Ethylene is an inflammable colorless gas with a sweet taste and odor. Ethylene is used extensively in industrial applications. Considering the broad range of industrial applications of ethylene, several prominent petrochemical companies across the world engage in the manufacture of ethylene and its diverse types of derivatives. These international petrochemical companies increase their production capacity of ethylene periodically. Moreover, demand for ethylene is expected to augment significantly in different end-use industries. This is ultimately leading to sustainable growth in the ethylene market.

Polyethylene was the largest application segment of the ethylene market in 2013 and accounted for more than 50% of the total market. Distinct types of polyethylene are used for the manufacture of plastic that is used for producing everyday appliances, packaging, pipes, and toys. Polyethylene can be processed into hard products as well as soft and flexible components. Plastic produced from polyethylene can be seen in articles of all dimensions, with the simplest to the most complex shapes. The growing consumption of polyethylene in the production of a diverse range of plastic components is consequently resulting in significant rise in the demand for ethylene. As far as growth rate is concerned, ethylene oxide is expected to be the fastest growing application segment of the ethylene market in the forecast period. The prospective growth in ethylene oxide can be mainly attributed to the rising demand for ethylene oxide derivatives such as ethylene glycol to produce plastic items, mainly bottles.
