Metallized Film Market Segment Analysis –By Material Type

Low density polyethylene (LDPE) segment held the largest share in the metallized film market in 2020 and is expected to continue their dominance over the forecast period 2021-2026. Increasing demand for polymer such as low density polyethylene (LDPE), owing to its alluring properties such as high strength, toughness, resistance to corrosion, resilience, lack of conductivity (heat and electrical), transparency, color, processing, and low cost in several applications would further drive the market growth. Rising demand for polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) for the production of metallized films for use in applications such as labeling, lamination, insulation, decoration, packaging, and others, would drive the market growth over the forecast period. Although the usage of polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) materials for the production of metallized films is almost equal, polypropylene is expected to lead the market growth due to the rise in the number of R&D centers and production units using polypropylene.

Metallized Film Market Segment Analysis –By Application

Packaging segment has dominated the market for metallized film market in 2020, and is growing at a CAGR of 5.9% during 2021-2026. Metallized films are used in the packaging of frozen sweets, frozen food, electrical and electronic devices, medical equipment, food, drinks, textiles, coffee, vegetables and many others in order to preserve superior quality. In order to secure food products when packed, metalized film materials produce a protective layer of insulation. Furthermore, in the form of pouches, sacks, bag-in-box containers, wraps and many other ways that suit the packaging of the desired object, metalized film packages are used. Moreover owing to the superior properties such as corrosion resistant, light weight, and others, packaging industries often use aluminium above all other metals. Thus, due to the advantages of metalized film packaging compared to conventional packing materials the demand for metalized film is expected to rise rapidly during the forecast period.

Metallized Film Market Segment Analysis –By End-use Industry

Food and Beverage segment held the largest share in the metallized film market in 2020. Owing to the cost effective packaging solutions the demand for metallized film in the food and beverage sectors is anticipated to rise over the forecast period. Rising usage of low density polyethylene (LDPE) films, polystyrene films, and polycarbonates films owing to its excellent transparency, high thermoform ability, and superb printability, in food and beverage is further estimated to drive the growth of the market. Increasing usage of metallic film in beer and soft drink cans, food cans, open trays, caps and closures, and others in the food and beverage industry for packaging applications would further drive the growth of the market.

Metallized Film Market Segment Analysis - Geography

Europe dominated the metallized film market share with more than 45.4% in the year 2020. In all industries, including countries such as Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy and others, exports from the European Union are increasing. The EU has a total trade of US$ 807 billion, with US$ 319 billion in exports from the United States and US$ 448 billion in imports in 2018, establishing a major market for the packaging industry. Bollore Inc (France), Clifton Packaging Company, Flex Films, Polinas and Jindal Films are some of the main producers of metal films in this region. Moreover, the rising demand for packaging in several end use industries would further drive the growth of the industry over the forecast period. The above factors, coupled with government support, are anticipated to lead towards the growing demand for metallized films in the projected time period.

Metallized Film Market Drivers

The increasing demand in the food & beverage packaging industry for flexible packaging creates opportunities for the metallized film market. 

Metallized Film Market Challenges

Product Inspection Problems

Rising product inspection problems in metallized films is estimated to hinder the growth of the market. Metal detectors are not able to inspect packaging with a metalized film layer. Because the detection system cannot tell whether the metal it detects is a foreign contaminant or packaging material, metal detectors cannot be used to inspect items for any potential food safety issues. Thus, this is something that should be considered by the food producers to keep in mind when choosing the right inspection solution. Moreover, the metallized films are not the most common foreign items in many different food industries. With the rising product inspection problems faced by the metallized film in several packaging solutions the market is anticipated to decline over the forecast period.

Metallized Film Market Landscape

Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the metallized film market. Major players in the metallized film market are Cosmo Films Ltd., Sierra Coating Technologies LLC, Avery Dennison Corp., Accrued Plastic Ltd., Innovia Films Ltd., Invico S.A., Jindal Poly Films Limited, Taghleef Industries Group, Dunmore Corporation, Flex-Film International BV, and among others.

Acquisition/Product Launches:

  • In January 2019, Taghleef Industries (Ti) acquired the Biofilm Company, a leading manufacturer of metallized BOPP films for labels, flexible packaging, and industrial applications, to expand its presence in Latin America.
