Therefore, these coatings help to enhance the service life of objects and are in high demand from end-user industries. The global plastic coatings market is estimated to be worth USD 9.85 billion by the end of the current forecast period in 2028.


Covid 19 Analysis


Covid 19 had a negative impact on the global plastic coatings market. With lesser demand from major end-user industries, the demand curve bent downwards. There was a recession in the automobile and aerospace industry which are the major demand generators for plastic coatings. Therefore, it led to a rapid decline in the market share of plastic coatings over the acute pandemic period. 


The restrictions on travel and movement of goods meant for curbing the virus spread disrupted the global supply chain. Moreover, a halt in the production process too affected the market leading to partial demand fulfillment. However, the market is showing swift recovery after significant relaxation on precaution norms globally.

Recent Developments


November 2021: Stora Enso has developed UltraThinPE Tec, which minimizes the quantity of plastic coating in foodservice board (FSB) and applications like single-use paper cups, according to the business. The technique, according to Stora Enso, enables for paper cup designs that include less than 5% plastic, which helps package converters, brand owners, and retailers reach their plastics reduction goals. The method is now utilized to make UltraThinPE coatings for Stora Enso's Cupforma paper cup product line. Depending on local restrictions, collecting, and sorting facilities, FSB products with UltraThinPE Tec coatings can be recycled alongside paper or board. When paired with other paper and board packaging, they can also make it easier to recycle FSB in regular recycling mills as one-sided, minimal-plastic coatings.
