Barrier Materials Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2028

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Barrier materials are plastic coatings or multilayer combinations intended to minimize the diffusion of water and gas into and out of a flexible or rigid package. The EVOH, PVDC, PEN, PP, and PE are some of the examples of the barrier materials. These materials are effective against nitrogen, water vapors, oxygen, carbon dioxide, light and aroma compounds, and preserve the quality of the packaged products. Also, these materials are transparent and flexible and can be used in packaging applications in industries such as the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industry. The market for barrier materials is on the rise as they have been widely adopted in numerous applications on account of their unique properties such as thermal stability, long shelf life, and high-performance levels. Moreover, barrier materials finds its applications in individual moisture barrier packing, air barrier packing, and vapor barrier packing applications. Thus increased adoption of barrier materials in applications such as food ingredients, dried food, resins, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, automotive coatings, pigments and animal feed is further improving the market growth at rapid pace.

A surge in the demand for packaged food products increases the demand for barrier materials for food packaging applications. Food is an integral part of daily life. Sustainability, counterfeit protection, efficiency, convenience, traceability, and flexibility are some of the main parameters associated with packaging solutions. For consumers, sustainable and easy-to-use packaging is becoming a priority now than ever before. Thus, factors such as growing demand of the consumer for packaged food owing to changing eating habits and improving lifestyle, high disposable income of the consumers, increasing population, demand for high quality and natural food with increased shelf life are propelling the growth of the market. Moreover, factors such as a surge in the demand for blister packaging and drug delivery systems, growing technological advancements, adoption of new regulatory standards and increased health awareness, and increasing demand for primary pharmaceutical packaging are again impelling the growth of the market.




Covid19, drastically affects the world supply chain and industrial sector growth. At the initial stages of the pandemic, the world experienced, ‘supply shocks’. China who plays a major role in the world’s supply chain was severely affected. There were disruptions to the availability of goods supplied from China. Supply of both finished and unfinished goods reduced. Day by day as the situation worsened, quarantines, social distance practices were imposed and nations begun instituting lockdowns. Following this the supply chains experienced demand shocks. The shutdown of economic activities affected all the sectors. Manufacturing and mining industry’s sluggish growth in turn affected the barrier materials market.




The global barrier materials market is expected to grow at a CAGR during the forecast period. The rising demand for sustainable packaging solutions and the increasing focus on reducing food waste are major drivers of market growth. Additionally, the growth of e-commerce and the need for safe and secure packaging solutions for online purchases are expected to drive the demand for barrier materials.


New innovations in barrier material technology are also driving market growth. For example, the development of high-barrier bio-based materials and the use of nanotechnology to improve barrier performance are creating new opportunities for manufacturers. The use of barrier coatings and films made from recycled materials is also gaining popularity as a sustainable packaging solution.




Despite the growth prospects, the barrier materials market faces some challenges. One of the primary concerns is the high cost of raw materials and manufacturing processes, which can increase the overall cost of packaging solutions. Additionally, the lack of standardization in barrier material testing and performance evaluation can create confusion for consumers and hinder market growth.
