Blown films are blend of plastics with polymers which is further transformed into polyolefin plastics, polyethylene etc. by using the blow filming process used in packaging industry. Blown films are made up of single layer and have low film strength. Multilayer blown films as the name suggests are multilayer films of two or more polymers which is produced by coextrusion process. Multilayer blown films possesses properties such as low permeability to oxygen and carbon dioxide, heat sealability, high film strength, good adhesion, printability properties, which makes it ideal for food packaging. Multilayer blown films applied on the surface of packages as a lamination providing additional strength to the packaging.
Global Multilayer Blown films Market: Drivers & Restraints
The growth of global multilayer blown films market is driven by the demand for effective packaging solutions among various industries. Multilayer blown films with its eminent properties such as high film strength and puncture resistance provides additional strength for packaging. Multilayer blown films are widely used among the food & beverage industries, healthcare and electronics industry. Thus, the augmenting demand for multilayer blown films from these industries are anticipated to supplement the growth of global multilayer blown films market. Furthermore, increasing demand for FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) among the consumers is also contributing to the growth of global multilayer blown films market to an extent. Macroeconomic factors such as contribution of flexible packaging to the GDP and rise in disposable income of the middle class population are some factors which are driving the market for global multilayer blown films market. Trend noted in the global multilayer blown films market is the emergence of eleven layer blown films, owing to the demand for effective packaging in the food industry. In the latter years, five to seven layer was enough to satisfy the custom packaging requirements, however, the scenario is changing and customers are asking for multilayer blown films with enhanced properties such as protection against sunlight, effective sealing, preservation of flavor and aroma to name some. Hence, to address the demand of consumers the eleven layer blown films is emerging and various R&D activities are being carried out to make it effective and economic. However, manufacturing process complexity of multilayer blown films as compared to monolayer blown films might hamper the growth of global multilayer blown films market.
