Polyethylene was the largest end use segment in the global ethylene market in 2015 on account of increasing demand for safe and high quality packaging material from various sectors such as food & beverage, pharmaceuticals and chemicals. Moreover, increasing application of ethylene derivatives such as ethylene oxide, for manufacturing high quality plastic and disposable plastic products, in automobile sector and PET market is expected to fuel the demand for ethylene, globally. Rising demand for ethylene derivatives such as polyethylene (PE) and ethylene dichloride can be attributed to their increasing application across plastic manufacturing industry. In 2014, the global plastic materials (thermoplastics and polyurethanes) production stood at 260 million metric tons. Asia-Pacific accounted for a share of around 46% in the overall plastics material production, while China alone controlled 26% of the global plastic materials production.
