Polyethylene - Category Spend Analysis

According to SpendEdge analysts, one of the key growth contributors for the global polyethylene market is the increasing demand from the food and beverages industry. Packaging is the largest application segment for polyethylene, and the trend is expected to continue for the near future. The demand for plastics from the packaging of food and beverages is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 10% during the forecast period. The rigid plastic packaging segment has been the dominant consumer of polyethylene, driving the demand for HDPE. However, wrapped plastic films have seen a surge in demand in the last five years. These films are commonly used for packaging of food products. Moreover, surface protection applications used in consumer products such as food and beverages and cosmetics are experiencing a surge in demand, which is likely to lead to greater demand for LLDPE, a  sub-category of polyethylene.

 

Polyethylene - Procurement Best Practices

Buyers must engage with several suppliers, preferably a blend of regional and global suppliers. Involvement with multiple vendors can facilitate the distribution of high-volume orders among them and reduce risks. The reduced dependency on a particular supplier can lead to higher bargaining power and consistency in supply.

 

Polyethylene - Procurement Challenges

A major procurement pain point experienced by the buyers is the difficulty in overcoming high transportation costs. Several hazardous materials are employed in the production of polyethylene. Therefore, ensuring safe handling and transportation require the use of specialized containers and compliance with restrictions regarding transportation routes. These compliance costs add to the cost of procurement for buyers. Overcoming these require engagement with suppliers that have an efficient and cost-effective logistics support network or suppliers located in close proximity. This lowers the number of options for buyers to choose.
