Raw Material Insights
Based on raw material, the global synthetic paper market has been segmented into BOPP, HDPE and others. Under the raw materials segment, the BOPP market led the global synthetic paper market. Moreover, the HDPE segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the projected period for the synthetic paper market. The biaxial oriented polypropylene (BOPP) synthetic paper is a biaxially oriented polypropylene film which means that the paper is stretched in both across the machine direction and in the machine direction. The BOPP synthetic paper is known to be ideal for its printing surface and can be used to make stickers and labels which has helped to favor the synthetic paper market across the globe.
The global synthetic paper market by the applications has been segmented into the label and non-label applications. The non-label segment accounted for the largest share in the global synthetic paper market. The non-label application of synthetic paper adapts to most of the printing processes such as flexography, lithography, screen and rotary letterpress. As the synthetic paper is tear-resistant and also exhibits resistance against water and grease, the printing application is widely used in the synthetic paper. Synthetic bags are gaining growing importance as they are water-resistant and tear-resistant and are commonly used in the geographical regions that are estimated to have high rainfalls and can also adhere to harsh conditions. Synthetic paper is widely used in displays such as graphs, business cards, calendars and poster, banners and many others.
