Drivers & Restraints-

High Demand for Drippers & Nozzles at Irrigation Fields to Propel Growth

Polyethylene is nowadays being used extensively in the manufacturing of toys, sports goods, and fashion apparels. This is occurring because the material enables easy molding of products, provides flexibility & durability, and is capable of resisting physical stresses. The agriculture industry is also exhibiting high demand for the material because of the increasing demand for nozzles, micro tubes, emitting pipes, and drippers at irrigation fields. These factors are set to boost the polyethylene market growth in the near future. However, the prices of raw materials are fluctuating constantly, which, in turn, would impact the cost structure of the final product negatively. This factor may obstruct growth.

COVID-19: Reduced Demand from Various Industries to Hamper Growth

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide is taking a toll on the growth of the market as the demand for PE is reducing from the consumer goods, electrical & electronics, and automotive industries. At the same time, the prices of crude oil are declining because of disruptions in supply chains. We are delivering in-depth reports to help you understand the current effects of the market.
