Covered in this report

According to procurement analysts, there is an increasing demand for polyethylene from the packaging industry. Polyethylene is used for both food and consumer packaging. The recent rise in income globally, combined with the growth in the number of middle-class consumers, is driving the consumption of goods that require plastic packaging. This trend is prominent in APAC, Africa, and Latin
America. For instance, the Indian packaging industry was valued at about US$32 billion in 2015 and is expected to grow to approximately US$73 billion in 2020.

One of the procurement best practices for buyers is to engage with suppliers that have good raw material supply chain associations. Buyers mainly include ethylene derivative manufacturers. The optimal operation of buyers' facilities and their capacity to compete effectively in the market depend on the uninterrupted availability of ethylene feedstock. Buyers should also select suppliers that have raw material supply contracts with multiple vendors so that a constant supply can be ensured. This is also essential as the raw materials for ethylene production come from the oil and gas industry, where the availability of product could vary depending on factors such as changes in regional regulatory policies, politics, and climate.
