Polyethylene is commonly used in a wide range of applications, including packaging, medical, consumer, and insulation products. It is a processed thermoplastic. Like all thermoplastics, polyethylene starts flowing above its melting point and loses its desirable mechanical characteristics, limiting its high-temperature operation. It is, thus, cross-linked to alter its nature from thermoplastic to thermoset and to form a plastic that is more temperature-resistant with enhanced mechanical strength.

 

Market Segmentation

Cross-linked polyethylene, frequently known as PEX or XLPE, is a cross-linked type of polyethylene. It is made up of tubing and is mainly used for the construction of pipework structures, hydronic radiant heating, and cooling systems, water piping, and high-voltage electrical cables insulation.

The PEX (crossed-linked polyethylene) market can be divided based on segments like type, process, technology, and application.

Market Analysis

The PEX (crossed-linked polyethylene) industry is driven primarily by the automotive and construction sectors in the Asia Pacific, primarily in India, China, Japan, South Korea, and the countries of Southeast Asia. During the forecast period, the implementation of wires and cables is projected to lead the PEX (crossed-linked polyethylene) industry. PEX is commonly used in energy wires of all voltage ranges as electrical insulation, although it is more suitable for applications of low and medium voltage. PEX is the most popular polymer insulation material that is weather, heat, and moisture resistant. To transfer energy securely and effectively, it offers better protection for copper cables. Therefore, the growing demand from these applications is anticipated to drive the PEX (crossed-linked polyethylene) industry over the forecast period.
