The plastic films and plastic sheets market is expected to grow at a decent pace during the coming decade, driven by its increasing application in food and pharmaceutical packaging. Plastic films & sheets are primarily made of polyethylene and polypropylene. Flexible, semi-rigid, and rigid films are used for packaging and non-packaging purposes; however, flexible plastic films are fast gaining market share over the others. The report estimates global market size in terms of volume and revenue.

Plastic films and plastic sheets are essential for quality and shelf-life of food, pharmaceutical, and other personal care products. In packaging food industry is the major consumer for plastic films and sheets followed by the pharmaceutical and medical packaging. In non-packaging agriculture is the major consumer for plastic film & plastic sheets. Moreover, construction and consumer goods industry find wide non-packaging application of films and sheets. Films are also used in consumer electronics to make flat panel displays and back cover of mobile phones.

These films are formed by extrusion-blown, extrusion-cast, and extrusion-coating process. Selection of the raw material is primarily based on the end-usage of the films. The key raw materials used in plastic film and sheets include LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, BOPP, CPP, BOPET, PVC, EVOH, PLA, PVDC, PVOH, polycarbonate and others.

Geographically, Asia-Pacific is the major market with around 33% of the market share in 2012. The global consumption is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2013 to 2018. In terms of value, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2013 to 2018. China and India are expected to drive the plastic film and sheets market in the future. Increasing demand for packaged food and improving health care infrastructure is the major reason for growth in China and India.

Global Plastic films and sheets: Market Consumption, by Geography, 2012

Plastic Films and Plastic Sheets Market

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

In terms of raw materials, polyethylene leads the market, representing 64% of the total raw materials used in 2012. However, polyethylene films demand is growing at a faster rate than polyethylene films. BOPP is the mostly used raw material for flexible plastic films and plastic sheets. In matured geographies such as North America and Europe, specialty films are gaining the demand.

Ever increasing application of plastic film & plastic sheets in food packaging and agricultural applications, and untapped Asia-Pacific market is presenting good outlook for this industry. Even though polyethylene is used as a key material for plastic films and sheets production, polypropylene is slowly becoming the preferred choice especially in the packaging application. Specifically, BOPP films market is growing at a significant rate during the recent years. In non-packaging, agriculture industry posts good opportunity for the plastic film and plastic sheets market.

Geographically, Asia-Pacific is expected to lead the plastic films and plastic sheets market during the next five years. China and India are the two most growing nations in terms of plastic film and sheets consumption. In developed nations, demand for conventional plastic film is growing at a slow pace. However, specialty and high barrier films are gaining importance in these regions.
