Opportunities in the global polyethylene compound market to reach $10.5 billion by 2023

According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future in the global polyethylene (PE) compound market is promising with opportunities in the pipe and fitting, wire and cable, film and sheet and others application. The global polyethylene compound market is expected to reach an estimated $10.5 billion by 2023 with a CAGR of 4.8% from 2018 to 2023. The major drivers for this market are growing residential and non-residential construction activities, and replacement of aging pipelines.
In this market, HDPE (high density polyethylene), and LDPE (low density polyethylene), are the major resins utilize to manufacture polyethylene compound. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the HDPE is expected to remain the largest segment by value and volume due to superior toughness, crack resistance, and easy processability properties.
Within this market, pipe and fitting is expected to remain the largest application by value and volume due to growth in development of water and sewage disposal infrastructure. Lucintel predicts that the wire and cable application segment will witness the highest growth in the forecast period due to higher electrical and mechanical properties than PVC compound.
Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to remain the largest region by value and volume and is also expected to experience the highest growth over the forecast period due to growth in infrastructure and construction industry and increasing demand of film and packaging products.
An emerging trend, which has a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include development of bio based green polyethylene compound. LyondellBasell, Borealis, Spartech, Solvay, Sumitomo Chemical, INEOS, Total S.A, RTP, and SABIC are among the major suppliers of the global polyethylene compound market.
