Pallet stretch films in NAFTA

Date of publication: 2008

In the last 20 years pallet stretch film has been one of the success stories of the NAFTA plastics and packaging industry. Strong demand from customer industries combined with a real competitive advantage against other forms of pallet stabilization has resulted in sustained growth in the developed markets of the region, USA and Canada, and accelerating growth in Mexico.
