Polyethylene Film Industry Report by Regional Category Spend, Price Analysis, Key Demand, and Price Indicators, and Best Buying Practices

The global Polyethylene Film market reached a volume of about 57.89 MMT in 2021. The industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 3.75% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach a volume of about 72.21 MMT by 2027.


The global Polyethylene Film industry report gives a comprehensive analysis of the industry, including key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, the competitive landscape, and other essential market aspects. The product's application in the packaging segment drives the market's growth. In the industry report, the key demand indicator is the highest category spender by region—Asia Pacific.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Polyethylene film or PE film is a kind of plastic manufactured from ethylene; a hydrocarbon mainly derived from natural gas or petroleum. It is a continuous polymeric substance that is very thin. "Sheet" refers to a thicker plastic substance. These thin plastic membranes divide spaces or volumes, store goods, operate as barriers, and provide printing surfaces. The films are utilised for several functions, involving packaging, plastic bags, labels, building construction, landscaping, electrical fabrication, photographic film, film stock for movies, videotape, and others. The Polyethylene Film industry report comprises segments by end-use (Food and Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, Consumer Goods, Industrial) and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, and South America).

The Asia Pacific Region is Driving the Growth of the Industry

The Asia Pacific region holds the largest market share in the industry because of two densely populated nations, China and India. The rise in disposable income in these two nations would boost the expansion of businesses such as food and drinks, medicines, pet food, and cosmetics, resulting in a booming plastic film industry. The Asia Pacific market for PE films would be controlled by demand from end-use sectors such as packaged food and beverage packaging applications, boosting market growth for PE films. Cost minimisation and sustainability will focus on product development in the industry during the coming years.

The industry is being driven by the product's extensive application in the packaging segment. The film has various properties, including being lightweight, having strong barrier qualities, and being recyclable and reused. It is widely used in food and beverage, construction, agricultural, and domestic applications. It can be utilised as a vapour barrier, window film, countertop protection, and roofing material. It may also be used to seal rooms, cover building materials, and be employed in lead abatement projects, which is a prominent market trend that pushes the usage of PE films in construction applications. As a result, the market is augmenting. Furthermore, with the rise of e-commerce, protective packaging, such as plastic films and wraps, is seeing a significant increase. This pattern is predicted to continue to assist the market's growth in the future.

However, rigorous rules on plastic recyclability are likely to act as a market restraint.

Best Procurement Practices

The global Polyethylene Film industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major global Polyethylene Film regions, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

Plastic films are generally made of thermoplastics and are created by melting. Extrusion of plastics can produce a cooled or quenched film before being coiled on a roll. It is then Stretched, thinned, and orientated in one or two directions. The blown or tubular method expands the film by forcing air into an extruded ring. Before annealing, flat tenter frames stretch the extruded film, and calender rolls can be used to make hot polymer film. Another method of film formation is solution deposition. Skiving is a technique for removing a film from a solid core. Extruding two or more layers of different polymers into a single film is known as coextrusion. Lamination is the process of sandwiching two or more films (or other materials) together. Extrusion coating is employed to create a film onto another film or substrate. Roll slitting is a standard method of forming plastic films into rolls. Additional layer or printing techniques are frequently employed. Physical vapour deposition can be used to generate metallised films from films. Films can undergo corona treatment or plasma processing, and release agents can be added.

Rise in Demand for HDPE Film, Further Driving the Procurement of Polyethylene Film

The industry is being propelled by the rise in demand for HDPE film; they are moisture-resistant, making them ideal for packaging breakfast cereals, mainly flakes. Furthermore, HDPE films can protect groundwater from harmful compounds commonly released during oil drilling and landfills. These films are essential for keeping ocean lead out of shipbuilding operations, and they may be used to slow down run-off on hill sites. As a result of dynamic consumer choice, the industry's manufacturing machinery and production processes are stimulated with technical advancements, giving PE films an advantage over competing packaging equivalents and therefore providing an impetus to the market expansion of PE films. Top resin producers create mPE (Metallocene Polyethylene) resins with better physical strength than LDPE and PVC films. Because of their sanitary characteristics, they might be employed in food and pharmaceutical packaging. The primary emphasis of product development in this category is the use of biodegradable and sustainable films, downgauging, and other significant effects.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into Europe, North America, South America, the Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa.
