Low Density Polyethylene Market Size, Share, Demand & Trends by 2029

Rising demand for low density polyethylene in multiple applications like extrusion coatings, injection moulding, films, and sheets, among others is expected to boost the market over the forecast period. The global low density polyethylene market is predicted to reach a valuation of US$ 43,190.5 Mn in 2022. The market is expected to reach US$ 58,782.2 Mn by 2029, with sales growing at a rate of 4.5% CAGR over the forecast period of 2022-2029.

Elevated demand for low density polyethylene (LDPE) in end-use industries such as edible & frozen foods, liquid packaging, agriculture, electrical cables, and others is promoting market expansion for low density polyethylene. LDPE is also used in liquid reservoirs, electrical components, and upholstery among others. In addition to varied applications of LDPE, the implementation of strict government regulations aimed at reducing vehicular emissions, compel the automotive industry to shift to lightweight plastics for a variety of uses. Thus the automotive industry is also expected to contribute to low density polyethylene market growth.
