Stretch & Shrink Films Market | IndustryARC
Rapid development of the cosmetics industry increased demand for the stretch & shrink films market

Stretch & shrink films market size is forecast to reach US$21.4 billion by 2027 after growing at a CAGR of 51.2% during 2022-2027. The stretch & shrink films market’s expansion can be attributed to the increasing substitution of conventional packaging materials with stretch and shrink films. Materials including linear low density polyethylene (LDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and other similar materials improve the stretch and shrink film’s flexible packaging capabilities, which is useful for package durability. The stretch and shrink market is primarily driven by the growth of the food and beverage industry. Also, the growing demand from the cosmetics industry for stretch & shrink labels is anticipated to further boost the stretch & shrink films industry growth during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

In the year 2020 and 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic impacted the supply chain which resulted in the shortage of raw material for the manufacturing of stretch and shrink films, this negatively impacted the growth of the market. Furthermore, because of the supply chain disruption, raw material exports also declined, which resulted in the shortage of raw material. For instance, according to the International Trade Centre (ITC), in the year 2019, the total exports of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) across the world was US$23.78 billion, and in 2020 it was US$21.32 billion, a decline of 11.5%. However, in the year 2021, production activities were boosted across the countries to foster the economic growth of the countries, this resulted in the growth of the market. Also, it is projected that the Covid-19 pandemic will end by the end of 2022, which will result in market situations before the Covid-19 pandemic.

Stretch & Shrink Films Market Segment Analysis – By Raw Material

The polyethylene segment held the largest share in the stretch & shrink films market in 2021 and is growing at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2022-2027. The polyethylene materials such as low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and more are increasingly been utilized in stretch & shrink films, owing to the polyethylene’s superior seal, shelf life, and printability. Polyethylene materials are expected to have growing demands as compared to other raw materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), because polyethylene materials are stronger, tougher, and can withstand high temperatures. These factors are anticipated to fuel the demand for polyethylene during the forecast period.
