VCI (Volatile corrosion inhibitor) paper is a natural kraft paper coated with volatile chemicals either on one or both sides, VCI paper is applicable in packaging for protecting metallic products from rust and corrosion. With growth in the primary packaging industry, the demand for packaging materials for metallic parts and components is also growing simultaneously, fuelling the growth of VCI paper market. Rust and corrosion are major barriers in the transportation of metallic components in some major fields including aeronautics and military where the protection of these parts are of paramount importance. VCI paper being a new chemical solution helps solve this complex problem of protecting metallic components during transportation, thereby increasing the VCI paper market globally. The new formulations available in the market such as the polyethylene coated VCI papers provide even better humidity resistance and are also creating an upsurge in the market demand.
VCI Paper Market- Market Dynamics:
Anti-corrosive nature of VCI paper is the major driver for the VCI paper market which facilitates effective protection during transportation of metals. Another factor fueling the VCI paper market is the property of the paper which increases the life-cycle of products without interfering with their electrical or mechanical surface properties. VCI paper is environment friendly and quite economic in nature thus acting as another promoting factor for the VCI paper market. Another factor propelling the VCI paper market is the recyclable characteristics of the paper. VCI paper protects both ferrous and non-ferrous materials including steal, cast iron, aluminum, copper, zinc, nickel and chrome. Another factor aiding in the growth of VCI paper market is the easy and convenience of using VCI paper. The flexibility of VCI paper aids in wrapping of metallic parts and components easily without any usage of packaging tapes hence making the packaging process economic and more productive. However, the major barrier to the VCI paper market is its compatibility with smaller parts and components. Moreover, the hindrance during visual inspection of machines restrains the growth of VCI paper market.
