Packaging Coating Additives Market Trends




  • Increasing demand for high-performance coatings is driving market growth.




Market CAGR for the past few years is expected to rise during the forecast period due to increased demand for high-performance coatings. As consumer demands high-quality products continue to rise, there is a growing need for packaging coating additives that deliver exceptional performance. Additives that improve coatings' scratch resistance, gloss, and adhesion properties are in high demand. These additives are particularly important for packaging applications that require high durability and protection, such as food and beverage packaging.


Focusing on sustainability has become a key concern for the packaging industry, with more companies adopting sustainable practices to reduce their environmental footprint. Packaging coating additives are no exception to this trend, as manufacturers look for ways to make their products more environmentally friendly. One approach is to use bio-based additives derived from renewable resources such as vegetable oils or starches. These additives have a lower carbon footprint and can be easily biodegraded. Another approach is to use additives that enable thinner coatings, which reduces the amount of material needed and waste generated.


Nanotechnology is increasingly being used in the packaging industry to enhance the properties of packaging materials and coatings. Nanoparticles such as silica, titanium dioxide, and silver are used as additives to improve packaging coatings' barrier properties, UV resistance, and antimicrobial properties. The use of nanotechnology in packaging coating additives is expected to continue growing as manufacturers seek to develop new and innovative solutions that can meet the evolving needs of the industry. Overall, the packaging coating additives market is expected to grow as manufacturers focus on developing sustainable, high-performance coatings. New technologies such as nanotechnology are increasingly adopted to drive the Packaging Coating Additives market revenue.

Aseptic processing was developed in 1927. A processing technique wherein commercially thermally sterilized liquid products (typically food or pharmaceutical) are packaged into previously sterilized containers under sterile conditions to produce shelf-stable products that do not need refrigeration. Aseptic processing involves three primary steps: thermal sterilization of the product, sterilization of the packaging material, and conservation of sterility during packaging. Aseptic Processing, where the liquid products are sterilized outside of a container before sterilizing the container itself, is gaining popularity as it drastically improves the shelf life of liquid products and beverages. Demand for this processing is set to increase year by year.


Biopolymers are natural polymers produced by the cells of living organisms. Like other polymers, biopolymers are monomeric units covalently bonded in chains to form larger molecules. In addition to their many essential roles in living organisms, biopolymers have applications in many fields, including the food industry, manufacturing, packaging, and biomedical engineering. Biopolymer film packaging is used in tetra packs, dry snacks, bakery goods, juice bottles, etc. CAGR is growing significantly in North America, and the rest of the world is also catching up as it is environment-friendly and doesn't alter the content of the food inside. Its market value is expected to surpass by 2025, with India and China leading the growth.
