North America Region to Attribute Largely to UHMW PE Market Growth During 2022-2027, MarketsandMarkets™ Study

The thermoplastic polymer known as ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) has specific mechanical and physical characteristics, such as acceptable biocompatibility, a low coefficient of friction, strong impact strength at cryogenic temperatures, and good environmental stress-cracking resistance. This polyethylene typically has molecular masses between 2 and 6 million amu and has extremely long chains. The longer chain aids in more efficient weight transfer to the polymer backbone by improving intermolecular interactions. As a result, the most impact-resistant thermoplastic currently made is created, which is exceptionally durable. UHMWPE is non-toxic and has no taste or odor. It is very abrasion resistant, has a very low moisture absorption rate, a very low coefficient of friction, self-lubricates, and in some forms is 15 times more abrasion resistant than carbon steel. According to MarketsandMarkets, The UHMW PE market is projected to reach USD 2.8 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 9.1% from 2022 to 2027.
