The ethylene market consists of sales of ethylene and its related services. Ethylene is an acyclic hydrocarbon, used in the manufacture of polymers such as polyethylene (PE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polystyrene (PS) as well as fibers and other organic chemicals.

The main feedstock types of ethylene include naphtha, ethane, propane, butane, and other feedstock. Ethane is a colorless, odorless, gaseous hydrocarbon (compound of hydrogen and carbon), belonging to the paraffin series. Ethylene has various applications that include polyethylene, ethylene oxide, ethylene benzene, ethylene dichloride, vinyl acetate, and alpha-olefins. These are used in packaging, automotive, construction, agrochemical, and textile industries.

The global ethylene market is expected to grow from $113 billion in 2021 to $125.02 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.6%. The ethylene market is expected to grow to $161.61 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 6.6%.

During the historic period, increased demand for polythene products contributed to the ethylene market’s growth. Ethylene is mainly used in polyethylene products such as low-density polyethylene (LDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE). The polyethylene market has grown substantially due to the increased demand for plastic across the globe. The high penetration of plastics in electronic products and lightweight products in vehicles has increased the consumption of plastics. According to the American Chemistry Council, the production of plastic resins, which serve as the foundation for all plastic products, climbed 0.9 percent in the United States in 2020, compared to 1.2 percent in 2019. These factors that have driven the adoption of polyethylene, impacted the growth of the ethylene market.

Stringent government regulations related to the production and use of ethylene restrains the growth of the ethylene market. Ethylene is combustible and carcinogenic in nature making it dangerous to its environment. It is highly explosive and can cause light-headedness, dizziness, and unconsciousness when exposed. Several countries are implementing legislation for environmental protection, which will put pressure on the companies involved in the production of ethylene. For instance, in January 2020, a group of 364 environmental and other non-governmental organizations have filed a petition with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to revise standards applicable to petro-plastics production facilities. The petition requests EPA to impose unprecedented controls on such facilities. Moreover, globally, governments are banning single-use plastics to curb plastic waste. For instance, in January 2020, China announced its plans to ban single-use plastics and promote recycling and green packaging. The restrictions laid on production would hamper the growth of the market.

The ethylene-producing companies are investing in ways to develop bio-based green polyethylene compounds. These plastics are easy to produce, consume less energy, and offer the same versatility as chemically synthesized plastic. Following the trend, Braskem, a Brazil-based biopolymer producer, partnered with LEGO Group, a Danish toy production company, to supply it with I’m greenT polyethylene. I’m greenT polyethylene is a plastic made from sugarcane that is 100% recyclable and contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gases.

In August 2019, Huntsman Corporation agreed to sell its ethylene business to Indorama Ventures for $2 billion. This acquisition will add products such as ethylene, ethylene oxide, and monoethylene glycol, extending the product profile of Indorama Ventures and will strengthen the PET feedstock supply chain, and improve its position as a PET manufacturer. The deal gives Indorama Ventures access to a number of new derivative products, including propylene/PO derivatives, surfactants, ethanolamines, glycol ethers, and MTBE. Indorama Ventures is an intermediate petrochemicals industry.

Major players in the ethylene market are 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.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the ethylene market in 2021. The regions covered in the ethylene market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.

The countries covered in the ethylene market are Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Russia, the UK, the USA, and Australia.
