Strapping is used for bundling or unitizing products for transportation and storage. Plastic strapping materials are made up of polyester, polypropylene, or composite (polyester and polypropylene) materials. Strappings made out of composite materials possess characteristics of both materials, which gives them exceptional breaking strength, elasticity, and tensile strength. Composite strapping is a strapping method, known for its durable yet non-abrasive nature. It is manufactured from polyester yarns and coated with polymer coatings. Among all non-metal strappings, composite strapping is one of the most preferred alternative owing to its high retained tension. Composite strapping is used for holding bales, reinforcing wooden boxes, crates, and corrugated boxes and bundling pipe, lumber, bricks, etc.
Composite Strapping Market: Dynamics
Composite strapping has gained significant traction in the global market in the past few years. This can be attributed to their ability to provide superior bundling and high load absorbing strength at an economical cost. The flexible nature of composite strapping helps in securing the goods without damaging it. Moreover, it doesn’t stain or rust the package like metal strappings tend to do. All these characteristics are anticipated to fuel the demand for composite strappings in the coming years. Another key feature which sets composite strappings apart is the ease of printing that they offer — this aids in putting product information on the shipping container.
However, many end-use industries still prefer steel strapping as a unitizing application instead of plastic strapping methods owing to its inability to withstand high temperature. Presence of such substitutes might hamper the growth of the composite strapping market during the forecast period.
Increasing inter-oceanic trade activities are providing momentum to the global composite strapping market. Overseas trading requires efficient shipping solutions so as to ensure safe transit of the products. High strength offered by composite strapping provides superior impact resistance as shocks & vibrations get settled, which is required for long distance transit. Furthermore, surging demand for effective palletization solutions across various end-use industries is expected to boost the sales of composite strapping during the period of forecast.
