Market Dynamics

North America Stretch and Shrink Wrap Market Drivers

COVID has Propelled the Demand for Stretch and Shrink Films

The COVID outbreak has seriously impacted the world ecology, negatively affecting both daily life and industry. The food and beverage business has seen enormous demand throughout this epidemic period. The USD 900 billion per year global packaging business is on the front lines, with food packaging being its major activity area. This situation has mandated the requirement for a flexible and hygienic packaging method. In addition to COVID, rising customer demand for high-quality products and food safety is another factor driving the need for hygienic packaging. Due to the high cost of cold chain transportation, there is an increasing need for this type of packaging in China and India, where food is needed to be conveyed to rural areas.

North America Stretch and Shrink Wrap Market Restraints

Intense Competition by Conventional Packaging

The global demand for packaging exceeded USD 917.1 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to increase significantly over the next five years. Online and e-commerce shopping is expanding significantly at the same time. Stretch and shrink film manufacturers should expect fierce competition from traditional packaging methods like corrugated packaging, films, and containers. Since stretch and shrink films don't offer enough protection, many products on the global markets aren't wrapped in them. However, more research and development into the quality of stretch and shrink films is anticipated to boost their demand in global markets.
