Trends in Coatings for Packaging Applications

Share this:
Published: 11 Aug 2017

Increasing requirements among consumers from various industries such as F&B, pharmaceutical, and FMCG, for convenience, smaller package sizes, and minimally processed foods have led to the necessity of developing highly functional and smart coatings for packaging. Also, the trend of reducing the total weight of packaging has enhanced the penetration of high-barrier coatings across industries, This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE highlights key technology development and adoption trends of functional coatings with specific emphasis on barrier coatings. The issue also provides key trends in patent filing across the globe to give a holistic perspective on technology trends in coatings for packaging applications. The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries. This encompasses protective and functional coatings such as antimicrobial coatings, food coatings, energy-saving coatings, smart glazing, hydrophilic, hydrophobic and super hydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings and paints. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: F&B industry, pharmaceutical industry, FMCG, packaging solutions, functional coatings
