Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Market Insights
The ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) market is assessed to observe a huge development of CAGR 9.5% during the gauge time frame (2020-2026). UHMWPE is a type of thermoplastic polymer with excellent properties such as high impact strength, low coefficient of friction, high abrasion resistance, chemical resistant, and self-lubrication. The key driver of the UHMWPE market is the rising demand from aerospace, defense, and orthopedic implants industries. Owing to advancement in technology and innovations in mechanical properties and increased energy absorption value of UHMWPE, the market is in high demand for the production of a bulletproof vest, helmets, and impact plates. With the increasing geriatric population in many regions, the joint replacement surgeries are also increasing which is further expected to improve the UHMWPE demand in the projected year.
Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Market: By Type of Form
Based on the type of form, the market is segmented into sheets, rods & tubes, fibers, films, tapes, and others [powder and granules]. The sheets segment will lead the UHMWPE market due to extensive use in mechanical industries. With increasing demand from various end-users (medical and healthcare to food production industries), the share of UHMWPE sheets is expected to increase exponentially.
Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Market: By Type of End-Users
Based on end-user type, the market is segmented into aerospace, defense & shipping, healthcare & medical, mechanical equipment, food & beverages, and others [chemicals, sports & lifestyle, and electronics].
