Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene is also known as high-modulus polyethylene and is a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene. The increasing geriatric population coupled with increased demand for orthopaedic implants is expected to boost the market growth. Furthermore, high range of applications of UHMWPE and rising demand for electric vehicles is also anticipated to drive the market growth.
However, the presence of substitutes such as polyoxymethylene, urethane, fluorpolymers, and polycarbonate is likely to negatively hamper the market growth. Moreover, the volatile prices of raw material coupled with low melting point and unsuitability for high load applications are also expected to hinder the market growth.

Growth Influencers:

Increasing geriatric population coupled with increased demand for orthopaedic implants
The usage of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene in the medical industry for manufacturing of orthopaedic implants is increasing, as the material is wear-resistant, highly biocompatible, and ductile. Therefore, growing demand for orthopaedic implants owing to high prevalence of orthopaedic disorders and rising geriatric population is boosting the demand for UHMWPE, hence fueling the market growth during the forecast period.
