Barrier materials are categorized into varied types, such as PVDC, EVOH, and PEN, based on their functionalities. They possess inherent properties, such as high durability, strong impact and thermal, and chemical resistances. PVDC are advantageous in terms of transparency, gloss & printing characteristics, good scratch & abrasion resistance, and antilog as compared to other types. PVDC are readily available and can be easily converted into finished products, thereby meeting the necessary performance demands for varied applications, such as food & beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and agriculture industries.

Asia-Pacific is the leader of the barrier material market; this dominance is expected to continue till 2020. China is the key market in the region, accounting for more than half of the demand for barrier materials, followed by India, Japan, and Taiwan, where the demand is growing steadily. Increase in the demand for barrier materials, especially for PVDC, EVOH, and PEN has been observed in Asia-Pacific due to continued industrialization and growth of the manufacturing sector in the region. The continuous growth and innovation, along with industry consolidations, are projected to contribute to the growth of the industry.

PVDC is one of the key types of barrier materials. It is a highly effective barrier coating polymer that is produced by the polymerisation of a vinylidene chloride (VdC) monomer with other monomers such as acrylic esters and unsaturated carboxyl groups. It is the chemistry, density, and symmetry of the molecules in PVDC that give the material its excellent barrier properties against fat, vapor, and gases. PVDC is widely used in various end-user industries, such as food & beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and agriculture applications.

This study estimates the market size, in terms of value, of barrier material during the forecast period (2015-2020). As a part of the quantitative analysis, the study segments the market by material and end-use industry at a country level with the current market estimation and forecasts till 2020.

The global barrier material market was valued at USD 1.74 Billion in 2014 and is expected to reach USD 2.64 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.26%, between 2015 and 2020

The barrier materials market has witnessed a significant growth in the recent years, which is projected to persist in the coming years. . Owing to their properties of resistance against water vapor, atmospheric gases, and aroma, barrier materials are used in a wide range of end-use industries such as food & beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and agriculture packaging applications.

The major types of barrier materials include PVDC, EVOH, and PEN. The demand for barrier materials is expected to be high across industries such as food & beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and agriculture.

The barrier material market is observing a huge number of opportunities from which future growth is expected. The Supply-demand gap in raw materials and safeguarding against counterfeit products are the major challenges in the barrier material market.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the biggest market of barrier materials, accounting for nearly 42.37% of the total market size, in terms of value, in 2014. China dominates the barrier materials market, globally, which had the maximum market share in 2014, closely followed by the U.S. PVDC is the largest consumed type of barrier material, followed by EVOH.

On the basis of end-user industry, the barrier material market is further categorized into food & beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and agriculture, and others. In terms of volume, the food & beverage segment accounted for the largest share of 48.13% of the market in 2014, while, the market share for pharmaceutical was estimated to be 24.35%. The food & beverage end-user application of barrier materials is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 5.20% between 2015 and 2020, in terms of volume. The growth in end user-segment is primarily driven by the growing food & beverage and pharmaceutical industries, mainly in the developing nations.

The increasing demand from emerging economies, such as China and India for barrier materials, enhanced shelf-life of packaged food products and upward growth for pharmaceutical packaging industry are factors that drive the barrier material market in the Asia-Pacific region. In contrast to this, increasing to overall packaged products and stringent health regulatory compliance standards, environmental, and political norms act as major restraining factors hampering its market growth.

The major players of barrier material include Kuraray Co., Ltd (Japan), The DOW Chemical Company (U.S.), E.I. Du Pont de Numerous and Co. (U.S.), Solvay SA (Belgium), and Chang Chun Petrochemical Co., Ltd (Taiwan), Kureha Corporation (Japan), Ashahi Kasei Corporation (Japan), Teijin Limited (Japan), and Zhejiang Juhua Co., Ltd. (China).
