6.4% CAGR

Vapor barrier films have transformed the packaging industry since their introduction a few years ago. These have revolutionized the packaging of materials, such as perishable food items and moisture sensitive military equipment.

Inner foil-laminate vapor barriers are extensively used for the packaging of single-serving boxes of juice to provide the beverage with a long shelf life. This helps in preventing the ingress of oxygen that would otherwise spoil the flavor of the beverage.

These films are available in a wide range of types for numerous applications. Their high efficiency, heat sealable, and inexpensive nature are set to make these more popular across the globe.

As compared to a sheet of acrylic glazing, a 6-mil sheet of laminated vapor barrier films can resist the transmission of atmospheric gases, such as water vapor. These are best suited for the fabrication of passive humidity-controlled storage or shipping bags.

How is Insect Infestation Pushing the Vapor Barrier Films Market Growth

Vapor barrier films have numerous advantages, unlike an acrylic box or a welded metal. These are flexible, less expensive, and easier to fabricate. Their high flexibility is capable of compensating for pressure changes inside a packaging case owing to changes in temperature.

In the treatment of insect infestations, these films are set to be used for maintaining low oxygen atmospheres. Performance levels for these films need to be complied with several military specifications, including contact corrosivity, breaking strength, water vapor permeability, oil resistance, and flame resistance. These factors are projected to drive the vapor barrier films market growth in the evaluation period.

Which Factors Are Hindering the Vapor Barrier Films Market Growth

The demand for single-layer vapor barrier films may get obstructed owing to the ability of multilayer films to provide numerous properties, such as high robustness and enhanced strength. But, as these films are made by using several materials, their recyclability is considered to be a major challenge.

In addition, vapor barrier films are susceptible to oxidative degradation at high temperatures. Polyvinylidene Chloride (PVDC) which has similar properties as that of PVC, is usually unstable if exposed to heat and UV light. The degradation in these films mainly occurs due to the presence of cracks and pinholes in coating layers. Spurred by the aforementioned factors, sales of vapor barrier films may get hampered in the near future.

Why is the Asia Pacific Vapor Barrier Films Market Growing at a Rapid Pace

Asia Pacific is anticipated to register the largest vapor barrier films market share in the evaluation period. This growth is attributable to the increasing demand from numerous end-use industries, such as agriculture and food and beverage packaging across India, China, and South Korea.

The rising awareness regarding sustainability among people in these countries is another crucial factor that is projected to bode well for the market. Sales of PE films are expected to surge at a rapid pace across Asia Pacific backed by their high moisture barrier properties.
