Global Interleaving Papers Market Overview
Smooth or fine surface finish not only adds to the aesthetics of a product but also enables the product manufacturer to claim for a higher price and still achieve consumer satisfaction. To make very fine surface finish, high investment on processing machinery is required. Further, this finish can be easily deteriorated by physical shocks experienced during transportation or handling of the product in bulk. Thus, interleaving papers play a crucial role in protecting the surface finish of the products such as glass, aluminum, and plastics by eliminating the direct contact between two finely finished surfaces. The application of interleaving papers has expanded to food items and X-ray films. The global interleaving papers market, also known as thin papers, is projected to grow at a fast pace during the forecast period with the increasing consumer preference for an excellent surface finish of the products, specifically glass and aluminum products.
Global Interleaving Papers Market Dynamics
To attain or sustain a globally leading position among competitors in the glass products industry, products with excellent surface finish are necessary to be delivered to the end-users. Interleaving papers market is majorly driven with the increasing demand for the products with a fine surface finish. The application of interleaving papers has expanded to the food industry. The global food packaging industry was valued at around US$ 450 Bn in 2017, and thus, the food packaging industry is projected to create a massive opportunity for the global interleaving papers market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the interleaving papers are also used as a light barrier for X-ray films and photographic films which are highly sensitive to the light. The production process of interleaving papers also includes chemical treatment of the pulp which generates interleaving papers with neutral pH (that is neither acidic nor basic), which is crucial for preventing the corrosion of metal surfaces. The interleaving papers are generally printed with the brand name of the product manufacturer, and thus provides an additional surface to the product manufacturer for brand promotion and marketing. The global demand for interleaving papers is entirely driven by the end-user industries and not by the end-consumers as the delivery of the final products without any defect is the responsibility of the product manufacturer.
