BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated the India High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) market size at USD 1.97 billion in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, BlueWeave expects the India High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) market size to grow at a significant CAGR of 5.8% reaching a value of USD 2.76 billion by 2029. Major growth drivers for the India High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) market include the rising demand for HDPE pipes in agriculture due to corrosion resistance, crucial for water supply and irrigation. This surge is linked to the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY). Domestic refiners’ expansion plans also fuel the HDPE sector. Demand for diverse HDPE products like containers and insulation further boosts the market. HDPE’s applications go beyond agriculture, including blow molding for plastics in automotive, packaging, and sports. Its adaptability and advantageous properties make it a preferred choice. However, fluctuating raw material prices are anticipated to restrain the overall market growth during the period in analysis.
India High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Market – Overview
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a thermoplastic form of polyethylene derived from sources, including naphtha, natural gas, and gas oil. The production of each kilogram of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) necessitates the consumption of approximately 1.75 kilograms of petroleum, encompassing both energy and raw materials. Its density ranges from 0.93 g/cm³ to 0.97 g/cm³. This relatively elevated density results in minimal branching within high-density polyethylene’s molecular structure, leading to heightened intermolecular forces and tensile strength. The increase in strength surpasses the variation in density, conferring upon high-density polyethylene a superior specific strength.
Impact of COVID-19 on India High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Market
COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the India High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) market. Supply chain disruptions, reduced industrial activities, and fluctuating demand characterized this period. Lockdown measures and economic uncertainties hindered production and consumption, affecting sectors heavily reliant on HDPE, such as packaging, construction, and automotive. Nonetheless, the market displayed resilience due to HDPE’s essential applications in healthcare, sanitation, and packaging for essential goods. As the situation stabilized, a gradual recovery was observed, driven by the resumption of industrial operations and adaptation to evolving consumer demands. This period underscored the importance of supply chain resilience and diversified applications in future market strategies.
