The LLDPE market is estimated to be USD 51.89 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 67.83 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2017 to 2022. The rising demand for LLDPE from various end-use industries, such as solar power and packaging, is one of the most significant factors driving the growth of the LLDPE market. The increase in demand for metallocene-catalyzed LLDPE in the Asia Pacific region and the expansion of the plastics industry worldwide are additional factors influencing the growth of the LLDPE market.

The LLDPE market has been segmented on the basis of process type, application, and region. Based on process type, the gas phase segment is projected to lead the LLDPE market from 2017 to 2022. The growth of the gas phase segment can be attributed to the increasing use of commercial gas phase process for LLDPE production, owing to its distinct advantages as compared to the commercial slurry and solution processes.

The films segment is the largest application segment of the LLDPE market, followed by the injection molding segment. The growth of the LLDPE market in films application is primarily driven by the demand for LLDPE films from the packaging sector. The growth of the injection molding segment can be attributed to the increasing demand for injection-molded LLDPE articles, such as crates, pallets, packaging containers and caps, household goods, and toys, from various end-use industries.

Asia Pacific is the largest and the fastest-growing regional segment of the LLDPE market. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for packaging films from the food & beverages industry.  North America is the second-largest regional segment of the LLDPE market, followed by Europe.

Leading players operating in the LLDPE market have adopted key growth strategies, such as mergers & acquisitions, expansions, new product launches, and agreements to enhance their market presence. Manufacturers of LLDPE resins are also focused on collaborating with key market players and increasing investments in R&D activities to develop new grades of LLDPE. This, in turn, has helped LLDPE manufacturers widen their geographic reach and expand their customer base.

Rising concerns pertaining to plastic disposal are acting as a restraint to the growth of the LLDPE market. Sinopec (China), LyondellBasell (Netherlands), Exxon Mobil (US), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), The Dow Chemical Company (US), Borealis (Austria), Formosa Plastics (Taiwan), INEOS (Switzerland), and Westlake Chemical (US) are leading players operating in the LLDPE market. Companies have adopted strategies, such as expansions and acquisitions, to address the growing demand for LLDPE worldwide.
