Study Looks at BOPA Capacity

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE, UK | The serious overcapacity that has faced the biaxially oriented nylon film (BOPA) industry since 2004 appears to be nearly over, concludes a study from PCI Films Consulting. Managing director Simon King says, “The massive increase in capacity that occurred in the past has finally been absorbed into the market, and our projections for demand growth over the next five years suggest that new capacity is required to satisfy world demand.”

As PCI's new report, “World BOPA Film Market Trends 2010,” suggests, the excess capacity now has largely been driven from the market, partly by the rationalization of production and partly because of the growth in demand (at an average rate of 8%/yr since 2004).
