Globally, the packaging industry across various regions is undergoing new transitions and inclining towards flexible packaging features for the optimum utilization of raw materials. The need for packaging of valuable products with durable and excellent thermal properties is increasing. Oriented polypropylene pouches are made from polypropylene film which can withstand rough handling, making it more viable for use. The low density (~0.91) of polypropylene helps to make the oriented polypropylene pouch market more cost effective. The oriented polypropylene pouches are used in packaging of confectioneries, stationeries, garments, and groceries among others. The packaging industry and manufacturing companies are now preferring oriented polypropylene pouches which are heat resistant, attractive, more transparent, and have the longer shelf life. These properties of oriented polypropylene pouches pave the way for the increment in brand recognition, more consumer appeal, and product services.
The oriented polypropylene pouches provide transparency, thereby enhancing its consumer appeal, which in turn increases product sales. According to consumer demand, a variety of oriented polypropylene pouches of different size, shapes, and designs are introduced in the market. Oriented polypropylene pouches are preferred these days as they are compatible with most modern packaging methods. Oriented polypropylene pouches can be oriented mono-axially or bi-axially depending upon the requirements of the product. The oriented polypropylene pouch market is expected to witness growth in upcoming years along-with different packaging features.
