Barrier Materials for Rigid Packaging - 2017 to 2021
Barrier Materials for Rigid Packaging 2017 to 2021 focuses on seven categories of raw materials that provide oxygen transmission rates from zero to 77.5 cc/m2/day (5 cc/100in2/day). This is the same target used for our "Barrier Materials for Flexible Packaging" companion study. The study examines a comprehensive range of technologies, each with its optimal applications, market potential, economic profile, and environmental impact for barrier materials that are used in the production of rigid packaging.
The Market Analysis section examines key drivers and trends affecting the entire industry and individual raw materials, and it separately analyzes the potential and limitations of each barrier material used in the production of rigid packaging. For each barrier material, it considers competing barrier materials and package types and the industry's requirements for material and package processing, performance, economics, and environmental impact. In addition, the Market Analysis presents both historical and projected consumption for each material through 2021.
