Woven Polyester Strapping Market: An Insight On the Important Factors and Trends

Posted by Kishor on June 14th, 2019

Strapping is used for unitizing and holding items in place for transport and storage. Plastic strapping is done using materials such as polyester, polypropylene, or woven polyester (polyester and polypropylene). Polyester is known to be one of the most durable plastic strapping material and is often used as an alternative for steel strapping.  Woven polyester strapping maintains its structural stability under adverse weather conditions and retains tension. Owing to its ability to absorb load impact without breaking makes woven polyester strapping suitable for several heavy duty applications.

Woven Polyester Strapping Market: Dynamics

The woven nature provides additional strength to the strapping; this has bolstered the demand for woven polyester strapping in securing heavy loads, including metal as well as plastics. Unlike steel strappings, woven polyester strapping do not rust, are easier to handle and less expensive. These attributes are expected to fuel the demand for woven polyester strapping in the global strapping market. Additionally, the global logistics industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% in the next decade, which will translate into an expansion of the woven polyester strapping market.

However, plastic strapping is avoided in many applications and stretch wraps are used for unitizing products. When compared to stretch wraps, woven polyester strapping fail to provide full enclosure protection to the package. This is why woven polyester strapping is not preferred in many consumer packaged goods. Moreover, woven polyester strapping cannot match the strength of steel strapping which is used for long-distance transportation. This might restrain the area of application of these strapping solutions and adversely affect the sales of woven polyester strapping.
