LDPE & LLDPE Sealant Web Films Market: Introduction of Bio-based Sealant Web Films to Negatively Impact Revenue Growth: Global Industry Analysis 2013-2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028

Global LDPE & LLDPE Sealant Web Films Market Analysis: High heat-seal strength and low heat-seal temperature have driven the market

The key driving factor propelling the demand for LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films market globally are the physical properties of LDPE & LLDPE plastics highly suitable for a sealant web film to act as a sealant layer. The global LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.1% by the end of 2028.

The primary drive of the LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films market is the high heat-seal strength of the LDPE & LLDPE plastics and the low heat energy requirement for sealing of the LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films. This is due to low heat-seal temperature of LDPE & LLDPE material, which is around 66°C for LDPE and around 77°C for LLDPE. Strong moisture barrier provided by the LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films is another factor which has driven the demand globally for the production of monolayer transparent bags to weatherproof the primary product.

Various industries such as textile, electrical & electronics, homecare products, personal care products and other consumer products industries have created large demand for the monolayer LDPE & LLDPE bags. Various processed food products such as ready-to-eat foods, sauces & gravies, snacks and others have created high demand for pouches which require LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films for strong sealing. The economical and abundant availability is another factor which has driven the global LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films market.

In 2004, the global production of LLDPE overtook the global production of LDPE, owing to highly desirable physical properties and relatively low cost of LLDPE as compared to LDPE. Thus, the similar trend is projected to be followed in the LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films market, which is high and further increasing demand of LLDPE sealant web films as compared to that of LDPE sealant web films. See-through packaging or transparent packaging is highly preferred by the consumer product brand owners due to the positive impact of the product on the consumers and cost savings on the printing and labelling of the packaging.

LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films are capable of providing see-through packaging. Food industry is continuously making efforts in evolving packaging format to attract consumers. Along with this, globalization and urbanization in emerging countries of Latin America and Asia Pacific have created strong incremental opportunity for food industry, as well as for LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films demand. Down-gauging of the LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films is another trend being followed in the industry.


Introduction of bio-based sealant web films have heavily impacted the LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films market owing to increasing intolerance towards the usage of conventional plastics. Plastic Suppliers Inc., a Europe based film manufacturing company have launched a PLA based sealant web films which possess physical properties that can replace the LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films. The depletion in the availability of fossil fuels have resulted into increasing price of the oil-based plastics, including LDPE & LLDPE resins. These factors have attributed to restrain the global market for LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films.

To overcome the challenge of protecting the environment from the harmful impact of multilayer films which cannot be recycled, the film manufacturing companies are making efforts to develop technology for sorting of different materials from multi-layer films. This development has created an opportunity for the LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films market by eliminating the barrier of restrictions imposed on the usage of multilayer films due to its harmful effects on nature. Furthermore, the growing end-user industries such as food, beverage, textile, pharmaceuticals and other industries are primarily responsible for driving the demand of LDPE & LLDPE sealant web films market.

Detailed profiles of companies are also included in the report to evaluate their strategies, key product offerings and recent developments. The key players of the global LDPE & LLDPE Sealant Web Films market are Berry Global, Bemis Company Inc., Jindal Poly Films, Mitsui Chemicals America, Inc., Dow-Dupont Inc., Winpak Ltd., Polifilm GmbH, Avery Dennison and DIC Corporation.
