Comprehensive analysis of barrier materials

A recently published report provides volumetric and revenue forecasts for barrier materials through 2016.

Relative amounts of GHG emissions during film production.
Relative amounts of GHG emissions during film production.

Produced by Allied Development Corp., the study examines the full range of commercially proven technologies from the perspectives of their functional ability to meet consumer needs, their worldwide market potential, economic profiles, and environmental impact. The 420-page study describes producer strategies for extending the life cycles of these established products, as well as the potential of several emerging technologies (e.g. ultra-high barrier metallized film) to improve or supplant them.

In-depth market, economic, and environmental analyses (depicted in more than 100 figures and tables) are presented for barrier materials that provide oxygen transmission rates from zero to 77.5 cc/meter squared/day and/or moisture vapor transmission rates from zero to 1.5 gm/meter squared/day. Shown here is a graphic illustration depicting the relative amounts of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that occur during the production of certain barrier films.

The study profiles 34 established and upcoming producers of barrier materials, serving the six major geographic markets for flexible packaging.
