PVC Blister Packs Market: Dynamics
PVC Blister Packs to have Opportunities in Food & Beverage Industries
Polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) is a vinyl polymer that is a raw material used for food packaging. The use of PVDC content in food packaging improves the package's appearance through its shine, clarity, print-adhesion and resistance to scratching.
PVDC is added to synthetic films such as BOPP and Polyester as water-based coatings. PVDC plays a significant function as a coating or laminating on PVC in blister packaging. Through the use of PVDC, the gas and moisture permeability of the PVC blister packaging is minimized to some degree. This also creates an ideal buffer for both water and oxygen vapor.
Thermoforming Segmentation to gain maximum traction for PVC Blister Packs
The products used for the thermoforming process include LDPE, HDPE, PVC, PP, PS, and others such as acrylic. The thermoforming process is particularly used in the manufacture of PVC Blister packets of aluminum and plastic blisters.
Plastics thermoforming requires low initial tooling and cost of equipment in contrast with injection and blow molding techniques. Thermoformed plastic PVC films offer a wide scope of design and a visually appealing appearance which leads to an increase in their demand for PVC Blister Packs.
Clamshell Packaging to Constrain Growth of PVC Blister Packs
Clamshell packaging are the environment friendly packaging with only single substrate which either plastic or paper that makes it easy for recycling. Many applications can be seen for as of now such as salads, pre-made sandwiches, fruits, bakery products etc.
The major constrains of clamshell packaging for PVC Blister Packs are the easy to use, No Wrap rage, & most important easy to recycle with flexible nature to mold it becomes difficult for PVC Blister packs to compete with Clamshell packaging which are tough and difficult to reform. Hence clamshell packaging is major constrains for the market growth of PVC Blister Packs.
