About Low-density Polyethylene (LDPE)

Polyethylene (PE) refers to a polymer of ethylene, particularly belonging to the category of lightweight thermoplastics. Polyethylene is partially crystalline in nature and has a high resistance to chemicals and moisture. Globally, it is the most commonly used plastic. It is used in the production of products ranging from packaging, construction, automotive, and other applications. The global polyethylene market was valued at $142.01 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach $170.95 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 3.78% during the forecast period. LDPE is a type of polyethylene with a density of less than 940 kg/m and is mainly produced through a high-pressure process. It is part of the polyolefins family.

Technavios analysts forecast the global low-density polyethylene (LDPE) market to grow at a CAGR of 2.63% during the period 2017-2021.
