Limited imports from Asia and US hindered the supply fundamentals of mLLDPE in the European market. Several downstream producers were heard purchasing the cargoes at a premium rate to prevent any hurt to the consumer sentiments amidst firm demand for packaging material. Demand is likely to stay strong till the next quarter due to the prevailing optimism due to the scheduled launch of COVID-19 vaccine by year end. Supply for various Polyethylene is also anticipated to retrace its pace after the scheduled resumption of various manufacturing units presently under production turnaround.

Metallocene Linear Low-Density Polyethylene, commonly known as mLLDPE is a high performing grade of Polyethylene primarily used in industrial as well as food packaging applications. mLLDPE comprises several grades in the form of films such as agriculture greenhouse film, multi-layer caste stretch film, lamination packaging film and medium to heavy duty bags films. mLLDPE is many a times extruded with LLDPE to produce multilayer film barriers for beverage cartons. mLLDPE is conventionally produced by the copolymerization of Ethylene and 1-hexene in a low-pressure polymerization process in the presence metallocene as the prime catalyst. Metallocene catalysts are highly preferred to produced mLLDPE since they ideally direct the polymerization reactions. Moreover, resins manufactured using metallocene have better seal ability and impact strength in comparison to LLDPE manufactured through conventional process. Thus, mLLDPE is widely becoming popular with Polyethylene resin converters as it facilitates the production of much stronger films with enhanced properties.
