Report Overview

The Americas strapping materials market size was estimated at USD 1.64 billion in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period. Rising demand for lightweight materials to reduce cost per unit volume levied by logistics carriers is expected to drive the market through 2025.

U.S. strapping materials market

The market is majorly driven by growing product demand from various application segments such as food and beverage and industrial packaging. Factors such as rising awareness and the importance of sustainable and environment-friendly packaging are also anticipated to boost market growth over the forecast period.

Synthetic fibers such as polyester and polypropylene are majorly used as a raw material on account of their technical properties such as high tensile strength and abrasion resistance. PET straps produced by melting recycled PET materials, granules, pellets, or flake offer high strength and stretchability to the straps.

Volatile prices of raw materials such as steel, polyester, and polypropylene may challenge market growth over the forecast period. The rising cost of energy and other utilities required for manufacturing these raw materials is also anticipated to impact the market.

Key manufacturers are emphasizing manufacturing cost-efficient, environment-friendly, and application-specific straps in order to increase growth opportunities and ensure compliance with regulatory frameworks. Furthermore, the use of plastic straps over non-plastic straps has witnessed increased demand in the last few years as they can be recycled.

Rising environment regulations related to carbon emission and disposal of waste have had a major impact on manufacturers. Leading manufacturers operating in the industry are involved in recycling and reusing plastics, with an increased focus on addressing environmental concerns as well as reducing raw material costs.

Product Insights

Plastic and steel strapping materials are widely used in applications such as food and beverages, industrial logistics and warehouse, corrugated cardboard and paper, building and construction, and metal. These materials have the advantage of being lightweight, which makes them suitable for use in various routes of transportation including road, rail, sea, and air.

Plastic strapping materials manufactured by recycling processes offer numerous environmental benefits. For instance, using a ton of recycled plastic in the manufacturing of these materials saves approximately 98 million British thermal unit (BTU) of energy, 16.3 barrels of oil equivalent, and around 30 cubic yards of landfill space. This key feature has been driving product demand.

The PET segment is expected to exhibit a CAGR 4.1% in terms of revenue over the forecast period on account of its high recyclability, making them eco-friendly. Augmented demand for PET strapping materials in the food and beverage industry can be attributed to rising consumer spending on packaged food.

Polypropylene is projected to emerge as the fastest-growing segment from 2018 to 2025, registering a CAGR of 4.6% during that period. Polypropylene straps are widely used in the F&B sector owing to their shock-absorption properties. A shift in the trend toward the use of biocompatible plastics is projected to drive the Americas strapping materials market over the coming years.

Application Insights

The industry has two primary applications - food and beverage and industrial logistics and warehouses, which in 2017 together accounted for 59.4% of the revenue in North America. Rising demand for packaged foods as well as beverages has a major impact on the increased use of strapping materials and the trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.

Strapping is a highly economical alternative, which can be used efficiently by different industries irrespective of their scale of packaging. Industries such as corrugated cardboard and paper, which deal with a high volume of goods, require minimum downtime and maximum efficiency. This makes them major end-users of the product.

Americas strapping materials market

Growth in import and export of goods in industries such as pharmaceutical, textile, consumer electronics, and household appliances has a significant impact on product demand. Furthermore, employing different types of production technologies enables manufacturers to produce customized products to meet the requirements of various application industries.

Strapping offers a practical solution to reduce logistical expenses and is used as a substitute to film wraps. This reduces the weight of a pellet and saves the incremental value of shipments during domestic and international transportation. It can also efficiently be used to make consolidated shipments. This reduces transportation cost as it moves from less than truckload (LTL) shipment to truckload (TL) shipment.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for 73.1% of the revenue in 2017 on account of high penetration in the food and beverage industry resulting from increased demand for packaged food. It is an essential element for the packaging of food and beverage products to avoid damage or contamination during shipment, distribution, and storage.

U.S. packaging trends are rapidly evolving and stimulating designers in multiple industries to innovate. In addition, growing desire for convenience across the packaging industry has driven demand for products that fit into an increasingly urban, hectic lifestyle which also increased travel is projected to boost growth.

The Central and South America market was valued at USD 441.5 million in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 5.0% from 2018 to 2025. The rising middle-class population in the region, coupled with increased spending capability, is boosting online retail businesses, which is, in turn, projected to boost the growth of the logistics sector.

Metal product exports are an important component of Brazil’s foreign trade and contribute significantly to its trade surplus. The country is competent in terms of steel and aluminum production due to its large mineral reserves, low labor costs, and highly integrated and modernized production facilities. These factors are expected to drive demand for strapping materials in the region.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market is oligopolistic in nature, characterized by the presence of several global and regional players. Key players in this market include MOSCA GmbH; Polychem Corporation; Signode Packaging Systems Corporation; and StraPack, Inc. A large number of local players have been facing stiff competition from global companies.

The technical know-how that global entities possess and the investments they make in the development of high-quality strapping materials to meet customer requirements has intensified competition at a global level. These companies focus on establishing and expanding their footprint in regions with significant export volumes, thereby increasing the competitive pressure in the market.
