Micro-perforated films are thin polymeric films with perforations that enable the exchange of water vapor and gases. These films are manufactured from polymeric materials, such as Polyethylene (PE), Propylene (PP), Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), and others, including Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Polystyrene (PS), and Polyamide (PA). These films are used to pack perishable food products so as to provide longer shelf life. These are widely used in food packaging applications, such as fresh fruits & vegetables, bakery & confectionary, ready-to-eat food, and others which include poultry, meat, and seafood. Increasing demand for longer shelf life food products and growing number of different retail formats are the major factors driving the market for micro-perforated films globally. The growth is further driven by the need to reduce food spoilage.

North America is estimated to be the largest market for micro-perforated films in 2017. Increasing awareness towards the consumption of healthier and convenience food products, presence of major manufacturers, along with the higher penetration of retail formats is expected to boost the demand for micro-perforated films in the region during the forecast period.
