Vacuum sealer bags market- An overview
Increasing demand for microbial free packaged food is expected to propel the demand for air-tight packaging. Vacuum packing ensures product safety, freshness and hygiene for a longer duration. In Vacuum packing process, packaging is done in such a way that it removes air from the package before sealing it.
The vacuum packaging market has been growing because of the increasing food packaging market. Due to increased consumption of processed food and convenience food, the vacuum sealer bags are demanded more in the market.
These vacuum sealer bags offer an ease of handling, increased flexibility and portability which enhanced food popularity. This vacuum sealing technique ensured a longer shelf life with high sterile environment, and also prohibits food spoilage.
Not only in the food industry, but the vacuum sealer bags are used in various end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals, industries and consumer goods packing. These efficient vacuum sealer bags for packaging and shipping not only overcome bulk packaging challenges but are also water resistant so, manufacturers have an upper hand to enter the vacuum sealer bags market.
Therefore, the market for vacuum sealer bag is expected to grow but will have sluggish growth due to the novel Coronavirus spread, which has affected the packaging industry adversely.
Vacuum sealer bags market- Market dynamics
The vacuum sealer bags are anyways one of the best substitutes over containers or bags packaging as it offers comparatively high performance. The rising logistics due to urbanization and industrialization have been driving the market of vacuum sealer bags.
The vacuum sealer bag keeps the food away from the contact of air, so the natural moisture cannot evaporate, thus making it an excellent barrier and a feasible protector. This vacuum sealing technique involves manual or automatic placing of items in a plastic film package which comes in a roll, removes air from inside and seal the package.
The shrink films are sometimes used to provide tight fit to the inner contents. The intent of vacuum sealer bag is to remove oxygen from the container which ensures extended shelf life of the foods and to reduce the volume of the contents and package by compact packaging.
Increasing disposable income and willingness to spend for safe and hygienic food among customers have driven the vacuum sealer bags packaging growth in the market. Growing pharmaceutical industry is also expected to fuel the demand.
Popularity of polyethylene in manufacturing of vacuum sealer bags is widely seen because polyethylene is safe for food and has high shrink properties.
Apart from polyethylene, because of high flexibility, transparency and thermoformability the polyamide is also used for vacuum sealer bags manufacturing. Also, the demand for transparent and clear food covering is increasing which is matched by visual inspection of the food, is expected to increase the demand over the polyethylene in the vacuum sealer bags market.
