Polyolefin Market was valued at USD 249.5 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a 4.8% CAGR from 2023 to 2029. Polyolefins are manufactured from natural gas & oil by the polymerization of ethylene and propylene. The polyolefin is made from monomers, hydrocarbons, and olefins which has high processability level, prolonged durability, and chemical stability. Polyolefins are the thermoplastic polymers, used in various applications such as packaging, consumer goods, fibers & textiles. Increasing population and rapid industrialization are expected to drive the demand for polyolefins market. In addition, the use of plastic materials is increasing due to the growing food and general packaging industries which is expected to drive the growth of the polyolefins market over the forecast years. In addition, polyolefins are also used in the automotive industries for the manufacturing of interior and exterior parts owing to their high strength, low weight, and durability. Thus, growing demand for lightweight vehicles for fuel efficiency are expected to boost the growth of polyolefin market over the forecast period. Furthermore, growing use of polyolefins in the manufacture of pipes, roofing membranes, and insulation materials owing to their chemical stability along with rowing construction industry is anticipated to boost the growth of polyolefin market over the forecast period. However, the restriction in the use of plastics, strict regulations, and rising environmental concern regarding the use of plastics are expected to hinder the growth of polyolefin market in the forecast years. Moreover, technological advancement and growing trend of using sustainable polyolefins and such as biobased and biodegradable polyolefins are expected to provide opportunity to the market players in the growth of polyolefin market over the forecast years. Geographically, Asia Pacific region held the major market share in 2022 and is expected to dominate the global polyolefin market in the forecasted years.
