Market Overview: Global Shrink Wrap Packaging

The significant growth of the pharma, chemicals and medical devices industries has fueled the demand for shrink wrap packaging over the past decade. The rise in disposable incomes and changing lifestyle preferences of consumers have also resulted in a rise in the packaging of products, providing a huge opportunity for the key players operating in the packaging industry. However, rapid industrialization and growing competition from tech-enabled players are projected to hamper the growth of the global shrink wrap packaging segment.

Given the ongoing developments and expansion opportunities available for businesses, experts at Infiniti Research find EMEA and APAC to be the most lucrative markets for shrink wrap packaging companies. The growing demand for shrink wrap packaging from pharma and chemical sectors together constitute over 60% of the global demand; this, in turn, is expected to drive market growth and profitability for those who make the right move now.
