In spite of the fact that polyolefins were one of the last types of polymers to be commercialized, they have become the most widely used polymers throughout the world. Low density polyethylene (LDPE), which was the pioneer commercial polyolefin, is a highly branched polymer, produced at extremely high pressures, in a capital-intensive process. Nevertheless, over 2 million tons of this product is produced annually in the U.S. and an equal volume of this polymer is produced in other developed nations.
