A study, recently conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the global barrier resin market was USD 11.8 billion in 2020 and is further projected to reach USD 17.7 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period (2021-2027). The growth of the barrier resin market is primarily supported by the rising food and beverage industry across the globe as packaging properties of barrier resins keeps gases (oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen) and liquids out. The acceleration in medical packaging from emerging nations throughout the world has also pushed the global barrier resin industry forward. Furthermore, the increased shelf life for agricultural and agrochemical items due to the resin's inability to react with the commodities has fueled the global barrier resin market's growth.

Increasing Demand for Customer Friendly Packaging in Various End-User Industry

The major use of barrier resin is in packaging solutions to provide customer-friendly packaging in various end-user industries. Agriculture and agrochemical products must be packed in unreactive substances that do not change the chemical composition of the products. By providing adequate protection from external environmental conditions, barrier resins enable packaging materials to retain the texture and chemical structure of the products. Several attractive properties of barrier resins have attracted players in the agrochemical and agriculture industry to ship their products in these containers, allowing the barrier resin market to grow. According to the Economic Survey of India 2020-21 report, the total foodgrain output in the nation was 296.65 million tonnes in FY20, up 11.44 million tonnes from 285.21 million tonnes in FY19. The rising agriculture industry across the globe has increased the use of barrier resin in packaging goods. Thus, the key factors mentioned above are driving the growth of the barrier resin market.

Reduces Cost and Waste in Production

The primary factor driving barrier resin growth is the reduction of production costs and waste. Using barrier resin for packaging production allows manufacturers to produce more with less waste. For instance, plastic barrier structures can be designed for aseptic filling, which reduces energy consumption. Moreover, its lightweight properties allow transporting more goods instead of unnecessarily heavy packaging. Additionally, inexpensive but functional packaging design helps bring quality products to a new market. Due to these advantages, barrier resins are increasingly used in production to reduce waste, which has fueled the growth of the barrier resin market.
