    LLDPE (Linear low-density polyethylene) market frequently asked questions


    Beroe’s market intelligence reveals that the worldwide LLDPE production currently stands at 44.6 metric million tons (MMT), and the global demand will grow at a 2-4% CAGR from 2019 through 2024.

    Beroe’s market intelligence reveals that the worldwide LLDPE production currently stands at 44.6 metric million tons (MMT), and the global demand will grow at a 2-4% CAGR from 2019 through 2024.

    Given the COVID-19 impact, demand from the construction and automotive sectors, which collectively account for around 15% of the overall LLDPE market, has declined. Moreover, the prices during Q2 2020 hit record lows, with some manufacturing units shutting down due to workforce scarcity. That said, the consumption of LLDPE in the food & beverage and consumer & personal care industries has remained consistent.

    With a production of 18.6 MMT, Asia Pacific (APAC) will remain at the driver’s seat in the global LLDPE market over the forecast period. In addition, the Asian market will grow at a 3-5% CAGR, given the rising per capita plastic consumption.

    Players in the North American LDPE market majorly prefer contract-based engagement models, and buyers are more inclined toward domestic sourcing due to the higher costs of imported LLDPE. In Europe, the buyers focus on both spot and contract-based models and source LLDPE internally and from Middle East/Asia. Furthermore, the Asian buyers engage in spot buying and source LLDPE locally or from Europe.

    LLDPE (Linear low-density polyethylene) market report transcript


    LLDPE (Linear low-density polyethylene) Global Market Outlook

    • The global demand is expected to grow at 2-4 percent CAGR through 2019–2024
    • Asia will remain the key demand driver with an expected growth of 3-5 percent, due to the increase in per capita consumption of plastics
    • Film applications and food/non-food packaging applications are expected to be the key segments driving the growth across the regions especially from the packaged fruits, vegetables to pet food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical segment

    LLDPE Industry Best Practice

    Engagement models

    • CPG companies generally outsource their packaging requirements to converters, as they helps them to focus on their core business
    • Large-scale converters have high price negotiation power with the resin suppliers on the back of heavy annual volume
    • Consortium buying is still in the nascent stage in the LLDPE market and is not a preferred model

    Contract structures

    Fixed Contract

    • Length of contract: One year on an average
    • Minimum volume in contract: >1,000 MT/year

    Multi-year Contract

    • Length of contract: 2–3 years. However, we have not observed multi-year contracts due to high volatility in the prices

    LLDPE (Linear low-density polyethylene) Global Capacity–Demand Analysis

    Capacity additions are expected in the US and China. Even with these capacity additions, China is expected to be net importer of LLDPE during the forecast period.Increase in new capacities in the US could lead to increased exports into LATAM, Europe, SE Asia, and African countries.

    Market Outlook

    • Capacity Dynamics: The global LLDPE production capacity is expected to increase by 5-6 MMT to touch 50 MMT by 2024, driven by the capacity additions in the US, Asia. Moreover, LLDPE and HDPE can be alternatively used in the same unit and due to better barrier properties, hence there is a huge surge in capacity additions.
    • Demand: The global LLDPE demand is estimated to grow at 2-4 percent, driven by film applications in the packaging segment

    Engagement Outlook

    • The North American market is predominantly contract based, and buyers prefer to source locally, due to higher cost of imported LLDPE
    • Contracts are generally renewed annually•In Asia, buyers engage in spot buying and source both within the region or from Europe/Asia, if arbitrage opportunities are available•In Europe, the buyers source both within the region and from Asia/Middle East. Both spot and contract prices are used
    • The suppliers are willing to enter into a contract, only if the minimum order volume is over 1,000 MT or sometimes over 2,000 MT
