Key Market Trends
Increasing Demand of Packaged Food Offers Potential Growth
The food industry is the largest end-user of plastic films and has seen continued, strong growth due to a rise in convenient packaging for ready-to-eat foods, snacks, frozen meals, and cake mixes.
Factors such as convenience to flexibility, strong sealing strength, and vacuum finish are positively influencing the plastic film market growth.
Moreover, scientists across the globe are working on different technologies which could result in increasing shelf-life of the packaged food. Recently in September 2019, Washington State University scientists experimented a metal oxide which when coated to a layer of the plastic film, would significantly increase the shelf life of the food. This metal oxide was tasted on cheese and tested after three years of storage and found the taste was as good as the previous version that was stored for nine months.
They are working closely with the US Army to improve their "Meals Ready to Eat" (MREs) to stay tasty and healthy for three years. Such advancement in technology is expected to have a positive outlook on the market.
Additionally, with the growth of the packaged food industry in developing nations like India, it can be inferred that the overall packaged food industry will flourish. Additionally, Accenture predicted that by 2050, 66% of the world's population will be staying in the urban area and thus in return it will help in the growing packaged food industry, which in return would help in the flourishing of the plastic film market in the packaged food industry.
Asia- Pacific to Witness Fastest Growth
Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth because of the presence of two highly populated countries i.e. China and India. In these two countries, the increase in disposable income will act as a supplement for the growth of industries such as food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, pet food, and cosmetics which in return will help in flourishing the plastic film market.
Moreover, global vendors are entering the Indian market through strategic partnerships. This is expected to shape the plastic film market in the region. In September 2019, Huhtamaki Oyj added a manufacturing unit in India to speed up growth by acquiring a national vendor Mohan Mutha Polytech Private Limited (MMPPL). This acquisition would enhance the customer base in the region, especially in the food and beverage sector.
