Global Cross-Linked Polyethylene Market By Product (High-Density Polyethylene, Low-Density Polyethylene), Technology (Silane Grafting, Peroxide, Electron Beam), Process (Physical, Chemical), Application (Wires & Cables, Plumbing, Medical, Chemical industry, Automotive), Geography (North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa) – Industry Trends and Forecast to 2026

Market Analysis: Global Cross-Linked Polyethylene Market

Global cross-linked polyethylene market is projecting a rise by 2026, registering a substantial CAGR of 6.5% in the forecast period of 2019-2026 due to rise in the demand from automotive industry, increase in the demand of packaging industry and rise in the growth of plastic pipes in the solar industry

Market Definition: Global Cross-Linked Polyethylene Market

A thermosetting resin consisting of radiation cross-linking, peroxide cross-linking and silane cross-linking is defined as cross-linked polyethylene. Cross-linked polyethylene is widely used in plumbing industry for piping and tubing purposes, insulation, packaging and consumer goods. It is cross linked mainly to change its nature from thermoplastic to thermoset with enhanced mechanical strength. Cross linking of polyethylene results in polymer with high molecular weight improving the impact strength, tensile strength and density.

Market Drivers:

  • Cross-linked polyethylene has superior properties as compared to other materials which may act as catalyst for the market growth
  • Rise in the demand from automotive industry might boost the growth of this market
  • Increase in the demand of packaging industry would also accelerate the market growth
  • Rise in the growth of plastic pipes in the solar industry could enhance the market growth

Market Restraints:

  • It has a tendency of degradation by the direct sunlight might act as a restraint to the market growth
  • Safety concern regarding pipes and plumbing failure would hamper the growth of the market
  • Easily perforation by the insects can also restrict the market growth
