Palletisation Films - The European Market 2019

Palletisation Films - The European Market 2019

Date of Publication: July 2019

Since pallet stretch films became the unitisation method of choice and so replacing cardboard, strapping and polyethylene shrink hoods as tertiary packaging mediums, the European palletisation market has been driven by development of high performing films and recapitalisation of old lines although individual countries have embraced innovation at different speeds. As the sector continues seeing strong growth for the latest arrival, stretch hoods, polyethylene film solutions to the stabilisation and protection of goods in transit have become the norm and their future will be influenced by factors including downgauging, change in resin composition, a call to sustainability and use of bio-material as well as stricter legislation on road safety recently introduced by the European Union.

For all these reasons it has never been more important for players in the market to be armed with the best possible information to develop successful strategies and benefit from market opportunities as they arise. This study provides companies with a detailed, independent assessment of the European market for products that stabilise and protect palletised goods during storage and transit, looking at both past and present trends and developments and giving a studied medium term forecast, which will assist companies with their future investment and a decision-making process in general.

The report:

  • Quantifies current and future demand for film;
  • Provides estimates of the production of pallet stretch wrap, shrink hoods and stretch hoods and demand for each film type in each geographical market with a forecast to 2023;
  • Examines material usage, highlighting the advantages/disadvantages that each material may give the end-user and trends affecting changes in film formulation;
  • Provides a detailed analysis of the industry structure and the way in which suppliers are reorganising;
  • Profiles the major palletisation film producers, highlighting their market position, resin usage and strategies.
