Stretch & Shrink Film


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Stretch & Shrink Film

Growth in the US stretch & shrink film market will total 3.5% annually through 2019 in value terms. Gains will be driven by rising demand for stretch and shrink labels in product packaging. Overall growth in nondurable goods shipments will also boost sales.

Stretch Hoods Gaining Share
Stretch film will remain the larger of the two industries through 2019. Among stretch film products, fastest growth is expected for stretch hoods, which will continue to gain share over shrink hoods in pallet wrapping applications.

Shrink Label Pacing Growth
Shrink film will see above average gains through 2019. Advances will benefit from strong increases in shrink labels, which provide high visibility and graphics characteristics in primary and secondary product packaging.

Opportunities in Beverage Markets
Stretch & shrink films markets are split between storage & distribution (primarily pallet wrap) and product packaging, which will see similar growth rates through 2019. In product packaging, best opportunities are in the beverage market, where shrink sleeve overwraps and stretch & shrink labels are increasingly popular.
