This report studies the UHMWPE Sheet market, Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE or UHMW), is a kind of thermoplastic polyethylene chemical materials, which has high molecular weight over 1.5millon as usual. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene offers a unique combination of wear and corrosion resistance, low friction surface, and impact strength.
At present, most of the processing of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene sheet using sintering molding method, but also the plunger extrusion is low popularity.
UHMWPE Sheet industry is dispersion relatively. For now, there are many producing companies in the world. The main market players are Röchling Group, Quadrant Plastics, Qiyuan Plastics and Wefapress. The sales of UHMWPE Sheet will increase to 81.9 K MT in 2018 from 58.2 K MT in 2012 with average growth rate of 5.9%.
In consumption market, Europe, USA and China are the mainly consumption regions due to the bigger demand of downstream applications. In 2017, these regions occupied 76.1% of the global consumption volume in total.
UHMWPE Sheet has three types, mainly in accordance with the molecular weight of the resin. The high performance of UHMWPE sheet is reflected in many aspects, while the wear resistance, impact resistance, low coefficient of friction. UHMWPE Sheet has a huge market potential in the future. Manufacturers engaged in the industry are trying to produce better property UHMWPE Sheet through improving technology.
The global UHMWPE Sheet market is valued at 310 million US$ in 2017 and will reach 390 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 2.8% during 2018-2025.
