Metalized flexible packaging films are being used for personal healthcare, food & drink, and pharmaceutical products as barrier materials. Metalized flexible films offer a metallic gloss close to that of a regular aluminum foil for packaging, but at reduced weight and expense. Advancements in metalized packaging include durability, environmental sustainability, no breakage, longer shelf life due to higher barrier capabilities, and lower end-user supply chain costs. Traditional aluminum foil packaging and rigid containers are replaced easily by metalized flexible plastic packaging. The rising demand for consumer packaging and growing concerns about changing consumer preferences are boosting the demand for flexible metal packaging. One of the substantial factors projected to drive the market for metalized flexible packaging is the growing demand for longer shelves of products. Furthermore, initiatives are being taken by the government of many countries around the world and rising standards of hygiene during the expected timeframe.
Metalized film flexible packaging and aluminum foil-based flexible packaging are the numerous types of material in the market. The flexible aluminum foil-based packaging is expected to increase in value over the projected timeframe to retain the largest market shareholder in 2019. In packaging, aluminum foil-based flexible packaging is used for candy and pastries, frozen desserts, frozen meals, snacks, and coffee pouches, among others. It offers an excellent performance barrier against water vapor & gases, good thermal & mechanical characteristics, and good metal strength properties. These factors are expected to fuel the demand for aluminum foil-based flexible packaging.
The metalized flexible packaging market is categorized into wraps, cartons, pouches, and bags, among others, based primarily on the type of packaging. Pouches are simpler to manage and are chosen for the space they offer for product data and branding to fit. To make the transportation of food items simpler, they can be supplied in a wide variety of configurations. In medical facilities, flat pouches used for medical products are often very popular for sampling and storage. Therefore, the leading segment pouches are estimated to expand at a significant CAGR in 2019.
The numerous end-use sectors of the market are food, personal care, pet food, drink, and pharmaceuticals. The food segment is anticipated to lead the market over the projected timeframe. Shifting habits and busy schedules of the working population have driven the market for on-the-go flexible packaging products in the food & beverage industry. Food products are the primary user of flexible plastic packaging, due to their ease and portability. Reducing the quantity of packaging to minimize packaging waste without compromising the quality and hygiene of food products is one of the big developments in the food industry.
In terms of market share, due to the high demand for consumer-friendly, lightweight, and easy to handle commodities and the growing consumer emphasis on sustainability, the leading market segment is held by the European region. Furthermore, Asia-Pacific is predicted to expand at a high CAGR. The growth of this market is mainly driven by the growing population of the middle class and the rising demand for convenience food has also led to many important factors contributing to market growth.
