Bi-axially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) Market: Snapshot
The global market for bi-axially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) market is growing and one of the key factors for its growth is the high demand from labeling, packaging, printing, and lamination applications. The demand for bi-axially oriented polypropylene is also increasing from pharmaceutical and cosmetic packaging sectors. The growing inclination of consumers towards spending increasingly on personal wellbeing will help the bi-axially oriented polypropylene market to grow. The growing awareness among consumers towards food preservation is also boosting the growth of the market.
The wavering price of crude oil will negatively impact the BOPP market as polypropylene is a derivate of crude oil. On the other hand, the application of BOPP as tapes in industrial packaging will drive the growth prospects of the global bi-axially oriented polypropylene market. The superior strength offered by BOPP along with high clarity are two important reasons for being preferred across industrial packaging sector. BOPP films are more flexible, a packaging solution. This ensures faster packaging and improved sealing properties, attracting several manufacturers in the food and non-food packaging industries to replace their conventional packaging materials. Bi-axially oriented polypropylene has abilities such as reprocessing and recyclability which are further strengthening their demand in packaging applications. Metalized bi-axially oriented polypropylene adds sparkle to packaging and thus, they are much in demand for gift wrapping and decorative packaging. All these factors will ensure a continued demand for bi-axially oriented polypropylene in the period from 2017 to 2025.
