SKU: D | Published On: | Available Formats

Low-Density Polyethylene Market

  • Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic made from the polymerization of ethylene polymer. It possesses superior properties such as excellent resistance to dilute and concentrated acids and has enhanced resilience.
  • It is one of most widely preferred industrial plastics and finding its applications in the flexible packaging industry, construction industry, automotive industry, and many others.
  • The global LDPE was worth XX billion in 2018 and is forecasted to reach XX billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2018-2025

 

Low-Density Polyethylene Market Dynamics

  • The growth of the packaging industry, rising demand for low-density polyethylene from the construction and automotive sectors and the growth of the textile industry are the major factors responsible for boosting the growth of the global low-density polyethylene market.
  • Low-Density Polyethylene is widely used in the automotive industry to manufacture automobile parts as LDPE is tough, flexible and light in weight.
  • According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicles Manufacturers (OICA), 96.8 million vehicles were sold globally in 2017 compared to 93.9 million and 89.7 million in 2016 and 2015 witnessing a growth rate of 3.08% in 2017 and 4.6% in 2016 respectively. Moreover, according to a survey report by the construction intelligence center, the volume of construction industry output grew by 3.1% in 2018 compared to USD 10.6 trillion in 2017.
  • Moreover, according to Oxford Economics, the volume of construction output will increase by 85% worldwide in 2030. Owing to these reasons, the growth of the automotive and construction sectors are significant factors boosting the growth of the global low-density polyethylene market.
  • However, environmental concerns over plastic pollution, potential substitutes of low-density polyethylene such as high-density polyethylene and volatility in raw material prices such as crude oil and natural gas are the major factors restraining the growth of the global low-density polyethylene market.
  • Plastic pollution is a rising concern these days owing to the non-degradable and non-decomposable nature of plastics. According to the United Nations Environmental Organization, more than 300 million tons of plastic waste is produced annually, which is the same as the total weight of the entire human population.
  • It is estimated that more than 8.3 billion tons of plastic has been produced since the early 1950s and only 9% of this has ever been recycled and the unrecycled plastic ending up either in a landfill or in the natural environment.
  • Owing to these reasons, environmental policies concerning the non-degradable nature of plastics is a crucial factor impeding the growth of the global low-density polyethylene market.
