Request Covid -19 Impact

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.

High Barrier Film Packaging Market – Region-wise Analysis

Europe and North America would remain at the driver’s seat in the high barrier film packaging market, based on manufacturing capacity and demand. Evolving trends such as on-the-go flexibility and at-home usage are fueling the demand for packaged foods and beverages in both the regions.

Presence of well-established digital ecosystem continues to attract stakeholders. Furthermore, the flexible packaging industries in North America and Europe are outpacing the rigid packaging market, given rising concerns regarding ecological burden.

Moving ahead, the high barrier film packaging market in Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to witness rapid, owing to surging consumption of ready-to-eat (RTE) food products.

High Barrier Film Packaging Market: Competitive Analysis

Market players are aggressively focusing on enhancing their global footprint by mergers & acquisitions (M&A), and enhancing product portfolios.

  • In order to boost its ability to develop eco-friendly, clean, safe liners, Mondi PLC has set up its new unit in Styria to develop high-barrier, side-folded tubes for FIBCs. This further enables the company to make these films in several structures, from PE/EVOH to seven-layered PE/PA/EVOH, and PE to PE/PA structures.
