DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Ethylene Market (By Production Capacity & Demand): Insights & Forecast with Potential Impact of COVID-19 (2023-2027)” report has been added to’s offering.

The global ethylene demand is forecasted to reach 244.67 million tonnes in 2027, rising at a CAGR of 1.82%, for the duration spanning 2023-2027.

Majority of the ethylene produced is used for the development of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE) due to the growing demand from various end use industries such as construction, automotive, packaging and others. Further, ethylene oxide is another major component that is derived from ethylene, which is likely to hold a significant share in the global market in coming years.

The fastest growing regional market was the U.S. due to the continuous additions of new capacity with the installation of new ethylene crackers.
