By form, the sheets segment is estimated to account for a major share of the UHMW PE market in 2019. This large share is mainly attributed to the extensive use of sheets in the aerospace, defense, & shipping industries for the manufacture of aircraft interiors & mechanical equipment industries for the manufacture of conveyer belts. Rods & tubes are the second most used form of UHMW PE used majorly in the mechanical equipment industry.
Based on end-use industry, the healthcare & medical segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in 2019. In the healthcare & medical industry, there is a high demand for UHMW PE for the manufacture of orthopedic implants and parts for medical devices due to properties such as high strength to weight ratio, self-lubrication, and impact resistance. The growing demand for orthopedic implants from developed countries is expected to fuel the growth of the UHMW PE market globally.

The ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW PE) market is estimated at USD 1.4 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 2.2 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2020 to 2025. Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW PE) is a simple linear background polyethylene possessing unique properties. Due to its ultra-high molecular density, it provides high abrasion resistance and impact strength in comparison to other engineering polymers. Apart from this, the material can also be optimized for more application specific requirements such as noise resistance, low coefficient of friction, excellent chemical resistance, self-lubrication, bio-compatibility, wear resistance, and electric insulation resistance.
Major companies such as Celanese Corporation (US), Koninklijke DSM N.V. (Netherlands), LyondellBasell Industries N.V. (Netherlands), Braskem S.A (Brazil), Asahi Kasei Corporation, (Japan) Du Pont De Nemours Inc. (US), Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation (Saudi Arabia), Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. (Japan), Honeywell International, Inc. (US), and Teijin Limited (Japan) and others are key players in the UHMW PE market. These players have been focusing on developmental strategies, such as expansions, acquisitions, partnerships, joint veture, and new product developments, which have helped them expand their businesses in untapped and potential markets.
