Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The increase in consumer preference for eco-friendly products is an important trend being witnessed in the packaging coatings market in APAC. The manufacturers of packaging coatings, which include beverage packaging and food packaging, are developing new and eco-friendly coatings to comply with the regulations and to meet the increasing demand for sustainable products that do not harm the ecosystem. This in turn is expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. The VTT technical research center has developed technology for a recyclable and eco-friendly packaging coatings solution. These coatings help in the manufacture of thin, lightweight, fully recyclable, and air-tight packaging materials. They use an atomic layer deposition (ALD) method, which is helpful in food and pharmaceutical packaging as they have good gas permeation resistance. Also, these recyclable coatings do not use barrier materials such as aluminum film, thereby using less raw materials as compared to the traditional packaging coatings materials.”
According to the report, the growth of the global packaging industry is a major driver for the growth of the packaging coatings market in APAC. The growth will be characterized by the growing demand for packaging coatings from the packaging industry because of the increased demand for plastic packaging from the food and beverage industry.
Further, the report states that manufacturers are under constant pressure to find ways to reduce prices. In addition, suppliers of raw materials determine the prices of raw materials, which in turn has a negative impact on the growth of the packaging market. Thereby, increasing the price of packaging coatings.
