Report Scope

This BCC Research study provides in-depth coverage of many of the most important technological, economic, political, and environmental considerations in the U.S. barrier packaging polymer industry. It is primarily a study of U.S. markets. However, because of the increasingly global nature of polymer and packaging chemistry, it touches on some noteworthy international activities, primarily those having an impact on the U.S. market, such as imports/exports and foreign firms operating in this country.

We analyze and forecast market estimates for barrier packaging plastic resins in volume and pounds. Our base market estimate year is 2017, and we forecast market growth for a five-year period to 2022. All market estimates are rounded to the nearest million pounds and all growth rates are compounded and signified as compound annual growth rates or CAGRs. Because of this rounding, some growth rates may not agree exactly with figures in the market tables; this is especially so with small volumes and their differences. All market volumes are at the manufacturer or producer level.

This report is segmented into nine chapters and an appendix, of which this Introduction is the first.

The Summary, Chapter 2, encapsulates our findings and conclusions, and includes a Summary Table, which summarizes the major barrier packaging resins. It is the place where busy executives can find key elements of the study in summary format.

An Overview follows in Chapter 3, starting with an introduction to the petrochemical industry, the source of all these barrier packaging polymers. Then we discuss the plastic resin industries and focus on barrier packaging. We conclude with a discussion of barrier packaging materials and structures, with emphasis on plastic barrier resins. Our intent is to introduce readers to the field of polymers, barrier packaging, and barrier packaging resins.

Next is Chapter 4, the first of two devoted to market analysis. Here, we discuss, estimate, and forecast markets for barrier packaging plastics by major resin type or class. This discussion includes some major commodity resins, such as polyolefins, that find use as structural packaging resins. However, since these are not primarily barrier resins, and thus outside our scope, we do not attempt to estimate their wide and diffuse markets. We start this chapter with an overall market estimate and forecast for the major types of barrier packaging resins for base year 2017 and forecast to 2022. Then in each subsequent section, we describe individual barrier resin types in more detail, discuss their important applications in barrier packaging, and estimate and forecast their markets in more detail. The types of barrier resins that are coverd and forecast include EVOH, PCTFE fluoropolymer, polyamides (nylons), thermoplastic polyesters, (primarily PET), PVdC, other newer and smaller volume barrier resins like cyclic olefin copolymers (COCs) and liquid crystal polymers (LCPs), tie-layer resins, and vapor-permeable films.

Our discussion and market analysis of vapor-permeable barrier resins and systems is included as an interesting sidelight to barrier resin chemistry, since the very term “vapor-permeable barrier” sounds like an oxymoron. These structures are designed for selective permeation, meaning some gases should pass through the structure but others should not. These markets are growing and very fluid and are more difficult to estimate, giving much rougher market estimates. We include them for interest.

In Chapter 5, we discuss and forecast markets by barrier resin applications. We have placed applications into three specific major groups: food (by far the largest segment), chemical and industrial products, and healthcare products packaging.

Chapter 6 is devoted to technology, starting with some basic plastic resin chemistry, manufacture, and properties of plastics used in barrier packaging. Next, we go to polymerization technology. We then cover other essential aspects of polymer technology including fabrication of rigid and flexible structures, polymer orientation, barrier technology, some competing barrier materials, food processing and packaging and additional new developments in barrier packaging. One of the most important more recent developments has been work on ways to increase the barrier properties of PET, primarily the attempt to develop a really good PET-based barrier plastic beer bottle.

Chapter 7 covers the barrier-packaging resin industry structure, with emphasis on major domestic producers and suppliers, horizontal and vertical integration, market and product entry and differentiation factors, and other topics. Compounders, converters, and molders are crucial links in the plastics production chain. We briefly discuss and analyze some international aspects of the barrier resin business including its global nature, major foreign-owned supplier companies which operate in the U.S., and imports and exports.

Next is Chapter 8, devoted to some environmental, regulatory, and public policy issues that affect barrier plastic packaging. These include waste disposal and recycling, federal laws and regulations, and the all-important public perceptions of plastics and plastic packaging.

Our last narrative chapter, Chapter 9, consists of profiles of many supplier companies that BCC Research considers to be among the most important or best representatives of this business.

We end with an appendix, a glossary of some relevant terms, abbreviations, and acronyms used in the chemical, polymer, and packaging industries.

We note again that some topics and materials covered in the text of this report are not included in our market estimate and forecast tables. We include these topics and materials for completeness. However, they either are really outside the market scope of this study (such as natural film, cellophane and some oxygen scavengers), too new to have yet developed a measurable commercial market, or whose markets are too large and diffuse to forecast the barrier segment with any certainty (such as the use of polyolefins in barrier packaging as structural and secondary barriers). We include these materials and concepts to give the reader as complete coverage as possible, not only of new developments in barrier packaging plastics, but also other materials that can extend shelf life or otherwise affect markets for barrier resins.

For consistency in style and format, registered trade names are usually indicated by capitalizing the initial letter of the name, and generic names are in lower case. Because many chemical names are long and complicated, we often use abbreviations, acronyms, or chemical formulae. Many of these, such as HDPE, PVC, PVdC, PCTFE, and etc. represent common polymers.

All chemical elements and compounds can be designated by chemical symbols and formulas. After introducing the element or compound, we often use symbols such as HCl for hydrochloric acid or hydrogen chloride. Our glossary in the Appendix at the end of this report contains definitions and explanations of many of the most important abbreviations and acronyms.
