The global high density polyethylene (HDPE) market reached a value of US$ 70.4 Billion in 2020. High density polyethylene, or HDPE, is a strong, moderately stiff plastic which has a highly crystalline structure. It is strong, relatively inexpensive and possess excellent process ability. HDPE plastic has several characteristics that make it an ideal material for packaging and manufacturing applications. It is tougher than standard polyethylene, acts as a powerful barrier against moisture and remains solid at room temperature. It is resistance to insects, rot and other chemicals. HDPE also does not create any harmful emissions during its manufacturing or during its use by the consumer. Furthermore, HDPE leaks no harmful chemicals into the soil or water. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global high density polyethylene (HDPE) market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
HDPE finds use in numerous applications and Industries where strong impact resistance, excellent tensile strength, low moisture absorption, and chemical and corrosion resistance characteristics are required. On account of these properties it is popularly used for manufacturing sanitary pipes as it has a tough chemical structure and is conveniently malleable. It has also gained popularity across the packaging industry as it is increasingly being used for the production of various products like bottle caps, food storage containers, bags, etc. Moreover, high density polyethylene has also been certified as a food grade polymer as a result of which it also finds applications in the food industry.
The competitive landscape of the market has also been examined with some of the key players being Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Dynalab Corp., The Dow Chemical Company, Exxon Mobil Corporation, LyondellBasell Industries N.V., INEOS AG, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), SINOPEC Beijing Yanshan Company, PetroChina Company Ltd., Braskem, Reliance Industries Ltd., Formosa Plastics Corporation, Daelim Industrial Co. Ltd., Prime Polymer Co. Ltd. and Mitsui Chemicals Inc.
