Thermoform Packaging Market: Introduction
Packaging plays an important role in protecting the damage or contamination from air, moisture, and toxins. Thermoform packaging is one of those packaging which can be used as a protector of the product. Thermoform packaging defines things that are manufactured by heating plastic in a mold to construct a rigid packaging product of a distinct shape. Shaped material can either be a thin gauge or thick dependent on the type of transforming equipment used in the manufacturing process. Furthermore, the demand of the thermoform packaging is attributed to some properties such as lightweight, versatility, secure containment, visibility and posing tamper evidence.
Thermoform Packaging Market: Dynamics
The global thermoform packaging market is driven by the increasing growth of food & beverages industry. Thermoform packaging is used in the food & beverages industry widely not only to maintain freshness but also provide protection during shipping and transportation. In addition to this, the demand for thermoform packaging is also gaining traction in the pharmaceutical industry. Blister pack, a product type of thermoform packaging is commonly used as packaging for pharmaceutical tablets, capsules to deliver barrier protection for shelf life of the product and also a degree of tamper resistance. Moreover, these products are used widely in the physician sample drug products and over the counter (OTC) products. Thermoform packaging protects the shelf life of the products which is expected to bolster further the sales of thermoform packaging, especially for the retail sector. Moreover, the increasing growth of the retail sector is expected to stimulate the demand of thermoform packaging during the forecast period. Furthermore, the growing demand for electronic products is expected to drive the growth of thermoform packaging market. Increasing adoption of thermoform packaging in the consumer goods industries particular for packaging of electronic and semiconductor devices is expected to play a key role in creating demand for thermoform packaging shortly. The thermoform packaging is cheaper as compare with the metal or glass packaging. This is expected to further stimulate the sales of the product during the forecast period. However, avoiding usage of thermoform packaging for heavy products due to its low weight bearing capacity is expected to hamper the growth of thermoform packaging over the forecast period.
