Global Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Fiber Market Overview:

Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene is characterised as a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene. It is also known as high-modulus polyethylene and has extremely long chains that all align in the same direction and serves to transfer load more effectively by strengthening intermolecular interactions. Hence, this results in a very tough material and the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic. It is odourless, tasteless, and nontoxic. It also embodies all the characteristics of high-density polyethylene. It is considered highly resistant to corrosive chemicals and has extremely low moisture absorption.

 

Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Fiber Market Forecast and Trends

 

Growth Drivers 

 

Increasing demand for orthopedics implants 

 

The rising demand for orthopedics implants is the major driver for the market. The demand for orthopedic implants has risen significantly, due to the rise geriatric population that increases the risk of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, technological innovations in orthopedic implants, and other musculoskeletal disorders. The ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene has been used in the implants in large amount j making of prosthetics and thus it would benefit the market. It is used for non-absorbable sutures as it is strong and durable. Additionally, the sutures made using ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene are flatter than the conventionally used polyester and poly-blend sutures.

 

Excellent Properties of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene

 

Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene provides a combination of exceptional properties. This ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene thermoplastic material is tough with superior impact strength. It is often considered a corrosion-resistant material and exhibits virtually no water absorption. It is wear-resistant, non-sticking, and self-lubricating. Additionally, it provides the fracture's toughness, has a low friction coefficient, high impact strength, and low density. These properties have a popular choice as the articulating surfaces of joint replacements, such as hip, knee, ankle, and shoulder. Thus, these properties are driving market growth.

 

Restraints 

 

Presence of Substitutes in the market

 

The ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene market can face the major restraint that is the presence of other substitutes or alternative substitutes such as polyoxymethylene, urethane, fluoropolymers, and polycarbonate. Additionally, the volatility in raw material prices is likely to hamper the market growth during the review period. these alternatives are most used in a liquid form as a coating, adhesive, or sealant. It is also typically used in pesticides and fungicides. It can also be purchased at lower rates and some are easily available. Thus, the whole market can get impacted by this. 

 

Impact of COVID-19 in industry

 

The global economy and humanity have been pushed into a crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the high infection rate and adverse impact on public health systems, various governments have enforced nationwide lockdowns significantly impacting manufacturing supply chains, trade, and related services. Players are currently considering digital solutions that would enable them to serve the community and provide new opportunities to do business. The production, manufacturing, supply chain, and other operations, have slowed down globally aimed to limit the spread of corona virus,

The global impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is likely only beginning and would significantly affect the Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Fiber market in 2020. The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought with it travel bans and quarantines; massive slowing of the supply chain; uncertainty in the stock market; falling business confidence, and growing panic among the population. Despite the growing uncertainty and panic, technology suppliers must continue to focus on their long-term investments, maintain engagement with partners and prospects, and look to specific markets for stability.

 

Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Fiber Market: By Form

 

Based on the form, the Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Fiber market is segmented into, sheets, rods & tubes, fibers, Films, tapes, and others. The sheet segment is likely to dominate in the market mainly due to the extensive use of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene sheets in the mechanical equipment industry. The sheet segment is also growing due to rising demand from the healthcare & medical end-use industry. The demand for sheets is also high in food production units, wherein the large volumes of containers namely can, and bottles need to be guided along conveyors these sheets are used in marine applications as they have low moisture absorption. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is used in cryogenic components, due to its low operating temperature abilities.
