Sustainable & Flexible Packaging Solutions drive BOPA Films Market Growth

The BOPA films market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% between 2020 and 2030, concludes Future Market Insights in its recent report.

Biaxially Oriented Polyamide, or BOPA films, are extremely lightweight, environmentally friendly and offer a high degree of protection to goods while in transit. They can also withstand extreme environmental conditions, making them an ideal choice in packaging perishable commodities such as foodstuffs. They also help eliminate moisture, prolonging their lifespans.

A number of green spaces are anticipated for the BOPA films market across major end-use industrial verticals. Domains such as consumer goods, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals are also adopting them to offer sustainable packaging solutions. In the pharmaceutical sector, these are employed to make blood & parental nutrition bags.

These widespread applications will generate favorable growth conditions for the BOPA films market in the future.

“Heightening demand for flexible packaging solutions is generating opportunities for manufacturers to introduce new solutions by incorporating recycled and sustainable alternatives to acquire a competitive edge,” says the FMI analyst.
