    Cling films are thin films that adhere to surfaces and to themselves while remaining flexible and tear-resistant. Cling films are so thin that they cling to whatever they are wrapped around. A cling film is made of a transparent polymer that clings to objects to form a sealant for that object.

    Growth in the food and beverage industry, increasing demand for packaging, and the growing medical industry are expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, cling films have higher transparency, tensile strength, heat resistance, and adhesive properties, and are more flexible than traditional shrink films. All of these factors are expected to further fuel the growth of the market in the coming years.

    The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted various industries in 2020. However, the market for cling films was less affected by the pandemic's wrath as consumers were more inclined towards online channels, which drives the cling films market as the demand for packaging expanded across various end-user industries.

    By Material Type

    The market is bifurcated into polyethylene, biaxially oriented polypropylene, PVC, PVDC, and others. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) dominated the cling films market in 2021 and is expected to maintain its unrivaled lead throughout the forecast period. PVC is one of the most widely used materials for food storage. Furthermore, PVC cling films are resistant to high and low temperatures, oxygen, and moisture, and are highly durable, allowing the product to remain fresh for longer periods of time. PVC films are less expensive than other aluminum wraps or foils. They keep packaged foods like meat, fish, fruits, and vegetables from spoiling.

    By Form Type

    The market is segmented as cast cling film and blow cling film. Cast cling film is likely to govern the market during the forecast period. Cast cling film is comparatively less expensive and can save more than 15% to 20% on per-unit packing costs. Furthermore, creating cast film is the most efficient method of producing high-quality stretch wrap films. Also, cast cling film offers excellent clarity and tear resistance.

    By End-User Type

    The market is segmented as the food industry, healthcare, consumer goods, industrial, and others. Among these end-users, the food industry dominates the market. The market for cling films is driven by significant factors such as the growing food industry and rising demand for all types of food packaging. Also, cling film offers excellent glossiness and fog-resistant properties. In addition, because cling film is thin, stretchable, and adheres to any smooth surface without the use of adhesives, it is a popular film material for food wrap.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, North America accounted for the lion's share of the cling films market in 2021, whereas Asia-Pacific is anticipated to experience the highest demand during the forecast period. The region’s market is expanding as a result of the rising demand for products in the consumer goods, healthcare, and packaging industries in developing economies such as China, India, and Japan. In addition, China is home to one of the world's largest food industries. Additionally, it is expected that the market will continue to grow on account of increasing population and rising per capita income.
