DUBLIN--()--The "Low Density Polyethylene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global low density polyethylene market reached a value of US$ 33 Billion in 2018. The market is further projected to reach US$ 41 Billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of nearly 4% during 2019-2024.

This report provides a deep insight into the global low density polyethylene market covering all its essential aspects. This ranges from macro overview of the market to micro details of the industry performance, recent trends, key market drivers and challenges, SWOT analysis, Porter's five forces analysis, value chain analysis, etc.

Market Drivers

Flexibility and toughness are the two unique qualities of low-density polyethylene which have been primarily responsible for its increasing demand. It also possesses transparency properties and a white appearance which makes it suitable to be used for the production of bags for groceries, bread covers, bubble wraps, etc.

We expect its demand to be strong from the automotive sector as it offers transparency at low weight. Strong demand from the food packaging industry is also expected to drive the market catalysed by a rising demand for transparent packaging. Applications of LDPE in food packaging is expected to be in meat and poultry wrapping, dairy packaging, bakery, frozen foods, etc.

Catalysed by the revival of the construction industry and a continuous population growth in both developed and emerging markets, demand for LDPE is expected to increase in the next five years. Increasing regulatory requirements from governments across the globe regarding energy efficient industrial infrastructure is also expected to catalyse the market.

LDPE products are renewable in nature owing to which they can be recycled under certain conditions. This is also positively influencing its global demand.
