Biaxial Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) is poly film that can be stretched in both directions, owing to which it offers premium durability. This poly film is laminated into woven polypropylene fabric and converted into a bag. BOPP bags are water resistant and can have high resolution graphics printed on them. Moreover, BOPP bags perform extremely well with paper bag filling equipment. The popularity of BOPP bags is rising in the market as they are cost effective and 100% recyclable, which makes them environment friendly. BOPP bags offer high aesthetic value that adds an extra promotional feature to the products packaged in them. These bags can be stacked easily and have high tensile strength and barrier properties. BOPP bags primarily find applications in the packaging of cereal & pulses, pet food, grass seed, animal nutrition, fertilisers, etc.
Excellent Printable Quality & Cost-Effectiveness Fuelling the Global Demand for BOPP Bags
In the past few years, brand awareness has become an important aspect in the packaging industry. Nowadays, manufacturers are looking for products that offer high printable quality, and this is fulfilled by BOPP bags. Furthermore, BOPP bags provide high aesthetic value that enhances the brand awareness. With increased population, the demand for agricultural products is increasing, which is boosting the demand for BOPP bags.
Moreover, the rising awareness about animal nutrition and pet food packaging is propelling the demand of BOPP bags. BOPP bags are preferred over other packaging as they are more cost-efficient as compared to other packaging types. BOPP provides dimensional stability, excellent water resistance properties and high-impact graphics that improve marketability. BOPP bags also have anti-skid features, thus driving the market. The recyclability & durability offered by BOPP bags is significantly driving the demand for BOPP bags.
However, the high cost of raw material, which is more than 60% of the operating cost, is discouraging manufacturers from opting for BOPP bags, and this is hampering the growth of the global BOPP bags market.
