Insights on the Low Density Polyethylene Global Market to 2026 – by Manufacturing Process, Feedstock, Application and Region –

The “Low Density Polyethylene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026” report has been added to’s offering.

The global low density polyethylene market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global low density polyethylene market to reach a value of US$ 44.8 Billion by 2026.

Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic polymer that is manufactured at a high pressure using the free radical polymerization process. It is a semi-rigid and translucent polymer with 4,000 to 40,000 carbon atoms. It is non-toxic, non-contaminating and resistant against impact, moisture, chemicals, tear and stress crack. Owing to these properties, it is widely used in the production of packaging, trash bins, floor tiles, shipping envelopes and dropper bottles. Moreover, its renewability and electrical insulating properties have resulted in the expanding application of the LDPE in several end use industries across the globe.

LDPE is employed in the food and beverage (F&B) sector for packing meat products, snacks, baked goods, and dairy and frozen items. This assists in safeguarding these products from pathogens and environmental factors, thereby extending their shelf life as well as retaining their taste and nutrition value. Apart from this, it is utilized in the production of liners, tamper-evident packaging and several other products. It is also employed in the pipes and fittings industry, owing to its low water absorption and plasticity.

Moreover, LDPE-based compounds are used to insulate materials for sheathing telecommunication wires and cable applications. Furthermore, due to the rising environmental concerns, the demand for LDPE is escalating as it is non-toxic and renewable, and can also be recycled under certain conditions. Additionally, the burgeoning construction and automotive industries are anticipated to strengthen the market growth in the upcoming years.
