Metalized barrier films are referred to polymer films, which are coated with a delicate metal layer, usually aluminium. Metalized barrier films come in various types including lids, sachets, stretch wrap films, shrink films, blister pack base webs, and pouches. Metalized barrier films lower the need for preservatives, serving as a printing substrate, and prolonging the products’ shelf-life.

Rise in Demand for Ready-to-Eat Food Products Packed in Pouches

Metalized barrier films have become an imperative part of the packaging sector, gaining significant attraction of manufacturers owing to their robust demand for various end-use purposes. Emerging as a substitute of aluminium foil, metalized barrier films offer a glossy metallic appearance along with reduced weight and cost. There has been a robust demand for packaged food and beverages among consumers across the globe, on the back of their busy lifestyle. A key trend being observed in the global metalized barrier films market is soaring demand for microwave cooking and convenient food products. This trend has further led towards a rise in demand for ready-to-eat food products packed in pouches, which in turn has fuelled demand for metalized barrier films for production of these pouches.

Biodegradability continues to be a major challenge for metalized barrier film manufacturers. However, the same challenge is expected to create an opportunity for manufacturers in developing biodegradable metalized barrier films, with government as well as non-government organisations promoting adoption of bio-based materials.
