South America Filled Polyolefin Market Segment Analysis - By Type

The polyethylene segment held the largest share in the South America filled polyolefin market in 2019. Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer with a variable crystalline structure and a vast range of applications depending on the particular type. It is one of the most widely produced plastics in the world. There are several types of polyethylene, and each one is best suited for a different set of applications. High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) held the largest share in the polyethylene segment. It is used extensively in manufacturing household containers. It is a thermoplastic with a very high strength to density ratio. High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a very versatile plastic that has a wide range of applications from pipes to storage bottles. When compared to other plastics, the melting point of high density polyethylene is relatively high.

South America Filled Polyolefin Market Segment Analysis - By Application

Injection molding held the largest share in the South America filled polyolefin market in 2019 in terms of application. Injection Molding is a manufacturing process for producing parts in large volume. It is most typically used in mass-production processes where the same part is being created thousands or even millions of times in succession. There are almost twenty thousand plastic compounds available for injection molding. Injection molding enables complex shapes to be manufactured, some of which might be near impossible to produce economically by any other means. Blow Molding held the second largest segment in terms of application. Blow molding is a process for converting thermoplastics into simple to intricate and complex shapes hollow objects. The process is especially amenable to the goal of consolidating as much function as possible into a single product. Like injection molding, the process is discontinuous or batch wise in nature, involving a sequence of operations that culminates in the production of a molding.
