BOPP films - the global market

BOPP films - the global market

Date of publication: April 2016

This study highlights the development of the market for BOPP films over the period 2010-2015 how it is responding to global volatilities,  the implications of upcoming investment and how the market is likely to develop going forward over the period 2015-2020.

While for much of the 21st Century the main focus of investment has been in China (by far the largest market), the fastest growth in investment in recent years has been in India which has seen capacity nearly double over the past five years, driven by the opening up of its retail sector and the growth in consumer spending on packaged goods.  The movement of converting operations to countries with lower labour costs is also having implications for the future location of BOPP film operations around the world with investors looking at new locations in areas such as Eastern Europe, North Africa and Central America.

At the same time slowing growth, tighter margins and greater competition is driving structural change as newer players in China, India and the Middle East have emerged as the global leaders replacing the traditional market leaders and developers of BOPP film based in Europe, North America or Japan.

Given the shifting structure and changing nature of demand it has never been more important for players in the market to be armed with the best possible information in order to develop successful strategies and benefit from market opportunities as they arise.  AMI's report on the global BOPP film market provides an accurate and detailed assessment of the current state of the BOPP film market around the world and details demand in each region by film type and end use markets.  It provides an invaluable source of information for any company currently manufacturing film or serving the BOPP industry and for those companies considering market entry or a new investment. The detailed analysis, statistical database and company profiles which the report gives will enable companies to formulate coherent strategic plans for their future development within the BOPP industry and prepare meaningful market strategies to fully exploit business opportunities.

Within each region the study provides comprehensive information as follows:

  • Supply and demand for BOPP films including imports and exports
  • Capacity by country
  • Production by country
  • An analysis of the industry structure
  • Market share of the leading players
  • Demand by country
