High density polyethylene (HDPE) segment dominated the market in 2016, according to the stats provided by Coherent Market Insights. Cross-linked HDPE is gaining traction over raw HDPE due to its thermosetting nature, high mechanical strength, and better stress crack resistance. Furthermore, cross-linked HDPE can be produced economically and thus, finds wide application in domestic and industrial plumbing services. This in turn, is fueling growth of the ****** cross linked polyethylene market, a trend that is expected to sustain over the forecast period.

Plumbing was the largest application segment in the ****** cross linked polyethylene market in 2016 and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Conventionally used plumbing materials such as copper and PVC do not perform well in high temperatures and when highly chlorinated water is transported through them over prolonged periods. This is key and highly lucrative growth area for manufacturers of cross-linked polyethylene to exploit. Thus, various players in the market are focusing on R&D activities to deploy cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipes for supply of chlorinated water and for radiant heating applications. Also, other emerging applications such as use of PEX pipes in mining activities and solar applications are also paving the way for growth of the cross-linked polyethylene market globally. XLPE storage tanks are widely used in the chemical industry due to their ability to withstand acidic corrosion and heat.

The ****** cross linked polyethylene market was valued at US$ 5,323.1 million and 2,941.2 kilo tons in 2016 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.6% in terms of revenue and 6.1% in terms of volume during 2017 – 2025.

Automotive segment is expected to be the fastest growing application area in the cross linked polyethylene market

Among application, automotive segment is expected to witness fastest growth over the forecast period. The automotive sales in China grew by 15%, in the U.S. grew by 0.2%, and in Europe 7% Y-o-Y growth in 2016. Therefore, the automotive segment is expected to drive growth of the market due to the rapid growth in the automotive industry.
