India Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) Market: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Process, Demand & Supply, Application, End Use, Distribution Channel, Region, Competition, Trade, Customer & Price Intelligence Market Analysis, 2015-2030

Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) demand in India grew at a CAGR of around 5.5% during 2015-2019 and is expected to achieve a healthy growth rate during the forecast period. Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is flexible and tough, easy to process and has excellent chemical resistance among other polyethylenes. A large volume of LDPE produced in the country (about 30%), goes for packaging films. Demand for packaging films have reported a robust rise in recent years due to increasing demand from poultry wrapping, dairy products, snacks and sweets, frozen food bags and bakery products. Also, the government’s initiatives towards making India a global manufacturing hub would propel the growth of country’s packaging industry. Increasing investments by large packaging companies such as Uflex, which are actively coming up with innovative packaging ideas and sophisticated products will drive the LDPE demand in the forecast period.
These days, LDPE shrink films have been popularly preferred over other polyethylene films due to added strength and durability for heavier and larger items like bundles of beverage cans.These films typically offer better biaxial shrink properties, good sealing characteristics and machinability on conversion lines, thereby preferably chosen by industrialists involved transportation and storage of FMCG commodities in bulk.

Pharmaceutical companies also use odorless LDPE bags to prevent their drugs from moisture for a longer duration.Desirable properties of LDPE like low water absorption, high environmental stress resistance and easy processability makes it an ideal choice for manufacturing containers, dispensing bottles, wires and cables, tubes, plastic bags, etc.

Moreover, Indian government’s policies such as Make in India Scheme and Smart Cities Mission would further escalate the demand for LDPE products from the construction and infrastructure sectors.
The LDPE plants across the world use different technologies for production.India’s only LDPE manufacturer, RIL is using LyondellBasell’s Lupotech technology, which is the most popularly used technology across the globe.

However, a sudden outbreak of novel coronavirus hard hit the country’s LDPE sector as several Indian ports had to declare force majeure in compliance with the government’s lockdown measure in country’s battle against COVID-19.LDPE supplies remained tight throughout the final quarter of 2020 as key southeast Asian players such as Lotte Chemical Titan, and undue delays in scheduled capacity expansion plans further hit the LDPE market dynamics.

Moreover, prime minister Narendra Modi’s vision to completely ban single-use plastic by 2022 may also hamper the growth of LDPE market to some extent during the forecast period. The LDPE market may also face a threat of substitution from LLDPE, HDPE, and ULDPE counterparts, that may also restrict the growth of the LDPE market during the forecast period.

Years Considered for this Report:

Historical Years: 2015– 2019
Base Year: 2020
Estimated Year: 2021

Import of LDPE declined by almost 20 per cent in FY 2020 and LDPE prices were assessed at USD XXX per MT on bulk contract basis.LDPE film Q4FY20 CFR prices in India hovered between $900-920/ tonne, down by about 2 per cent than in the last quarter due to COVID-19 related uncertainties.

However, with downstream sectors restarting their production activities, and manufacturers scaling up production, prices are likely to show an uptrend by the Q2FY21.
