Polyethylene: United States

Polyethylene: United States

This report forecasts to 2022 US polyethylene demand and shipments in pounds, demand in nominal US dollars at the producer level, and prices. Total demand in volume and value terms is segmented by resin type in terms of: high-density polyethylene (HDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), and low-density polyethylene (LDPE). Total demand in volume terms is also segmented by market as follows: packaging; consumer and institutional products; building products; and other markets, such as electrical and electronic products, industrial goods, and transportation equipment.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand, total shipments, the various segments, prices, and trade are provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017.

Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene is excluded from the scope of this report, as are other polyethylene copolymers such as ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) and polyolefin elastomers/plastomers. Recycled polyethylene is also excluded. Re-exports of polyethylene are excluded from demand and trade figures.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
