Increase in the use of UHMWPE-based protection gear is likely to fuel the Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) Market

Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is tasteless, nontoxic and odorless polyethylene. It is available in several shapes and form according to its use in different applications. It has all the characteristics of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and has the added benefit of being resistant to alkalis, acids and another organic solvent. Medical sector is the leading sector contributes to the global UHMWPE market which got nearly 30% of the market share in the year 2016. Suitable characteristics of UHMWPE work as an implant for orthopedic surgeries and consequently increasing the demand for UHMWPE.


There are a few factors which will bolster the ultra high molecular weight polythene (UHMWPE) market growth such as the growing demand from North America, increasing use of UHMWPE-based protection gear and growing demand from the medical implant industry. On the other hand, volatile prices of raw material will hamper the ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene market growth. The sheets segment is anticipated to get the high share of the UHMW PE market in 2019 on the basis of form. This substantial percentage can be attributable to the mechanical equipment industry’s widespread use of UHMW PE sheets. The segment is anticipated to grow at rapid CAGR rate because of the growing demand from healthcare and medical end-use industries.
