Porous Polyethylene Market size was valued at USD 136.5 million in 2023 and is poised to grow at a 7.1% CAGR from 2024 to 2030. Porous polyethylene is a thermoplastic synthetic with a pore size ranging from about 100 μm to 200 μm. In addition to other materials, it is also used for alloplastic replacement of auditory ossicles, porous polyethylene is mainly used in healthcare in the production of dressing disposal bags which are made up of high-density plastic, to collect and dispose of wound dressings which increase the market growth. The technological advancement in polyethylene over the past decade in the production of custom-made implants and improvement in congenital effects are the major factor that drives the market growth.

The porous polyethylene delivers nearly endless versatility applications in various industries such as microchip manufacturing, electroplating, and zero liquid discharge systems. Due to their durability, low cost, and effectiveness, it is expected to create lucrative opportunities in the market. Working with porous polyethylene is a major challenge; when porous particles come in contact with heated fumes, it may irritate the eye, skin, and respiratory system. In addition, contact with hot molten material may cause severe thermal burns and blindness. It is majorly used in implants, which sometimes causes adverse side effects that might hinder market growth. 

Porous Polyethylene Market Key Developments:

In July 2020, Dow Chemicals and Thong Guan will collaborate on a new line of bio-based polyethylene products to meet the rapidly expanding demand for the material in the Asia Pacific area.
