What is the need for plastic envelopes
Plastic envelopes are required as they are more secure than the paper and cloth envelopes. Weather can be really testing in India making them a safe bet for transporting of important documents.
Obviously it would be too naive to credit the complete growth to the effort of the printing industry when 40% of the plastic envelopes available in major metro are non commercial. What is driving the cost is not just safety but price point advantage as well. With cloth envelope costing similar to plastic envelopes their is more taker of the later.
