Linear Low Density Polyethylenes Market 2023 Global Analysis and Forecasts by T

Posted by Market Research Future on July 30th, 2019

Market Overview:

Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) is a copolymer produced from copolymerizing ethylene with butane, octane, and hexane. Ethylene is an organic compound derived from petroleum & natural gas.  It is mostly preferred over conventional linear density polyethylene owing to improved temperature resistance & tensile strength. Additionally, it offers high impact strength, flexible, chemical resistance, odorless, and translucent properties.

Growing demand from various end use industries such as housewares products, automotive industry, electrical & electronics industry, and others is expected to propel the growth of the global LLDPE market. It is sold as colorless and odorless plastic granules and pellets in the market. Furthermore, these pellets are used in industrial process such as extrusion coating, rotomolding, packaging film, and injection molding.  Increasing use in plastic manufacturing industry is majorly driving the growth of the global market. Application of plastic in packaging film is further categorized into food packaging and non-food packaging films.  Moreover, it is widely used in the food packaging industry owing to the properties that it offers such as heat resistance, flexibility, and ease to seal. The market for non-food packaging industry is majorly driven by the high usage of the thin films due to low production cost. Additionally, increasing demand for non-food packaging films from the agriculture sector for irrigation purposes is expected to increase the demand for product in profile extrusion. This application is attributed to the production of pipes, tubes, and others. Rotomolding and injection molding are extensively used in production of housewares products such as kitchen accessories, luggage, and furniture parts. Furthermore, growing use of LLDPE in industrial applications such as aluminium rolling, containers & tanks, dry cleaning conveyor belts and decorative coatings is expected to drive a significant demand for LLDPE over the forecast period.
