Quote from article
Demand for plastic film in the US is projected to grow 1.8 percent annually to 7.2 billion kilos in 2016 according to The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland-based industry market research firm. Advances will reflect the performance and source reduction advantages of plastic film over other packaging materials and opportunities in film products such as pouches for drugs and medical products, and in modified atmosphere packaging for food. Demand will also benefit from film’s use in manufacturing, shipping, and building construction. Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) will remain the leading film, accounting for almost one-half of the total in 2016.

Freedonia Study: Plastic Film (2955)

Quote from article
Demand for LLDPE film is forecast to increase 2.1 percent yearly to 7.5 billion pounds in 2016. This will result from the film’s versatility and from opportunities in areas such as produce and snack packaging, stretch and shrink wrap, and trash bags. Consumption of low density polyethylene film will rebound from the declines of the 2001-2011 period, benefiting from opportunities in shrink wrap, shipping sacks, and nonwoven disposables. High density polyethylene film demand will grow at a below average pace as a result of slow retail bag advances. Polypropylene film demand will expand 2.2 percent annually to 1.6 billion pounds in 2016, driven by produce, grain mill, dairy product, and other food packaging applications.
