Polyethylene (PE), with the formula (C?H?)?, is one of the most used and popular thermoplastic materials. It is available in various types, such as branched versions (low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), linear versions (high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), and cross-linked polyethylene (PEX or XLPE). It is processed through blow molding, injection molding, extrusion, calendaring, or blown film extrusion. In addition, it is used to produce different types of products, such as plastic containers, plastic bags, bottles, plastic films, and geomembranes, as they can be easily remolded after being melted into a liquid. Owing to these properties, it finds extensive application across automotive, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, food, and beverage (F&B) packaging, construction, agriculture, electronics, textile, military, and defense sectors.
The market is primarily driven by the rising product adoption in the food and beverage (F&B) sector. Manufacturers use effective PE packaging to minimize food contamination and loss of quality as it has a moisture barrier property that protects food and beverages from internal and external environments. In addition, it is deployed in the automotive industry due to its lightweight, sealing, processibility, and stiffness properties, which is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the usage of PE in sports goods, fashion apparel, and toys are growing significantly due to its ability to resist physical stresses and allow easy molding of products which represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the escalating demand for bio-based products due to the implementation of government initiatives to achieve sustainability by decreasing carbon footprints is providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Furthermore, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) is extensively used to produce protection equipment used in military and defenses owing to its high tensile strength, which is also creating a favorable market outlook across the globe.
