Industrial thermoform packaging refers to a light weight, strong, and heavy gauge that stores products hundred times of its own weight. The materials are produced by thermoforming technique. There are three sorts of packaging material; mechanical, vacuum, and pressure. The key benefits are included light weight, savvy, solid, and recyclable, which make them environment-friendly, and provide stiff support, which is favored by several brand owners which in turn has fuelled up the product sales.
According to study, “Global Industrial Thermoform Packaging Market Status (2015-2019) and Forecast (2020-2024) by Region, Product Type & End-Use” the key companies operating in the global industrial thermoform packaging market are Anchor Packaging, Sonoco Products Company, Bemis Company, Inc., E.I. Du Pont Nemours and Company, Amcor Limited, Westrock Company, Placon Corporation, DS Smith PLC, Display Pack Inc., Pactiv LLC.
Based on type, industrial thermoform packaging market is segmented into blister skin, clamshell and windowed. Blister packing segment has the maximum market share owing to huge application in pharmaceutical industry as it prevents the product contagion and exposure from the external environment. Based on heat seal coating, market is segmented into heat seal coating, water based coating, hot-melt based coating and solvent based coating. Solvent-based coating segment dominates the market due to strong bond strength & resistance to water or grease and can be processed at various temperatures. Based on raw material, market is segmented into aluminum, paper, plastic, and paperboard. The plastic segment includes PP (Polypropylene), HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene), PC (Polycarbonate), ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), PVC (Polyvinly Chloride), PS (Polystyrene), Acrylic PMMA (Polymethyl Methacrylate), TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) and PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate). PET segment is expected to exhibit higher growth rate as a result of their wide application in bottles manufacturing during the forecast period. In addition, based on end-use, market is segmented into food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, electronics, home & personal care, and components packaging. Food & beverage sector holds major share in market on account of rise in use in dairy, packaging meat, confectionery and food services.
