Global shrink packaging market has been segmented based on material, product, application, and region. On the basis of material, the market of shrink packaging is segmented as linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The material segment of the market is dominated by low density polyethylene due to its flexibility and superior transparency. Majority of shrink films are made up of  low-density polyethylene (LDPE). Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), on the other hand, is expected to be the fastest growing segment by material because of its high tensile strength and durability. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a dense material, commonly used in countries like India for manufacturing shrink films. This is because, it is comparatively inexpensive, durable, and has a good shrink ratio.


Based on product, shrink film hoods are expected to register the highest growth rate in the forecast period. The growth is expected to be driven by the increasing demand for hoods in industrial packaging and consumer goods packaging. On the basis of applications, the market is segmented into food packaging, beverages, paper & textile products, and others. Beverages are expected to dominate the application segment of the market owing to increased consumption of beverages on a global level.


Shrink packaging is basically used for a single or bundle of products to protect them from dust and dirt along with moisture damage or weathering. Shrink packaging tends to bind the components or products, especially small items, together. It is one of the best ways to protect the product during transportation and storage from surface damage. Heat is a very important part of overall shrink packaging process.The major components required for shrink packaging are heat machine and shrink wrap. Shrink wrap is a polymer plastic wrap which is made up of polyethylene, polyolefin and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Polyolefin is a highly consumed raw material in shrink wraps. These wraps or films are also available in a wide array of variants depending on the degree of clarity, strength, shrink ratio and thicknesses. Shrink packaging is done by wrapping and sealing the film tightly around the item or bundle of items by heat gun or a heat tunnel.
