The Bi-Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) packaging tapes market is set for healthy growth according to a report by Future Market Insights and Asia-Pacific will experience the most growth. Companies such as Toplink Packaging, Shenzhen Zhan Hongxin Technology and SR Packaging are expected to take advantage of the rise in purchasing power in developing economies as retail sectors demand more packaged goods.

As a result, the carton sealing BOPP packaging tapes is being fuelled by this demand. Europe, on the other hand, is expected to experience moderate growth in the next 12 months as will Latin America.

This follows recent news by ZION Research that the overall BOPP market will reach $15.55bn globally by 2020. In 2014 it was valued at £10.81bn with a total volume of 7.39 million tonnes.

Speaking about the developments, Chad Harrison International MD, Luke Robbins-Wells said, “Since the beginning of the year we have witnessed an increasing number of positions opening up in the Asia Pacific region. Companies are looking to Europe and the USA for BOPP packaging expertise and we are beginning to place candidates into senior roles in the region.”

However, moderate growth in Europe means countries such as Germany remain a key region for BOPP packaging. CHI has recently opened an office in the German city of Dusseldorf in order to provide a localised, improved service to clients and candidates alike.

Talent acquisition in the BOPP market

Luke continued, “Global growth is expected in the BOPP packaging tapes market. For us, solidifying our presence in Europe is important as we continuously speak with top talent in the packaging and plastics industry as well as with international corporations based in the countries that are benefiting from this growth. The packaging industry as a whole is an exciting market at the moment and talent acquisition is important to many of the top companies at this time. We’re working with many of them to find the best available candidates in the international market”
