PEX (Crossed-Linked Polyethylene) Market

Dow Chemical Company (US) and Borealis AG (Austria) are the Leading Players in the PEX (Crossed-Linked Polyethylene) Market

The global PEX market size is estimated at USD 6.1 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 8.3 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.0% between 2019 and 2024. PEX is a type of polyethylene that consists of numerous cross-links resulting in the formation of a three-dimensional network of high molecular weight compound. The molecular bonds that result in cross-linking improve many properties of polyethylene such as heat deformation, abrasion, chemical, and stress crack resistance. Therefore, PEX, with its superior properties as compared to copper or CPVC, is gaining market share in the plumbing as well as in the wires & cables application. The use of PEX in manufacturing automobile parts and battery cables in the transmission and power distribution channels is driving the global PEX market in the automotive application. Moreover, the solar industry is expected to be a major factor in driving the PEX market in the future, with producers continuously looking to replace the conventional materials.

The key players in the PEX market are The Dow Chemical Company (US), Borealis AG (Austria), Solvay (Belgium), LyondellBasell (Netherlands), ExxonMobil Corporation (US), PolyOne Corporation (US), 3H Vinacom Co., Ltd. (Vietnam), Falcone Specialities AG (Switzerland), Hanwha Chemical Corporation (South Korea), and HDC Hyundai EP (South Korea).
