According to Global Polyolefin Market Size, Forecast, Analysis & Share Surpass US$ 298.98 Bn By 2028, At 7.5% CAGR

Polyolefin Market

The global polyolefin market accounted for USD 178.45 Billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 298.98 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2021 to 2028.

Polyolefin are polymers that are formed by polymerization of basic olefins. Olefins, otherwise called alkenes, are hydrocarbons with a carbon-hydrogen twofold bond. Polyolefin are hard, light in weight, and inflexible in nature. They are fundamentally applied in various custom made plastics, mechanical products, and food packaging. Polyolefin have waxy surface and they are mde at high temperatures. These hold their nonporous nature when heated and cooled. This makes them an optimal material for food packaging. Polyolefin are favored over other metallic and non-metallic substitutes because of light weight, toughness, and protection from physical and synthetic assaults.

Polyolefin are accessible in different kinds. Basically, they can be arranged into two significant forms viz. thermoplastic and elastomeric compounds. Thermoplastic mixtures incorporate polyethylene (PE), and polypropylene (PP). Polyethylene can be additionally characterized into low-thickness polyethylene (LDPE), direct low-thickness polyethylene (LLDPE), and high-thickness polyethylene (HDPE). LDPE and HDPE are utilized in great packaging films, attributable to their light weight and high toughness. Elastomeric compounds incorporate poly-isobutylene (PIB), ethylene propylene elastic (EPR), and ethylene propylene diene monomer elastic (EPDM elastic). Elastomeric compounds are utilized in the production of pads, pads, and footwear.

The polyolefins market is seeing a more slow development as far as interest from its downstream subsidiaries. Under supply and packed net revenues came about because of the continuous problems & limited developments in the polyethylene business are putting much more tension on makers. For manufacturers, who were at that point encountering over production network interruptions because of United States and China trade war. Another downturn in manufacturing sector is due to COVID-19 pandemic. The coming of COVID-19, which the World Health Organization has considered a pandemic, is noticeably affecting worldwide monetary turn of events. The pandemic has affected tasks in a few areas, including auto, oil and gas, assembling, aviation, and others, as most nations have proclaimed a highly sensitive situation, and the effect can in any case be found in the current quarter of 2021. Accordingly, interest for polyolefin has declined definitely.

Growth Factors

Films and sheets include wide range of application across transportation, packaging, agriculture, building and construction, and so on. Growing demand for polyolefin films and sheets from agricultural sector across various applications such as greenhouse, mulch and silage stretch films, and silage sheets, as well as construction for window films and the medical sector, are driving the market’s growth. Furthermore, polyolefin-based agricultural films not only protect vegetables from frost, wind, rain, and pests, but also speed up the ripening of fruit, vegetables, and flowers, enabling farmers to cultivate multiple crops in a year. Polyolefin films also help to minimize water consumption by reducing evaporation. On the other side, polyolefin sheet also finds its application in construction industry. The polyethylene sheeting is done under the slab, which acts as a vapor retarder. The most beneficial part of polyethylene sheets is they do not decay and have the capability to retard for longer duration. Due to this reason, the demand of polyolefin is also getting increase in construction industry.

Type Segment Analysis Preview

Type segment held a share of around 40% in 2020. This is attributable to high growth of various polymers synthesized. PP and PE are widely used in the market die to their easy availability & usage. These polymers are mostly used majorly in packaging and consumer good industry.

Application Segment Analysis Preview

Application Segment is further sub divided as Film & Sheet, Injection Molding, Blow Molding, and Others. Polyolefin have a huge application in the sheet & film industry and contribute major revenue from this sector. Followed by injection molding and blow molding which also contribute for major of the polyolefin market.

Regional Analysis Preview

Asia Pacific dominates the worldwide polyolefin market and was one of the significant purchasers of polyolefin in 2020. China holds a significant portion of the market in the district and India is relied upon to be the rapidly extending market in the local. Expansion in populated countries in Asia alongside rapid industrialization is relied upon to help the polyolefin market in Asia Pacific. South Asian nations, for example, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand are likewise significant business sectors. Districts, for example, North America and Europe are good business sectors for polyolefin.

These are moderately processing sectors and are required to observe stale development. Different regions like Latin America and Middle East and Africa are exchanging toward usage of capricious and bio-based sources. Enterprises in these districts are not investing in on R&D ventures combined with innovative headways. The polyolefin market in Saudi Arabia and South Africa is growing quickly. This, thusly, is probably going to expand the polyolefin market in Middle East and Africa. The locale has solid development and packaging enterprises, which are expected to drive the polyolefin market in MEA. Competition is probably going to highlight in the worldwide polyolefin market in the following not many years, inferable from execution of new ecological standards. This is additionally assessed to set out new open doors for major parts on the lookout.

With the presence of key manufacturers in the U.S., the market growth in North America will gain momentum during the assessment period. Apparently, Europe and Latin American market are predicted to have huge growth prospects and will contribute enormously towards the overall market size over the coming decade.

Key Market Players & Competitive Landscape

Some of key players in polyolefin market are Sinopec Corp., LyondellBasell Industries Holdings B.V., ExxonMobil Corporation, The Dow Chemical Company, LG Chem, Sabic, Reliance polymers, Alpex, Arkema, Borealis Group, Borouge, Braskem, CNPC, among others. 

April 2021 Dow Chemicals and Lucro Plastecycle, a homegrown Indian recycling company, welcome Marico Limited, one of India’s leading consumer goods companies into a tripartite partnership to introduce Dow’s PCR-based coalition shrink films into its line of consumer products. This alliance enables Dow to work towards meeting its new sustainability target of stopping waste by collecting 1 MMT of plastics to be collected, reused or recycled by 2030.

May 2021, Borealis has signed an agreement with Renasci Oostende Recycling NV to acquire the entire chemically recycled feedstock output from its high-tech recycling centre in Oostende, Belgium.
