Global demand for plastic films is forecast to grow by 4% per annum to 2021 reaching 73.3 million tonnes, according to Smithers Rapra. BOPP films have one of the highest growth rates of films during this period whilst PVC is forecast to show no growth due to competition from other plastic films.
LDPE/LLDPE and HDPE films and sheets segments are also anticipated to observe lucrative growth rate.
Growing global consumption is a major factor driving growth and demand from application industries and rising prominence of eco-friendly and water-soluble films have increased the utilisation of plastic films and sheets in the global market.
Active lifestyle, demographic changes and rising sustainability trends have been driving innovation and providing opportunities in key sectors and enhancing the value of plastic films. Growing demand in emerging economies of Asia Pacific, and Central and South America, is likely to augment the demand.
