The Global Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) Market was valued at over 22 million tons in 2020 and the market is projected to register a CAGR of over 3% during the forecast period (2021-2026). Due to the impact of COVID-19, growth rates for 2020 were severely affected. The construction and packaging industries are among the major end-user industries of low-density polyethylene. Due to contractual obligations, resource availability, deliverables, health and safety measures, and project delays or cancellations created by pandemic, the construction industry affected badly. However, the packaging for groceries, healthcare products, and e-commerce transportation were seen a significant increase in demand and thus increased the consumption of low-density polyethylene.

- Over the medium term, the major factors driving the growth of the market studied are the rise in demand from packaging and surging demand for film and sheets.
- On the flip side, the substitution of other polyethylene products and the banning of plastics reduces the market growth during the forecast period.
- Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the market and is also likely to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends
