Polyethylene Films Market Identify Opportunities and Challenges

Increase in use of LLDPE-based polyethylene films owing to its high impact resistance has enhanced its application in the packaging sector, majorly in the food and medical industries.


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2018 -- Polyethylene Films Market was valued at $70,465 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $90,911 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 3.6% from 2017 to 2023. Polyethylene is defined as the semi-crystalline polymer used in production of films extensively owing to its properties, such as its flexibility and lightweight, cost, and ease of fabrication. Polyethylene films are prepared from metallocene linear low-density polyethylene (m-LLDPE) and linear low-density polyethylene with 0 to 8% polyisobutylene. Low density polyethylene is majorly used as a thermoplastic material and a major raw material in the film applications owing to its economic cost, toughness, chemical resistance, and ease of sealability.

Furthermore, polyethylene films are widely utilized in applications, which require thin films of 7.5 microns and in applications, where thick films of 760 microns are required. Polyethylene films are clear as well as colored, printed or plain, single or multilayered, and combined with other materials, such as aluminum and paper. In addition, all the plastic films are flexible in nature and are used in grocery bags, as opposed to rigid, as used in soft drink bottles and butter tubs.
