Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) Films Market Trends




  • Increasing demand for flexible and convenient packaging is driving the market growth




The demand for adaptable and useful packaging has risen recently in wealthy countries. Additionally, due to the expanding e-commerce trend in developed countries, the market for biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films has experienced broad expansion. Biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films are used widely in the food business due to its advantageous qualities, which include sealing ability, durability, moisture barrier, and oxygen barrier capacity. This application is fueling the industry's overall expansion. Additionally, due to their increasing rate of recycleability, Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) Films are being pushed into the major applications in the manufacturing industries.


The BOPP is moisture resistant and provides great clarity, graphic reproduction, and shelf appeal. It offers enormous flexibility for adding printing, laminations, logos, labels, and other branding elements. Due to these characteristics, it is the ideal choice for packaging in the food, beverage, and healthcare industries. Additionally, BOPP has been frequently used in the food business for the packaging of fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats. Increased disposable income in emerging economies and technological developments in online meal delivery will be the main drivers of the demand for packaged meals. This will fuel market expansion and further raise demand for BOPP.


Consumption of packaged goods has increased as a result of the growth of food and beverage e-commerce, the strengthening of the economy, and rising disposable income. Packaged goods require packaging to protect them from contamination and damage. The manufacturing capacity and expansion of the vendor over the projected year are likely to increase as a result of this tendency. Flexible packaging standards are being driven by environmental regulations because adopting flexible packaging as opposed to rigid packaging has considerable environmental benefits. In a case study, the Flexible Packaging Association examined the advantages of using a flexible pouch for the environment. The study found that switching from rigid to flexible packaging resulted in industrial operations using 87% less coal, 64% less crude oil, and 79% less CO2 emissions. Thus, driving the Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) Films market revenue.
