Pallet Shrink Film Packaging Market: Overview

Among the packaging industry, flexible packaging is one of the fastest growing segments and is widely replacing rigid packaging segment for various applications. One of this types of flexible packaging is the shrink films which are highly used across the supply chain. Manufacturers usually use Shrink films packaging to stabilize heavy and unstable load types that are placed on pallets. Shrink wraps/films are loosely covered around a product/loads which are placed on pallets & then this film shrinks tightly when exposed to heat. Shrink films are heated with the use of heat gun that releases hot air or in another case, shrink packed products are passed through shrink tunnels. Pallet shrink film is usually made from polyolefin plastics. Pallet shrink film is typically employed to protect products from external factors such as dust and thus firmly combine smaller objects together. Pallet shrink film is widely used for covering foods & beverages across the globe and is also used for packaging of consumer products, pharmaceuticals, and other industrial products.

Pallet Shrink Film Packaging Market: Drivers and Restraints

The market for pallet shrink film is anticipated to be driven by growth in the consumption of packaged food and beverages products across the globe. Pallet shrink films are weather resistant, provides the least amount of packaging damage during logistics and transportation are also breathable in nature. These all factors appeal the manufacturers across the globe to use pallet shrink films/wraps and thus drive the growth of the global pallet shrink film packaging market.  However, higher machine cost used in heating shrink films is the major drawbacks of pallet shrink film. Moreover, Biodegradability has arisen as environmental challenges thus hampering the growth of pallet shrink film market to a great extent. As a result, promotion of bio-based materials by governments of various countries has emerged as an opportunity to develop biodegradable pallet shrink film for market players.
