Market Insight

Evolution of plastics and resins made of petrochemicals has transformed several industrial sectors. Plastics and resins including polyester, polyethylene, polyurethane, polystyrene and others have exceptional physical and chemical properties. The enhanced physical and chemical properties of the plastics have augmented their use in various industries for numerous applications. Moreover, the plastics could be formed with different level of densities depending upon the application. The lower density polyethylene (LDPE) are lightweight plastics used in shopping bags, juice boxes, toys, and in insulation on electrical wires and cables. LDPE has enhanced characteristics including resistant to impact, moisture, and chemicals. Such chemical and physical properties augment the use of LDPE in the sectors including construction, packaging, automotive, electronics, sports, aerospace, and medical.


The spread of COVID-19 pandemic has put stress on food and pharmaceutical industry. The demand for food products and pharmaceuticals has increased during the pandemic, as many people are buying excess of foods and pharmaceuticals to stockpile for future needs. Several food and pharmaceutical use LDPE for packaging of their products. This, in turn, is expected to boost the demand for LDPE during the pandemic. However, the flow of goods has been hit hard by the spread of coronavirus. Several governments have executed stringent regulations on transport of goods as a preventive measure for pandemic. Disrupted logistics is one of the major obstacles for the LDPE market during the period of COVID19. The growing demand from packaging industry for lighter and stronger material is expected to majorly drive the growth of LDPE market. Apart from being light and strong, LDPE packaging has better moisture, heat and air barrier as compared to other plastic or paper material. Improved moisture, heat and air resistance provided by the LDPE keeps the food products and pharmaceuticals inside the packaging unspoiled. Moreover, LDPE is cheaper as compared to other plastic materials including polystyrene, nylon, and PET. The cost of production for LDPE is almost 10 times less than that of the other polymers. Lower production cost of LDPE is mainly due to the high availability of raw feedstock and large production volumes, which augments the demand for LDPE. However, the growing concern regarding the impact of LDPE on environment is majorly restraining the market growth. On the other hand, rise in the investment for R&D of innovative packaging material is expected to offer favorable opportunities for LDPE over the forecast period.


Among the geographies, Asia Pacific region generated the highest revenue for the LDPE market. Developing economies including China and India are majorly contributing to the growth of the market. The market is expected to register huge growth on account of the presence of larger consumer base. Furthermore, the easy availability of the raw materials in the region is expected to support the market growth. The expanding food and pharmaceutical industries in the region along with increasing government budget for the healthcare sector in China, Japan, India, and East Asian countries are anticipated to provide positive opportunities for the market across the region.
