Sealant Web Films Market: Analysis & Forecast

Multilayer packaging films have benefits over mono-layer packaging ones due to their efficiency and durability during transportation. Sealant web films are used for both, to laminate a packaged product and to make bags & pouches from it. Sealant web films with multilayer packaging should have low melting point so that they can be heat-sealed easily. Sealant web films are used in the food & beverage packaging industry. Hence, sealant web films that do not react with food are especially manufactured. Sealant web films are made up of heat sealable materials like polyolefin, resulting into a better performance of the multi-layer film.

Sealant web films maintain integrity of packaging and protect its contents from leakage and degradation. Sealant web films are usually used in the inner-most layers of packaging films to enhance their performance and sealing strength. Barrier protection is a necessary factor for maintaining the aroma & flavor of food, but it is much more beneficial to add sealant web films in co-extruded films or to laminate the packaged product with them. Introduction of varieties such as metallized films and bio-based films in sealant web films are Changing preferences of brand owners and manufacturers. Sealant web films, when metallized, have converted a 3-ply structure of a film into 2-ply structure which is a crucial factor in technical specifications of a product.

The food & beverages segment is estimated to have the highest growth rate and market share in the upcoming years in the sealant web films market, as per the increasing consumer demands & need for convenient packaging solutions.
