Polyethylene Films Market


Market Insight

Polyethylene or PE is a thermoplastic polymer with enhanced physical properties such as high flexibility, strength, toughness, and heat and moisture resistance. Polyethylene can be molded into various shapes and can be stretched to make films. Polyethylene films are used for the packaging of various food products such as fruits, vegetables, and baked food. Moreover, polyethylene films can be made with different characteristics such as rigid, inflammable, fireproof, transparent, and opaque depending upon the density, and structure of the polymer. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) films are widely used for heavy-duty applications in the construction and agriculture industries. HDPE films are rigid, and strong as compared to low-density polyethylene (LDPE) films, making them suitable for rough usage. Furthermore, the market players are focusing on developing innovative products and production methods to boost their sales and improve margins.


The spread of COVID-19 severely affected the polyethylene films market across the globe. COVID-19 pandemic affected the global polyethylene films market by reducing production and demand, disrupting the supply chain, and by its impact on firms and the financial markets. The gap in the demand supply hampered the functioning of the flourishing polymer industry. On the other hand, the revenue of most of the market players was decreased due to the minimal sale during the coronavirus outbreak. Shortage of raw materials was another major challenge faced by the polyethylene films industry during the pandemic. This, in turn, dropped the production of polyethylene films over the period of the pandemic. Furthermore, the lower production of polyethylene films in countries such as China, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Thailand created a shortage in the global market. Countries that are heavily dependent on the import faced a severe shortage of polyethylene films during the pandemic.


The growing demand from the food & beverage sector is majorly driving the growth of the market. The food & beverage industry widely uses polyethylene films for packaging applications. Thus, the growing food & beverage industry augments the growth of the polyethylene films market as it is the leading end-use industry. Moreover, the increasing adoption of polyethylene films in the construction industry is further propelling market growth. Polyethylene films are being used for various applications such as flooring, roofing, window films, and countertop protection in buildings. However, fluctuating prices of raw materials are expected to hamper the market growth for polyethylene films. Nevertheless, the emergence of innovative environment-friendly PE materials and eco-friendly manufacturing processes is anticipated to boost market growth in the future. Several vendors have developed different types of innovative polyethylene films that are bio-based, and degradable, which cause less harm to the environment.


In terms of region, the global polyethylene films market is segmented into four regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in the global polyethylene films market generating the highest revenue in 2020. Moreover, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period of 2021-2027. A large pool of consumers along with improving economic conditions is majorly driving the market growth in the region. Furthermore, North America held the second-largest market share for polyethylene films in 2020. The market was estimated to grow at a decent CAGR over the forecast period of 2021-2027. The better economic conditions in the region coupled with higher production of automotive in the region are driving the North American polyethylene films market.
