Global Cling Films Market to Reach US$ 2.1 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Expanding Food and Beverage Industry

February 25, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Cling Films Market Report by Material Type (Polyethylene, Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene, PVC, PVDC, and Others), Form (Cast Cling Film, Blow Cling Film), Thickness (Up to 9 Micron, 9 to 12 Micron, Above 12 Micron), End Use Industry (Food, Healthcare, Consumer Goods, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," finds that the global cling films market reached a value of US$ 1.4 Billion in 2023. Cling films, also known as plastic wraps, are thin, transparent plastic sheets manufactured from polyvinylidene chloride (PVC), polyethylene, and polyvinylidene dichloride (PVDC). They are widely used for packaging various edible and non-edible items as they adhere to themselves and other smooth surfaces. They are also utilized to seal and secure food products, keep flowers fresh, line shelves, and prevent freezer burns. They exhibit excellent tensile strength, heat resistance, transparency, and adhesive properties. In recent years, cling films have gained traction over traditionally used shrink films due to their higher flexibility and ability to wrap multiple products together.

Global Cling Films Market Trends:

Cling films are extensively used for packaging food items in containers to prevent dust, insects, and microbial contamination, extend their shelf life, maintain freshness, and reduce the risks of food spoilage and wastage. As a result, the expanding food and beverage (F&B) industry and the shifting consumer preferences toward packaged food represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Besides this, the escalating demand for frozen meat and seafood products is another major growth-inducing factor. Additionally, the growing need for sustainable packaging across various end use sectors, including healthcare and consumer goods, has accelerated the adoption of cling films. Furthermore, several key players are launching innovative product variants, such as biodegradable, compostable, and high-gloss cling films, to expand their product portfolio and consumer base. Along with this, the rising popularity of natural polymer-based cling films as an environment-friendly and cost-effective alternative to non-biodegradable petroleum-based synthetic films has catalyzed the product demand. Other factors, including the widespread product usage to wrap medical devices, the emerging trend of online food ordering, and increasing applications of bio-based cling films, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 2.1 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 4.19% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
