Global Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Market to Reach Worth USD 85.7 Billion by 2028

Published | 15 March 2022

The growth of the linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) market can be primarily attributed to increasing demand for LLDPE from numerous end-use industries like solar power and packaging industries coupled with rising demand for metallocene-catalyzed LLDPE specifically in the Asia-Pacific region and the extension of the plastics throughout the world…

A recent study by the strategic consulting and market research firm; BlueWeave Consulting revealed that the Global Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) Market was worth USD 61.3 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 85.7 billion by the year 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% over the analysis period of 2022-2028. The expansion in the linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) market can be primarily attributed burgeoning demand from numerous end use industries including automotive industry, electrical & electronics industry, housewares products industry among others which is driving the growth of the global linear low-density polyethylene market during the forecast period 2022-2028.

Burgeoning Demand by Various End-Use Industries Driving the Global LLDPE Market Growth

The surge in the demand from the food packaging industry due to its properties like flexibility, heat resistance, and ease to seal is one of the major factor driving the growth of the global LLDPE market during the forecast period 2022-2028. Moreover, the non-food packaging industry market is mainly driven by the escalating usage of the thin films as they are quite cost-effective. In addition to this, the rising demand for non-food packaging films for irrigation purposes by the agricultural sector is anticipated to augment the demand for the product in profile extrusion. Furthermore, injection molding and rotomolding are being widely used for manufacturing housewares products like kitchen accessories, furniture parts, luggage. The amplifying usage of LLDPE in industrial applications like containers & tanks, aluminium rolling, decorative coatings and dry-cleaning conveyor belts is likely to drive a substantial demand for LLDPE during the forecast period 2022-2028.

Packaging Industry to Grow at A Higher Growth Rate During the Forecast Period

With the growing urbanization, industrialization, rising personal disposable income, changes in the lifestyles of people, there has been an augmentation in the expenditure on food and beverages, apparel, and pharmaceuticals throughout the world. The growing on-the-go food consumption culture, growing number of online food delivery platforms has played an efficient role in augmenting the demand for LLDPE in the packaging industry with LLDPE becoming the most commonly used material in the packaging industry. Several products are mass-produced using LLDPE, owing to the low cost, high clarity, heat seal-ability, softness and better elongation. Moreover, LLDPE provides a high stretch rate needed for stretch films. Low density polyethylene offers a low shrink temperature and is utilised to wrap bottles as well as canned goods. Such beneficial characteristics play a major role towards augmenting the adoption rate of LLDPE across various end-use industries.
