Historical Surge: Polyethylene Demand

  1. Polythene Products Driving Force: During the historic period, the surge in demand for polythene products significantly contributed to the growth of the ethylene-petrochemicals market.
  2. Polyethylene’s Ubiquity: Ethylene’s primary utilization in polyethylene products, including low-density polyethylene (LDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), played a pivotal role. The global demand for plastic, especially in electronic products and lightweight vehicle components, spurred the growth of polyethylene.
  3. Plastic Proliferation: National Geographic (2020) highlights that 40% of annually produced plastic is single-use plastics, and plastic production is projected to double by 2050. This surge in plastic demand fueled the growth of the ethylene market, influencing the production and adoption of polyethylene products.



Industry Titans: Key Players Shaping the Landscape

Major players influencing the ethylene-petrochemicals market include AkzoNobel, BASF SE, Borealis, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC., China Petrochemical Corporation, China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation, Clariant, Dow Chemical, Equistar Chemicals, and Exxon Mobil Corporation.



Green Innovations: Bio-Based Polyethylene

  1. Strategic Investments in Green Solutions: Ethylene-producing companies are strategically investing in the development of bio-based green polyethylene compounds.
  2. Benefits of Bio-Based Plastics: These bio-based plastics offer advantages such as ease of production, lower energy consumption, and the same versatility as chemically synthesized plastic.
  3. Leading Example: Braskem’s Renewably-Sourced Polyethylene Wax: In June 2021, Braskem, a Brazil-based biopolymer producer, unveiled the world’s first renewably-sourced polyethylene wax. This innovation is applicable in coatings, cosmetics, adhesives, and various other compounds, marking a significant step towards sustainable plastic production.
