Global Skin Packaging Market: General Overview
Skin packaging is a type of paperboard packing, where the product is placed between a piece of paperboard and thin sheet of plastic. The printed paperboard commonly consists of heat-sealing coating. The plastic that is mostly used is LDPE, PVC, etc. It is one of the rapidly growing segments of the packaging industry. Skin packaging is widely used in institutional and consumer products and industrial applications to market, protect, and distribute a wide variety of products. Demand for skin packaging has increased in the past few years, led by various innovations and changing trends in the packaging industry. The fastest-growing product type is non-carded skin packaging. Plastic film is anticipated to be the fastest-growing material segment of the skin packaging market.
Skin packaging is extensively used in food, consumer goods, and industrial goods. The utility of skin packaging arises from properties of sealing and strength. Skin packaging accounts for major share of the food sector in the past decade. Skin packaging is used in the packaging of foods, fresh produces, electronic products, electrical components, tools, and spare parts. The skin packaging value chain comprises raw material suppliers, manufacturers, distribution and supply channels, and applications.
