Polyethylene is the most frequently used material, due to its unique features of durability, acid, and chemicals resistant which have been backing factor in the growth of plastics and packaging industries. Goldstein Research analyst forecast that the global polyethylene market size is set to reach USD 138.6 million metric tons by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 3.3% over the forecast period. The global polyethylene market is driven by the growth of forwarding and backward linkages. Moreover, environmental concerns towards sustainable management of non-renewable resources, trend of producing polyethylene have transformed from traditional practices of using crude oil towards using organic routes, through biological enzymatic reactions. Such trends will continue the growth pace of plastic industry on the line of sustainability.
Technology advancement over the period of time has triggered the growth not only in global polyethylene market but also the other industries such as plastic industry, packaging industry and recycled plastic market. The waste polyethylene is recycled to further manufacture products. One of the applications of polyethylene recycling is producing plastic cement that uses 60% – 40% polyethylene waste. Thus, as per our Global Cement Industry Overview, polyethylene market is also contributing as a driving factor for cement market.
Global polyethylene market industry also contains technological advancements, product development and investment strategies accepted by major market players in order to enlarge their business across the globe.
