Global Antimicrobial Packaging Market 2016-2020

About Antimicrobial Packaging

Antimicrobial packaging is an active technology packaging solution. Antimicrobial agents are active barrier agents that are added to packaging materials for making antimicrobial packaging materials. Antimicrobial packaging materials are used to prevent the penetration of small atmospheric and molecular gases, such as carbon dioxide, oxygen, volatile flavor nitrogen compounds, water vapor, and aromatic compounds into the package.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Antimicrobial Packaging Market

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the antimicrobial packaging: LINPAC, Mondi, PolyOne, and BioCote.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Agion Technologies, Covestro, BASF, DOW Chemical, Dunmore Corporation, Microban International, and Sealed Air.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The global advanced packaging market, which includes the antimicrobial packaging market, is witnessing increased focus on the development of bio-nanocomposite based products. Bio-nanocomposites are composed of bio-based polymers and a nano-scale filler material. They are more eco-friendly and biodegradable than petroleum-based nanocomposites.”

According to the report, in many regions, more than 59% of the food is wasted due to spoilage. Barrier packaging materials such as antimicrobial packaging materials are highly flexible, transparent, and prevent the passage of gases, liquids, and radiation. These materials are used in the form of thin films and sheets for food packaging. They increase the shelf life of packaged foods by preventing the passage of atmospheric air.

Further, the report states that The R&D costs for advanced packaging solutions such as antimicrobial packaging solutions are high. Also, testing of innovative materials for application in packaging involves elaborate procedures and is time-consuming and expensive. In addition, the price of certain raw materials used for manufacturing advanced packaging products is high. The use of these raw materials leads to higher procurement costs for vendors. Obtaining regulatory approvals is also costly.
