Global synthetic paper market was valued at around $ 290 million in 2018 and is projected to reach $ 420 million by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.2%. Growing demand for synthetic paper in both packaging and label industry on account of its properties such as exceptional printability, predictable convertibility, and a smooth surface for improved production is anticipated to propel growth in the market. Synthetic paper is basically an appropriate printing medium for indoor advertisements, posters, banners as well as other kinds of photo printing. The special layer of coating on the paper makes the image more colorful and attractive and exhibits resistance against chemicals, grease, folding and heat. This, in turn, increases its application in the development of toxic-free thermoforming products for food packaging.

The market for synthetic paper has been segmented into type, application and region. Among types, Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) segment is anticipated to lead the global market and account for a major share in the global market. Based on application, the market is categorized into label and non-label. Synthetic paper is extensively used in non-label applications as it meets all the environmental requirements and does not cause pollution as it does not produce any toxic gases during the incineration process. Thus, non-label application segment led the global market in 2018 and accounted for a market share of approximately 60%. While, the label application segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of 8% during forecast period.

Packaging & labeling and printing industries are the two major end user industries of synthetic paper. Their growth is driven by the rising affluence of the middle class in the developing countries, coupled with a rapid rate of urbanization which has led to a rise in the consumerism opportunities, such as a high demand for consumer goods and lifestyle services.

Regionally, the market has been segmented as North America, South America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for synthetic paper as it is one of the major consumers of synthetic paper. This is due to increase in the usage of synthetic paper in the food & beverages industries in the region. Demand for synthetic paper is increasing in the developed as well as developing countries, such as Japan, China, Taiwan, India, Australia, and other countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
