The global crosslinked polyethylene market is segmented into various applications namely plumbing, wires & cables, automotive, and others (includes mining, chemical industry, and solar). Plumbing is the largest application segment due to growing residential & commercial construction activities. Automotive application is the fastest growing application due to the use of XLPE foams in the under-the-hood, interior and non-interior components of a vehicle. Use of XLPE has risen significantly in recent times in the automotive sector due to increasing inclination of automakers towards lightweighting. This to ensure regulatory adherence related to carbon emissions. Lightweight have superior fuel economy and better performance, which in turn is the major factor for making the automotive application as the fastest-growing application.
Crosslinked polyethylene are being extensively used in wires and cables due to its high insulating property that is highly resistant to heat, weather elements, and moisture. Furthermore, the rise in demand of cross-linked polyethylene in other end-use industries such as mining, solar, and chemical industries are fueling growth of the global cross-linked polyethylene market.
