Vision Research Reports predicts the global PVDC shrink bags market is expected to grow at a 3.1% CAGR over the course of the forecast period 2021 to 2028.
PVDC shrink bags market will be driven by the rising demand for flexible packaging solutions. The market is expected to record slow yet upward trend with growth driven by diverse applications of shrink bags. Their extensive use in packaging of food items including fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, and other items is one of the chief drivers of the global market.
PVDC shrink bags sales surged in response to the increasing demand for flexible and uniform packaging solution. These bags are resistant to puncture and have excellent luster. They are lightweight and considered extremely convenient to offer packaging solutions in the food sector.
These bags are predominantly used for packing fresh and processed meat and seafood items. While shrink bags find exceptional usability in shipping and logistics industry, the food sector is expected to account for maximum share in the market for PVDC shrink bags.
Rising Demand for Improved Shelf-life Spurring Growth Prospects
PVDC shrink bags are manufactured to offer strong seal performance. It therefore is expected from them to address myriad p0ackaging needs while exhibiting excellent sealing functionality. These bags are also found useful in ensuring longer shelf life of any food products.
The demand for shrink bags is likely to surge in the coming years. A small increase in shelf life, especially in meat, poultry, and sea food products is valued by consumers. It is also a valued proposition for industry participants creating opportunities for them to strengthen their footprint in the market.
PVDC shrink bags’ ability to improve shelf life of food products, coupled with their excellent properties as barrier to moisture and oxygen, is the primary reason behind their widespread application in the food sector.
With the increasing penetration of giant retail chains in developed and high potential markets alike, the demand for packaged foods is likely to accelerate. Against this backdrop, shrink bag manufacturers see incredible scope for expansion in the near future.
Manufacturers Focusing on Design Innovation to Offer Better Customization
The demand for PVDC shrink bags is rising, however, not at a pace expected. It has therefore led market players to focus on innovative product designs. There is greater focus on incorporating innovative features such as high puncture resistance, impressive barrier properties, and greater luster to continue gaining traction through the course of the forecast period.
A case in point in Schur Flexibles Holding GesmbH’s PVDC shrink bags that bring to the table impressive puncture resistance, excellent, transparency, high barrier properties, and flexo printing options.

These innovations are intended to help food industry cater to the demand for contamination-free food to end users. Innovations are seen as key strategic moves by market players and are expected to help the global market gain impetus in the coming years.
Rising Availability of Eco-friendly Alternatives Poses Threat
Despite its application in the food sector, the market sees the availability of alternative packaging solutions and materials as potential threats. Companies in the food sector in developed as well as high potential markets are eager to switch to technological advancements.
They are putting constant effort towards design innovations to manufacture eco-friendly, recyclable, and flexible packaging solutions. Flexible packaging solutions made from PVDC materials might have long-term impact on the environment.
The rising awareness regarding the same is making manufacturers uneasy. Consequently, prominent companies within the market are shifting to alternative materials such as ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) and others to offer superior barrier qualities and better recyclability.
For instance, WINPAK LTD’s DuraShrink are eco-friendly barrier shrink bags. The availability of similar alternatives is increasing steadily, posing threat to the PVDC shrink bag producers.
COVID-19 Outbreak Leading to Slowdown
The market for PVDC shrink bags is primarily dominated by the food sector. As a result, the market players are expected the demand for straight bottom sealed, side sealed, and round bottom sealed shrink bags to accelerate in response to the increasing store meat, poultry, and seafood items sales.
However, post COVID-19 outbreak, experts have forecast the consumption of aforementioned food items to shrink considerably, which might adversely impact the market.
The pandemic unfolded unprecedented times for the food industry. As restaurants and food chains remained shuttered following complete or partial lockdown orders, sales within the industry took a nose dive. Shrink bag manufacturers too felt the heat, as one of their most lucrative pockets struggled to stay afloat amid the pandemic.
Discontinuation of production also caused supply chain disruption of PVDC shrink packs. However, with better planning and boost by regulatory authorities, the market is forecast to regain momentum at the beginning of 2021.
Demand for Contamination-free Packaging Propelling Growth
Recent events have rendered consumers more skeptical about products they buy. According to TMR, consumers prefer using shrink bags primarily because of their multi-layer structure that offers additional shield to food packaging.
Consumers are looking for better oxygen barrier and resistance against tearing. Barrier shrink bags with 50-70 Micron thickness offers both attributes, which has made them a highly sought-after packaging solution in the food sector.
Those made from polyethylene are expected to enjoy increasing demand especially due to their increasing use for packaging seafood, meat, poultry, and other food products.
