Global PET Sealing Films Market: Overview

Similar to all the barrier properties and tensile strength, the quality of the packaging also lies in its sealing properties. PET sealing films are used to protect packaging formats from leakage and to keep products intact. When it comes to the transportation & storage of products, the packaging material for the same requires high tensile strength as well as sealing strength. The PET sealing films market is estimated to witness significant growth during the forecast period, as protective packaging solutions are in high demand.

PET sealing films can also be applied to trays, cups, bowls, and other containers to maintain the freshness of the food. PET sealing films are used for various applications, which include coffee packaging, cheese & dairy products, refillable packaging, cereals, pet food, soft drinks, and cosmetics, among others. Increasing demand for the transportation of products to different places is estimated to boost the demand for PET sealing films. These films are applied to reduce the storage space, as well as to eliminate the waste generated due to other lids or tray covers.

Global PET Sealing Films Market: Dynamics

A single roll of PET sealing film is able to seal thousands of cups and containers, which can drastically reduce the overall packaging cost. A crucial factor that can impact the market growth of any product is cost, and PET sealing films offer a higher profit margin as compared to lids or covers.

However, a ban on the usage plastic, which has been imposed by the governments of different countries, is expected to hamper the growth of the PET sealing films market. The usage of plastic-based product leads to a high carbon footprint, which is restraining the growth of the PET sealing films market. PET sealing films are used to improve the quality and appearance of the packaging formats. Manufacturers are seeking packaging solutions that stand out on retail shelves, thus, transparent packaging solutions are proving to be very effective. PET sealing films are mainly heat-sealable, owing to which they are used as lids on different types of containers. PET sealing films are also used as release liners to seal products such as trays, boxes, and other containers. The PET sealing films market is estimated to witness noticeable growth in the upcoming years, as the demand for safe and secure packaging is also increasing across the globe. The different types of sealing methods are likely to vary from products to products as well as the type of package to be sealed.
