Low Density Polyethylene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global low density polyethylene market reached a value of US$ 35.6 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 44.8 Billion by 2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor. 

Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic polymer manufactured at a high pressure through the free radical polymerization process. It is a semi-rigid and translucent polymer with 4,000 to 40,000 carbon atoms. It is non-toxic, non-contaminating and can resist against impact, moisture, chemicals, tear and stress crack. As a result, it is widely used in the production of trash bins, floor tiles, packaging, shipping envelopes, and dropper bottles. Besides this, its application is expanding in several end use industries across the globe on account of the renewability and electrical insulating properties of LDPE.

Low Density Polyethylene Market Trends:

LDPE assists in safeguarding edible products from pathogens and environmental factors, thereby extending their shelf life and retaining their taste and nutrition value. As a result, it is employed in the food and beverage (F&B) sector for the packaging of snacks, baked goods, meat products, and dairy and frozen items. It is also utilized in the production of liners, tamper-evident packaging and several other products. Apart from this, it finds application in the pipes and fittings industry due to its low water absorption and plasticity. Moreover, LDPE-based compounds are used to insulate materials for sheathing telecommunication wires and cable applications. This, coupled with the rising environmental concerns, is positively influencing the demand for LDPE worldwide as it is non-toxic, renewable, and can be recycled under several conditions. Furthermore, the burgeoning construction and automotive sectors are projected to strengthen the market growth.
