Strong Demand from Food Packaging Industry to Sustain Growth of LDPE and LLDPE Sealant Web Films Market

Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) sealant web films have found widespread application in a number of end use packaging industries including pharmaceutical, beverage, cosmetics, food, personal care, home care, and textile products. The LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films market are benefiting from the key physical properties of these materials which include the low amounts of heat needed in the sealing process, low weight of packaging, high levels of puncture strength and the high barrier characteristics for moisture.

The economically viable prices of polyethylene resins are one of the major influencers that is projected to have a significant impact on the growth of the global LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films market. Other key factors that will affect the activities of the players in the market can include:

  1. With the aim of circumventing the challenges posed by environment conservation laws and activists against multilayer non-recyclable films, manufacturers are focusing their efforts towards the development of different packaging materials. This factor is expected to sustain the growth opportunities for the market players, owing to the elimination of barriers on multilayer packing.
  2. On a related note, the plastic based materials that are used to produce LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films are considered to be harmful to the environment. Consequently, the recent development of bio based sealant web films are projected to have a substantial restraining effect on the LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films market. This restraint is further strengthened by the depleted levels of fossil fuels, which has resulted in higher prices in the production of LDPE and LLDPE resins.
  3. LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films are being widely used in the food packaging industry. This can be attributed to the clear and transparent visual characteristics of the material, which is considered to be ideal in creating visually attractive packaging, while also being a low cost alternative to other packaging counterparts. This is supported by the trend of urbanization and globalization, especially for LLDPE owing to better physical properties and lower costs in comparison to LDPE.

Packaging films LDPE (Low-density Polyethylene) & LLDPE (Linear Low-density Polyethylene) sealant web films, are widely adopted in large number of industries for packaging including food, beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care & cosmetics, textile and homecare products. Physical properties such as high moisture barrier and low heat energy consumed in the sealing of the film, makes LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films a preferred choice. Moreover, economically priced polyethylene resins have resulted into high preference of LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films compared to other materials such as polypropylene. High puncture strength coupled with low weight of packaging offered by LDPE & LLDPE films, will drive the market further.

Future Market Insights, in its recently released intelligence outlook, forecasts moderate growth for the global LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films market over the next 10 years.

During 2018-2028, the global revenue of global LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films market is anticipated to expand at a moderate CAGR of 4.1% and reach a value worth US$ 67.5 Bn by the end of 2028. With over 62% value share in the global LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films market revenue, LLDPE is presumed to remain a larger shareholder throughout the forecast period. Higher heat-seal strength, economically priced, and reduced density and weight are some factors responsible for increased demand for LLDPE.

Evolving Food Packaging Trends to Drive LDPE and LLDPE Sealant Web Films Adoption

Accounting for nearly 37% of the total market share, the food industry is aggressively adopting LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films, owing to shifting preference consumer preference apropos of protection and preservation of food. Food packaging pouches made of multilayered LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films provides high heat-seal strength, low melting temperature and good moisture barrier properties. Packagers, in the food industry, are using LDPE and LLDPE film layers as the outermost layer on the pouch packaging, owing to high printability and high quality aesthetics offered by LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films. Demand for clear packaging is also driving the market for transparent or see-through LDPE or LLDPE sealant web films, predominantly in developed countries of North America, Western Europe and Japan.

Bio-Based Sealant Web Films Becoming an Important Slice of the Revenue Pie

FMI projects that regulations curbing the use of oil-based plastics to reduce carbon footprint and gradual shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly packaging in the form of bio-based sealant web films will restrict the adoption of LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films, in the coming years, impacting the overall growth scenario of the global LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films market. Moreover, on account of depleting fossil fuel resources, the prices of petroleum are augmenting, leading to an increase in prices of conventional plastics, including LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films. Contrarily, the prices for bio-based plastics are expected to witness slight decline owing to increasing demand, production capacity, and legislative support. Such volatility is expected to hamper the global demand of LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films market. Increase in demand for bio-based sealant web films packaging in the F&B industry is attributable to companies switching to biodegradable packaging options especially for organic and premium food products.

The transparent monolayer LDPE & LLDPE bags, used for weather protection, are likely to dominate LDPE and LLDPE sealant web films market, with significant consumption for B2B purposes. The market for flat pouch market will be majorly driven by the changing packaging landscape in the food industry.

The key players of the global LDPE & LLDPE Sealant Web Films market are Berry Global, Bemis Company Inc., Jindal Poly Films, Mitsui Chemicals America, Inc., Dow-Dupont Inc., Winpak Ltd., Polifilm GmbH, Avery Dennison and DIC Corporation.
