The global synthetic paper market size reached US$ 932.5 Million in 2022. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to reach US$ 1,481.4 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.8% during 2023-2028. The rising product demand in the food and beverage (F&B) industry, increasing consumer awareness regarding product benefits, and introduction of sustainable manufacturing process represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Synthetic paper refers to a white and opaque appearance product used for printing, packaging, and labeling. It is derived from various petroleum-based raw materials, such as biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyamide, polystyrene (PS), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Synthetic paper is manufactured using biaxial stretching film, surface coating, and surface treatment methods. It is widely used in printing identification cards, restaurant menus, passports, charts, books, maps, mark sheets, banners, and various tags. Synthetic paper is a highly durable material that offers dimensional stability, ease of printing, and excellent tensile and tear strength. It is also similar in appearance and touch to regular paper and provides resistance to water, oil, grease, and chemicals. As a result, synthetic paper finds extensive applications across the food and beverage (F&B), cosmetics, healthcare, chemical, and packaging industries.
Synthetic Paper Market Trends:
The rising product demand in the F&B industry is one of the primary factors driving the market growth. Synthetic paper is widely used in the packaging, labeling, and wrapping of various food products, such as sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, snacks, frozen products, and ready-to-eat (RTE) meals, as it is highly durable and resistant to water, oil, and tear. Furthermore, increasing consumer awareness regarding various product benefits, as it is an inorganic material that is easy to recycle, minimizes waste, and reduces the emission of toxic gases, is providing an impetus to the market growth. Apart from this, rising product adoption in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries for producing medical labels, patient’s wristbands, prescriptions, over-the-counter labels, and tags for nurseries, medical equipment, blood bags, and vials, due to its ability to provide protection against tampering and withstanding cryofreezing and sterilization processes, is propelling the market growth. Additionally, the introduction of eco-friendly synthetic paper that is manufactured using sustainable processes and recycled raw materials, such as HDPE, which, in turn, reduces wastage, and preserve water resources, is positively influencing the market growth. Other factors, including rising product utilization in advertising applications, implementation of stringent regulations by several governments to promote the use of recycled and reusable papers, and increasing environmental concerns regarding the use of pulp paper, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
