Rising Demand from Defence Application to Boost the Market Growth

Growing demand from a variety of applications, including batteries, medical-grade and prosthetics, additives, fibres, filtration, and membranes, is propelling the market forward. The product's superior physical properties over other polymers are expected to fuel demand during the forecast period. Furthermore, due to its properties such as resistance to chemicals, moisture, corrosion, and dirt, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is gaining growing acceptance in defence applications, which will help market growth. Its advantages over traditional metals and polymers, such as low weight, low friction coefficient, higher impact strength, tremendous energy absorption capability, large service temperature range, and wear resistance, all contribute to its increased demand. Several governments across the globe have taken the initiative to upgrade the protective gear available to their military and law enforcement officers, resulting in increased product demand.

 

Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene: Market Segmentation

With a molecular weight of 5 to 9 million, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) has the highest molecular density. It is a thermoplastic polyethylene subset. It has high abrasion resistance, high impact strength, and a low coefficient of friction.

Rising Utilisation in Medical Industry to Drive the Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Industry

Over the historical period, the number of knee and hip replacement surgeries has risen significantly. Better prosthetics, longer lifespans, and improved patient satisfaction have all resulted from technical advances. The demand for medical-grade ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is expected to rise in several countries, including the United States, Canada, Germany, and Japan, over the forecast period. The higher cost of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene relative to other polymers like polypropylene, polyethylene, and engineering thermoplastics is expected to slow down demand growth in the coming years. Furthermore, the recent global outbreak of COVID-19 has had a negative impact on product demand in many applications due to stalled industrial production and supply and transportation constraints. However, the market is expected to recover from the COVID impact over the forecast period.
