Analysts’ Viewpoint

The moisture barrier bags market is largely fragmented with regional and local players accounting to more than 90% of the global market share. This creates opportunities for manufacturers to innovate in packaging solutions for pharmaceutical and medical products. Bags are gaining popularity in the F&B industry and are bolstering credibility credentials of manufacturers, since these bags offer lucrative opportunities for branding and visibility in retail stores.

However, limitations in compostable food packaging pose as a challenge for manufacturers. Hence, companies should develop new material blends to align with existing food industry requirements. For instance, BASF - a leading European chemicals company, blended ‘ecoflex’ with polylactic acid to develop multiple grades of BASF’s ‘ecovio’ for use in thermoforming and injection molding applications.
