Cling Film Market Growth Sustained by Bioplastics, Says FMI

The market for cling films or plastic wraps has been growing on back of increasing demand for flexible and transparent packaging formats across various sectors. Driven by their durability and cost-efficiency, cling films are helpful in increasing shelf life of products. In addition, cling films exhibit excellent tear resilience, making them suitable a household product.

On the contrary, raw materials of cling films, including polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polyethylene (PE), are non-recyclable or require significant duration for getting decomposed. Governments globally are imposing regulations regarding reduced consumption of plastics. As a result, manufacturers are turning to sustainable alternatives, such as bioplastics. Derived from natural sources, bioplastics exhibit properties akin to conventional plastics.
