Drivers & Restraints-

Increasing Usage of HDPE Resins in Manufacturing Sheets and Films will Boost Growth

High-density polyethylene resins are used to manufacture sheets and films worldwide. These are further utilized to produce industrial liners, refuse sacks, wrappings, and carrier bags. Also, the increasing penetration of the Internet, food delivery services, and online shopping platforms in the developing economies across the globe would affect the high-density polyethylene resins market growth in the near future. However, the availability of substitutes, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) may hamper growth.


Packaging Segment to Grow Rapidly Fueled by Usage in Plastic Bottles & Tubing

Based on end-use industry, the market is fragmented into automotive, building & construction, agriculture, packaging, and others. Out of these, the packaging segment held 47.30% HDPE resins market share in 2019 attributable to the increasing usage of the material for manufacturing corrosion-resistant tubing, plastic lumber, and plastic bottles. HDPE resins also have numerous beneficial properties, such as outstanding chemical resistance, compressive strength, and low temperature.
