Moisture Control Agents for Packaging Market – An Overview

Controlling the moisture level in packaged materials is a challenge which makes the use of moisture control agents inevitable in the packaging market. There is a need to maintain the moisture levels inside the package because the water vapors that infiltrate through the packaging material can hinder the product preservation and its performance. They don’t require an energy source and can be put directly into the product package. A few examples of moisture control agents are silica gel, bauxite, calcium sulfate, etc. Packaging engineers have been choosing the moisture control agents by application-testing more commonly known as the ‘trial and error method.’ The moisture control agents are used in a wide variety of industries when shipping their product because they do not affect the integrity of the product but do absorb the water vapor in the air, reducing the humidity — various substances used like cotton and paper as packaging material for the moisture control agents. One of the most widely used moisture absorbing agents is silica gels because of their unique properties of moisture absorption, they are capable of eliminating odor problems as well. Moisture control agents are present in almost all products except moist and liquid ones. The global market for moisture control agents for packaging is expected to grow substantially during the forecast period.
