The key growth drivers for the global stretch and shrink sleeves market are: increasing demand for polymer films, anti-counterfeiting facilities, availability of additional printing space, and 360 degree display. The global market for stretch and shrink sleeves has witnessed substantial growth in the recent years owing to rise in the urbanized population, increasing demand for packaged foods, renaissance of the labeling & packaging industry in developing economies, and increasing emphasis on the use of sustainable materials. Furthermore, the light weight of stretch and shrink sleeves, coupled with their low cost, is expected to foster their market growth in the coming years. In addition, the increasing applications of shrink and sleeves, globally, in various end-use industries such as paper & textile, food & dairy and electronics, for labeling, is expected to further drive the market growth.
However, volatile raw material prices are likely to have an adverse impact on the manufacturing of these labels. Concerns regarding the recycling and disposal of these films due to their non-biodegradable nature are expected to hamper the market growth. Moreover, the growing buyer attention towards alternate packaging materials, such as paper, which in turn is lighter and also biodegradable, may pose a significant threat to the growth of the market. The increasing trend of on-line shopping is expected to create new growth opportunities for the global stretch and shrink sleeves market in the coming years, owing to the rising preference for light weight packaging among consumers and logistic companies.
Geographically, the global stretch and shrink sleeves market is segmented into seven main regions, namely Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific excluding Japan, the Middle East & Africa, and Japan. The historical growth of the Latin America and Asia Pacific economies has been a feature of the 21st century. This economic growth has, to a degree, been another major driver for the high levels of growth witnessed in the global stretch and shrink sleeves market. Besides, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth in the coming years. Currently, Asia Pacific dominates the global stretch and shrink sleeves market on account of rapid industrialization in economies of India and China. Also, countries such as the U.S., Japan, Germany, Brazil, China, and India are investing large amounts in the packaging and labeling industry to achieve sustained and rapid economic growth. North America and Western Europe are expected to witness moderate growth in the coming years as the manufacturers in these regions are shifting their plants and facilities to emerging economies such as China, Mexico, Brazil, and India.
