Similar to many other industries, the personal care industry experiences regular product damage during the necessary distribution-related transportation process. Stretch & shrink films are used in personal care products including body care, skincare, and more because personal care goods frequently need extra protection to keep the products and primary packaging in great form for consumers. Stretch and shrink film demand is being driven by the expanding cosmetics sector. The sales of hand care products, for instance, climbed by 26.2% to €68.25 million (US$77.9 million) in 2020, from €54.09 million (US$60.6 million) in 2019, according to the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association (CTPA). Additionally, sales of body lotion and cream were €198.39 million ($222.1 million) in 2019 and €201.36 million ($229.99 million) in 2020, an increase of 1.5%, which led to a rise in demand for stretch & shrink films. Thus, it is projected that the market would rise due to the personal care industry's quick development. Thus, this factor is driving the market CAGR.

The films have a number of advantages, including a wide range of oxygen transmission rates, optimal shelf-life for a number of food packaging types (meat, cheese, poultry, and case-ready packaging), premium product presentation, high impact and puncture resistance, fewer leaks when packing rigid or sharp-edged products, retained strength at freezing temperatures, and preserved package integrity. Additionally, over 5.3 million Americans used almost 10 million boxes. Additionally, more than 3 million metric tonnes of plastic wrap that businesses were anticipated to produce in 2020 are used commercially in shipping and stores. According to the same survey, about 293.29 million Americans will use food and kitchen wraps/films in 2020. By the end of 2024, the survey predicts that there will be 303.28 million subscribers in the US.
