Global Flow wraps market: Introduction

Flow wraps are attractive and durable coverings on products, a process which is known as flow wrapping. The process allows products to be wrapped in clear or printed Polypropylene (PP) film. One of the major reasons for preference for flow wraps is their airtight nature, which enables product protection, and extends the shelf-life of the product. Manufacturers across the world focus on packaging solutions having consumer convenience and experience at the epicentre. Therefore, flow wraps are expected to face sizeable demand as a reliable packaging solution. In addition, flow wraps are used in a wide range of applications that range from cereal bars and chocolates up to a variety of snack foods. The end use industries for the global flow wraps market include the pharmaceutical industry, food & beverage industry, and the chemicals & fertilizers industry, on printed, unprinted, or opaque materials.  All these factors, combined with features such as easy-to-peel wrapping, heat resistance, and easy seal ability, enable flow wraps to witness rising penetration in the market. High barrier properties enable absolute protection of the food product from moisture and air, and therefore increase chances for increased use of flow wraps in the market. There, the global flow wraps market is expected to expand at a healthy CAGR over the forecast period.

The global flow wraps market is expected to grow on the backdrop of the food & beverage industry growth, especially the confectionary food products. The global food & beverage packaging market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5%, globally, during the forecast period. One of the key drivers expected to have maximum contribution to growth of the global flow wraps market is the high level of competition among manufacturers.
