A new study by Future Market Insights (FMI) provides a detailed analysis of global metalized barrier films market for the forecast period 2017 to 2022. The global market for metalized barrier films will register a steady 5% CAGR, to exceed revenues worth US$ 4,000 Mn by 2022-end.
All types of flexible packaging have a drawback of permeability, allowing oxygen or other gases to penetrate through them. In order to overcome this challenge, packaging manufacturers came up with metalized barrier films, which enable prevention of internal atmosphere of packaging from getting influenced by the external environment. Metalized barrier films offer more technological benefits to flexible packaging as compared to rigid packaging products, as they offer higher efficiency in insulating the products at affordable prices.
Manufacturers Focusing on Developing Innovative Products in Metalized Barrier Films Market
Leading manufacturers of metalized barrier films are focusing on developing innovative products, such as metalized barrier films with moisture and oxygen protection along with aroma protection. Another example is of stainless steel coated metalized barrier films that are print receptive, making it ideal for variety of graphic applications , thereby providing attractive packaging solutions. Continuous innovations in designs, and testing new materials, technologies and techniques are key strategies adopted by manufacturers for gaining a competitive edge in the market.
