New York, US, July 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Thermoform Packaging Market Overview

According to a Comprehensive Research Report by Market Research Future (MRFR), “Thermoform Packaging Market Information by Material, Type, Application and Region - Forecast till 2027”, the market is estimated to grow at a 5.72% CAGR to reach USD 104,999.8 Million by 2027.

Market Scope:

Thermoform packaging refers to packaging that is heated to the proper temperature, then shaped and cut to meet a variety of packaging specifications. Thermoform packaging employs thermoplastics that can be easily shaped and reshaped in their molten state. It is simpler and less expensive than other plastic molding and forming techniques. In this technique, a thermoplastic sheet is heated until it becomes malleable, then placed on a mold until it cools and hardens into the final product. Thermoforming packaging is applicable in numerous industries, including the food and beverage, electronics, personal care, pharmaceuticals, and automotive sector, due to its lightweight, protective, cost-effective, and reusable characteristics.

Market Drivers:

According to MRFR analysis, the thermoforming industry expands at a rapid rate, is predicted to expand at a rapid rate, and achieves considerable profit during the market forecast period. The increased consumption of processed, packaged, and flavored foods and beverages has increased the demand for thermoforming equipment. This sort of packaging is light, flexible, odorless, and moisture-free. It is more popular than other packaged items. Glass is less favoured than thermoforming for the creation of items. As a result of these qualities, thermoform packaging items are in high demand. The market has assumed a prominent place in the foreseeable future.

The need for thermoform packaging has increased primarily in the food and beverage industry, where it is used to package fresh items to prevent nutrient loss and food spoilage. The ability of thermoform packaging to keep critical nutrients in and avoid exposure to environmental contaminants such as oxygen is anticipated to boost the global thermoform packaging market over the forecast period.

In addition, the environmental advantages of the thermoform market have increased the size of the thermoform packaging market. This style of packaging has a low rate of raw material use, less carbon emission, and less waste creation. Carbon emissions during the manufacturing process are also significantly reduced compared to other packaging types. The resilience of thermoform packaging when exposed to reactive compounds and physical impacts is a major driver for the worldwide thermoform packaging market, as it gives it an edge over other packaging materials such as metals.

Market Limitations:

Nonetheless, the simple availability of a variety of alternative packaging choices is a significant factor restraining the worldwide thermoform packaging industry.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID outbreak caused disruptions in the thermoform packaging manufacturing facilities. COVID caused a disruption in the industry's economy. There was substantial disruption in the economic chain. COVID resulted in the shutdown and lockdown of specific units, disrupting the analysis of the supply chain and the value chain process. A dramatic shift in customer behavior was seen. Both export and import commerce were negatively impacted, contributing to the economic collapse of the nation. The thermoform packaging industry was projected to experience a substantial decline in CAGR market value. The disarray of the retail networks contributed to the country's decline.

Market Segmentation:

By Material

In 2016, the plastic sector held the biggest market share because to its good barrier qualities, cost effectiveness, temperature resistance, and durable packaging. The majority of thermoformed plastic packaging is composed of PVC, PE, PP, and other plastics.

By Heat Seal Coating

In 2016, the solvent-based heat seal coating category held the biggest market share due to its several benefits, including its high bond strength. It may also be treated at a variety of temperatures and has a remarkable resistance to both water and oil. As it creates a strong binding between corrugated and polyethylene skin pack sheets and lowers the impact of adhesion-related issues in thermoform packaging, water-based heat seal coating is projected to expand at the greatest CAGR throughout the projection period.

By Application

In 2016, the food & beverage segment held the biggest market share. The majority of thermoformed items are used to package fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, and fish, as well as ready-to-eat meals and storage goods. The pharmaceutical industry is another important application segment for thermoform packaging.

By Type

Due to the widespread usage of medical-grade blister packs in the pharmaceutical industry, the blister packaging segment contributed the most to the worldwide thermoform packaging market. Blister packaging and skin packaging are anticipated to be the thermoform packaging sectors with the highest growth rate over the projection period.
