Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update]  Bimodal HDPE demand stood at 17.21 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 28.672 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 5.25% until 2030.
Bimodal HDPE is a type of HDPE that has both amorphous and crystalline regions. As a result, it benefits from the bimodality by having strength and stiffness of HDPE and high stress crack resistance and processability of a unimodal medium density polyethylene. It is a mixture of low molecular weight HDPE and High molecular weight HDPE. Bimodal HDPE has several properties including high mechanical strength, durability, chemical resistance, lightweight, etc. Major applications of bimodal HDPE are bimodal HDPE pipe, bimodal HDPE film, and bimodal HDPE blow molding. The end-user industries for bimodal HDPE are gas and water pipelines, detergent bottles, food storage containers, bottle caps, etc. Growing demand from the end-user industries such as gas and water pipelines, detergent bottles, and food storage containers is expected to drive the demand for bimodal HDPE for the forecast period. Moreover, the growing demand for biodegradable plastics is expected to hinder demand growth during the forecast period.
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on several industries. Detergents and cleaners were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand for bimodal HDPE for the first half of 2020. Therefore, the demand for bimodal HDPE grew during the coronavirus pandemic from the detergents and cleaners bottles segment due to increased awareness about health and hygiene.
Region-wise, the Asia-pacific region holds the major share of global demand for bimodal HDPE due to the increasing demand of application industries such as detergents and cleaners. Moreover, the increasing number of products using bimodal HDPE is another factor influencing demand growth in Asia-Pacific.
Major players for bimodal HDPE globally include The Dow Chemical Company, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), Exxon Mobil Corporation, Dynalab Corp., LyondellBasell Industries N.V., INEOS AG, SINOPEC Beijing Yanshan Company, PetroChina Company Ltd., Braskem, Formosa Plastics Corporation, Daelim Industrial Co. Ltd., Prime Polymer Co. Ltd. and Mitsui Chemicals Inc.
