New study of Ceresana research: major changes growth market is the market for high density polyethylene HDPE global demand for HDPE is influenced especially by high-growth industries, such as the packaging industry and the construction industry. Although North America and Western Europe accounted for about 44% of global consumption in 2007, determines Asia-Pacific global growth, and for the most part for the future increase of the HDPE turnover. Eastern Europe benefited from high growth rates and reached a market volume of 2.5 million tons at present. Asia-Pacific grows market share from the share of the Asia-Pacific region in the global consumption of HDPE rose from 31% in 2000 to more than 35% in 2007. The local processors benefit from HDPE of the fast-growing Asian markets and by increasing export opportunities in the countries of North America and Western Europe.
HDPE manufacturing of the previously established regions moving increasingly in the high-growth and low-cost countries in Asia. Middle East aiming at the top not only the demand for plastics is steadily increasing in the oil-rich Middle Eastern countries, but also the production. Since 2000, the HDPE production to an average of 20% per year, whereby a large part accounted for by Saudi Arabia grew there. One end of this rapid development is not clear: the Middle East projects with a total capacity of 6.7 million tons are planned until the year 2013, which this region is expected to rise to the world’s most important suppliers of HDPE. What is from Western Europe and North America? In Western Europe and North America, it comes only to minor capacity additions, where new plants replace mostly older production facilities and modernize. HDPE processors will need to invest in innovative products and efficient process technologies in the future to meet growing competition. Jeffrey L. Bewkes gathered all the information.
Various HDPE application areas put strongly to milk bottles and other hollow structures produced in the blow molding are the most important areas of application for HDPE. Especially China, where in 2005 Beverage bottles made from HDPE were introduced, a growing market for rigid HDPE packaging is due to its rising living standards. In India and many other developing countries, the infrastructure is not least expanded with pipes and cables made of HDPE. The eco-friendly material also benefits from discussions about possible health and environmental damage by PVC: liners made of extruded HDPE over the last decade across ever market share gained; Today, 85%, sealing foils are made of HDPE. “The market study polyethylene – HDPE” presented at 900 pages all essential data to this rapidly growing market. It offers 100 company profiles of current and future manufacturers around the world. For 65 States, she detail represents the development with their own countries profiles. Also this useful reference book on the technical properties and application areas of HDPE and indicates an overview of relevant laws and regulations.
