Scope for Material Innovation to Bring Opportunities for Manufacturers in the US$ 12.59 Bn Stretch Films Market; Predicts Future Market Insights

Major stretch film manufacturers leverage applications in essential goods sectors including food & beverage and pharmaceuticals to sustain sales during the coronavirus crisis.

The stretch films market is expected to display a moderate 4.6% CAGR throughout the projection period between the years 2018 and 2028. The coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on the manufacturing sector, including plastic production and processing operations, critical for stretch films. However, extensive packaging applications in myriad verticals such as pharma, consumer electronics, and food & beverages among others will help reduce losses, and aid a faster recovery, post pandemic.

“Stretch films are being viewed as a viable option food packaging applications, owing to low cost, superior high barrier characteristics, compatibility with printing inks, high durability and low weight. These factors will contribute to increasing adoption for beverage and convenience food applications for the foreseeable future,” says the FMI analyst.
