Forming Films Market – Overview
Forming films increases shelf life of the products. Forming films are majorly used in food and beverages industry and the market is likely to remain stable during the forecast period. The use of forming films in medical field for sterilized equipment and surgical tools is expected to rise in the next decade. Metalized films are primarily used for medicinal purposes to avoid exposure to light-sensitive materials. High-performance films are preferred by large-scale industries where the performance and the efficiency of forming films is integral. The solutions offered to large-scale manufacturers are tailor-made for the packaged products and the machinery specification of the manufacturer. The usage of oil-based plastics for forming films has been seen in the past decade due to their efficiency. These forming films maintain protection against oxygen and increased shelf life. Due to global warming, the research for sustainable material for forming films have become an essential part of research and development in the emerging markets. The sustainable materials that have been experimented include a whey-based coating on the products. The sustainable forming films need to maintain an oxygen barrier, MVOH (Moisture vapor transmission rate), sensory attributes, coating density and thermo-mechanical properties for the products.
Forming Films Market – Market Dynamics
The food and beverages industry is focusing on using transparent forming films to increase contact clarity, flexibility, thermal malleability, barrier capabilities and the preservation rate of the materials. The current production of forming films is based on petrochemical polymers and biopolymers. But a rise in the sustainable forming films will be the trend in the coming decade. Sustainable forming films have been introduced in the form of non-rigid forming films by Wipak. Sustainable PET (Polyester films) for forming films is likely to grow in the forecast period. Compliance with the packaging standards for food and beverages industry is determined by the FDA. The FDA maintains stringent policies for packaging of food products to maintain the quality of packaged goods. The changes in these policies play a key role in demand requirements for the forming films market. There is a rise in the usage of non-clear or metallic coated form films for medical applications. Standard materials used for forming films are both recyclable and non-recyclable. The trends of recyclable forming films will be in the lead in the forthcoming decade.
Forming Films Market – Key Segments
The forming films market is segmented by film type, material and end-use applications. On the basis of film type, the forming films market is segmented into low barrier, medium barrier, high barrier and standard barrier. The materials used for the production of forming films is usually EVOH (Ethylene vinyl alcohol), Nylon, EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate), Surlyn, Metallocene and PET (Polyester films). On the basis of food & beverages, the forming films market is segmented into packaged goods, such as meats, processed meat, frozen meat, poultry, cheese, frozen seafood and others. In the healthcare sector, forming films are used to package sterilized equipment and medical products.
