Worldwide Metalized Film Consumption Analysis (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2022-2032)

Metallized films are polymeric films that have both, metal and plastic properties. A very thin coating/layer of metal is coated on one or both sides of the metallized films. Because of their favourable qualities, such as reducing permeability to light, water, and oxygen, metallized films are employed in a wide range of industrial applications.

Due to favourable product qualities, the metallized films industry is dominating the overall packaging films market, drawing new manufacturers to invest in it. These films protect packed goods from environmental changes, extending their shelf life.

Because of its advantageous features and inexpensive cost, BOPP films are replacing cellophane in areas such as snack and cigarette packaging. BOPP films are available in over 1,000 different variations. Flexible packaging, gift wraps, and decoratives are all made with metallized BOPP films.

Increased demand for metallized BOPP Film in electronics, food packaging, and insulation applications is driving market growth. High demand for electronics and electrical products has resulted in high demand for metallized BOPP films from major electronics industry players, as well as numerous insulation applications, indicating that the worldwide metallized BOPP films market will continue to grow in the future.

Global consumption of metallized films stood at around US$ 2.10 billion in 2017, expanded at a CAGR of 3% and reached a valuation of US$ 2.37 billion in 2021. Some of the most significant product innovations in the global metallized films market occurred during this period.

However, in terms of automation and quality of products, the projection year is expected to bring a big transformation in the product market. Many producers' current short-term goal is to make metallized films more durable and cost-effective.

Expanding at a CAGR of 4.3%, the global metallized films market is projected to increase from a valuation of US$ 2.44 billion in 2022 to US$ 3.72 billion by 2032.

How are Strict Regulations on Automation Film Usage Hampering Market Progress?

“Ban on Use of Automation Films in Some Countries to Hinder Sales Growth of Metallized Films”

Various governments control the usage of metallized films in the automotive industry. Government restrictions differ from one country to the next. Metallized films put on car window glass diminish Visible Light Transmission (VLT), limiting the amount of visible light entering the vehicle.

As a result, several countries have regulations prohibiting the screening of these films for a variety of reasons, including road safety, violence, and so on.

Use of 100 percent black tint window films on all window lenses is prohibited around the world, as these films reduce the motorist's visibility and raise the risk of an accident. For safety concerns, vehicles in nations including Kuwait, Bolivia, Portugal, Belarus, Libya, Iraq, Kenya, and Pakistan should have 100 percent clear films.

Tinted glasses are available from the manufacturer and can be used by drivers. The installation of metallized films on the front windscreen and side windows is prohibited in most European nations, however, the installation of films on the rear windshield and side windows is permitted, provided that the films are certified and licenced for usage in that country.

These rules could limit the expansion of the metallized films business in the automotive industry.

Which is the Most Profitable Regional Market for Metallized Film Manufacturers?

“Presence of Prominent Market Players in North America”

By 2032, the American region, which encompasses North and Latin America, is predicted to account for a significant portion of the worldwide metallized films market.

As opposed to Latin America, the metallized film industry in North America is considered to be more mature, as the area already houses the majority of the sector's major participants.

Currently, North America and Latin America are expected to account for 35.9% and 7.2% of the global market share, respectively.

High use of metallized films in daily product packaging as well as technological advancements in developing nations of the Asia Pacific region is expected to boost sales of metallized films in the Asia Pacific Market. In 2022, Asia Pacific is likely to hold 27.2% of the global market share.

In terms of demand, Europe is the third-largest metallized films market. The market is likely to develop in the future years as the European economy recovers and sales of metallized films rise.

The Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH) regulate the metallized films market in Europe, which monitors and sets rules for environmental protection and preventing health dangers caused by chemicals.

Environmental laws and shifting raw material prices have a huge impact on the growth of metallized films in the European economy. Environmentally friendly products are developed by industries in this region in collaboration with companies in the United States.

The Europe metallized films market is set to enjoy a valuation of US$ 597.4 million in 2022, and is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 925.8 million by 2032.
