Growing end-use market

  • Increase in growth for soft drinks, beverage packaging and packaged foods in Europe is the major driver for stretch films demand
  • Increasing demand from bulk-packaging requirements and tertiary packaging pallet unitization in warehousing and distribution segments remains one of the key drivers of stretch films market Consumer buying pattern
  • Growing bulk consumption of beverages with the growth of large format retail stores and hypermarkets
  • With growing disposable incomes of middle-class population in countries like Germany, France, Belgium, Iberia, etc. consumers are increasingly attracted towards packages like multipacks
  • Increase in e-commerce and online purchasing is one of the boosters for stretch films demand in the region

Strong performance features

  • In addition to increasing mechanical strength and heat stability light-weighting through down- gauging can help to reduce carbon footprint without compromising on the performance
  • Stretch films can also be easily recycled, landfilled or incinerated after usage



  • Increase in usage of reusable pallet wraps can act as replacement for stretch films in the region

Impact of Plastic bans

  • Increase in regulations across Europe would act as a major deterrent for stretch films demand in the region, as the manufacturers are looking to shift to other biodegradable packaging alternatives other than fossil-based packaging
