High Barrier Film Packaging Market

Market Insights on High Barrier Film Packaging covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

High Barrier Film Packaging Market - Global Industry Analysis 2015-2019 and Opportunity Assessment; 2020-2030

High Barrier Film Packaging Market Overview

Hectic routine and the resulting convenience products requirement, along with the microwave cooking popularity has contributed to rising use of microwave-able retort ready meals packed in stand-up pouches and trays.

Flexible packaging solutions including, retort pouches, reseal able zippers, and spouts are replacing rigid pack designs, such as glass jars and metal tins. Customers’ growing requirement for product safety and convenience are encouraging increment in high-barrier packaging films demand. The global market will expand at a steady CAGR by the end of the forecast period.

High Barrier Film Packaging Market – Key Developments and Trends

Manufacturers are developing high barrier packaging films, especially for shelf-ready products, that offer ease of peel. For instance, Schur Flexibles Holding provides advanced high barrier packaging films for case-ready and processed products.

EVOH-derived shrink films are majorly preferred material, as they offer excellent protection from UV rays and extreme temperatures.

Manufactures all over the world are shifting to innovative packaging methods such as Modified Atmospheric Packaging (MAP), Aseptic Packaging, and Vacuum Skin Packaging, owing to greater benefits compared to traditional packaging methods.

Moreover, they are creating their proprietary packaging solutions such as Besela barrier film technologies that incorporate modified Poly Acrylic Acid(PAA) coating on PET base films.

Customer’s requirement for food with high quality and a longer shelf life has prompted the growth of progressively advanced multilayer film structures.

Reprocessing multi-material structures is an existing problem, as these are hard to isolate with the equipment installed in present-day materials recovery facilities (MRF). Conversely, new solutions are getting commercially accessible for reprocessing multilayer films.

High Barrier Film Packaging Market – Growth Restraints

While these packaging films have high application scope in pharmaceutical packaging and food & beverage packaging, the plastic waste generated worldwide has compelled governments in several nations to ban usage of plastic films.

Globally, about 348 million tons of plastic is produced, of which, merely 10% is goes to recycling plants. Moreover, recycling of high barrier film packaging is cost-intensive and complicated, thus, narrowing the profit margins of manufacturers.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has raised concerns regarding hygiene and safety of food products and drugs. Although for the short term, the sustainability aspect of various packaging companies is receiving a lower priority.

 The pandemic is bringing back the single-use plastic packaging to the forefront due to their better hygiene measure, however, outweighing concerns about recyclability and plastic-waste leakage into the oceans and lands.

As such, players in high barrier film packaging are rethinking sustainability along with hygiene and consumers’ safety concerns. Choice of materials and packaging designs are expected to have a measurable impact on the high barrier film packaging market amid the pandemic.
