NORTHAMPTON, England, July 7, 2011 -


Fully updated following 2010’s fluctuations and uncertainties of
supply and pricing, PCI Films Consulting, the world’s leading
specialist in oriented plastic film market intelligence have
published their latest report. ‘World BOPET Film Market Trends
Statistical Update 2011′ was researched through April and May 2011,
bringing together global data gathered from manufacturers, users
and machinery suppliers to provide an authoritative view of the
current situation, the prospects for capacity growth and pricing,
and forecasts thin and thick BOPET film markets until 2015.

As the new report states:  The global BOPET film
shortage has eased to the point that supplies are now plentiful,
and new capacity coming on stream before 2015 will ensure that the
uncertainties of 2010 will not return in the short to medium term.
Prices have eased considerably on the availability of extra volume
India and softening of demand, probably due to
the running down of stocks built up at the end of 2010. The Indian
s decision to ban BOPET laminate packaging
will further improve supply, and substantial new investment is
planned by the emerging global players based in
and China. While the thick film (>50µ) market
will continue to grow strongly, driven by developments in
photovoltaic and flat screen applications, flexible packaging
continues to be the main driver for the BOPET film industry,
accounting for 54% of the total, and with prospects for continuing
growth of around 8.5% per annum, though there will continue to be
substantial regional variations in growth rate.

The report breaks down data by Region and by major nations
within each Region. It presents historic and current market data
including typical selling prices; it pinpoints the activities of
the world’s BOPET producers and reveals their plans for future
production against clear predictions of world and regional demand
growth, categorised by end-use.

The new publication builds on the 2010 ‘World BOPET Film Market
Trends’ report, and is essential reading for suppliers of polyester
raw materials; extrusion equipment manufacturers; manufacturers of
BOPET films and their competitors, for example Aluminium foil and
paper producers; flexible packaging converters, major end users and
brand owners. It also provides useful insights for financial
institutions looking for investment opportunities in the oriented
plastics industry.

The report has a list price of €3,500 and is available from PCI
Films Consulting Limited in Northamptonshire, UK. More information
