Cavitated BOPP Film Market: An Overview

Cavitated BOPP film is expected to have significant growth owing to the growing demand from the food industry. The largest end-use industry of the cavitated biaxially polypropylene (BOPP) film is the food industry for packaging of wafers, ice-creams, chocolates and bottle labels. To create the tiny cavities during the manufacturing process, the film is oriented biaxially after extrusion along with vertical and horizontal stretching that gives the pearly appearance and reduces the density of the film. The cavitated BOPP film is used as a wrap or as laminating film for food and industrial packaging. Cavitated BOPP film is the unique cost-competitive alternative to other BOPP film or plain BOPP film due to its better slip control feature, broad seal range and high yield with a reduced environmental footprint. The feature of printing on cavitated BOPP film provides product information which makes easy for customers to decide between buying that particular product.

Cavitated BOPP Film Market: Dynamics

Increasing per capita income across the globe is escalating the demand for packed food which in turn is expected to boost the cavitated BOPP film market. The increasing demand for innovating BOPP films for packing is fuelling the cavitated BOPP film market. Manufacturers are continuously finding the new application area for cavitated BOPP film which is expected to take cavitated BOPP film market to a new level during the forecast period. Water resistance and gas barrier property of the cavitated BOPP film is the factor driving the cavitated BOPP film market. BOPET films have a negative impact on the environment and are largely replaced by BOPP film which is contributing to the growth of the cavitated BOPP film market. Reprocessing and recyclability of cavitated BOPP film is another factor driving cavitated BOPP film market. The pricing of the cavitated BOPP film is directly coupled with the pricing of polypropylene which relates to the pricing of the crude oil. However, the pricing of the crude oil is continuously increasing and so the cavitated BOPP films to have higher rates during the forecast period.

Key Development- Toray Plastics recently launched white cavitated BOPP film named Torayfan MWX6 especially for gas-flushed packaging application.
