Antiviral Polymers for Packaging Market : An Overview
A major concern in food & beverage industries is food waste and the spoilage caused by food-borne pathogens and micro-organisms. It is expected that customer demand for fresh products will fuel innovation as manufacturers are working to increase the shelf life of packaged foods and beverages.
Antiviral polymers for packaging are produced using materials such as silver nanoparticles (AgNP). AgNPs also possess anti-viral, anti-fungi, and anti-yeast properties. Such nanoparticles will most notably be combined with edible and non-polymers. This factor can propel their use in active packaging of food.
Antiviral Polymers for Packaging Market: Dynamics
As per WHO, nearly 600 million diseases are caused annually by food-borne threats, primarily due to infectious agents causing diarrheal diseases (550 million), with HuNoVs responsible for 120 million cases related to water and food.
Although the incidence rate of HAV infection has decreased in high-income countries, partially due to the availability of immunization, high-profile outbreaks continue to be reported.
Since these viral pathogens are transmitted primarily via the faecal-oral route, infected food products, such as shellfish, leafy greens, and berries, are the key food products associated with viral foodborne outbreaks. Contamination by food handlers or cross-contamination from contaminated surfaces is primarily associated with ready-to-eat products, such as salads and, bakery or delicatessen goods, prepared or treated raw or after cooking.
Preventing viral contamination by good hygienic, agricultural and manufacturing practices remains the key strategy to be followed the use of antiviral polymers and biopolymers to produce possible antiviral materials in food applications is envisaged as a promising solution that could help prevent cross-contamination or recontamination by the hygiene principles.
Growing demand for biopolymers & antiviral polymers over petroleum-based goods will increase market growth in the coming years to minimize greenhouse emissions. These emissions can damage marine habitats and impact the food chain that contributes to bioaccumulation. To solve the issue, the production of bio-based composites & antiviral polymers for food packaging involves the manufacturing companies and research institutes in R&D.
Although the study of polymers and biopolymers has improved the food & beverage, healthcare industries but has substantially degraded the quality of composure of materials used for customized packaging. As customized packaging with biopolymers acts as inhibiting agents for foodborne bacteria and viruses. Thus, imparting antiviral polymers for packaging will actively help in the providing safe packaging of these products.
