Rapid pace of design and technological innovation in the packaging industry has led to the development of packaging products that specifically cater to industry needs. Breather bags are one such innovative packaging product specifically addressing the issue of transporting aquatic livestock among host of other industry requirements. The market for breather bags is characterized by plastic material bags being supplied for the packaging and transportation of pharmaceutical products, aquatic livestock and food for aquatic livestock. Breather bags have wider scope in the pharmaceutical sector as the market is growing at a substantial rate and is expected to face a major transformation.
Breather bags functions in a respirational manner by aligning inner atmosphere of the packaging as per the air components required by the packaged material. Breather bags are made of special design films that provide micro-porosity characteristics to the bag which allow constant passage of gases such as carbon di oxide and oxygen. These breather bags have the advantage of gas exchange through its walls, and the exit rate of carbon-dioxide compared to the oxygen is four times faster thus making it economical for the aquatic livestock transporters. These micro-porosity properties of breather bags make them an effective substitute for any other packaging material including thermoform and corrugated paperboard.
Breather Bags Market- Market Dynamics
Key factor supporting the growth of breather bags market is the molecular realignment property of the bag’s material (ethylene), wherein the molecules realign in such a way that they either reduce the pore size or reseal it. Pressure maintenance is another factor in the growth of breather bags market as when there is a different pressure around the bag it equalizes it without inducing any effect on its inner environment. Second generation breather bags with more resistance, better clarity and better sealing properties also contribute to the growth of breather bags market. The advancement of encasing the embryonated chicken eggs (ECE) inoculate with various viruses also present itself a factor in the growth of breather bags market. However, the problem of quicker fouling of water by fish waste or dead fish and transportation of those aquatic animals like betas, aquatic frog and snails which require direct air, hinders the growth of the breather bags market. Moreover, the seeping of bags and spillage while opening the bag also creates a barrier for the breather bags market. The growing trend of transporting marine life owing to less amount of the water required while transporting makes breather bags an affordable solution.
