Global Plastic Films Market: Key Trends

The following drivers, opportunities, and restraints characterize global plastic films market over the review period, from 2019 to 2027.

Huge Demand for Eco-friendly Packaging Solutions Boosts Market Growth

The plastic films market is likely to be driven by the growing demand from various end use sectors, mainly from the food and beverage segment. There has been a rise in the demand for eco-friendly and bioplastics owing to rising concern over environmental pollution. This adds fillip to the expansion of the global plastic films market. In addition, growing demand for flexible packaging could be observed in the market, thanks to its eco-friendly nature. Augmented demand for decorative laminates is likely to emerge as another growth factor for the market over the assessment tenure.

Growing demand for increased barrier film is likely to generate substantial revenue for the global plastic films market. Plastic films find abundant use in the barrier packaging segment, thanks to its unique properties. Plastic films safeguard the product from permeation of aroma, moisture, water, flavor, light, and oil. With the increased use of plastic films in barrier packaging, the product is able to retain its formulation and quality. Besides, it does away with the possibility of leakage to prevent damage to the product. Barrier films are gaining traction amongst various end use segments, such as automotive, textile, pharmaceuticals, and food. The final products from these industries need additional care for prolonged shelf life and the maintenance of their integrity. Such a factor is likely to influence the growth of the global plastic films market in forthcoming years.

On the other hand, stringent government rule and regulations together with the high cost of raw materials are estimated to obstruct the growth of the market over the assessment tenure. However, speciality and biodegradable films are likely to offer copious growth opportunities for the market in times to come
