(Food-Beverage-News.Com, September 10, 2020 ) The report "Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Market by Form (Sheets, Rods & Tubes, Fibers, Films, Tapes), End-Use Industry (Aerospace, Defense & Shipping, Healthcare & Medical, Mechanical Equipment, Food & Beverages), Region - Global Forecast to 2025" in 2020 is estimated at USD 1.4 billion and is projected to reach USD 2.2 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2020 to 2025. The growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for UHMW PE from the aerospace & defense industry and increased demand for orthopedic implants. In addition Increasing R&D and mass production of ballistic fibers and compliance with various legal and administrative bodies is expected to create opprtuities in the market which is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to hamper the consumption of UHMW PE which affects the market growth.
Sheet segment is estimated to lead the UHMW PE market, during the foreast period
By form, the sheets segment is estimated to account for a major share of the UHMW PE market in 2019. This large share is mainly attributed to the extensive use of sheets in the aerospace, defense, & shipping industries for the manufacture of aircraft interiors & mechanical equipment industries for the manufacture of conveyer belts. Rods & tubes are the second most used form of UHMW PE used majorly in the mechanical equipment industry.
Healthcare & Medical is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of the UHMW PE market
Based on end-use industry, the healthcare & medical segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in 2019. In the healthcare & medical industry, there is a high demand for UHMW PE for the manufacture of orthopedic implants and parts for medical devices due to properties such as high strength to weight ratio, self-lubrication, and impact resistance.
