Global Ethylene Market Outlook to 2023 - The Decreasing Use of Plastics Poses a Serious Challenge - ResearchAndMarkets.com

February 7, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 7, 2019--The “Global Ethylene Market 2019-2023” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The ethylene market will register a CAGR of close to 4% by 2023.

Emergence of bio-ethylene to drive market growth

Ethylene is one of the basic organic commodity chemicals. It is used as a feedstock for several downstream chemical products and is the largest bulk chemical (in terms of volume) to produce plastics across the globe. However, fluctuating prices of crude oil and depleting resources fossil fuels drive the need for biochemical routes for producing ethylene.

Growth in the flexible packaging industry

One of the major drivers of the global ethylene market is the increasing demand for packaging materials from the food and beverages industry and other industries such as consumer goods, electronics, and pharmaceuticals. LDPE and LLDPE are extensively used in flexible packaging. It is used in a variety of applications such as food and beverages, consumer products and medical products.

Decreasing use of plastics

Environmental concerns regarding the use of plastic packaging for various applications will be a serious challenge to the global ethylene market. Ethylene is widely used in the packaging sector, and bans which imposed on plastic products can hamper the production of ethylene during the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

The market appears to be fragmented, and with the presence of several companies including DowDuPont and Exxon Mobil, the competitive environment is quite intense.

Key Players
