The pre-stretch film is one of the largest growing segments in the stretch film industry. Many industries have started using pre-stretch film over the conventional film for its cost saving. Pre-stretch is the process that allows the stretch film to be stretched before being applied to a load or object. The pre-stretch film possesses the qualities such as film memory, stretch consistency, excellent puncture properties, less waste disposal. The pre-stretch film is fabricated using superior grade polymer material and is non-toxic, stretchable and resistant to oil, water & grease.
The global pre-stretch film market is projected to grow rapidly as a result of increasing demand for pre-stretch film over the forecast period. High load stability, high tear, puncture resistance and high clarity over the conventional film key factors fuelling the growth of the market.
Affordability is a key factor fuelling the adoption of pre-stretch films as the capital investment is reduced by 25% to 30% by using these films. The full stretch potential property of these films saves energy and also reduces risk of injury. Increasing demand for opaque pre-stretch film to conceal load and prevent theft and UV intrusion is another driving factor for the global pre-stretch film market.
Some of the key players of the global pre-stretch film market are Malpack Corp, Pelican Poly & Pallets Private Limited, U.S. Packaging and Wrapping LLC., Veritiv Corporation, Exxon Mobil Corporation, Trioplast Industrier AB, Noel, Intertape Polymer Group, Ergis and International Plastics. Various global companies are contributed decent growth to the global pre-stretch film market.
