Germ-killing Films Storming Lamination Films Market amid COVID-19 Outbreak

The antimicrobial laminating film is becoming a rage in the packaging industry amid the coronavirus pandemic. Taghleef Industries (Ti), one of the largest manufacturers of BoPP, CPP, and BoPLA films in the world, is gaining recognition for its Derprosa Antimicrobial laminating film, which has the potential to be effective against coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Competitor companies in the lamination films market are taking cues from such innovations to increase testing of potential laminating film materials.

Manufacturers in the lamination films market are competing to increase the availability of protective laminated films to stave off viruses, bacteria, and germs. On the other hand, the pandemic has led to business loss for digital printers and advertising technology companies, since events and trade fairs were practically banned or have been rescheduled. Manufacturers are seen diversifying their production and business activities in essential applications such as food & beverage (F&B), pharmaceuticals, and fertilizers, among others, to sustain income sources.

While studying the flexible packaging market before the COVID-19 pandemic, it was found that there was an extensive and consistent demand for the flexible packaging compared to the rigid packaging in terms of product packaging owing to ease & convenience in handling. Moreover, other factors such as cost-effectiveness and low energy requirements while manufacturing flexible packaging films are boosting the demand for flexible packaging.

In addition, majority of the manufacturers is consistently carrying out R&D for innovative solutions in the lamination films market in terms of recyclability and reusability.
