Polyolefins Market Is to Grow at a CAGR of 20% by Forecast to 2023


Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/15/2017 -- Polyolefin Market - Overview:

Polyolefins are macromolecules that are formed by the polymerization of olefin monomer units. The word polyolefin means 'oil-like' comes from the oily or waxy texture of plastics types that include polyethylene. Polyolefins contain carbon and hydrogen atoms and they do not have an inherent fragrance.

The most common forms of polyolefins are polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) respectively. These polymers are notably used in a wide area of applications depending on the material characteristics of the polymer, most notably consumer plastic. Polyolefins is also the collective term for the various kinds of plastics that comprise of polyethylene, namely low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP).

Key Market Players:

The key players in Global Polyolefins Market Report included are W.R. Grace, LyondellBasell Industries Holdings B.V, E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, PetroChina Company Limited, PolyOne Corporation, Arkema SA and SABIC.

Polyolefins are created from substances that replete in carbon: coal, oil or natural gas. Most of the polyolefin that are used to make packaging materials are made through film extrusion or moulding processes. In the film extrusion process the polymer is heated until it melts after which it is forced through a die to make a thick sheet, thin film or fibers. Depending on the density of the film, it can then be then utilized to produce anything from lightweight food packaging wrap to much heavier film which can used in the agricultural field. Whereas the moulding process uses the process of heating and compressing the polymer in a barrel, which is then forced (blown or injected) into a mould and cooled. The plastic items made by this process can be anything from crates and boxes, bottles or food containers. Polyolefins are also processed by extrusion, injection molding, blow molding, and rotational molding methods. The methods of thermoforming, calendering, and compression molding are the less common methods that are applied.

The production of polyolefin is expected to cross 180 million tonnes by 2022 globally. This is backed by the rising disposable incomes of average population have widened the scope for the market. The global Polyolefin market is set to cross USD 300 Billion at the end of the forecasted period and is expected to grow at CAGR of approximately 7% from 2016 to 2022.
