According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Barrier Films Market Report by Type (Metalized Barrier Films, Transparent Barrier Films, White Barrier Film), Material (Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Polyamides (PA), Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol (EVOH), Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE), and Others), End Use (Food and Beverage Packaging, Pharmaceutical Packaging, Agriculture, and Others), and Region 2023-2028,” the global barrier films market size reached US$ 33.1 Billion in 2022. Barrier films are specialized packaging materials designed to provide protection against external factors, such as moisture, oxygen, light, and contaminants to preserve the quality and shelf life of products. These films are typically composed of multiple layers of materials, including polymers and sometimes metal, to achieve the desired barrier properties. They offer high resistance to moisture and oxygen permeation, excellent transparency, flexibility, and compatibility with various printing and labeling methods. Consequently, these films are commonly used in food and beverage (F&B), pharmaceuticals, electronics, and agriculture industries to extend the freshness and shelf life of perishable goods, prevent the oxidation of sensitive products, maintain the sterility of medical devices and drugs, and protect electronic components from moisture and corrosion.
Global Barrier Films Market Trends:
The rising demand for packaged F&B products, necessitating the use of these films to increase the shelf life of products and maintain their freshness, is a significant driver of the global barrier films market. In line with this, ongoing product innovation and the development of high-performance barrier films that offer superior protection against moisture, oxygen, and other external factors are favoring the market growth. Moreover, barrier films find extensive applications in the electronics industry for protecting sensitive electronic components from moisture and other contaminants, which is contributing to the market growth. In addition to this, the rising demand for barrier films across the agriculture industry for greenhouse covers and mulching, combined with the expanding product adoption in pharmaceutical and healthcare packaging to maintain the integrity and sterility of medical products, are presenting lucrative opportunities for the market expansion. Furthermore, the globalization of trade fueling the need for effective packaging and transportation solutions and stringent regulations related to food safety and product quality are facilitating the adoption of barrier films in various industries. Apart from this, the surge in e-commerce activities has increased the requirement for protective packaging materials, such as barrier films, to ensure the safe delivery of products to consumers, thereby aiding in market expansion. Besides this, the launch of sustainable barrier films made from recyclable and biodegradable materials are gaining popularity as they help reduce the carbon footprint and promote a circular economy, which in turn is providing a considerable boost to the market growth. Other factors, including the development of high-performance films with enhanced barrier properties, growing demand for convenience and on-the-go packaging and rising food safety regulations, are presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 45.4 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 5.4 % during 2023-2028.
