Food Grade Nylon Market Overview
Food grade nylon is one of the most adaptable and commonly-used thermoplastic materials. Its reasonable price and physical properties combine to make it a popular option for a wide range of applications.
It can substitute brass, steel, bronze, wood, rubber and aluminum while at the same time minimizing noise, using less lubrication and increasing the life of the equipment. Using regular metalworking tools, nylon can be implemented easily and processed into precision pieces.
Nylon plastics are commonly used in food contact materials. One of the most common uses is for kitchen appliances, including barbecue tongs, spatulas, whisks, turners and so on, due to the good heat and resistance to abrasion of nylon and its longevity.
Nylon specifically designed for food processing and storage applications are known as food grade nylon. Food grade nylon are specifically designed to protection, food safety and to extend the shelf-life. Apart from being lightweight and solid, food grade nylons are also resistant to diseases like bacteria, making them an important part of the food packaging industry.
Over the years, major efforts have been made towards the development of recyclable nylon, with manufacturers promoting the production of recyclable food grade nylon. Organizations like the Health Canada and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have regulated safety measures for developing food grade nylon.
The Escalating Growth Food & Beverage Industry Expected to Drive the Growth of Global Food Grade Nylon Market
The escalating growth of the food & beverage industry is expected to be the key factor contributing to the growth of the global food grade nylon market. Food packaging is possibly one of the main aspects of the food & beverage industry. Globally, the market for food packaging is expected to rise due to an increase in consumer product consumption.
Focus on healthy packaged food drives demand for food grade nylon that ensure no toxicity or bacterial presence in the packaged foods as well as biodegradability of the material to be disposed. As a result, the growing demand for food storage and packaging is anticipated to fuel demand for food grade nylon.
In addition, the rise in the consumption of processed food and the continued growth of retail food supply chains, especially in emerging countries, is expected to increase the demand for food grade nylon. Growing public awareness of environmental degradation as a result of the need for the production and implementation of plastic substitutes in the packaging industry.
