Polyethylene Films – The Global Market 2021
Published: June 2021
It’s a competitive space.
For newcomers to the industry and old hands alike, understanding trends and developments, industry size and structure, is key.
Constant innovation and process development has driven the polyethylene market since its original inception with LDPE in the 1930s. Common technology platforms and the commoditisation of grades have made the market increasingly global.
Together with changing patterns of demand, the polyethylene industry is entering a new era, with more mature Western markets and resin suppliers migrating to faster growing markets like India, or to areas with a feedstock advantage i.e. North America and the Middle East.
Sustainability and environmental concerns will also shape production trends and influence material innovation in all regions, across a wide variety of end use applications. Learn more in this report.
