Polyethylene film markets were essentially national or regional in nature until shortly after the turn of the century, around 2005. There were, of course, exceptions such as the import into Europe and elsewhere of bags from Asia, and the supply of pallet stretch films from one region to another.
Dynamics of polyethylene application developments around the world has produced a new market study on global production and trade flows for polyethylene films in order to assist companies in making key investment and marketing decisions.
LLDPE, LDPE, and HDPE are polyethylene sheet liners that are used to manufacture plastic films for packaging and non-packaging purposes. However, LDPE is commonly used in plastic sheeting. LLDPE is widely accepted due to its advantages over other PE materials. LLDPE offers improved mechanical strength, conformability, and excellent optical strength. It is also more pliable and soft as compared to LDPE.
Polyethylene Film Packaging protects the product from an infusion of water, light, moisture, oil, aroma, and flavor. Polyethylene Film Packaging is gaining popularity in the form of flexible plastic films in various end-user industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and automotive.
