Thermoform Packaging Market by Material (Plastic, Aluminum, and Paper & Paperboard), Type (Clamshell Packaging, Blister Packaging, Skin Packaging, and Others), Heat Seal Coating (Water-based, Solvent-based, and Hot Melt-Based) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022

Thermoforming Is A Relatively Simple Plastic Manufacturing Process That Is Inexpensive As Compared To Other Plastic Molding And Forming Methods. In This Process, A Thermoplastic Sheet Is Heated Until It Is Pliable, And Then It Is Placed Over A Mold Until The Sheet Is Cooled To Form A Finished Part. The Global Thermoform Packaging Market Is Expected To Register Substantial Growth During The Forecast Period, Attributed To The Increased Demand From The Food & Beverage And Pharmaceuticals Industries.

Thermoform Packaging Has Extensive Applications In Food Packaging, Which Is One Of The Key Factors That Drives The Market Growth. Furthermore, Increased Demand For Convenient And Easy-To-Use Packaging Has Resulted In The Increased Requirements For Barrier Properties To Keep The Food Fresh And Enhance Its Shelf Life.

Packaging Manufacturers Are Increasingly Using Thermoform Packaging For Food Products As It Eliminates Wastage Of Material, And The Packages Are Relatively Easier To Customize, Thus Lowering The Amount Of Raw Material Used By Almost 50%. Moreover, Thermoform Packaging Reduces Packaging Costs For Food Products, Leading To Their Augmented Adoption.

An Ongoing Trend In The Global Thermoform Packaging Market Gaining Traction Is The High Demand For Lightweight Packaging Products. A Number Of Manufacturers Are Considering The Use Of Lightweight Packaging Products To Address The Cost-Related Concerns Across The Value Chain. Another Major Trend Observed Is The Gradual Shift Of Manufacturers Towards Biodegradable, Bio-Derived, And Recyclable Polymers As An Alternative To Traditional Petroleum-Based Polymers.
