In 2021, the U.S. cold seal paper market estimated to increase by 4.5% year on year, bucking initial skepticism about how the market would perform during a global pandemic. Across the whole of North America, total demand for of cold seal paper is expected to reach new horizon attributing to optimizing production process and sustainability.
Global Cold Seal Paper: Market Outlook
Cold seal paper is a special adhesive-coated kraft paper that sticks to itself without using any substrates. It is an ideal solution for the safe and efficient packaging of spare parts in automobile or industrial applications.
The self-sealing property of the cold seal paper leaves no residue on the product after release thus helps in saving time and cost involved in applying staples or tapes to the item that may cause damage to the product inside it.
Additionally, the cold seal paper also protects the product inside it by preventing the formation of dirt and dust. Cold seal paper is also recyclable and can also be re-used for a variety of applications in e-commerce packaging, packing of auto components, furniture wrapping, among others.
What Are the Key Trends Impacting Growth of the Cold Seal Paper Market?
The new emerging technology in the sealing jaws and flow-wrap formation unit for paper cold-sealing applications is gaining traction in recent days. Amplified Heat Sealing (AHS) technology is used in the horizontal flow-wrappers and helps in the faster processing of mono materials, especially in sustainable packaging materials, like cold-sealable paper.
The flow-wrap forming unit and jaws not only help the faster processing of manufacturing of cold-seal papers but also helps in effectively shaping the cold seal paper without tearing or creasing it. Therefore, the AHS technology ensures accurate heat input which makes the process sensitive in mono materials for products such as crackers and cookies.
How Is the Demand for Ease & Convenience in E-Commerce Industry Uplifting the Cold Seal Paper Market?
The e-commerce industry is evolving in recent years owing to the development and adoption of the latest technology and consumer shift towards the online platform for shopping. This had led to the increase in the demand for cold seal paper in the product packaging.
The packaging not only securely holds the product but also prevents it from moving during transport by creating a solid, protective shell-like covering around the product which in turn prevents the product from getting damaged. The cold seal paper prevents abrasion and also creates a shock-absorbing shell to protect the product inside it.
What Are the Key Challenges that Might Restrain the Growth of the Cold Seal Paper Market?
The manufacturing process of cold seal paper requires the high-technology with the costly cold seal paper manufacturing machinery/equipment, and this results in a cost-intensive process for the manufacturers.
Lack in the adoption of the latest technology and inability to purchase the costly machinery or equipment for manufacturing of the cold seal paper, especially for new entrants or local players may result in the slow or hampered growth of the cold seal paper market.
