Market Definition

Polyethylene is also known as polyethen or polythene which is one of the generally used plastics in the globe. Polyethylene generally have a linear structure which is known to be addition polymers. The common formula of polyethylene can be written as (C2H4)n. Most types of polyethylene are thermoplastic which can be remolded by heating. However, some reformed polyethylene plastics exhibit thermosetting characteristics. Polyethylene is often used to make containers, plastic bags, bottles, plastic films, and geomembranes.

Polyethylene Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Rising demand in packaging sector

There are numerous packaging options available on the market, but polyethylene is one of the most commonly used. It is the most durable plastic available today due to its unique properties such as chemically resistant and low cost. The rising demand of polyethylene for packaging products in the packaging industry is expected to drive the market growth rate.

  • Increase the demand for bio based products

The world is moving towards achieving sustainability by decreasing carbon footprints. The rising initiatives of the governments and various corporates in different economies are expected to significantly drive the demands for the bio-based polyethylene products. Furthermore, the major market players are shifting their focus towards the development and manufacturing of bio-based polyethylene which are the major reason for the rising demand of the polyethylene in the market.

  • Rising demand of High-performance polyethylene

High-performance polyethylene (HPPE) possesses numerous advantageous properties such as high impact strength and high resistance to strong organic solvents like acids and bases. Because of its low coefficient of friction, high-performance polyethylene is used in a variety of applications, including metal protection, pharmaceutical applications, lubrication of machinery in the food and beverage industry, and others. High-performance polyethylene is expected to drive the demand of polyethylene in the market during forecast period

Opportunities

  • Increasing number of developing strategies by the market players

The polyethylene market is fragmented, with several market players present. The major market players are constantly pursuing a variety of development strategies in order to gain a competitive advantage, gain market share, and capitalise on market opportunities. For example, in May 2020, UPM Raflatac launched a new line of Forest Film products made from post-consumer recycled plastics and used in product packaging.

Also, the development of new products and Advancements in technology are also contributing to revenue growth of the market and further boost beneficial opportunities for the growth of the polyethylene market.

Restraints/ Challenges

  • Harmful effect on environment

The use of polyethylene is very harmful for the environment when the polyethylene gets into the soil then deteriorate the quality and fertility of soil by releasing toxic chemicals. These major market restrains will obstruct the market's growth rate.

Polyethylene are the most produced wastes across the globe which are significantly pollutes oceans and lands. Most of the polyethylene-based plastic bag wastes gets dumped into the ocean, killing around 100,000 marine animals yearly. The government rules and initiatives to protect the environment from this wastes are anticipated to be the major challenge for the market players during the forecast period.
