High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) To Account for Highest Shares

According to the report, the Polyethylene Market on the basis of Polyethylene Market is segmented into high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), and linear-low density polyethylene (LLDPE). HDPE will account for the largest market shares during the forecast period owing to its characteristics such as low manufacturing cost, high strength to density ratio, and high-temperature resistance. Furthermore, the low-density polyethylene (LDPE) segment will witness considerable demand owing to its properties such as chemical resistance, flexibility, and softness. In addition, the rising demand for lightweight packaging in industries such as electronics, healthcare, and food & beverages will aid well for the low-density polyethylene (LDPE), which, will, in, turn boost the Polyethylene Market revenue.

Furthermore, linear-low density polyethylene (LLDPE) segment is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period owing to its properties such as high tensile strength, high impact resistance, and flexibility. (LLDPE) is produced by copolymerization of ethylene with butene, and small amounts of hexene and octene, using Ziegler-Natta catalyst. The properties of (LLDPE) makes it suitable for industries such as packaging, agriculture, building & construction, and healthcare.
