Europe polyolefin Market Value and Growth 2022 - 2027:

Europe Polyolefins Market size was about USD 71.4 Billion in 2021. It is expected to raise at a CAGR of 13.25% to develop to around USD 87.3 Billion by 2026.

Polyolefins are polymers formed by the polymerization of simple olefins. Olefins, also known as alkenes, are double bonded carbon-hydrogen hydrocarbons. Polyolefins are robust, lightweight, and strong in nature. They are mainly used in structural plastics, consumer goods, industrial products and food packaging. Polyolefins have a waxy texture and are exposed to water. We maintain their odorless or non-porous qualities when warmed and cooled. This makes them the perfect food packaging material. Polyolefins are favored over other metallic and non-metallic alternatives due to their lightweight, strength and resistance to physical and chemical attacks. 

Market Drivers:

Polyolefins offer a number of characteristics that make them suited for a wide range of applications. It has minimal strength and toughness, yet it is incredibly ductile and impact-resistant, stretching rather than breaking. Polyolefins are more resistant to the weather than other polymers because they are waterproof and robust. Polyolefins are excellent electrical insulators and resist the formation of electrical shafts, yet they can be electrostatically charged. This can be avoided by using antistatic chemicals. Low-density polyolefins are useful for packaging applications because to their transparency. HDPE and other polyolefins can be recycled into other goods, which is less expensive than creating a new product from scratch. Its strong heat resistance allows it to be used at high temperatures. Therefore, owing to these factors the Europe polyolefins market tends to have the largest growth during 2022-2027.

Increased demand for packaged and ready-to-eat food will also promote the expansion of films and the European polyolefin market. In the projected period of 2020-2027, significant demand from the automotive and packaging sectors will generate growth prospects for the European polyolefin market.

On the other hand, Polyolefins' qualities, such as their high stiffness and resistance to moisture and chemicals, make them ideal for industrial applications, particularly in the packaging of automotive and electrical equipment. Manufacturers in the automotive industry, on the other hand, are concentrating on improving vehicle economy by reducing vehicle weight. Polyolefin is popular because it is light, easy to produce, has good sealing qualities, and is stiff, which further propels the Europe Polyolefins market growth in the next six years.

Market Restraints:

One of the main causes of environmental and health problems is the usage of polyolefin plastics such as HDPE, LLDPE, and LDPE bags. Plastic trash is a serious environmental problem, as seen by global plastic production and the pollution that comes with it. The impact of plastic garbage on marine organisms, humans, and the environment, in general, is a source of public concern, highlighting the need to protect ecosystems and their inhabitants. As a result of increased environmental concerns, more rigorous rules are being enacted, slowing the Europe Polyolefins market's growth. Moreover, governments all across the world have enacted legislation to prohibit the use of plastic.

Market Challenges:

Fluctuations in the prices of crude oil and also the threats imposed by the EVA Pv Encapsulation are the major challenges of the Europe polyolefins market and further hinder the market growth during 2022-2027.

Market Opportunities:

The primary factors that acts as the opportunities in the Europe polyolefin market in the next six years is the growing demand for metallocene-based PO and the manufacturing of bio-based PO.

Market segmentation:

Europe Polyolefins Market geographical analysis:

  • Germany is the world's largest user of rigid plastic packaging, with a growth rate of more than 1.5 percent predicted through 2023. The country's construction industry is also expanding rapidly, with a phenomenal growth rate of approximately 5% in 2017 and more projected in the next years. Other industries, such as electronics, healthcare, and so on, are also steadily expanding. The polyolefins market in Germany is likely to benefit from such good growth in the end-user industries.

  • Growing demand from the building sector is propelling the polyolefin market forward in U.K and France, as is a shift in raw material supply. Flexible packaging is appreciated by consumers because it delivers durability and convenience. The most often utilized flexible packaging materials in the market today are HDPE, PP, and LDPE. Flexible packaging is typically utilized to generate various films, and it is mostly employed by the food industry to drive Europe polyolefin market expansion.
