Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) market size was valued at USD 1.8 billion in 2021 and expected to reach USD 2.9 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period 2022-28 . Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene market (UHMWPE) is an odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic polyethylene. It has all the characteristics of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), but with the added advantage of being resistant to acids, alkalis, and another organic solvent. UHMWPE is available in many shapes and form as per its use in various applications. The major segment contributing to the global UHMWPE market is the medical segment which accounts for almost 30% of the market share in 2016. The usage of UHMWPE is increasing more due to its suitable characteristics as an implant for orthopedic surgeries, which is increasing the demand of UHMWPE in the market. Increasing demand from the medical implant industry and increasing use of UHMWPE-based protection gear also high demand from North America will boost the growth of the ultrahigh molecular weight polythene (UHMWPE). However volatile prices of raw material will hinder the growth of the ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene market. The sheets segment is expected to account for the greatest share of the UHMW PE market in 2019 based on form. This substantial percentage can be attributable to the mechanical equipment industry’s extensive use of UHMW PE sheets. Due to rising demand from the healthcare and medical end-use industries, the segment is expected to rise at a faster CAGR from 2020 to 2025. Sheets are also in considerable demand in food processing plants, where vast numbers of containers like cans and bottles must be directed down conveyors or production lines. Because of their minimal moisture absorption, these sheets are used in maritime applications.
