Global Stainless Steel Foil Market - Overview
Corrosion is the biggest problem for most of the end users which need metals for packaging applications. As a result of this, manufacturers are looking for corrosion resistant metal packaging applications like stainless steel foil which provide an edge over other metal packaging applications. Furthermore, stainless steel foil are comparatively lighter and tough owing to special coating applied on it. In addition, stainless steel foil are also less expensive as compared to other metal packaging applications. One of the crucial factors that increases the preference towards stainless steel foil is the extended shelf life provided by the products. A large number of end use industry face problems related to damage, decay, spoilage, etc. due to exposure to humidity and air, which have resulted in the need for packaging solution like stainless steel foil. Excellent vapor barrier protection with water proof sealing provided by stainless steel foil makes it possible for retailers and vendors to increase shipment distance of packaged goods. Stainless steel foil provides better high strength to weight ratio as well as resistance towards oxidation at high temperature. 304 grade stainless steel foil is the most commonly used owing to less amount of carbon content which eliminates the chances of corrosion.
Global Stainless Steel Foil Market - Dynamics
The stainless steel foil market is expected to grow significantly owing to upsurge demand for lightweight and tough metal packaging solution across the globe. Stainless steel foils can be easily converted to alloys which are used in dairy, food, & pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless the material is very strong, stainless steel foil can be trimmed, perforated or pressed in order to provide better fit for desired applications. In addition, stainless steel foil can easily mix with additives like chromium, nickel, etc. which increases its strength and durability of the product. Furthermore, stainless steel foil can withstand high temperature with ultra-high vacuum (UHV) compatibility as compared to aluminum foil.
