Stretch & Shrink Films - The Global Market 2021


Stretch & Shrink Films - The Global Market 2021

Published: December 2020

Pallet stretch film, shrink hoods and stretch hoods represent a major segment of polyethylene packaging activity globally. All three films provide significant value within the supply chain as they afford a high level of pallet stability and load protection during transit and storage in an extremely cost-effective way. The demand for product is continuing to advance in all regions of the world, although the more established countries are seeing an increasing degree of maturity. The developing regions, however, are continuing to see major investment and growth in the application and this growth provides great opportunity to all players in the industry. Until recent years, the market for palletisation films has been essentially regional in nature; however, the dynamics now and in the future, particularly of the pallet stretch wrap market, are and will continue to be global in scope.

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 study builds on and expands AMI's successful reports Palletisation Films – The Global Market 2017 and Palletisation Films Europe 2019 and aims to help producers that are active in this market make the best investment and product development decisions.
