Market Dynamics


The growing demand for the bio-based polyethylene products

The globe is moving towards achieving sustainability by reducing carbon footprints. The growing initiatives of the various corporates and governments in different countries is significantly driving the demands for the bio-based polyethylene products. Moreover, the market players are shifting their focus on the development and manufacturing of bio-based polyethylene. For instance, in July 2020, Dow Chemicals and Thong Guan partnered to manufacture bio-based polyethylene products that targeted to serve the Asia Pacific region’s rapidly growing demand for the polyethylene. The bio-based polyethylene contains carbon elements that are renewable. Therefore, the bio-based polyethylene products are expected to gain rapid traction across the globe and will significantly contribute towards the market growth.


Growing consciousness among the consumers regarding the negative effects of polyethylene on environment

The polyethylene is extremely harmful to the environment. Moreover, governments in various countries have banned the use of plastic bags. Polyethylene gets into the soil and deteriorate the soil quality and fertility by releasing toxic chemicals. Moreover, sometimes the animals accidentally eats the plastic wastes and die due to choking. Therefore, the growing awareness and consciousness among the consumers especially in the developed regions may hamper the growth of the polyethylene market during the forecast period.


Rising number of developmental strategies by the players

The polyethylene market is fragmented with the presence of numerous market players. The players are constantly engaged into a number of developmental strategies in order to exploit the market opportunities, gain competitive advantage, and gain market share. For instance, in May 2020, UPM Raflatac introduced its new line of Forest Film products, made from the post-consumer recycled plastics to be used in the packaging of products.


Increasing health awareness and environmental protection activities across the globe

The plastic production across the globe was estimated at approximately 380 million tons in 2018. Plastics are the most generated wastes across the globe that significantly pollutes land and oceans. Most of the plastic bag wastes gets dumped into the ocean that kills around 100,000 marine animals every year. The government initiatives to protect the environment from plastic wastes are expected to be the major challenge for the market players in the upcoming years.
