Global Plastic Films Market Size Thriving Beyond USD 224.88 Billion by 2030 | Growing Adoption of Plastic Films in the F&B Industry


The increasing demand for the BOPP (Bi-Axially Oriented Polypropylene) films for insulation and food packaging application is going to escalate the market growth of the plastic films. Also, the usage of plastic films for manufacturing medical bags is going to provide a potential opportunity for the market to flourish in future.

Newark, Oct. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 88.39 billion in 2020 global plastic films market will reach USD 224.88 billion in 2030. A thin, continuous kind of plastic material that is sliced into sheets is known as plastic film. The plastic films are constructed from various raw materials, including polypropylene, polyethene, polyvinyl chloride, and others. Plastic film can be transparent, clear, rough, smooth, opaque, embossed, coloured, printed, multilayered, single-layered, or semi-transparent, depending on the raw material used in its production. Plastic film usage is widespread throughout several end-user sector verticals, including agriculture, construction, consumer goods, and food packaging. The plastic films are specifically utilized for packaging and non-packaging purposes.

Advancement in market

The completion of a seed round totalling £3 million in grants and equity was announced by FlexSea. With the financing, the business can commercialize several sustainable packaging solutions it has created using polymers made from seaweed. The goal is to address the disastrous effects that conventional plastics have on the ecosystem, especially the single-use plastic items that linger in the ocean for hundreds of years after being thrown away. The FlexSea biodegradable polymers, on the other hand, decompose in a matter of weeks in the soil or the water. The pattern of plastic consumption by humans and the trajectory of our planet’s sustainability could both be altered through FlexSea.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Demand for Bi-Axially Oriented Polypropylene Films is Growing.

The market growth of plastic films will accelerate due to the rising demand for BOPP (Bi-Axially Oriented Polypropylene) films for insulation and food packaging applications. Due to their superior thermal insulating qualities compared to wax sheets and cellophane, BOPP films have been increasingly used for packaging in recent years. Electronics, food packaging, cosmetics, insulation, and other industries use BOPP films extensively. Since BOPP films have excellent tensile strength and lending characteristics like rigidity, they may be stretched in two directions. Because of these qualities, BOPP films have a promising future in all packaging applications. Additionally, the BOPP’s ability to be recycled is increasing market demand.

Restraints: Availability of alternatives.

The primary market alternatives to plastic film are made of aluminium. The use of as a packaging material is expanding in the food packaging sector. The demand for packaged food products to have longer shelf lives and the growing acceptance of aluminium as flexible packaging are the driving forces behind the expansion of aluminium packaging. To develop the ability to recycle and reuse aluminium packaging, businesses are heavily investing in R&D. Therefore, for the time being, this issue will constrain market growth and development.

Opportunities: Growing Adoption of Plastic Films for Medical Use.

The future growth of the market may be facilitated by the use of plastic films in the manufacture of medical bags. Plastic films provide several advantages over glass bottles, including increased shelf life, reduced bacterial contamination, breakage resistance, and shipping of plastic bags. In addition, medical bags are frequently used in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors, typically when cheap packaging options are needed and readily available in large quantities.

Challenges: Fluctuations in the price of raw materials.

The price volatility for plastic raw materials like polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and others is a result of the continual fluctuations in the price of oil. Because they are oil derivatives, these materials are subject to price changes. Oil prices have been extremely unstable for the previous three to four years because of the rising global demand, foreign involvement, and war strife in the Middle East. Therefore, the raw material price volatility may limit market expansion in the near term.
