Packaging coatings are special coatings used on the interiors and exteriors of packages for long-term preservation of content inside and safe storage, transportation, or simple enhancement of the package aesthetics. It is an area that requires high technology as the functionality for long-term storing of contents, especially inside food cans, is very important for customer health. According to the publisher, the global packaging coatings market is expected to witness growth at a significant rate during the forecast period. The market for packaging coatings was found to be driven by the gradual and consistent growth in the global packaging industry and increasing production of PET bottles. However, the market growth is expected to be hindered by the presence of strict regulations on the usage and production of packaging coatings for various applications.

Epoxy, acrylic, phenolic, amino, vinyl, polyurethane, and polyester are some of the resins used as packaging coatings. Many FMCG products get their value from the packaging industry. The demand for packaging coatings, especially acrylic resins, contributes significantly to the growth of the packaging coatings market for their desirable properties. The lifestyle change positively influences the consumption of packaged food items, consequently expanding the global packaging coatings market. Eco-friendly coatings are further expected to drive the global packaging coatings market. Apart from the food industry, other industries like personal care, healthcare, and chemical also consume packaging coatings for the functional as well as aesthetic aspects these coatings possess. Flexible packaging is a growing sector that uses packaging coatings in the forecast period.

In recent years, the global packaging industry has witnessed steady growth owing to the technological innovations and changes in the consumers’ behavior towards the overall aesthetics and protection of the packaged goods. The major disruptions were observed in the Asia-Pacific region compared to other regions. The growth in the economies in the region, especially China and India, has driven the growth in demand for packaging. All the end-user industries that utilize packaging and packaging coatings are well-settled in the region, giving scope for continuous demand. In 2019, the global packaging industry stood at USD 917 billion. In 2020, the packaging industry witnesses around 10% growth owing to the greater demand for plastic packaging in healthcare and pharmaceutical industries due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In order to tackle the ban on single-use plastics and various regulations, the industry has gradually moved towards more innovative and eco-friendly packaging solutions. The major segment within the global packaging industry is paper and board, which accounts for about 34% of the market. Rigid and flexible plastic accounts for about 17% and 22%, respectively. Metal owns a share of 11%, and glass occupies about 6%.

The global packaging industry is anticipated to reach USD 1 trillion by the end of 2024. Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest market in terms of geography and accounts for about 40% of the global packaging consumption. This is followed by North America and Western Europe with shares of about 22% and 20% respectively. The packaging industry is being benefitted from the rising incomes, growth in population, rising urbanization, and the growth in the retail infrastructure in the developing countries in regions such as Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe, among others. Globally, North America, Western Europe are anticipated to witness sluggish growth in the packaging industry owing to relatively high maturity compared to other regions. Asia-Pacific and MEA (Middle East & Africa) are likely to witness significant investments and revenue generation in the packaging industry. This ongoing growth is driving the growth in the consumption of packaging materials that comes with packaging coatings. This trend is likely to propel the demand for packaging coatings during the forecast period.

Battelle and Mondelez International have co-developed an innovative new technology for reclosable packaging known as a low-tack adhesive (LTA) that offers better usability for consumers and provides a cost-competitive innovation for packaging manufacturers. Both the companies completed a seven-year process of analysis, formulation, and testing of the product to perfect the synthetic blend that makes LTA effective and compatible with a vast array of manufacturing processes. Unlike conventional pressure-sensitive adhesives, LTA is not tacky or messy. It does not collect crumbs, dust, or other product pieces that render traditional adhesives ineffective. LTA is also less expensive and easier to manufacture than other reclosable packaging solutions, such as zippers.

The global Packaging Coatings market is segmented on the basis of Resin and Application. The Application segment is further segmented as Aerosol and Tubes, Beverage Cans, Caps and Closures, Food Cans, Industrial and Specialty Packaging, and Others. In terms of resin, epoxy type dominates the global packaging coatings market. However, due to its proven toxic nature, it is being replaced by alternatives.

Beverage cans are typically coated with organic layers that prevent the contact of beverage with can and also avoid chemical reaction between can’s metal and the beverage. In recent times, epoxy-based coatings were the preferred type among can beverage manufacturers. However, due to its toxic nature, it has been replaced by alternative resin-based coatings. Different resins that can be employed to coat can beverages include oleoresins, vinyl, phenolic, acrylic, polyester, and polyolefins, among others. The global demand for beverages can stand around 350 billion units in 2019. The demand for these cans is significant in both developed and emerging markets. The global beverage can demand has been witnessing an average growth of 3% in recent years. The market for beverage cans is being driven majorly by Southeast Asia and Brazil. During 2019, there was also a noticeable growth in demand for beverage cans in a mature market like North America. Currently, North America is the largest market for beverage cans, with more than 97 billion units shipped in 2019.

The growth in the market for beverage cans is being driven by evolving lifestyles. The change in lifestyles is altering the places and the ways in which people enjoy their drinks and making convenient packaging a mandatory feature. Consumers are prioritizing artisan aesthetics and health benefits while also aligning with brands. Apart from the regular drinks that comes in packaged cans such as carbonated soft drinks and premium beer, niche categories such as flavored waters, flavored malt beverages, craft beer, and adult carbonated beverages are also being launched in packaged can forms. This is surging the demand for beverage cans globally. Can is the preferred format for new launches in North America. Around 70% of the new launches are being launched in cans’ forms. Due to this, beverage cans continue to gain preference among brand owners and consumers. The U.S. and Canadian beverage can market witnessed a recent market growth due to the introduction of new beverage products in cans compared to other formats. The recyclability of the beverage cans is also another factor that is driving the demand across the globe. Major players in the global beverage cans market include Ball Corporation, Crown Holdings, and Ardagh Group, among others.

Based on geography, the global Packaging Coatings Market is segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific was found to be the most dominating region in the global packaging coatings market. Growing economies as that of the Indian and Chinese economies are the biggest factors in keeping Asia-Pacific ahead of other regions. Appeal for flexible and decorative packaging has been the popular reason for the packaging coatings consumption here. The rapid growth of e-commerce and packaged food consumption also helps the regional packaging coatings market hold the first position.
