DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zl348s/stretch_and) has announced the addition of the "Stretch and Shrink Films Market in the US 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The Stretch and Shrink market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 3.76% over the period 2014-2019
Stretch and shrink films are highly engineered polythene films used for packaging goods. These films have special chemical properties, which make them differ in their flexibility and stretchability. Stretch films are stretchable, elastic thin polythene films used to wrap around pallet loads. Shrink films are thin films that are wrapped around a single product or commodity and require the application of heat for packing. These films help prevent the spoilage of goods from air and moisture, thus enhancing the quality of packaged products.
One of the major trends emerging in this market is the increased usage of the linear low-density polyethylene resin compared to the low-density polyethylene resin. The LLDPE resin makes the films more flexible and transparent.
According to the report, one of the major drivers of the market is the demand for high-quality flexible packaging films. Stretch films are widely used to wrap consumer goods and food products. High-quality flexible packaging films reduce the cost of production and are environmentally friendly.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges that the market faces is increased competition between local and multinational vendors in the market. Vendors who can deliver large shipments make it difficult for new vendors to enter the market.
