Polyethylene
Polyethylene

Global demand for polymers has reached around 260 million tonnes in fiscal year 2017-18 and the share of polyethylene in total polymer consumption is about 37%. Demand is met through a culmination of domestic production and imports from international market as production has not been able to keep pace with demand.

Polyethylene (PE) and its variants: Low-density Polyethylene (LDPE), High-density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Linear Low-density Polyethylene (LLDPE) are used in a host of applications across sectors such as agriculture, housing, automobiles, FMCG, textile, health-care and infrastructure for their versatility, ease of manufacturing, cost efficiency and affordability.

Demand has seen a healthy growth rate of 7.0 % from the fiscal year 2011-12 to 2016-17 and is expected to rise forward towards double digits over the period 2017-2021. Capacity additions by major players will increase production substantially over the next 5 years. Production of HDPE, LDPE and LLDPE is expected to grow at a rapid pace over the next five years. RIL, HPL, GAIL, IOCL, ONGC (OPaL) and BCPL are the producers of polyethylene in India.

Global demand for Polyethylene in the fiscal year 2017-18 is 92 MMT and it will reach 113 MMT in 2022 at an annual growth rate of 4.2%. The Asia Pacific is expected to continue its dominance over the market owing to the rising demand for polyethylene from manufacturing industries. The market for polyethylene is expected to exhibit tremendous growth potential in countries such as China, Russia, Brazil and India. China is a major contributor to the growth of global polyethylene market which accounts for more than 25% of the global polyethylene market.

Polyethylene will continue to be the most widely used plastic resin in the world, benefiting from its versatility, easy processability, low cost, and recyclability. The development of ethylene feedstocks from new sources such as shale gas, coal, and biobased materials will also give polyethylene a price advantage over other plastic resins. Moreover, continually improving polymerization catalyst technologies will enhance the performance, customization, and yield of polyethylene resins.
