Barrier Materials Market by Type & by End-Use Industry – ****** Forecast to 2020

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.
