Press release Description

Albany, New York, November 16, 2016: The global stretch and shrink films market is expected to grow at a healthy pace owing to a high demand for light-weight material for industrial packaging.

As a result of these and other drivers, the global stretch and shrink films market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.2% between 2015 and 2024, states a latest report that is now available on Market Research Reports Search Engine (MRRSE).
