The ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW PE)market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.4% between 2020 and 2025

The 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.Growth in the healthcare & medical industry due to increasing use of UHMW PE for the manufacture of prosthetic implants, is leading toa demand for UHMW PE. However, volatile prices of raw materials are expected to restrain the UHMW PE market.

Impact of COVID-19 outbreak on the UHMW PE market

The outbreak of COVID-19 has affected the market for UHMW PE, as most of the global companies operating in this market are based in the US and the European countries.  These companies having their manufacturing units in China and other Asian countries are also severely affected. Therefore, disruptions in the supply chain have resulted in hampering production units due to a lack of raw materials and workforce. The market is estimated to witness negative growth until the second quarter of 2020. The lockdown in major countries due to this pandemic has also led to the shutdown of the production of plastic products.

Europe and North America aircraft manufacturers and lockdowns imposed by governments have led to significant losses to manufacturers in the region. This decrease in the production of aircraft has led to a decline in the demand for UHMW PE, which affects the growth of the market. The outbreak of COVID-19 has also affected the number of joint replacement surgeries.
