    Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The implementation of stringent environmental regulations by various regulatory bodies and the growing use of bio-based adhesives in various industries is expected to propel demand for eco-friendly or green flexible packaging adhesives. Water-based adhesives are environment-friendly, non-flammable, and easy to clean, and have high solid content. Vendors find the high solid content of these adhesives advantageous in terms of performance and cost, because it allows for more coverage per volume during application. This enables manufacturers to reduce product inventory, transportation costs, and cost per part. Solvent-based products, on the other hand, contain harmful chemicals and VOCs and have low solid content.”
    According to the report, the flexible packaging market in China is poised for healthy growth in terms of volume and demand during the forecast period. Rising household income in China and the growing demand for packaged foods and beverages fuel demand in this market. Huge volume growth is expected from the meat, fish, poultry, pet food, and snacks sectors as these are evolving fast in terms of use of innovative flexible packaging products. Demand for convenient flexible packaging is on the rise as people look for easy-to-open, lightweight, and high-quality flexible packaging materials. These products use laminated films that are bonded using special adhesives. Therefore, robust growth in the flexible packaging market will result in increased demand for flexible packaging adhesives in the country.
    Further, the report states that one of the challenges hindering the growth of the market is the price volatility of feedstock.
