Thermoformed Plastics Market Analysis, Size and Growth to 2022

Posted on Updated on

Global thermoformed plastics market is expected to grow positively on account of huge application in growing food packaging industry over the forecast period. They are majorly used in thermoforming process which involves plastic sheets heating to convert into a bendable form which can be molded into the end desired shape as per as customer specifications. Various polymers types are used in thermoforming process. Commonly used resins in thermoformed plastics production include polyethylene, polystyrene and polypropylene. Food industry is a major thermoformed plastics application segment which is expected to drive global demand over the forecast period. Product applications is not limited to food industry but are also used in toiletries, electronics and pharmaceuticals. They are less in weight, flexible and odor & moisture free in comparison to other packaging materials on account of which thermoformed plastics are preferred over others such as wood and glass. Using bio based polymers are expected to be the major market opportunity in coming years. Thermoformed plastics manufacturing finds difficulty in offering similar thickness property as compared to plastics which is expected to obstruct its use over plastics in the coming years. Volatility in raw material prices is expected to hinder the global thermoformed plastics market growth over the forecast period.

Global market is segmented on the basis of product, process and application. Product segmented is sub segmented as polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA),bio-degradable polymers, polyethylene (PE), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS),poly vinyl chloride (PVC), high impact polystyrene (HIPS), polystyrene (PS) and polypropylene (PP). Whereas process segment includes plug assist forming, thick gauge thermoforming, vacuum snapback and thin gauge thermoforming. Application segment includes healthcare packaging, food packaging, electronics packaging, automotive and health care packaging. Food packaging industry was holding majority of thermoformed plastics application share across the globe in comparison to other different application.
