The expansion of logistics sector has driven the adoption of palletization as an ideal process to ensure in-transit product security and stability. With palletization becoming the new norm in industrial packaging, manufacturers continue to focus on showcasing a vast portfolio featuring pallet wraps of varying blends and formulations best-suited to end user requirements.

According to the research study, sales of pallet wraps will continue to gain tailwinds from the evolving consumer demand for sturdy and durable packaging forms. The global packaging industry has witnessed a wave of new consumer demands come to the fore, this dynamicity of consumer choices has resulted in constant improvements in the existing packaging models and innovations in the new ones.

The report opines that end user sentiments will continue to incline towards pallet wraps of 15-30 mm thickness, followed by < 15 mm. Price stands firm as the key factor dictating consumer decisions, which is a key reason why end users would continue to prefer low thickness variants available in reasonable prices. With end use industries embracing the automation trend, sales of machine rolls will continue to outdo the sales of hand wrap rolls during the forecast period.

Polyethylene will continue to be a force to reckon with in the material space, with global sales estimated to reach approximately US$ 2.6 Bn in 2019. The primary advantages upholding polyethylene’s position as the ‘material of choice’ are its usability quotient, versatility, easy processability, cost-efficiency, and recyclability. As per the report estimates, polyamide will continue to closely trail polyethylene through 2029, on account of its beneficial properties such as strength and stiffness, puncture resistance, and fracture strain.

According to the research study, food and beverages will continue to be at the forefront of demand for pallet wraps in 2019 and beyond. Effective packaging remains a critical variable in ensuring safe transportation of food and beverage products during bulk transport, and pallet wrap grades continue to befit these requirements.
