The global metallocene polyethylene market is projected to reach USD 19.33 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 8.9% between 2015 and 2020. The base year considered for the study is 2014 and the market size is forecasted from 2015 to 2020. The metallocene polyethylene market is divided into four major regions, namely, North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and RoW. On the basis of application, market is divided into four major segments, namely, Film, Sheet, Injection Molding, and Extrusion Coating. Based on its types, metallocene polyethylene has been classified into mLLDPE, mHDPE, mLDPE and others.

Expensive metallocene catalysts results in higher pricing of the finished products. However, new technologies are now lowering the production costs of metallocene catalysts. Also, market leaders are investing on a large scale in R&D to introduce new activator technologies that could make the process cost effective, and at the same time maintain the specialized properties of mPE.

Metallocene Polyethylene: The global metallocene polyethylene market is projected to reach USD 19.33 Billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 8.9% from 2015 to 2020. The market will grow due to the shift in preference towards high grade polyethylene, high demand for films and sheet from the packaging and non-packaging industries, and technological advancements in end-use industries.

Among applications, film application is the most popular and fastest growing segment with regard to consumption of metallocene polyethylene. Metallocene polyethylene is widely substituting various polyethylene grades due to its excellent strength and optical properties over conventional polyethylenes. It is an advanced grade of polyethylene that has enhanced the world of polyethylene. Its superior properties have led to downgauging, and it offers sustainable end products. Metallocene polyethylene (mPE), which was once a niche grade, has now taken over conventional PE due to its ability to downgauge and provide superior sealing performance and toughness.

Metallocene polyethylene is used in a variety of industries, such as medical, packaging, agriculture, wires, cable and others. Film application segment accounted for approximately 63% of the consumption of the metallocene based polyethylene in 2014. Film application caters to various end-user industries including food packaging and non-food packaging industry.

With several metallocene polyethylene (mPE) families available in the market place today, metallocene based PE offers a wide range of grades and types. For example, mHDPE provides injection grades for high melt flow and good impact properties. mMDPE provides grades for film application; similarly, various grades are developed by mLLDPE for providing high puncture resistance, high stiffness, heat resistance, low heat sealing temperatures, and superior optical properties.

North America held the largest share in the global metallocene polyethylene market in 2014 and is expected to continue doing so during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market during the forecast period owing to rising demand for superior performance polymers from the packaging industry. The high-scale industrialization, developing economy are some of the factors that have resulted into growth of this industry. Many global players are entering into the region due to cheap labor, easily availability of raw material, and favorable governmental rules and regulations.

Metallocene Polyethylene Market

The factors inhibiting the global metallocene polyethylene market are volatility in raw material prices and recessionary effect on the end-user industries. The players in this market have adopted various strategies to increase their market shares. New product launches, expansions, acquisitions, and research & development are some of the important strategies adopted by the market players to achieve growth in the metallocene polyethylene market.
