Global PE Films Market to Grow at a CAGR of 3.75% between 2021 and 2026.

According to a new report by EMR titled, 'Global PE Films Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026', the global PE films market reached a volume of almost 55.8 million metric tons in 2020. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.75% in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to attain approximately 69.6 million metric tons by 2026.

The global PE films market is supported by the rapid growth of the Asia Pacific market, which is driven by an increase in the end-user demand, particularly from the food and beverage sector. Globally, the market is being aided by the growing consumption of PE films by the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) in the packaged food industry. The market is witnessing rapid innovations, for example, down gauged films, which is a cost-effective and nature-friendly product.

Amcor plc (NYSE: AMCR) and RKW Group are the major players in the global PE films market. In February 2020, Amcor plc launched Genesis, which is a new in-store recyclable laminate solution. With the introduction of Genesis, the company is taking a leap ahead of the existing flexible packaging for several consumer goods. The new laminate offering has in-store recyclability and maintains high performance. Genesis is made of an innovative PE formulation and achieves new levels of clarity, stiffness, and gloss near to those of oPP/PE and its laminations. This product is, in a real sense, an in-store recyclable alternative for brand owners and retailers. Such product launches are expected to influence the market positively, especially as consumers are increasingly becoming more eco-conscious.
