According to the report, the demand for stretch wrap will remain relatively larger in light of its better recyclability and dust, moisture and tamper resistance. Sales of the LDEP resin-based stretch wrap are expected to close in on 3 million tons in 2019, which can be attributed to their amenability to heat shrinking, and high clarity. Moreover, better resistance to impact, moisture, and chemicals, along with recyclability has resulted in the wide application of LDPE resin in production of stretch wrap. Meanwhile, in recent years, the use of LLDPE resin has also increased in plastic protective packaging as it is a cost-effective alternative, and offers high strength in various conditions.

Growing Environmental Concerns and Increasing Use of Flexible Packaging
Environmental concerns has led to some significant changes in the development of protective packaging. Demand for reduced waste and more-efficient packaging is high among large retailers, with an aim to reduce secondary and transit packaging waste at retail sites. Growing concerns regarding harmful effects of plastic on environment and health has led to the development and adoption of biodegradable plastics that meet all the technical requirements of the existing plastic protective packaging.
In response to growing demand for eco-friendly packaging, majority of the retailers are focusing on streamlining their packaging division with sustainable and eco-friendly solutions. This has resulted in the shift from plastic packaging to paper bags and paperboards made using recycled materials. With an aim to provide sustainable and affordable packaging across various industries, the use of bioplastics have increased in recent years. Bioplastics such as polythene made from sugar cane have emerged as highly preferred substitute for oil-based equivalents for the protective packaging where robustness and high-durability is vital.
