Cross-linked polyethylene introduces thermosetting properties in the polymer, which further exhibits high molecular weight, high thermal and abrasion resistance; and superior impact strength and tensile strength. Their demand, owing to these superior physical properties, is increasing in the insulation, packaging, and automotive industries.
According to MRFR analysis, the global cross-linked polyethylene market is estimated to reach USD 8.5 billion at a healthy CAGR of 6.2% by the end of 2025. By type, the global cross-linked polyethylene market has been classified into high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), and others (linear low-density polyethylene, ethyl vinyl acetate copolymer, and polyolefin elastomer). The HDPE was the dominant segment in 2018 owing to its increasing application in pipes and tubes. Its exceptional combination of physical properties makes HDPE a suitable material for use in several end-use industries. Also, it is easy to install and does not corrode and possess high flexural strength.

On the basis of technology, the global cross-linked polyethylene market has been segmented into peroxide method, silane grafting method, and electron beam processing. The peroxide segment held the largest market share in 2018 and is likely to register the highest CAGR during the assessment period owing to its ability to produce the highest and uniform degree of cross-linking. Furthermore, this method also offers resistance to stress cracking and aggressive chemicals. It helps to produces XLPE having excellent weatherability and degradation stability, which are essential in piping and cable insulation applications.
By process, the global cross-linked polyethylene market has been bifurcated into chemical and physical. In the chemical process, free radicals are produced via chemical reactions, whereas in the physical process, free radicals are generated through radiation. The chemical was the largest segment in 2018 as it can efficiently produce XLPEs, which are particularly used in reclaimed water distribution systems and ground source geothermal systems. The physical segment is projected to exhibit a healthy CAGR owing to its ability to produce XLPEs that are widely used in the medical industry in prosthetic implantation in body parts and cross-linked polyethylene foam in packaging application.
Based on application, the global cross-linked polyethylene market has been divided into wires & cables, plumbing, medical, chemical, automotive, and others (mining and watercraft products). The plumbing segment held the largest market share in 2018, owing to the increasing demand for XLPE in distributed water transmission systems and sewer systems. However, the wires and cables segment is estimated to register the highest CAGR owing to the expanding electronics and telecommunication industries. XLPE is used as an electrical insulation material in power cables and is highly resistant to heat, abrasion, and moisture.
