Global UHMWPE Market to Grow at a CAGR of 12.3% During 2022-2027, Aided by the Increasing Demand from the Healthcare Sector

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global UHMWPE Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the market attained a value of more than USD 1.83 billion in 2021. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% between 2022 and 2027 to reach above USD 3.67 billion by 2027.

The UHMWPE industry is being driven by the increasing demand for UHMWPE in the production of medical implants. The rising demand for ankle replacement procedures in the healthcare industry is expected to support the market growth in the forecast years. This trend is further being fuelled by the rising geriatric population worldwide. The demand for UHMWPE is expected to surge with the growing ankle-related injuries among sportsmen and military personnel. In this regard, the UHMWPE mobile bearing is an important component in an artificial ankle system. Furthermore, the rapid technological advancements in the development of advanced medical implant solutions are expected to bolster the market growth in the coming years. Moreover, UHMWPE is widely used in the production of lithium-ion battery, owing to its excellent chemical stability, good corrosion resistance, high-tensile strength, and economic feasibility. This is expected to support the market growth in the forecast years.

In October 2020, Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), which is a global chemical and speciality materials company, took a decision to add a new GUR ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene production line at its Bishop, Texas manufacturing facility to bolster the growth of its high-value GUR engineering materials portfolio. GUR UHMWPE offers outstanding abrasion resistance, superior impact resistance, non-sticking and self-lubricating properties, even at extremely low temperatures. Such developments are expected to add to the growth of the UHMWPE industry in the coming years.

In terms of region, the Asia Pacific is anticipated to account for a significant share in the market, owing to the thriving healthcare and medical infrastructure, which is propelling the demand for UHMWPE in the region.
