The Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW PE) market is projected to reach USD 2.16 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2016 to 2021. The key factor driving the UHMW PE market is the growth in the healthcare & medical industry.

The major end-use industries of the UHMW PE market are aerospace, defense, & shipping, healthcare & medical, mechanical equipment, and others, which include sports & lifestyle and electronics industries. Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW PE) is a simple linear background polyethylene possessing unique properties such as noise resistance, low coefficient of friction, excellent chemical resistance, self-lubrication, bio-compatible, wear resistance, and electric insulation resistance. This makes the material a preferred choice for prosthetic implant manufacturers across the globe. The healthcare end-use industry segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing usage of UHMW PE for the manufacture of orthopedic implants.

On the basis of form, the sheets segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the UHMW PE market in 2016. This large share is mainly attributed to the extensive use of UHMW PE sheets in the mechanical equipment industry. The segment is also anticipated to grow at a higher CAGR from 2016 to 2021, owing to the increasing demand from the healthcare & medical end-use industry.

Increasing demand for UHMW PE by the healthcare & medical industry is expected to drive the market across regions. North America is estimated to lead the global UHMW PE market in 2016. The Asia-Pacific UHMW PE market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021, owing to the increasing demand for medical devices from countries, such as China, Japan, and India.

Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Market

Crude oil is the main raw material used to manufacture UHMW PE, and in the recent past crude oil prices have been fluctuating, which is expected to adversely affect the global UHMW PE market.
