India Metallocene linear low-density polyethylene (mLLDPE) Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Process, Technology, Demand & Supply, Grade, Application, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Aug 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] India Metallocene linear low-density polyethylene (mLLDPE) market demand stood at 228.91 Thousand Tonnes in FY2021 and is forecast to reach 381.19 Thousand Tonnes by FY2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 6.15% until FY2030. mLLDPE’s unmatched quality and superior film performance make it a highly reliable choice for downstream packaging sectors, thereby contributing to its exceptional growth in the India Polyethylene market. Due to its outstanding properties like high flexibility and elasticity, mLLDPE is finding strong applications particularly in producing stretch wrap films, agricultural films, and food packaging films.
Metallocene LLDPE resins are well recognized for their excellent dart impact and puncture resistance, lightweight, superior organoleptic properties, brilliant clarity, and outstanding hot tack and heat seal benefits. There has been a tremendous rise in mLLDPE packaging film demand from the country’s strongly growing food, beverages, and medical sectors. Moreover, increasing demand for shrink wraps and heavy-duty shipping sacks will drive the mLLDPE demand during the forecast period. mLLDPE resin is also blended or coextruded with other Polyethylene resins for manufacturing agricultural films. Increasing investments by the government of India towards the development of its agriculture sector, are likely to boost the demand for mLLDPE in the years to come.
These days, retailers and consumers are opting for more sustainable films made from fewer resources and at the same time do not want to compromise on the performance of the packaging material. mLLDPE can satisfy these seemingly conflicting requirements of the consumers, allowing for significant down-gauging opportunities.
Currently, India’s mLLDPE industry is relatively dull due to bearish buying sentiments on the back of a wider price gap between C4 LLDPE and C6 mLLDPE in India. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision and prevalent echoes on establishing a self-reliant country through the “Make in India” scheme shall enable the mLLDPE market to register a significant spike in its yearly growth sooner than expected. 
The COVID-19 outbreak across the world which has been declared as a pandemic by World Health Organization has affected several countries adversely. Leading authorities in India imposed lockdown restrictions and released a set of precautionary measures to contain the spread of novel coronavirus. Manufacturing units were temporarily shut down and disruption in the supply chain was observed which led to the market decline. However, after the covid period, the market is expected to pick up the pace eventually.
Currently, GAIL India Ltd. and RIL are the only producers of mLLDPE in India, making the country’s total installed mLLDPE capacity to 550 KTPA as of the financial year 2020. Other international players operating in the India mLLDPE market include ExxonMobil Corporation, The Dow Chemical Company, Braskem, China Petrochemical Corporation (CPC), Mitsui & Co., INEOS, LyondellBasell Industries Holdings B.V., and Nova Chemicals Corporation.
The mLLDPE prices in India were pushed up to around $1,260-1,280/tonne CIF India in Q4FY20 due to trade restrictions throughout Southeast Asia due to COVID-19 related uncertainties. mLLDPE prices are likely to get higher in the next two quarters, triggered by a tight supply situation and increasing demand in the downstream sectors as the Indian economy heads towards recovery after the strong blows of the pandemic. Moreover, the recent plunge in crude oil and naphtha values due to the coronavirus outbreak has resulted in a significant slump in mLLDPE feedstock costs and hence, players are likely to enjoy better margins and anticipating their annual profits to increase beyond their expectations.
