UHMWPE or ultra high molecular weight polyethylene is thermoplastic polyethylene chemical material having a molecular weight of 1.5 million. It offers wear and corrosion resistance, impact strength, and low friction surface.

UHMW material absorbs little water and is a hard and stable material. It is used for defence and military applications like protective clothing and gear.

The main trend in the UHMWPE Market is the use of high density polyethylene in 3D bone grafting. EpiBone, a New York based company makes use of 3D technology for creating artificial bones.

UHMWPE fiber can be used in Orthopaedic surgeries as an implant.

Scope & Regional Forecast of the UHMWPE Market

The UHMWPE Market has applications in automotive industry, wires, cables, defence applications. Medical grade polymer is used as a biomaterial and in medical devices.

The long chains of the high molecular weight polyethylene sheet make it easier for transferring loads. This makes it suitable for medical applications.

Chemical resistance, sound dampening characteristics, and electric insulation contribute to the growth of medical grade ultra high molecular polyethylene.

Growing number of join replacement surgeries, joint infections, and implant loosening drive the demand for ultra high polyethylene. Asia Pacific is expected to hold a major share in the market due to the UHMWPE production in India, China, Japan, and South Korea.

This rise is attributed to the growing urbanisation and increasing incomes.
