Global Foil Laminates Market Overview

Foil laminates are the multilayer films of plastics or paper with one of the thin layer of metal. This additional layer of metal adds to the attractive aesthetics of the packaging. Moreover, the metal layer provides moderate barrier properties against moisture. Various other properties in addition to these have created wide applications for the foil laminates in multiple industries. These factors have contributed to the well-established foil laminates market globally.

Metals possesses some of the superior physical properties such as moisture barrier, luminosity, high strength and others. As it is difficult to produce the required thickness of metal for flexible packaging, therefore, a thin coating of metals on the plastics or paper provides the solution for flexible metal packaging. Moreover, foil laminates weigh lower due to the low density of paper and plastics.

Market share of metals in packaging is considerably high, and most of it is used in flexible packaging products.

Global Foil Laminates Market Developments

The application of thin metal layer on different materials results in enhanced properties and better aesthetics. Although, the layer of the metal provide moderate barrier properties, the application of metal layer on high barrier material results into a packaging product with superior barrier properties, which is desirable in premium cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, packaged food and some other packaging applications. The liquid packaging cartons, especially for dairy products, are attracting the end-consumers leading to the inclination in the growth rate of demand. As most of the liquid packaging cartons are made up of foil laminates, the liquid packaging cartons are expected to create a large opportunity for foil laminates market during the forecast period. Moreover, the development of printing technology has enabled the printing of high-quality creative graphics, which has found applications in interior and decorations.
