The development of plastic packaging
Plastic packaging materials mainly include plastic flexible packaging, woven bags, hollow containers, turnover boxes, etc., which are one of the largest areas in the application of plastic products. Plastic packaging accounts for about 1/3 of the total output of packaging materials, ranking first among all packaging materials. Various mineral products, chemical products, synthetic resins, raw salt, grain, sugar, cotton and wool have been widely used in plastic woven bags and heavy packaging bags; beverages, detergents, cosmetics, chemical products, etc. have developed rapidly in China , The indispensable plastic packaging materials such as composite films, packaging films, containers, and turnover boxes are in great demand. Food and medicine are important materials of the national economy and people’s livelihood, and the corresponding packaging demand is very strong. The growth rate of China’s pharmaceutical packaging ranks first among the world’s eight largest drug producing countries.
In the 21st century, China’s accession to the WTO and global economic development have further promoted the development of China’s domestic demand and foreign trade, and will drive BOPP (biaxially oriented polypropylene film) and plastic flexible packaging products into a new round of high growth period of market demand. According to industry estimates, the average annual growth rate of China’s BOPP film market is more than 20%. The development of the flexible packaging industry provides a good market opportunity for the development of the BOPP industry.
