BOPP Films Market Highlights Over 2020-2029

Biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films market is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-2029, owing to its wide application in food packaging backed by its inherent moisture barrier properties, sealing ability, and durability. These films also increases the shelf life and enhances the on-shelf appeal of the packaged product, which tends to be a limitation with the cling films. The rising trend of flexible plastic packaging combined with the need for contamination resistant food packaging, especially due to the growing concern for the COVID 19 pandemic, is estimated to drive the market growth. Moreover, BOPP films can be recycled multiple times, are biodegradable and non-toxic. Increasing use of BOPP is estimated to reduce plastic waste, which in turn, is anticipated to boost the market growth throughout the forecast period. It is estimated that over 100 million tons of plastic is consumed worldwide each year.


The global BOPP film market is segmented by material type into silica-based, aluminum-based, polymer-based, and others, out of which, the polymer based segment is estimated to hold the largest share during the forecast period owing to its highly inert chemical properties, moisture barrier properties and sealing ability. Ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) is a copolymer, commonly used as an oxygen barrier in food packaging. Owing to its moldable, flexible, printable and protective properties, EVOH is the most prominently used polymer for manufacturing BOPP films.

 On the basis of end-users, the fast-moving consumer goods segment is estimated to garner the largest share by the end of 2029 on account of increasing demand for packaged consumer goods. The modern fast paced lifestyle has resulted in an elevated consumption of ready-to-eat food and pre-packaged drinks over freshly cooked food. This, as a result, is raising the need amongst the food manufacturers to increasingly use BOPP films for the packaging of such food products, which is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the segment. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
