The Pivotal Study of Global UHMWPE Market – Market Synopsis, Industry Key Players, Market Tracking, Regional Forecast till 2026

  • Base Year: 2018
  • Estimated Year: 2019
  • Forecast Period: 2019 to 2026


According to the report, the UHMWPE market is expected to grow from USD 1,020 million in 2019 to USD 1964 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 9.82% from 2019 to 2026.

Superior properties such as high impact strength, low friction coefficient, high flexibility and low reactivity to chemicals & additives make it favorable for the growth of the UHMWPE market. Surge in demand for joint replacement surgeries and PPE market are also expected to drive the global market. Government initiatives to provide superior personal protective equipment and anti-ballistic protection to military and law enforcement are anticipated to develop the market’s growth. However, high price compared to other polymers is projected to restrain the growth of the UHMWPE market.

UHMWPE is a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene. It has extremely long chains resulting in a very tough material, with high impact strength. Its coefficient of friction is comparable to that of PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) but it has better abrasion resistance. UHMPE is an outstanding bearing material with exceptional sliding properties and remains tough even at low temperatures.
