Palletisation Films Europe 2016

Palletisation Films Europe 2016

Date of Publication: February 2016

Currently, many millions of euros are lost annually as a result of goods becoming damaged in transit. This trend has been on the increase as a result of downgauging across all levels of packaging, i.e. primary, secondary and tertiary. For example significant downgauging has occurred with plastic bottles, collation shrink film and pallet stretch wrap, any or all of which can have a serious impact on the overall load stability. Companies need to understand that it is the optimisation of the overall packaging system that is critical to the safe transport of palletised goods. Film extrusion technologies and advances in raw material characteristics will continue to facilitate cost reduction without compromising film performance and safety criteria.

Because of the strong competition among the different film types and the significant investment required by both the end-user customer and film producers, all stages of the supply chain require a strong level of commitment to the business.

For these reasons it has never been more important for players in the market to be armed with the best possible information in order to develop successful strategies and benefit from market opportunities as they arise. This new study builds on previous editions (2003, 2006, 2009 and 2013).

The study addresses the following issues:

  • Demand by film type and growth prospects within each country
  • Impact expected from material, machinery and a final product development
  • Raw material prices and the impact on production
  • End-use segments, growth prospects and the drivers
  • Changes in European industrial structure and the supply chain
  • Leading players and production volume by film type
  • Impact of imports from the Middle East, the Far East and the USA on Europe
