BOPP Films - The Global Market 2022

BOPP Films - The Global Market 2022

Published: June 2022

BOPP film continues to be a highly successful flexible polymer substrate, with growth in demand every year since its original development in the 1960s as a replacement for cellulose films. Its use has expanded to encompass applications in a vast range of packaging and industrial products.  

The high growth rate has encouraged waves of investment in production capacity, creating pressure on margins and periods of oversupply as new lines begin production. Thanks to these investment cycles and the volatility of raw material resin pricing and supply in recent years, competition is intense. Companies look to differentiate themselves, by specialising in value-added or commodity products, or becoming a solution provider and ‘one-stop-shop’ for customers around the world.

Owing to the shifting structure and changing nature of demand, it is important for you to obtain the best possible data analysis in order to develop successful strategies and benefit from market opportunities as they arise.

The report provides an accurate and detailed assessment of the current state of the BOPP film market around the world and detail demand in each region by film type and end use markets.
