The PEX market size is projected to grow from USD 6.1 billion in 2019 to USD 8.3 billion by 2024, at a CAGR 6.0%. The growing construction sector, increasing R&D activities initiated by major players, easy availability of raw materials, and increasing development strategies to meet the demand for PEX in the established and emerging applications are driving the market. Moreover, increased investment by the government to produce green and clean energy by the installation of solar power plants and windmill-powered plants is expected to drive the demand for wires & cables, which, in turn, is likely to drive the PEX market. The global economic growth, increasing standard of living, growth opportunities available in the market, increasing urbanization, and rapidly growing building infrastructure are also boosting the demand for PEX, globally.

Based on type, the PEX market is segmented into HDPE, LDPE, and others. Almost all PEX used for pipe and tubing is made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). HDPE accounts for the largest share of the market and is also the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. Cross-linked HDPE is used in pipes and tubing in the plumbing segment. The excellent combination of properties makes HDPE an ideal material for diverse applications in various industries. Cross-linked HDPE helps in solving plumbing problems at an economical price. It is also easier to install. Unlike the traditional systems that use copper for piping and tubing, cross-linked HDPE does not corrode and maintains its flexural strength.

The global PEX market size is estimated at USD 6.1 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 8.3 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.0% between 2019 and 2024. PEX is a type of polyethylene that consists of numerous cross-links resulting in the formation of a three-dimensional network of high molecular weight compound. The molecular bonds that result in cross-linking improve many properties of polyethylene such as heat deformation, abrasion, chemical, and stress crack resistance. Therefore, PEX, with its superior properties as compared to copper or CPVC, is gaining market share in the plumbing as well as in the wires & cables application. The use of PEX in manufacturing automobile parts and battery cables in the transmission and power distribution channels is driving the global PEX market in the automotive application. Moreover, the solar industry is expected to be a major factor in driving the PEX market in the future, with producers continuously looking to replace the conventional materials.

The key players in the PEX market are The Dow Chemical Company (US), Borealis AG (Austria), Solvay (Belgium), LyondellBasell (Netherlands), ExxonMobil Corporation (US), PolyOne Corporation (US), 3H Vinacom Co., Ltd. (Vietnam), Falcone Specialities AG (Switzerland), Hanwha Chemical Corporation (South Korea), and HDC Hyundai EP (South Korea).
