How Big is the Bio-Based Polyethylene Market ? :

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Bio-Based Polyethylene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028”, The global bio-based polyethylene market size reached US$ 1.6 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2.1 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2% during 2023-2028.

What are Bio-Based Polyethylene and Uses ? :

Bio-based polyethylene (bio-PE) represents a type of thermoplastic polymer compound produced by combining ethylene monomer with dehydrated bioethanol sourced from various feedstocks, such as sugarcane. It serves as an environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional chemical or petroleum-based variants. Bio-based polyethylene is commercially available in three types, including high-density polyethylene (HDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), and low-density polyethylene (LPDE).

In addition to this, this thermoplastic polymer compound possesses recyclability and exhibits lightweight, durable, and corrosion-resistant properties. As a result of these characteristics, bio-based polyethylene is highly suitable for packaging applications in several sectors, such as cosmetics, household goods, pharmaceuticals, edible oils, and food and beverage (F&B).
