Stretch & Shrink Film - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

The US stretch and shrink film market is forecast to grow 3.7% annually to $4.0 billion in 2021, driven by increased palletizing and shipping activity, growth in consumer spending and retail activity, and improvements in resin and machinery technology. Multilayer stretch films for pallet unitization and bundling applications will offer the best opportunities due to increased demand for stronger, thinner films.

This Freedonia study analyzes the $3.3 billion US stretch and shrink film market. It presents historical data (2006, 2011, 2016) and forecasts for 2021 by product (wrap, hoods, bags, labels), market (storage and distribution – pallet unitization and bundling; product packaging – food, paper and textile, beverages, and consumer), and resin (LLDPE, LDPE, PVC). In addition, the study evaluates company market share and offers competitive analysis on industry participants including Bemis, Berry Global, Inteplast, Intertape Polymer Group, Paragon Films, Sealed Air, and Sigma Plastics Group.
