Infographic: outlook for mono vs multi-layer plastic packaging

Multi-layer composite packaging is difficult to recycle because of the need to separate the different film layers. Mono-material designs are much easier to recycle efficiently as all layers are made of the same type of plastic. Mono-material packaging must overcome key technical challenges – improved barrier protection and better heat sealing – for these materials to fully realise their market potential. The further development of mono-material plastic packaging film applications depends crucially upon the packaging industry successfully overcoming these limitations.

Smithers’ new infographic explores the outlook for multi-layer composite packaging and mono-material designs, including:

•    Key industry trends and their impact on plastic packaging 
•    Market share for plastic packaging materials
•    Geographic markets.
