Plastic Film

Growth in the US plastic film market will total 1.5 percent annually through 2018 in volume terms. Gains will be driven by solid growth in packaging markets, where film continues to gain share over alternative materials. However, demand will be limited by ongoing downgauging trends, as well as the proliferation of bans on single-use plastic bags.

This report segments the Plastic Film industry by Resin and Market. Data is provided in million pounds, with some data also in million US dollars.

Plastic Film Products include:

Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE)

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

Polypropylene

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)

Others (polystyrene, nylon, PDVC, EVOH, bioplastic)

LLDPE will remain the largest of these through 2018. Fastest growth will be for other types such as nylon, EVOH, and bioplastics, driven by increasing demand for high barrier films in packaging.

Major Plastic Film Markets include:

Food Packaging

Nonfood Packaging

Secondary Packaging

Non-packaging

Food packaging was the leading outlet in 2013. Food packaging will also see the most rapid gains through 2018, fueled by the rising prevalence of film-based pouches in snack food, meat, produce, and pet food packaging.

US plastic film suppliers tend to be forward-integrated into finished products such as converted food packaging or plastic bags. Major producers include AEP Industries, Bemis, Berry Plastics, Clorox (Glad Products), DuPont, Inteplast, Novolex (Hilex Poly), Printpack, Sealed Air, and Sigma Plastics.
