Stretch Film Market Outlook:
Stretch films also called as stretch wraps are plastic films used to wrap around heavy load or multiple items. This film has an elastic property that enables it to keep the objects tightly bound and easy to carry around. In the stretch film market, there are numerous types of films developed and used such as bundling stretch film, extended core stretch film, hand stretch film, static dissipative film and machine stretch film. Each type of stretch film provides different mechanical properties based upon on the film structure, manufacturing process. These films exerts a comprehensive force onto the corners of load of products that keeps the units compact and secure in a place. The stretch film or stretch wraps are mainly used due to its durable and reliable properties. The loads wrapped around with these films are more secure which minimize shipping damages. These films enable increased packaging operation efficiency, improve inventory control, and increases worker productivity.
Globally, the manufacturing industry is growing at a rapid pace based on increasing demand for various products in the local and international markets. This has increased the usage of warehouses for storage and shipping purposes. Based on years of research, it is proved that storage conditions, duration of storage, and pallet configurations affect the performance of the packaging materials, most specifically corrugated fiberboard. To avoid such effects, stretch films are largely adopted across the globe, which is contributing to the increased market size of the stretch film market. In typical warehouse operations, packaged products are unitized together by stretch film and stored prior to transport. The selection of films varies based upon the application.
Stretch Film Market Trends and Advancements:
Globally, stretch film is used for pallet unitization and product bundling. It not only secures the load units, but also protects the products from dust, moisture and damage during transportation. In addition, it provides a low cost reliable method to package products. These advantages of stretch films propelled researchers to look into the additional properties and possibly enhance the efficacy of exiting films. Based on increasing research activities, the stretch film market has grown at extraordinary level over past few years. With time, the stretch film has evolved from monolayer to three layer and now commonly a five or seven layer product. Continuous research has made it possible to process the film on equipment that varies in size and width along with other technological differences. Furthermore, increasing use of stretch film has made metal and plastic banding, tapes, adhesives, and shrink film, as the conventional mean to wrap pallets.
Since the packaging industry is experiencing a significant change, the “go green” initiative has made it essential for the companies to adopt biodegradable and recyclable products. The companies are also realizing that implementing more sustainable practices isn’t just improving the environment, but also is developing the bottom-line. Thus, there has been tremendous advancements in equipment and technology which is making it easier to reach sustainability goals while minimizing the costs. In order to maintain these suitability goals, companies are more focused on reducing primary packaging material which has resulted in greater demands on stretch wrapping material. This has gradually increased the adoption rate of the stretch films and is enhancing the growth rate of the stretch films market.
Stretch Film Market Drivers and Restraints:
The primary factor driving the growth of the stretch films market is rapid development in the packaging industry. Globally, several industries are focusing on improving their packaging processes and make it more sustainable with the help of durable material. The applications of stretch films in these industries has increased at a tremendous pace, thus increased the market size of stretch films industry. Furthermore, increasing importance of protection and safety of goods and products, advantages associated with the stretch films compared to conventional packing material, and increasing research activities are also fueling the growth of this market. Moreover, stretch films are cost effective, user-friendly, more energy efficient than shrink film products, hence are considered to be a better option in the industry. However, increasing cost of raw materials, availability of low cost alternatives, and environmental concerns are some of the factors restraining the growth of stretch films market during the forecast period.
