Materials for Packaging - High-Tech Materials TOE

Share this:
Published: 2 Dec 2016

Packaging materials are widely used for protecting, preserving, transporting, and distributing products safely. Paper-based packaging materials are most widely used across most industries due to their recyclable nature and low-cost manufacturing, while rigid packaging materials (which include glass and plastics) are steadily gaining traction in the industry. Packaging consumers generate a high demand for sustainable, low cost, direct food-contact safe and compact packaging materials, creating a need for constant innovation in the packaging materials market to meet the evolving trends. The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Packaging, edible, sustainable film, paper packaging, protective packaging, edible packaging
