Among the key driving forces behind the market’s growth are the burgeoning processed food industry and the rising demand for PVDC-coated films in food packaging applications. However, the presence of substitutes is expected to impede the market’s expansion during the forecast period.

Promising opportunities for market growth lie in the development of new technologies for recycling film structures incorporating PVDC. These innovations hold the potential for lucrative prospects within the market.

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to take the lead in the global market, with significant consumption originating from China, Japan, and India, reflecting the region’s dominance in this sector.

PVDC-coated films are obtained by applying a thin layer of PVDC onto base films such as OPP (Oriented Polypropylene). These films serve as efficient packaging materials, providing moisture-proofing and gas-barrier properties, in addition to the inherent properties of the base film. Notably, the low dependence of the oxygen barrier property on humidity, coupled with excellent moisture-barrier and aroma-retaining properties, further enhances their market concentration, especially in the food industry.

Market Segmentation

The market is segmented based on various factors, including film substrate type, application, and geography.

Segmentation by Film Substrate Type
Bi-axially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP)
Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
Other Film Substrate Types

Segmentation by Application
Food Packaging
Pharmaceutical Blister Packaging

Segmentation by Geography
North America – United States, Canada, Mexico
Europe – United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Rest of Europe
Asia-Pacific – China, Japan, India, South Korea, and Rest of Asia-Pacific
Latin America – Brazil, Argentina, and Rest of Latin America
Middle East and Africa – Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Rest of Middle East and Africa

The bi-axially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films have emerged as the dominant player, driven by their widespread adoption in the snacks, confectionery, and meat packaging industries. The growing blister packaging industry presents promising opportunities for the BOPP films in the foreseeable future. These films are produced by casting polypropylene into film and subsequently stretching it using specialized machines. PVDC-coated BOPP films find application in overwrapping, horizontal (HFFS), and vertical (VFFS) packaging machines, where their acrylic and PVDC coatings serve special purposes, notably exhibiting an increased oxygen barrier.

Within the application segment, the food packaging industry holds the largest share. The escalating usage of BOPP films in meat packaging and their rising adoption in the dairy industry are set to drive the market further. Food packaging, with its superior properties of PVDC-coated films, such as high chemical resistance, inertness, and low odor, dominates the packaging sector. The optically clear and glossy PVDC-coated films possess oxygen and moisture barrier properties comparable to metalized films. Additionally, they demonstrate high resistance to chemicals, including grease and oil.

PVDC-coated films are highly valued for their low stretch, excellent bond strength, and low water absorption, making them ideal for food wrapping applications. The demand for PVDC-coated films is projected to increase owing to the growing food packaging sector. As per the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), India’s consumption value of packaged organic food and beverages reached 96 million US dollars in 2021, with projections estimating it to rise to 108 million dollars in 2022.

The food packaging industry plays a vital role in preserving and transporting food items without compromising taste or quality. It safeguards contents from toxins and moisture, prevents spillage and tampering, and helps retain their shape and quality. The global meat production reached around 360 million metric tons in 2022, with an expected expansion to 377 million tons by 2031 to meet rising demand, further bolstering the demand for PVDC-coated films.

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to lead the PVDC-coated films market during the forecast period, driven by high demand from countries like China, India, and Japan. China’s packaging industry is projected to experience significant growth, with an expected CNY 2 trillion (USD 290 billion) market by 2025. India’s packaging sector, the fifth-largest in its economy, is predicted to reach USD 204.81 billion by 2025, contributing to the rise in demand for PVDC-coated films. Japan’s thriving e-commerce market is also expected to boost the demand for these films, with revenue projected to reach USD 232.20 billion by 2023 and an annual growth rate of 11.23% between 2023 and 2027.
