Global Ethylene Market Report 2022: Growing Gardening Industry Bolsters Sector –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Added Global Ethylene Market (By Production Capacity & Demand): Insights & Forecast with Potential Impact of COVID-19 (2023-2027) report Offer.

Global ethylene demand is projected to reach 244.67 million tonnes in 2027, growing at a CAGR of 1.82% for the period 2023-2027. Factors such as an increase in consumer goods sales, a growing gardening industry, an escalating rate of packaging, rising consumption of alcoholic beverages, and rapid urbanization would drive the growth of the market.

However, market growth would be challenged by fluctuations in ethylene prices, hazardous effects of ethylene oxide, and strict government regulations. Some notable trends may include increasing ethylene dichloride production capacity, growing petrochemical industry, and increasing demand for bio-based polyethylene.

The global ethylene market is heavily focused and concentrated on the production of polyethylene. Most of the ethylene produced is used for the development of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE) due to the growing demand from various end-use industries such as construction, automotive, packaging and others. Additionally, ethylene oxide is another major component derived from ethylene that is likely to occupy a significant share of the world market in the years to come.

The fastest growing regional market was the US due to the continued addition of new capacity through the installation of new ethylene crackers. In addition, in the past decade, China has become a leading region due to significant petrochemical industry development initiatives and policies by the Chinese government. Both regions have held significant shares and would continue to be the leading players in the global ethylene market during the forecast period.
