The thin films of Plastic mainly Polypropylene (PP) and metal which is thin sheet of aluminum are combined to obtain metallized Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene film. Such type of metallized polymer films are suitable for high barrier protection against moisture and number of application in electronics industry. The metallized BOPP films are also mainly used in flexible packaging, labelling and lamination of finished goods, food products and variety of other commodities. The manufacturers of consumable items and packaging players are focusing on increasing the shelf lives of the consumer eatable products, adds to the worldwide market popularity of metallized BOPP films. Globally the manufacturers are increasing their production capacities to meet the rising demands of modern day consumers for metallized polymer films which are resulting in expansion of the global metallized BOPP films market in all parts of the world.
Growth of food, packaged foods and fresh foods has recorded a meteoric rise in the recent decade, and flexible packaging being major application of metallized BOPP films has witnessed a positive growth in production as well as consumption of these films. High demand of electronics and electrical products has generated huge demands for metallized BOPP films across major electronics industry players and various insulation applications has indicated towards the future expansion for global metallized BOPP films market. The usage of metallized BOPP films proves to be a cost effective packaging option for major end user industries, along with that the strength and rigidity offered by these films makes it suitable for wrapping and decoration purposes, thus eventually stimulating the global demand for metallized polymer films.
Usage of metallized BOPP has very poor results when printing is done on its surface, because of low surface energy of such films, which hampers the potential market demand for metallized BOPP films in the packaging and related end uses across the globe. The metallized BOPP films are not suitable for heat seal applications, for heat sealing such type of films additional costs of resin glue is to be incurred by the end user and this has a negative effect over metallized BOPP films market in the long run.
The increasing environmental constraints by the usage of non-bio degradable materials which has a harmful effect over the ecosystem, encourages the usage of metallized BOPP films over the plastic films as these films are recyclable, by producing these films manufacturers can market themselves as sustainable practitioners.
Segmentation based on Thickness:-
Segmentation based on End-Use:-
Strict government laws banning usage of single use plastics for manufacturing any type of packaging solutions and growing market popularity of environment friendly packaging solutions, encourages packaging manufacturers to produce and market sustainable flexible packaging solutions such as metallized BOPP films in the country. Food safety laws in the country demanding the packaging solutions to be of food grade and should not have any contaminations when consumables comes in direct contact with food, making the U.K. an important market for metallized BOPP films which are clinically tested for packaging of eatable items.
Growth witnessed by packaging industry in the country and increased consumption of metallized polymer films by the end user industries, along with increased profit margins has forced packaging manufacturers in India to speed up the production of metallized BOPP films. Eventually, over the forecast period due to projected growth in demand the metallized BOPP films market is likely to expand in India.
