Global polyolefins (PO) market is projected to reach $ 298 billion by 2024, exhibiting growth at a CAGR of around 8% during forecast period. The market is fueled by growing demand from packaging, plastic, building & construction and transportation end-use industries. Moreover, increasing demand for plastic products in film & sheet, injection molding, extrusion coating, blow molding, and other applications is further pushing demand for polyolefins globally. Global polyolefins market can be broadly categorized into type, catalyst, application and region. Based on catalyst, the market has been categorized into Ziegler-Natta Pe, Chromium Pe, Metallocene Pe and others. Based on type, the market is segmented as polypropylene, polethylene (HPDE, MDPE, LLDPE, LDPE), functional polyolefins and others. Among these, polethylene is the most widely used polymer in the plastic industry owing to easy availability and inexpensive processing techniques as compared to other polymers.

Based on application, the market is segmented as injection molding, blow molding, film & sheet, fibers & raffia, compounding and others. Among these, film & sheet is the largest end-use application of PO owing to increasing use of films in construction, food & non-food packaging, automobile and solar energy. Notably, PO materials such as polethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) are anticipated to witness high demand in the film & sheet application.

Regionally, the market has been segmented as North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific region leads the market owing to growing population and increasing demand for plastic products in the region. Moreover, growing demand for high-quality PO products with superior physical properties is significantly fueling the growth of the region’s process industry, which is subsequently propelling the demand for PO across the region.
