Market Overview


Global High-Density Polyethylene Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.91% during the forecast period. In terms of volume, the market was is expected to grow at CAGR of 4.21% during the forecast period. High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a type of polyethylene with a density above 943.0 Kg/m3. HDPE products are marked with the number ‘2’ as a resin identification code to make it easier for identification during recycling. HDPE is characterized by minimal branching of the polymer chain, which makes it denser and more rigid than Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) and Medium Density Polyethylene (MDPE). Additionally, it has the ability to resist high temperatures for short periods of time and is resistant to different types of solvents as well. These factors have enabled its widespread use in many applications. HDPE is typically used in the manufacturing of rigid food and non-food containers, plastic lumber, geomembranes, and corrosion-resistant piping owing to its high chemical resistance. It also finds application in chemical drums, household items, kitchenware, cable insulation, bottle caps, food wrapping material, carrier bags, rails, aeronautics, and vehicles. HDPE is also used in 3D printer filament, banners, geothermal heat transfer piping systems, natural gas distribution piping systems, firework mortars, and microwave telescope windows.


Some of the major demand drivers identified in the global HDPE market includes the growth in construction industry along with the increasing adoption of plastic materials in the construction industry. Furthermore, the bolstering demand for automotive plastics with the lightweight materials trend pertaining in the automotive industry is expected to drive the demand for HDPE in the automotive and transportation sector. Additionally, increasing use of HDPE products in an array of packaging applications is expected to offer bolstering opportunities for HDPE manufacturers during the forecast period.


Capacity expansions for HDPE is one of the major trends observed in the global HDPE market, for instance, Formosa and LyondellBasell; significant shareholders in the global HDPE market has expanded their capacity in 2018.
