Metallocene Polyethylene Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Product (mLLDPE, mHDPE, Others), By Application (Films, Sheets, Injection Moulding, Extrusion Coating, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102925 | Status : Ongoing



Metallocene Polyethylene, also known as mPE, is a special type of thermoplastic made by using metallocene catalyst with copolymers. It exhibits properties like uniform co-monomer content, narrow molecular weight distribution, higher resistance to puncture & damage, high toughness, tensile strength and stiffness. The use of metallocene catalyst allows the manufacturer to introduce desirable properties in the product according to the specific applications. mPE is being used for producing films, sheets, injection moulding, extrusion coating and others.

Rise in demand from the packaging, food & beverages, and automotive industries shall propel the metallocene polyethylene market size. Packaging applications include crates, trays, bottles, juice bottles, caps for food packaging, drums, industrial bulk vessels etc. In order to maintain the hygiene quotient and shelf-life of food products & other goods, there has been a substantial growth in the usage of packaging which in turn is driving the mPE market.

Key Market Driver -

Increase in demand from plastic and packaging industries.
