Synthetic papers offer different functionalities for a variety of applications in various industries, such as food & beverages, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals for packaging & labeling and printing. Synthetic papers are not only durable and water-proof but also possess chemical resistance, tear resistance, and oil resistance. These superior performance characteristics, coupled with their outstanding printability, have gained synthetic papers a wide acceptance as materials of choice across various end user industries.

The size of the global synthetic paper market is estimated to be USD 275.4 Million in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 386.5 Million by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2015 to 2020. The Asia-Pacific region is the global leader, in terms of consumption of synthetic paper and this dominance is expected to continue till 2020. Japan is the key market in this region, which contributes to more than 30% of the total demand for synthetic paper, followed by China, where the consumption rate is increasing steadily. The increase in the consumption of synthetic paper in packaging & labeling, food & beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and printing industries has been observed in the Asia-Pacific region owing to continuous industrialization along with rise in the manufacturing sector in the region. The continuous growth and innovations as well as industrial consolidations are projected to ascertain a bright future for this market in the coming years.

Packaging & labeling and printing industries are the two major end user industries of synthetic paper. Their growth is driven by the rising affluence of the middle class in the developing countries, coupled with a rapid rate of urbanization which has led to a rise in the consumerism opportunities, such as a high demand for consumer goods and lifestyle services in this market. The increase in spending in the construction sector in the emerging economies, such as China, India and Taiwan is also expected to fuel the synthetic paper demand over the next few years.

The global synthetic paper market was valued at USD 257.9 Million in 2014 and is expected to reach USD 386.5 Million by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period, 2015 to 2020.

Synthetic paper is widely used in labeling applications and is available in different grades depending on the application for which it is to be used. Synthetic paper is made of synthetic resins derived from petroleum. Synthetic paper is chemical resistant, tear resistant, oil resistance, and moisture resistant. It is commonly used for making banners, maps, charts, book covers, driving licenses, restaurant menus, and instruction manuals, among others. Synthetic paper is also used in different types of labels which are used in bags, clothes, luggage, and other products for the purpose of identification and marking.

Synthetic papers are eco-friendly, as they do not contain any natural fibers. They are also known for their 100% recyclability. Synthetic papers vary in opacity. The demand for advanced and high quality synthetic papers is gradually increasing owing to the implementation of stringent regulations by various governments for environment protection, unique properties of synthetic paper, and increased utilization of labels and tags in different products.

The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest-growing market for synthetic paper as it is one of the major consumers of synthetic paper. This is due to increase in the usage of synthetic paper in the food & beverages industries of the region. The demand for synthetic paper is increasing in the developed as well as developing countries, such as Japan, China, Taiwan, India, Australia, and other countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

To meet the growing demand for synthetic paper, several top manufacturers from the U.S. and Europe are now focusing on the Asia-Pacific region for the expansion of their synthetic paper businesses. Increasing spending capacity of the consumers in the emerging economies, such as India and China is expected to drive the demand for synthetic paper. The synthetic paper market in this region is projected to register a CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period, 2015 to 2020.

The BOPP segment is expected to lead the global market in 2015 and account for a market share of 60.5% in the global market. It is expected to be followed by the HDPE segment.  The non-label application segment dominated the global market in 2014 and accounted for a market share of 57.6%. The label application segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.8% between 2015 and 2020 and is expected to sustain its leading position in the global market till 2020.

Huge investments have been made in the last few years by some key companies, such as Nan Ya Plastics Corporation (Taiwan), Yupo Corporation (Japan), Arjobex SAS (France), American Profol Inc.(U.S.), Hop Industries Corporation (U.S.), PPG Industries, Inc. (U.S.), Relyco Sales, Inc. (U.S.), Transilwrap Company, Inc. (U.S.), Seiko Epson Corporation (Japan), MDV Papier-und Kunststoffveredelung GmbH (Germany), and Agfa-Gevaert N.V. (Belgium) to strengthen their position the global synthetic paper market.
