High Demand for LDPE from Construction and Retail Industries

High usage of low density polyethylene is seen in the construction industry. With new construction projects coming up everywhere, the market demand for basic household products is also expected to rise. Most of these products are made by processing low density polyethylene (LDPE) through injection and extrusion moulding, e.g., pipes, trays, general purpose containers, toys and various bathroom, and kitchen products. Moreover, in the retail industry, more focus is on the packaging of products.

In 2014, total global retail sales were valued at ~US$ 20 Trn, which are expected to reach ~US$ 30.0 Trn – US$ 30.5 Trn by 2020 at a CAGR of ~ 6%. Low density polyethylene finds application in packaging and protective packaging of innumerable products sold in retail outlets. This, in turn, adds value to the global low density polyethylene market. Also, due to the rise in e-commerce, more people are buying products online. In 2014, the global e-commerce retail market was valued at ~US$ 1.5 Trn, which is expected to reach US$ 2.9-3.0 Trn by 2020.

In online business, safe delivery of commodities to customers is a critical concern for sellers. More attention is given on packaging of products bought through e-commerce or online sources, as compared to products sold through other channels. This factor is further driving the demand for low density polyethylene worldwide.

Improved LDPE Market Manufacturing Technologies

Prominent manufacturers of low density polyethylene are focusing on improvements in manufacturing technology of LDPE. Technological advancements in quality of product grades, lower production costs, and environmental impact of the product are driving the global players to optimize their production processes. Due to product optimization, newer grades of LDPE are coming into picture, which are not only cost effective but also easy to process.

  • For instance, the pyrotechnical safety system, proprietarily designed by Versalis, the chemical company of Eni S.p.A., reduces the probability of aerial explosion in case of ethylene decomposition.
  • Clean Tubular Reactor (CTR) Technology developed by SABIC offers options to produce extrusion coating grade LDPE, which is more suitable to autoclave reactors, which have higher installation as well as production costs.
