The ethylene-petrochemicals market consists of sales of ethylene and its related services.

The main feedstocks of ethylene are naphtha, ethane, propane, butane, and other feedstocks. Ethane is defined as an odorless, gaseous, and colorless hydrocarbon compound. Ethane is considered to be the simplest hydrocarbon compound containing a single carbon-carbon bond. The various applications of ethylene include polyethylene, ethylene oxide, ethylene benzene, ethylene dichloride, vinyl acetate, and alpha-olefins. The main end-use industries in which ethylene is used are packaging, automotive, construction, agrochemical, and textile.

The global ethylene-petrochemicals market size is expected to grow from $92.26 billion in 2021 to $96.54 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6%. The global ethylene-petrochemical market size is expected to grow to $114.45 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 4.3%..

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 National Geographic (2020), 40% of the plastic produced every year is single-use plastics. Production of plastic is expected to double by 2050. 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, in June 2021, Braskem, a Brazil-based biopolymer producer, launched the world’s first renewably-sourced polyethylene wax. This can be used for producing coatings, cosmetics, adhesives, and various other compounds.

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