The increasing demand for packaged food and pharmaceutical products in growing economies such as China, India, Turkey, Poland, Brazil, and Mexico is driving the global market for packaging film. Packaging film has been commercialized and used in packaging of food products, pharmaceutical and medical products, consumer products, industrial products, and others. Food packaging is the largest consumer of packaging film followed by pharmaceutical and medical packaging. However, pharmaceutical and medical packaging applications are expected to offer the highest growth during the next five years.

Speciality films such as EVOH, PLA, PVDC, and Polyamide are increasingly used in a number of applications and expected to generate new revenue pockets. Better barrier properties, mechanical strength, and chemical resistance of such films are making it popular in a number of packaging applications. Moreover, biodegradable and re-usable specialty films are presently preferred over conventional resin-based films in food and pharmaceutical packaging, especially in North America and Europe. The rising environmental concerns and new stricter regulations in North America and Europe against usage of non-biodegradable petroplastics are driving the growth for specialty films.
