The polyolefins market was valued at $133.9 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $444.2 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 12.6% from 2021 to 2028.

Polyolefin is a high molecular-weight hydrocarbon, which is manufactured from hydrocarbon, olefin, or monomers. Polyolefin exhibit properties such as high processability, prolonged durability, and superior chemical stability. In addition, it is resistant to chemicals at room temperature.
Polyolefins are majorly used in plastics production, holding two-thirds share of plastics demand. One of the factors responsible for increase in adoption of polyolefins are their properties such as temperature resistance, chemical resistance, and high impact strength. Furthermore, polyolefins majorly find their application in plastics and flexible plastic products. In addition, the global lockdown due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic led to increase in penetration of the e-commerce platforms, which enabled home deliveries, thereby augmenting the demand for consumer packaging. This consequently increased the demand of polyolefins in 2020.
The global polyolefins market is segmented into type, application, and region. By type, the market is segregated into polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), and polystyrene (PS). The applications covered in the market include film & sheet, injection molding, blow molding, profile extrusion, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
