The low-density polyethylene (LDPE) market consists of sales of low-density polyethylene and related services which are used in the manufacturing of different products such as packaging materials, trash bins, floor tiles, shipping envelopes, dropper bottles. Low-Density Polyethylene is resistant to moisture and chemicals and it is non-toxic, non-contaminating in nature, flexible, and relatively transparent. It is used to make many thin and flexible products such as plastic bags for dry-cleaning, newspapers, and others.

The manufacturing process of low-density polyethylene is the autoclave method, tubular method. Autoclaving is a sterilization method that will use high-pressure steam. The autoclaving process works in that the boiling point of water increases when it is under pressure. The applications are film and sheets, extrusion coatings, injection molding, and other applications. The end-use industries are agriculture, electrical and electronics, packaging, construction, and other end-use industries.

The global low-density polyethylene market size is expected to grow from $42.02 billion in 2021 to $46.74 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.2%. The global LDPE market size is expected to grow to $69.56 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 10.5%.

The increasing demand for LDPE in the packaging industry is expected to boost the growth of the LDPE market. LDPE is being increasingly used for food packaging and non-food items packaging. Use of LDPE in packaging decrease the cost of packaging. Also, LDPE has the properties of having good tensile strength and is flexible which makes the process of packaging easy. LDPE is commonly used in food packaging to manufacturing coffee can lids, bread bags, fruit and vegetable bags used in grocery stores. It is also used in non-food packagings such as in shipping sacks, bubble packing, envelopes, overwrap, and rack and counter bags. According to the American Plastics Council (APC), LDPE accounts for 65.5 percent of the total plastic film used in the packaging of food items whereas it accounts for 54.9 percent of the total plastic film used in the packaging of non-food items. The increase in demand for packaging accelerates the demand for LDPE used as a packaging material.

The increasing popularity of Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) is expected to restrict the growth of the low-density polyethylene (LDPE) market. Linear Low-Density Polyethylene acts as a substitute to low-density polyethylene with additional benefits such as high tensile strength and a higher degree of resistance from UV rays and other environmental factors when compared to the LDPE. According to an article by Plastivision, by 2023 the demand for LDPE for kitchen appliances is expected to reach 1.2 million metric tons only, whereas the demand for LLDPE for the making of industrial containers is expected to reach 3 million metric tons. Thus, the market for LDPE is negatively impacted owing to the high tensile strength and more flexibility offered by LLDPE as compared to LDPE.

The production of bio-derived polyethylene is being widely adopted by companies in the low-density polyethylene market as a substitute for chemically synthesized polyethylene. Low-density polyethylene, like other plastics, is chemically synthesized and release harmful toxins in the environment when burned and is difficult to decompose thus harming the environment. Companies involved in the LDPE market are investing in finding sustainable options for chemical plastics called bioplastics. These bio-plastics mimic the robustness and durability of conventional plastics such as LDPE and degrade in the open air. For instance, Braskem a Brazilian petrochemical company headquartered in São Paulo launched its "I'm greenTM Polyethylene" under its campaign "I'm greenTM ". I'm greenTM Polyethylene is a bio-derived polyethylene produced from sugarcane and is 100 percent renewable. In 2019, the company added more products to its "I'm greenTM" including post-Consumer-Recycled (PCR) resins, mixed bio-based plastic, and other PCR solutions.

In 2019, ProMach, a packaging machinery company headquartered in Covington, Kentucky, acquired Grip-Pak for an undisclosed amount. Through the acquisition, ProMach aims to expand its product line by utilizing LDPE handle solutions. Grip-Pak is a U.S based provider of 100% recyclable, photodegradable, and FDA-compliant low-density polyethylene (LDPE) ring carriers made in the United States.

Major players in the low-density polyethylene market are Formosa Plastics Corporation, Dow Chemical Company, BASF SE, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, DuPont de Nemours, LG Chem, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Reliance Industries Ltd, and LyondellBasell Industries.

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

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