    Segments' Analysis

    By Product Type

    Based on the product type, the market is segmented as HDPE, LDPE, and others. The HDPE segment dominated the market in 2021 and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. HDPE PEXs are used in pipe and tubing. The excellent properties of HDPE make it an ideal material choice for various applications. Further, it is easy to install and unlike copper, used for piping and tubing, HDPE PEX maintains its flexural strength and does not corrode. All these factors are likely to drive the growth of the segment during the forecast period.

    By Technology Type

    Based on the technology type, the market is segmented as PEXA, PEXB, and PEXC. PEXA is the most dominant technology used for the production of PEX, as it offers the most uniform degree of cross-linking. In addition, it provides added advantages, such as higher chemical resistance, improved resistance to stress, and better degradation stability, which are estimated to drive the growth of this segment during the forecast period.

    By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the PEX (crossed-linked polyethylene) market is segmented as wires & cables, plumbing, automotive, and others. The wires & cables segment leads the market owing to its wide usage as electrical insulation in electric cables of all ranges of voltage, but the most preferred ones are for the medium and low ranges of voltage.

    By Region

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the largest as well as fastest-growing market for PEX (crossed-linked polyethylene) during the forecast period. The region’s market is underpinned by rapid industrialization and expansion in the distribution lines in the communication and electrical industries. In addition, the large-scale employment of wires & cables in the automotive industry is giving an impetus to the growth of the market, with China and India, being the major growth engines of the Asia-Pacific region. North America and Europe are also expected to offer considerable growth opportunities during the forecast period.
