of a rubber.

Some of the factors driving polyethylene market are low-cost processability, rising investments in the infrastructure sector, diversification of consumer goods industry, low feedstock cost, the positive economic outlook of developing countries. According to World Bank, global investment in infrastructure is anticipated to reach $94billion by 2040. The bulk of the investments in infrastructure will be directed into making new sustainable living spaces, sanitation, and electricity. Stringent government regulations, awareness of hazards amongst petrochemicals products, demand for green plastics, rising investments in plastic recycling plants, fluctuating fossil fuel prices are the factors restraining polyethylene market for the forecast period.

Global polyethylene market

Global polyethylene market is segmented in terms of its types and applications. By types, polyethylene market is bifurcated into high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and others. HDPE holds the largest market share within global polyethylene market owing to its cheaper manufacturing cost, sturdy properties, and high demand. HDPE is used in wide range of applications like production of bottles and gift containers. Application segment is classified in terms of wires, plumbing, automotive, and others.

The Asia Pacific is the largest and fastest growing market for polyethylene for the forecast period. Market growth in the Asia Pacific is driven by expanding middle-class consumers and thriving industries. The total production capacity of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) a common form of polyethylene in the Asia Pacific, accounted for 32 million metric tons in 2017, according to Vinyl Council of Australia. India and China are key regions driving polyethylene market in the Asia Pacific. Vietnam, Japan, and Thailand are some of the other key markets for polyethylene in the Asia Pacific. Demand for polyethylene and its allied product in North America and Europe continues to show a steady rise for the forecast period. Polyethylene market in North America is anticipated to reach revenues of $ 35 billion in 2018, with the United States being the major market. Demand for polyethylene in North America and Europe is likely to be driven by investments in commercial construction, and expanding consumer electronics market.
