Market Overview:  

The global cross-linked polyethylene market is predicted to touch USD 8.5 billion at a 6.2% CAGR between 2019-2025, reveals the latest Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Cross-linked polyethylene, also known as XLPE, XPE, or PEX, is a type of polyethylene having cross-links. It is extensively used to build insulation for high tension electrical cables, domestic water piping, hydronic radiant cooling and heating systems, and services pipework systems. Besides, it is also used for transportation of slurries and sewage, chemical transportation, and offshore oil and natural gas applications. 

Market Scenario and Growth Factors:

Various factors are propelling the cross-linked polyethylene market growth. These factors, as stated by the latest Market Research Future (MRFR) report, include shifting consumer use towards pipes made of cross-linked polyethylene in potable water distribution applications, rapid urbanization, increasing development strategies, and easy availability of raw materials. Additional factors pushing market growth include increasing research and development activities initiated by key players, booming construction industry, burgeoning demand for cross-linked polyethylene from power and automotive industries, and its alluring features such as ease of installation and low cost. 

On the flip side, fluctuating raw material and crude oil prices, safety hazard issues, and plumbing failure are factors that may hamper the cross-linked polyethylene market growth over the forecast period.

Industry News:

October 2019: Sabic had recently launched a dedicated POE (polyolefin elastomer) foam for footwear, casual and sports shoes. These shoes will come with high performance properties, low density, and consistency and will offer compression set, superior resilience, and stable foamability, thereby enabling durability and greater bounce. 

Market Segmentation:

The MRFR report provides an all-inclusive segmental analysis of the cross-linked polyethylene market on the basis of application, process, technology, and type. 

Based on type, the Cross-Linked Polyethylene Industry is segmented into low-density polyethylene (LDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and others. The others segment includes polyolefin elastomer, ethyl vinyl acetate copolymer, and liner low-density polyethylene). Of these, the high-density polyethylene segment will have the largest share in the market over the forecast period for its rising application in pipes and tubing.  

Based on technology, the cross-linked polyethylene market is segmented into electron beam processing, silane grafting method, and peroxide method. Of these, the peroxide method will dominate the market over the forecast period owing to the ability to produce a uniform and the highest degree of cross-linking. Besides, it also offers good resistance to aggressive chemicals and stress cracking. 

Based on the process, the cross-linked polyethylene market is segmented into physical and chemical. Of these, the chemical process will lead the market over the forecast period as it can effectively produce cross-linked polyethylene that can be used in ground source geothermal systems and reclaimed water distribution systems. 

Based on the application, the cross-linked polyethylene market is segmented into automotive, chemical, medical, plumbing, wires and cables, and others. The others include watercraft products and mining. Of these, the plumbing segment will have the maximum share in the market over the forecast period owing to the high consumption of cross-linked polyethylene in distributed water transmission systems and sewer systems. 

Regional Analysis:

By region, the Cross-Linked Polyethylene Industry covers the latest trends and growth opportunities across North America, the Middle East and Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific. Of these, the APAC region is predicted to spearhead the market over the forecast period chiefly on account of the growing construction sector and rising industrialization. Moreover, the increasing commercial and residential construction activities in the region are also propelling the demand for cross-linked polyethylene in plumbing systems and the production of cables and wires. 

The cross-linked polyethylene market in North America and Europe is predicted to have a stable growth over the forecast period chiefly on account of their well-developed consumer economy and automotive industry. 

The cross-linked polyethylene market in Latin America and the MEA is predicted to have a steady growth over the forecast period.
