PE Resins Market

PE Resins Market: Consumer Goods End Use Segment to Witness High Growth During the Forecast Period: Global Industry Analysis (2012 - 2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017 - 2027)

Increased application of PE based products in packaging, building and construction sectors to be the latest trend observed in the global PE resins market

HDPE Pipes are now being preferred over PVC pipes for supplying of fresh water to residential areas and farms. HDPE does not have any long term hazardous effects unlike PVC. Apart from fresh water supply application, HDPE plastic is also used for gas/compressed air system, hydro-transport systems, chemicals & edibles transport, and effluent & waste water disposal systems.

The trend for over wrapping of palletized goods is also gaining traction, attributed to the ability of minimizing the pilferage of packed goods. Shipping and logistics industry is replacing polyester straps with LLDPE films due to their high efficiency, as it is more flexible and stretchable. Demand of LLDPE films is growing rapidly in export oriented countries such as U.S, Germany, France, Spain, Mexico and Italy.

To gain competitive advantage and minimizing loss, packaging manufactures are focusing on increasing the shelf life of the packed products. The demand for LDPE films have significantly increased over the last decade owing to its high barrier properties and increasing trend for flexible packaging. Use of PE resins is also mushrooming with a view to meet the demand of PE polymer across various industries.
