Key Market Overview:
Polyolefin (POF) Shrink Film Market size was valued at USD 1.45 Billion in 2021, registering a CAGR growth of 5.59 % during the forecast period (2022-2030), and the market is projected to be valued at USD 2.37 Billion by 2030.
Polyolefin shrink film is an extremely durable and versatile premium shrink film. Such shrink films are known for their high clarity, durability, and low cost. Polyolefin shrink films have excellent tensile strength, puncture resistance, and seal strength, making them ideal for packaging irregular-shaped items. Polyolefin shrink film offers 80% shrinking properties along with better transparency and remains odorless when heated and cooled. Moreover, POF shrink films do not emit chloride on heating, which further increases the demand for the product across many end-use industries including food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and others. Polyolefin shrink film is FDA approved for food contact and is great for high-speed packaging applications, providing added strength without sacrificing clarity. Furthermore, pre-perforated polyolefin film is also available for an even-shrink surface with no air pockets.
The Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the polyolefin shrink films market. Increasing consumer demand for packaged goods, the growing food & beverage industry and the presence of numerous manufacturers in the region are some of the key factors attributing to the dominance of the region across the global POF shrink films market.
- Polyolefin shrink film is used in the food & beverage industry for packaging food and drinks to protect and preserve food products. This increasing demand for polyolefin shrink film in the food & beverage industries is driving market growth.
- The recycled polyolefin shrink film provides an eco-friendly alternative to traditional packaging materials and helps to reduce the carbon footprint of the manufacturing process. Thus, recyclable POF products are one of the key drivers supporting polyolefin (POF) shrink film market growth.
- The cost and availability of polyolefin (POF) shrink films are significantly impacted by the fluctuations in the prices of key raw materials, such as crude oil. This creates major restraints for businesses in the market, as it increases the cost and uncertainty in production. Thus, hindering the market growth of the product.
- Presence of alternative packaging materials such as paper, biodegradable plastics, and glass is restraining the market growth of polyolefin shrink films.
Technological advancements in the production of polyolefin shrink films are anticipated to provide growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period. For instance, the development of improved formulations of polyolefin shrink film, such as high barrier shrink film, to meet specific customer requirements and increase the overall performance and quality of POF shrink film. Moreover, the integration of smart packaging solutions, such as RFID and QR codes, into polyolefin shrink film is expected to further increase the functionality of packaging and enhance supply chain efficiency in the future.
