Increasing Demand for Metallized Film in the Food & Beverages Industry

Metallized films are polymer films coated with metal, usually aluminium. Polymers used for manufacturing metallized films are polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polyester, and others. Metallized films are widely used in the food and beverage packaging industry. They offer superior barrier to oxygen, bacteria, and moisture from entering the food packages. This helps in extending the shelf life of the product. Moreover, they prevent bacterial spoilage and keep the food fresh and hot for a longer time. Furthermore, metallized films are highly cost effective than aluminium file laminates. All these factors are driving their demand in the food & beverages industry, propelling the market growth.

Within the report, the market is segmented into material, metal, end-use industry, and geography. By material, the market is segmented into polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and others. On the basis of metal, the market is segmented into aluminum and others. Based on end-use industry, the market is segmented into food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, electrical & electronics, and others. Geographically, the market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Growth of the Packaging Industry

The global packaging industry has evolved significantly in the recent years with the introduction of flexible packaging materials. Flexible packaging use non-rigid materials and are affordable and easily customizable. The rising demand for convenience and packaged food, rise in takeaway and delivery services, and development of e-commerce all have contributed towards the growth of packaging industry. Metallized films are widely used for packaging snack foods, bakery and confectionery products, fresh vegetables and fruits, pharmaceutical products, among others. Metallized films are affordable alternatives to aluminum foil and resemble similar barrier properties to aluminum foil. Thus, the growth of packaging industry coupled with rising usage of metallized films as packaging material are the factors driving the metallized films market. 

Rising Demand for Insulation Application

Metallized films, especially metallized PET films, are used in spacesuits to reflect heat radiation and keep astronauts warm. They are also used in proximity suits used by firefighters for protection from the high amount of heat released from fuel fires. Aluminized emergency blankets also known as space blankets are also used to conserve the body heat of a shock victim. Further, metallized PET films are used as antistatic container for other heat and sound insulating materials used in aircraft. Thus, rising usage of metallized films for insulation application is driving the market growth.
