Barrier Materials for Flexible Packaging - 2012 to 2016

Abstract

“Barrier Materials for Flexible Packaging 2012 to 2016” examines a comprehensive range of technologies - each with its optimal applications, market potential, economic profile and environmental impact - for barrier materials that are used in the production of flexible packaging. The study focuses on materials that provide oxygen transmission rates from zero to 77.5 cc/m2/day (5 cc/100in2/day) and/or moisture vapor transmission rates from zero to 1.5 gm/m2/day (0.10 gm/100in2/day).

This study's Market Analysis section examines key drivers and trends affecting the entire industry, and it separately analyzes the potential and limitations of each barrier material used in the production of flexible packaging. In addition, the Market Analysis presents both historical and projected future consumption for each material through 2016.

Several case scenarios are analyzed to compare the relative economics of barrier materials at various levels of oxygen barrier. It also tracks the changes in these relationships through time. Additionally, complementary cases examine the environmental impacts (GHG emissions) of these same barrier materials.

With this new study you can:

  • Learn how the increasing focus on the environment will impact barrier materials
  • Learn about the new and emerging barrier materials for flexible packaging
  • Envision the future potential of each of the barrier materials used in the flexible packaging market
  • Understand the economic value of barrier materials at various levels of barrier
  • Learn which barrier materials are used in a variety of end-use applications
  • Find out which suppliers of barrier materials will benefit from the market and technology developments and trends
