Metallized paper could be an alternative to plastic-based packaging especially in labelling which is essential for branding of any product. Several stringent rules set by the regulatory bodies to slow down the usage of plastic in packaging will continue to fuel the growth of the metallized paper market. This move has also pushed the manufactures of packaging materials to increase their units’ capacity for the production of metallized paper at all the major regions of the world.

Metallized paper is increasing in demand, due to its usage as a gift wrapping paper especially in developed countries of Europe and North America. The growth of metallized paper might be stunted to some extent, due to issues in its recyclability. Metallized paper is strenuous to recycle as it has multiple layer papers that are coated with two or more materials – representing a potential threat for the manufacturers.
