Polyolefins Market Size is projected to reach USD 505 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 13%: Straits Research


The global polyolefins market size was worth USD 172 billion in 2021. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 505 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 13% during the projected period (2022-2030). The Asia-Pacific dominated the market. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 47165 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 13%.

New York, United States, July 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Polyolefin is a high-molecular-weight hydrocarbon made from hydrocarbons, olefins, and monomers. High processability, extended durability, and chemical stability are only a few of the benefits of polyolefin. Polyolefins are majorly used in plastics, accounting for two-thirds of total demand.

The qualities of polyolefins, such as temperature resistance, chemical resistance, and high impact strength, are one of the reasons for their increased popularity. Furthermore, polyolefins are commonly used in plastics and flexible plastic items. Again, the global lockdown imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a higher prevalence of e-commerce platforms, allowing for home delivery and increasing demand for consumer packing. As a result, the polyolefins market is expected to rise in 2020.

Rise in Deployment of Renewable Energy to Drive the Global Polyolefins Market

Many countries are focused on long-term development and attempting to raise renewable energy's share of overall energy consumption and generation. Due to enormous investments to satisfy climate change goals, European countries lead in the renewable energy sector. Brazil, Japan, Turkey, China, the United States, and Australia are also contributing to the growth of the renewable energy sector. Furthermore, increased investment in the renewable energy sector reduces energy generation's reliance on coal.

The demand for polyolefins has increased as the focus has shifted to developing renewable energy infrastructure and equipment. Polyolefin-based products are used in many appliances that produce renewable energy infrastructure or equipment. The United States is one of the world's largest hydropower producers, with portions of the Pacific Northwest relying on hydropower for up to 70% of their electricity.

Polystyrene and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) are also being utilized to replace metal junction boxes in solar energy production. Furthermore, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) is used to make large-diameter solid wall conduits, which are used to protect electrical lines and the environment in wind farms. These variables work together to improve renewable energy deployment and, as a result, polyolefin demand.

Expansion of Food Sector in Emerging Economies to Provide Opportunities for the Global Polyolefins Market

Polyolefins are utilized in the food industry as a packaging material because they are nonpolar, odorless, and nonporous. Food packaging commonly uses polyolefins such as high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), isotactic polypropylene (PP), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), and various polyethylene-based copolymers. Polyolefin films are relatively affordable and have better moisture and gas barrier qualities than other materials.

They are also heat resistant and prevent food from leaking. They also contribute less weight to the container and fit the shape of the food perfectly, requiring less storage and delivery space. The food sector is rising in emerging economies like China and India as the population grows. The rapid growth of the food industry will eventually increase demand for packaging materials, which will provide lucrative chances for the worldwide polyolefins market to expand in emerging economies.

Key Highlights

  • The global polyolefins market was worth USD172 billion in 2021. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 505 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 13% during the projected period (2022-2030).
  • By type, the market is divided into polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), and polystyrene (PS). The polyethylene segment dominated the market. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 333315 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 12%. Polyethylene is gaining high traction in the global market, owing to a rapid expansion of the food sector in developing nations like China and India and the development of the renewable energy sector. This is accredited to the fact that polyethylene is widely used in the packaging of foods.
  • The polypropylene segment is the second-largest market. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 225300 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 15%. Polypropylene demand is skyrocketing because of the increased demand for syringes, medical vials, and test bottles. This is due to expanded vaccination programs in nations like Israel, the United States, and India due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
  • The polystyrene segment is the third-largest market. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 9625 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 12%. The primary reasons for the growth of the polystyrene market are high adoption in insulation applications and increased adoption in automotive applications.
  • By applications, the market is segregated into film & sheet, injection molding, blow molding, profile extrusion, and others. The film & sheet segment dominated the market. It is estimated to reach an expected USD 198175 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 13%. The primary reason contributing to the market growth is a surge in demand for bi-axially oriented polyolefins films. On the contrary, a rise in the use of plastic films and sheets in agriculture and an increase in demand for specialty films is anticipated to offer potential growth opportunities for market expansion.
  • Injection molding is the second-largest segment. It is estimated to reach an expected USD 154050 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 13%. Some of the factors increasing demand for polyolefin in injection molding are fast manufacturing, high efficiency in terms of the number of parts produced per hour, low labor costs, design flexibility, high-output production, enhanced strength of plastic products, and product consistency.
  • Profile extrusion is the third-largest segment. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 92050 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 12%. It has numerous advantages such as relatively low tooling costs, equipment widely available in all geographical regions, economical process, different product combinations, and design freedom.

Regional Insights

By region, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Asia-Pacific dominated the global market. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 47165 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 13%. This is attributed to countries such as China, India, and Japan, as these countries have established and developed consumer bases in the electronics manufacturing and construction sector. The outbreak of COVID-19 in China hampered the polyolefins market intensively as it is one of the major consumers of polyolefins. This is attributed to industries such as packaging, toy manufacturing, construction industry, and automotive.

Europe is the second-largest region. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 7580 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 7%. Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, and the rest of Europe are all examined. Due to the rise of the packaging and automotive industries, Germany is one of the leading consumers of polyolefins. The pandemic of COVID-19 has caused lockdown in numerous European countries, resulting in panic buying of consumer commodities such as food, health, and hygiene products. Polyolefins were in high demand in the packaging industry due to this. Other sectors where polyolefins are widely utilized, such as automotive and construction, are experiencing a decline in performance, resulting in a fall in polyolefin demand in 2020.

North America is the third largest region. It is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 8085 million by 2030 at a CAGR of 12%. In the continent of North America, plastic is widely used in the packaging, construction, automotive, and electrical and electronics industries, and it is a significant market driver. Furthermore, the demand for packing rose due to the COVID-19 pandemic, owing to the rising prevalence of e-commerce platforms.

In addition, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic increased the demand for polyolefins in the healthcare sector. The rise in vaccine development during the global health crisis has boosted demand for polypropylene, which makes syringes, vials, and specimen bottles.
