Furthermore, metalized barrier films find their massive usage in the application of several pharmaceutical products such as tablets, capsules, powders, creams, ointments, etc. The pharmaceutical industry is expanding globally and this will drive the growth of the market in the forecast period. For instance, as per the 2020 data by the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, the production of medicines in the European region touched US$ 317,942.75 million in 2019 which was US$ 300,434.09 in the previous year. Polypropylene is projected to witness the highest demand in the forecast period. Other materials such as polyethylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polyamides, and ethylene vinyl alcohol will witness significant demand in the forecast period. The fluctuations in the prices of these materials might hamper the market’s growth in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

The metalized barrier films market was positively impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Challenges such as supply chain disruption and raw material procurement surfaced during the pandemic, slowing down the business in the market. Despite these challenges, the market witnessed significant growth owing to the increased demand for packaging applications of ready-to-eat meals, packaged foods, fresh vegetables, and various pharmaceutical products. According to the August 2020 report by Uflex Ltd, the demand for packaging surged owing to the personal hygiene category. Going forward, the metalized barrier films market is projected to witness significant growth due to the massive demand for barrier films generated in end-use sectors like food and beverage, personal care and cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.

Metalized Barrier Films Market – By Type

The ultra-high barrier film segment dominated the metalized barrier films market and is growing at a CAGR of 5.4% in the forecast period. This type of barrier film is used in demanding applications such as high moisture sensitivity. Ultra-high barrier films are a suitable alternative to aluminum foil and provide superior metal-to-film bond strength. Owing to such excellent properties, market players are focusing on the higher development of ultra-high barrier films. For instance, in September 2021, Flex Films, the global film manufacturing arm of UFlex, launched metallic polyester ultra-high barrier film F-UHB-M as a replacement for aluminum foil in flexible packaging applications. Such developments in the ultra-high barrier films segment will increase its demand in the metalized barrier films market during the forecast period.

Metalized Barrier Films Market Challenges

Fluctuation in the prices of raw materials might hamper the market’s growth

The metalized barrier films involve raw materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, and polyethylene terephthalate. These are petroleum-derived raw materials whose prices are fluctuating because of the volatility in petroleum prices and this might affect the growth of the metalized barrier films market in the forecast period. Petroleum prices dropped historically during the pandemic. According to the statistics by ourworldindata.org, the crude oil price in 2017 stood at US$ 54.19 per barrel which surged to US$ 64.21 per barrel in 2019. In 2020, the oil price again lowered to US$ 41.84 per barrel. Such fluctuations in oil prices created volatility in the price of petroleum, thereby fluctuating the prices of raw materials. This fluctuation in the raw material prices might hinder the growth of the metalized barrier films market in the forecast period.
