Barrier Shrink Films Market size will witness significant growth rate from 2018 to 2025. Shrink films are polymeric plastic films on which heat is applied through handheld heat gun (electric or gas), the film shrinks to set firmly around the product to be packed thereby, adapting itself to the individual shape. Barrier shrink films are used for providing transparency to the product along with protection from dust, gases, moisture, and preserve aroma. These films are available in a variety of thicknesses, clarities, strengths and shrink ratios. Barrier shrink films provide excellent printing designs and enhance the appearance & shelf life of the packaged product. They are tamper evident and helps in retaining the freshness of the product to minimize wastage.

Factors such as availability of alternatives such as liquid cartons and recycling & dumping of barrier shrink films results in environmental degradation, which will likely hinder the growth of global barrier shrink films market over the forecast period. However, rising demand for PLA films and increased popularity of quick service restaurants are expected to drive the barrier shrink films market.
The barrier shrink film market has been segmented by product type into flowpacks, vaccum bags, chubs, shrink wraps and others such as form-shrink, etc. The vaccum bag segment is expected to have a larger share owing to properties like reduced atmospheric oxygen, restricting the growth of aerobic bacteria and preventing the evaporation of volatile components to extend the shelf life of foods.
Based on material type the global barrier shrink film market has been segmented into polyethylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polyamide, ethyl vinyl alcohol and others such as polypropylene, etc. Polyethylene is expected to grow at a faster pace because it provides UV protection, impact strength as well as low friction and offer affordability.
In terms of barrier, the market has been segmented into low, medium, high, and ultra-high barriers. Increasing demand from end use industries will propel the demand for high barrier shrink films. It can be further divided into pouches, lids, bags, laminated tubes, etc. These films could be used for applications that require maturation or long shelf life.
Based on end user industries, global barrier shrink film market can be segmented into food & beverages, healthcare, electronics, cosmetics & personal care and others such as paper, textiles, automotive, etc. Rising demand for the product for meat, vegetable, and fruits packaging will significantly impact the global barrier shrink films market for food & beverage use. Positive outlook on food and beverage industry, in economies such Middle East, China, Russia, India, Brazil and Mexico is another factor contributing towards the global barrier shrink film market growth.
