Polyester straps have emerged as a viable option to steel strapping

With the advent of polyester straps, the age old problem of corrosion has been tackled, as steel has the property of corroding. Before polyester straps were introduced in the global market, steel strapping was used to wrap the products. However, as steel tends to corrode, this resulted in the deteriorating quality of goods that were wrapped with it. This had a negative impact on the logistics sector and other allied industries.

Due to this, a demand for alternative strapping solutions took shape, which also had to be light and soft. This lead to the increase in the use of polyester straps as a viable alternative to steel strapping. Manufacturers have been agile to capitalize on the benefits provided by polyester strapping, and therefore presently there is an increased demand for polyester straps in the market. 

Polyester straps serve as a durable low cost solution in the automobile industry

The demand for polyester straps is increasing in the North America region, specifically in the automobile industry. Automobile industry needs materials that are durable and possess enough strength and are light weight. All such properties are present in the polyester straps, and this is driving the demand of polyester straps in the North America region. Also, another important factor is the cost, and as polyester straps are cheaper, their demand is on a rise in the region.

On the similar lines, polyester straps are cost effective as compared to other strapping solutions, especially steel strapping. The market for polyester straps is driven by the consumers due to the fact that it possesses the properties of high tensile strength, low cost, light weight, etc. Due to such favourable properties of polyester straps, they are preferred by manufacturers over other strapping solutions.

Alternatives such as polypropylene strapping is hampering the growth of polyester straps market

Strapping solutions made from polypropylene is a cost-effective solution that is suitable for moderate duty bundling, unitizing and palletizing. Some of the areas where polypropylene strapping is preferred include bundling and packing newspapers, magazines, food products such as meat, appliances, corrugated boxes, cut paper and cartons. Polypropylene strapping is preferred in such areas of application as it has a greater elongation at break. Hence, this solution is preferred in low and medium heavy duty work. Due to this, the market for polyester straps is affected negatively as manufacturers are preferring polypropylene over polyester straps in such areas of application.

Increasing use of polyester straps in the transportation sector in North America

In North America region, the growth of the transportation sector and logistics is increasing, due to which more and more number of goods are transported from one place to another. Thus, the use of polyester strapping as a strapping solutions for the transportation of such goods is also increasing consequently.

In the logistics industry, polyester straps are used by various manufacturers for the shipment of various products. The transportation sector is highly competitive in the North America region. Thus, the growth of this vital sector in a highly developed region of the world bodes good for the use of polyester straps market in this region.
