Micro-perforated films are flexible films with micro perforations used for packaging. They offer the opportunity to modify the oxygen transfer rate of packaging according to the packaged product. Gas permeability of micro-perforated films can be calculated by using a static or dynamic system. Most static experimental systems are used for calculating the permeability of micro-perforated films, since the flow of gas through the perforation majorly follows gas diffusion mechanisms. Micro-perforated films with one and three perforations are expected to provide ample O2 and CO2 equilibrium concentrations.

Micro-perforated Films Market: Drivers and Restraints

Flexible films offer a protective function against an extensive range of factors; however, some products need the ability to breathe. Micro-perforation technology offers a solution to the breathability issue of flexible films. These films are penetrated with grids of pin-sized holes, thus increasing the functionality and shelf life of a varied range of grocery, medical, and commercial products. Thus, rise in need for increased shelf life of products in end-use industries such as medical and food is expected to drive the micro-perforated films market during the forecast period. However, restriction on the usage of plastic products for food & beverage applications is likely to restrain the market during the forecast period.

Micro-perforated Films Market: Segmentation

Based on material, the micro-perforated films market can be segmented into:

  • Polypropylene
  • Polyethylene
  • Polyethylene Terephthalate
  • Others

Micro-perforated films are primarily produced from polyethylene and polypropylene. They are also manufactured using materials with high barrier properties, which create improved atmospheric conditions for packaged products. Perforated materials such as the polymers do not allow control or selectivity of gas exchange, while modified atmosphere packaging produced from high barrier materials can be modified considering the respiratory activity of the produce.

Micro-perforated Films Market: Segmentation

Based on product type, the micro-perforated films market can be segmented into:

  • Ready-to-eat Packaging Films
  • Microwaveable Films
  • Bread Bags
  • Agricultural Films
  • Others

Micro-perforated Films Market: Segmentation

In terms of application, the micro-perforated films market can be segregated into

  • Food & Beverages
    • Meat & Fish
    • Fruits & Vegetables
    • Bakery & Confectionery
    • Others
  • Agriculture
  • Others

Micro-perforated films allow air to flow between the external environment and the packaged product. This helps prevent the accumulation of vapor inside the packaging. It also allows the packaged product to remain fresh. The packaged product is also easy to handle and clean, and retains optimum hygiene conditions. Micro-Perforated film reduces moisture loss in applications such as bakery and confectioneries, thus increasing the shelf life of these products.

Micro-perforated Films Market: Region-wise Outlook

Based on geography, the global micro-perforated films market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific, especially China, holds major share of the global micro-perforated films market. The market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to experience high growth due to the rise in need for food owing to the growth in population in the region. China was one of the leading producers and consumers of micro-perforated films in 2017. It is anticipated to dominate the global micro-perforated films market during the forecast period. The micro-perforated films market in North America and Europe is expected to be hampered due to the implementation of stringent government norms on the usage of plastic products, especially in food and pharmaceutical applications.
