Region :Global | Report ID: FBI108088 | Status : Ongoing



Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is a lightweight and flexible plastic type. The high temperature and corrosion-resistant properties help drive the growth of the LDPE packaging market. The growing demand for electrical appliances throughout the globe will contribute to the growth of this market. The demand for plastic cultivation films is increasing for the cultivation of crops, and the thermal resistance of LDPE that makes it suitable to sustain in extremely high and low temperatures will foster the growth of LDPE packaging in the agricultural sector.

  • For instance, in August 2022, Veolia collaborated with Miracle-Gro and Dobbies Garden Centres to collect the post-consumer LDPE bags and recycle them to make garden products like plastic films, furniture, and bags.

Using LDPE in lining water conservation projects, ponds, and chemical tanks to prevent leakages propels the growth of the LDPE packaging market. LDPE has extensive use in the packaging of products as it is flexible and can handle much stretching. In addition, an increase in the demand for product safety during the storage and transport of products will boost the growth of this market. The growing concern for using sustainable and recycled products will help fuel the growth of the LDPE packaging market. The e-commerce industry is growing so is the demand for flexible packaging. Along with this, the surging demand for using bubble wraps to protect the product from damage will foster the growth of the LDPE packaging market.

Recycling LDPE products makes them contaminated, and using recycled products in the agricultural industry will harm the crops and limit the growth of the LDPE packaging market. LDPE is plastic that harms the environment, and the stringent government laws and regulations to limit the use of plastic material will restrict the growth of this market. LDPE is not very stiff and rigid and gets torn when stretched more, which gives a better edge to its substitute and hampers the growth of the LDPE packaging market.


COVID-19 has impacted every industry differently. Even after the strict lockdowns and bans on imports & exports, some industries have seen positive growth. The food & beverages, personal care & cosmetics industry has seen negative growth due to disruption in the supply chain and closed restaurants. Agriculture has seen moderate growth because there were no restrictions on agricultural activities, so there was no such impact of covid on this industry. Furthermore, there was a sharp increase in the growth of the healthcare industry as it was a medical emergency. However, there is a rapid demand for electronic products after COVID-19 and will see positive growth.
