Key Trends in Asia Pacific High Density Polyethylene Market

Asia Pacific accounted for a share of more than 40.0% in 2014, emerging as the largest market for high density polyethylene. This region is also projected to become the fastest developing market by 2023 in terms of both consumption and production. Here are a few major factors driving the APAC high density polyethylene market.

  • Growth in the APAC high density polyethylene market can be mainly attributed to surge in agricultural and industrial activities.
  • Rapid economic development in the region has made Asia Pacific a rather attractive destination for high density polyethylene.
  • The rising usage of plastic packaging in Asia Pacific has greatly boosted the demand for high density polyethylene.
  • Thanks to growing demand for high density polyethylene, leading manufacturers have begun focusing on capacity expansion in the APAC region to cater to the rising need.
  • There has been a surge in construction and building activities in the region, especially in countries such as India, China, and Indonesia, further augmenting the demand for high density polyethylene.

Since leading producers are involved in upstream activities, the global market for high density polyethylene exhibits a greater degree of backward integration.
