Polyethylene is the largest volume polymers business globally. It is primarily used in packaging such as bags, films, automotive components etc. The industry has become increasingly integrated. New steam crackers projects are typically integrated into polyethylene production.
This report covers the latest developments in renewable polyethylene including bio ethylene, recycling, technology developments and the impact of the latest merger and acquisition activity on the business.
The report covers high density polyethylene (HDPE), low density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE).
This report provides intelligence and analysis on polyethylene, including supply sources, demand drivers and trade. In each case of capacity, supply, demand and demand by application the report breaks polyethylene down into HDPE, LDPE and LLDPE. The report includes a 5 year history and 10 year forecast for all major producing regions listed below with new capacity additions documented. The report includes demand of polyethylene into its end use applications making use of intelligence within Petrochemical Reporters data base to obtain a detailed analysis of demand based on derivative consumption. An overview of each of the commercial technologies mentioned will be included in the appendix along with a detailed methodology.
