  • As governments and brands increasingly look for alternatives to plastic packaging and food service formats, these coating materials will assume a critical role. Smithers Pira forecasts a growth rate of 5.0% across the five years to 2024, pushing market value to almost $11.0 billion and worldwide consumption to just under 4 million tonnes.
  • Water-based chemistries is set to accelerate. The highest growth will be seen in high-barrier polymer coating chemistries – such as EVOH and PVOH. Bio-polymer coating platforms will also see increased commercialisation replacing petroleum-based solutions.

What methodology is used?

This report is based on a new and in-depth primary research targeting key figures and organisations within the converting chain for coated paper and board packaging and food-service formats. Feedback from discussions with end users, raw material suppliers, coating suppliers, converters, and papermakers, was combined with an extensive survey of existing market data for this segment.

This was then combined with Smithers Pira’s existing database of statistics and trends in the global paper and packaging industry to produce an authoritative forecast for current and future growth by value and volume.

In addition to interviews the following resources were employed in the bespoke forecasting model used by Smithers Pira:

  • Company websites and annual reports
  • Conference briefings and presentations
  • Confidential conversations with key individuals in related sectors
  • Market reports
  • Official government statistics, including Eurostat, and packaging trade organisation data

What will you discover?

  • The current and future demand for functional and barrier coatings across 15 major paper and board end-use in packaging and food-service segments 
  • Quantitative analysis of how shifting consumer patterns, safety regulations, and market demand will impact 7 geographic regions and 16 key national packaging makers
  • Exclusive data on the accelerating transition from solvent to water-borne application chemistries and key sector challenges
  • Qualitative insight of how shifting brand owner initiatives will direct demand for the development and commercialisation of new barrier coating technologies – including micro-fibrillated cellulose and biopolymer blends.
