LDPE Films Market

LDPE Films Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028

Market Overview

LDPE Films Market: An Overview

Low - density polyethylene film (LDPE) is a thermoplastic made by free radical polymerization of ethylene at high temperature and high pressure. LDPE films have low specific gravity which makes it a suitable choice for the flexible packaging industry. LDPE films are widely used in applications such as packaging, over wrapping and lamination. LDPE films have a low tensile strength which can be enhanced by reinforcing LDPE films with glass. The glass reinforced LDPE films have even further applications because of the increased tensile strength. The other advantages of LDPE films include the resistance to moisture at the wide range of temperature. Furthermore, LDPE films provide transparent films which are required in automobiles, electronics industries at a significantly lower price as compared to other packaging films. The ease of printing on the LDPE films makes them convenient for both producers and the customers. This feature of printing provides much information as required by the customers to decide between buying that particular product. Also, LDPE films has high chemical and electrical resistance which contribute to their use in cables and wires insulation.

LDPE Films Market: Dynamics

LDPE films market is expected to have an increased demand because of the various applications and end-use industries. The rising demand for packaged food is expected to drive the LDPE films market. The stringent government reforms on increasing the transparency in the packaging are expected to escalate the LDPE films market. The use of transparent films for the greenhouse in agriculture will promote the demand of LDPE films and increase the LDPE films market. Excellent optical properties of LDPE films and research in optical fiber cable industry offers an opportunity of growth of LDPE films market. The continuous advancement of recycling and biodegradable sector will also add to the growth of LDPE films market. The growing trends in the packaging design, printing will increase the demand of LDPE films market. The increase in demand of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) films may hamper the LDPE films market because of low cost and eco-friendly nature.
