Wrap Market Insights from Avery Dennison
The wrap installation and PPF market is forecast to see sustained growth to 2030, what are your views on the current market and what are your predictions for the future?
There is no doubt that the growth we have been seeing in private vehicle and fleet applications - both wrapping and paint protection - is set to continue. This is a highly competitive market where both performance and emerging trends really matter, so we expect to see continuing product innovation. Paint protection films are seeing especially strong growth right now, so it’s an application that wrappers will want to keep in mind for business development.
What do you think are key considerations for wrap installers when choosing materials for a project?
Quality counts, both during application and out in the field. Good products are easy to install, and they offer the real-world durability demanded by end customers. We launched our paint protection film SPF-X3 with these and other requirements in mind. Whether wrapping with a decorative wrap or a protection film, faster and simpler application is essential to ensure time savings and the resulting cost savings.

You are taking part in the pit demos at WrapFest, what will people get to see during your sessions and what learnings will they take away from attending them?
The pit demo area offers a great opportunity for expert installers to demonstrate best practices. Supporting our customers as they develop their own skills is a priority for us, and there will be plenty of tips and tricks from our experienced trainers. Everyone who comes along will be welcome to ask their most challenging questions on wrapping, tinting and protection film use. We’ll have a full complement of trainers together with our technical team and product managers. That means plenty of insights and support.
