[Online Quarterly Update] Metallocene Linear Low Density Polyethene (mLLDPE) witnessed a strong demand in 2019 and is anticipated to achieve an impressive CAGR of 5.75% during the forecast period. mLLDPE has replaced other polyolefins as it offers significant performance advantages over like superior toughness, sealing performance improvements along with improved optics. Major application of this product is in packaging sector attributing to excellent impact and puncture resistance. mLLDPE is used in fabrication of high-performance film which is used for various application such as food and medical packaging, heavy duty sack etc.
Metallocene Linear Low Density Polyethene is produced using metallocene with Ziegler catalyst. Although mLLDPE was introduced many years ago but it failed to get the popularity in the market due to high cost. Withstanding the challenges, manufacturers are now producing low cost mLLDPE, using modern fabricating equipment which has optimized the process and increased the output thereby, resulting in low cost product. This endeavour has succeeded as currently millions of tons of metallocene resins produced enjoy more robust growth than conventional plastics. Owing to high mechanical strength, better barrier properties & elasticity, it is employed in manufacturing of laminating sheet. Laminating packing is better than single film because laminating improve the strength of material by making it more resistance to tearing, punching etc. Moreover, introduction of co extruded sealant film is anticipated to increase the demand of mLLDPE in the forecasted period. Growing concern of people on their health and wellness has led to a growth in demand for packed food products including fruits and vegetables, resulting in a further surge in the demand for flexible mLLDPE packaging.
Other applications of mLLDPE include consumer goods- housewares, flexible toys, agricultural films and wiring cables. U.S. is the leading producer of mLLDPE whereas Asia Pacific region is the leading consumer of mLLDPE, including countries like China, India, South Korea and Japan. Growing market of packaging industries in these regions are expected to increase the demand of mLLDPE in the forecasted period.
