AMI: Positive Outlook for BOPP Film
AMI Consulting, Bristol, U.K., has recently completed an update of its global study of the BOPP film industry which points to an encouraging picture of continuing strong demand growth for these films, as it recovers from the effects of the economic downturn. Although demand growth slowed down noticeably in 2008 – it did still grow at 2% to reach a market demand of 5.1 million t and picked up again strongly by 6% in 2009 adding a further 300,000t of demand. AMI is also positive about the demand outlook and sees no reason why global BOPP film demand should not continue growing at respectable rates of 6–7%/year for the next three to four years, driven mainly by growth in Asia and to a lesser extent in Eastern Europe, Russia and Brazil.
