Applied Market Information, with its unrivalled knowledge and understanding of the dynamics and development of polyethylene applications around the world, has published this new and detailed market study on the fast-moving and ever-changing global pallet stretch film market.
The demand for product is continuing to advance in all regions of the world, although the more established countries are seeing some degree of maturity. However, the developing nations of the world are continuing to see major investment and growth in the application offering great opportunity to all players in the industry.
It is clear that, although the current market for stretch film is regional in nature, the dynamics of the market in the future will result in an industry more global in scope. This is evidenced by more export-oriented plants being commissioned around the world and the way in which trade has an increasing influence on the market. Often the development of production in a new global region is accompanied by significant advantages in raw material availability and price, low energy cost and low transport costs.
The new study provides the tools and database with which to address these issues. This will enable companies to formulate coherent plans for their future progress within the pallet stretch film industry and to prepare meaningful market strategies to exploit business opportunities to the full.
