Drivers

Demand for longer shelf life of food products

The increasingly busy lifestyle of consumers and the consequent demand for convenient food packaging is driving the demand for metallized films. Metallized films help increase the product life and reduce the use of preservatives. Metallized films also act as a printing substrate, which provides aesthetic appeal to the product. The food & beverages industry is shifting from traditional packaging formats to lightweight and easy-to-handle packaging. Metallized films help cater to this demand as they are lightweight compared to rigid packaging and eliminate the use of glass and cans which increases the weight of packaging.

Increasing demand for customer-friendly packaging

Increasing demand for stand-up pouches for products such as packed meals and microwaveable food drive the usage of metallized films. The use of metallized films eliminates the need for rigid packaging, glass bottle, boxes, and cans. Microwaveable food is currently in high demand owing to changing lifestyle and increasing middle-class household income to spend on convenient food items. Owing to its properties such as preservation of aroma and protection against odor, metallized films are demanded for the packaging of food products.

Restraint

Stringent regulations on automotive films in various countries

The use of metallized films in the automotive sector is regulated by various governments. The regulations imposed by governments vary from country to country. Metallized films which are installed on window glasses of vehicles reduce visible light transmission (VLT), which restrict visible light entering the vehicle. Therefore, in many countries, there are laws which restrict the use of these films due to various reasons such as road safety, violence, and so on.

Across the globe, 100% black tint window films on all window glasses are not allowed, as these films restrict the visibility of the motorist and increase the chances of accidents. In countries such as Portugal, Belarus, Libya, Kuwait, Bolivia, Iraq, Kenya, and Pakistan, vehicle should have 100% transparent films for safety reasons. Motorist can use tinted glasses which comes installed from the manufacturer. In most of the European countries, metallized films on the front windshield and side windows are not allowed, whereas the installation of films on rear windshield and side windows are allowed, provided the films should be certified and approved for use in the specific country. These regulations may restrict the growth of the metallized films market in automotive application.

The metallized film market is estimated at USD 2.20 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 2.82 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.09%. The market is driven by the wide use of metallized film in end-use industries, such as packaging and decorative.

Based on material, the polypropylene (PP) segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the metallized film market in 2018. PP metallized film is a good moisture barrier but poor oxygen barrier. This film is metallized to improve its barrier properties and to increase the shelf life of packed products. Owing to its resistance to chemicals and its low odor, this film is suitable for use in applications regulated under the FDA regulations. The use of PP metallized film in packaging application for products which require a long shelf life, such as food, bakery products, snacks, and candies, is driving the growth of this market. This film is also widely used in the electrical & electronics industry for communication equipment, timing circuit, and filter networks. These factors are the key drivers for the glass fiber metallized film market.

Aluminum metallized film is expected to be the largest segment, by metal, during the forecast period. Aluminum metallized film offers excellent barrier performance against water vapor & gases, good metal bond strength, glossy appearance, good lamination bond strength, and good thermal & mechanical properties. Aluminum metallized film is used in packaging for snacks, frozen foods, sweets and pastries, frozen desserts, coffee pouches, and so on. Stand-up pouches allow printing of high-quality, glossy graphics on the package, which makes them attractive and appealing to customers. Such factors are expected to drive the demand for aluminum metallized film in Europe.

Based on end-use industry, the packaging segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the metallized film market in 2018. Metallized film is used to add barrier property in the packaging of processed fruits and vegetables, beverages, snacks, coffee, and tobacco products. Packages using metallized film are formed into pouches, sacks, bag-in-box bags, or other types of packages. Owing to busy and hectic lifestyles, consumers opt for convenient mealtime solutions. This puts ready-to-eat meals in flexible packaging formats in a good position to take advantage of the current social and economic trend. Flexible packaging is the most cost-effective method to package, preserve, and distribute food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and other products that need extended shelf life. These factors are expected to drive the demand for metallized film in the packaging industry.

The Europe metallized film market is expected to witness strong growth in the next five years. The major factor behind Europe’s high market share is the high demand for lightweight, consumer-friendly, and easy to handle products. Growing focus on sustainability, increased need for extended shelf life, rising standards of hygiene, and consumer focus on ease of use are the key drivers of the metallized film market in the region.

The APAC metallized film market is projected to witness the highest growth from 2018 to 2023, mainly due to the rapid expansion of end-use industries such as food & beverages, healthcare, and cosmetics & toiletries. Factors such as rising disposable income, changing lifestyles, and growing middle-class population are expected to drive the demand for packaging, which, in turn, is expected to support the growth of the metallized film market. Moreover, the rising demand for ready-to-eat food, convenience food, and processed & semi-processed food offer growth opportunities for the metallized film market in APAC.

Issues in product inspection

The major challenge for the manufacturers of metallized film is product inspection. A large number of users have relied on metal detection as a means of inspection. With the rising demand for products packaged within metallized film-coated pouches, it is challenging for metal detection systems to meet the specifications required by retailers for this format. Vision inspection is not possible as the packages are not clear.

Nowadays, manufacturers are opting for X-ray inspection. As metallized films have very little absorbance value, the X-ray is not affected by the packaging. Hence retailers’ specifications can be met with ease. X-ray is capable of detecting several other physical contaminants, such as metal, stones, dense plastic, glass, and rubber components. However, installation of x-ray devices entails extra investment for users.
