Palletisation films the global market


Palletisation films the global market

Published: April 2017

Currently, billions of US dollars 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 pallet 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.

The new study, ‘Palletisation Films – Global Market 2017’, gives details of the supply/demand for pallet stretch wrap, shrink hoods and stretch hoods in each region of the world with particular focus on the region specific and film type specific market drivers and inhibitors, production volumes of the leading film producers, in addition to discussing changes in film formulations and trends in the use of specific resins in each of the product areas. This new study builds on previous editions of The Global Stretch Film report but has been expanded by the pallet stretch and shrink hood variations.

Because of the strong competition among the different film types and the significant investment required by both the end-user customer and film producers, 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.
