Plastic films and sheets are integral parts of society today. With rising global population and disposable income, plastic films and sheets are finding increasing applications in packaging as well as in non-Packaging sector globally. In packaging, plastic films and sheets are used in food, pharmaceuticals, personal care, industrial and other applications. Food packaging is the key driver for plastic films and sheets in packaging sector. In modern days, plastic films are extensively used in flexible packaging. In non-packaging, plastic films and sheets find application in agriculture, construction, medical and health care, consumer goods, and others.
