Cling Film Market to Grow at a Moderate CAGR of 5% By 2029

The market for cling films or plastic wraps has been growing on back of increasing demand for flexible and transparent packaging formats across various sectors. Driven by their durability and cost-efficiency, cling films are helpful in increasing shelf life of products. In addition, cling films exhibit excellent tear resilience, making them suitable a household product.

On the contrary, raw materials of cling films, including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polyethylene (PE), are non-recyclable or require significant duration for getting decomposed. Governments globally are imposing regulations regarding reduced consumption of plastics. As a result, manufacturers are turning to sustainable alternatives, such as bioplastics. Derived from natural sources, bioplastics exhibit properties akin to conventional plastics.

PVC and PE Witness Significant Traction

PVC and PE continue their hegemony in cling film market holding voluminous share, reveals FMI. This is majorly attributed to their lightweight properties that enable easy handling and transportation. PVC and PE deliver resistance against moisture, corrosion, and chemicals. Furthermore, PVC and PE can be easily molded into various shapes and are cost-effective.  However, both the plastics are receiving backlash from regulatory authorities due to their slow-paced decomposition.

Analysts at FMI suggest that “Cling film market is set to grow promisingly against the backdrop of booming food, healthcare, and FMCG industries. Although non-recyclability of plastics is hindering market growth, onset of bioplastics is set to sustain worthwhile revenues over next decade.”
