Metalized films are polymer films coated with thin layers of metal, usually aluminum with a matte or gloss finish which offers decorative and protective properties to the product.
The global Metalized Film market was worth $XX million in 2017 and is forecasted to reach $XX million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2018-2025).
Global Metalized Film Market – Market Dynamics
The increase in demand of metalized films for user-friendly packaging in pharmaceutical, food and beverages, and personal care sectors is positively influencing the market growth. Metalized films can improve product shelf-life over other available products by resisting the creation of microscopic punctures and retaining its high barrier properties. The rising consumer awareness concerning the benefits offered by metalized films such as reduced weight and cost-effective prices have boosted the sales volume of end-products. Thus, key companies are focused on product development and technological innovation in an attempt to expand the product portfolio and meet the rising demands from consumers. For instance, in February 2018, Remtec Inc. announced the commercialization of etchable gold thick film process for High Definition Thick Film (HDTF), offering a significant advancement in miniaturization, circuit density, and performance.
The volatility in raw material prices and non-availability of metals for metallization procedures might hamper the market demand, coupled with issues faced during the times of product inspection. The production process involves complex procedures, which might damage the external material layer owing to decreasing barrier properties.
The development of metalized films has led to the expanded application of end-products in the electronics industry, offering companies opportunities for business expansion in the market.
