The extrusion coating is a process in which a liquid coating layer is fixed on a woven or nonwoven fabric. This extruded layer can be applied on one side, two sides or even multi-layer. Extrusion coater laminators deliver a combined substrate, the component elements of which would be very difficult to separate. The combined substrate inherits highly enhanced physical properties and barrier protection performance from its component elements. Moreover, Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is especially suitable for use in the extrusion coating process and is applied to a wide variety of substrates. Furthermore, Extrusion coating lines are usually custom-built and can be configured for a variety of applications liquid packaging, flexible packaging, photographic film, transport packaging, pharmaceutical packaging etc. additionally, increasing use of extrusion coating in various industries is propelling the extrusion coatings market growth globally.
Growing competitiveness of foremost coating manufacturers, advancement in technology, high development in the automotive, & appliance industry are some of the factors driving the extrusion coatings market. Furthermore, steady growth of packaging industry and high demand for extrusion coating in Asia-Pacific is also the major factor driving the extrusion coatings market. However, factor such as high costs compared to other coatings is hampering the extrusion coatings market globally.
Based on geography, the market is segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Western Europe, Central & Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa and South America. Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest market share in 2019. Because the countries in this region such as China, India, Japan, South Korea, and Indonesia are witnessing remarkable surge in the usage of extrusion coatings in the packaging segment of the food & beverages industry. The growth of the Asia Pacific extrusion coating market is also accredited to the rapid economic growth and growing population.
The resin type studied in the extrusion coatings low-density polyethylene (LDPE), ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), polypropylene (PP), high density polyethylene (HDPE), ethylene butyl acrylate (EBA), polyethylene terephthalate and others. The Low-Density Polyethylene segment dominated the market in 2019, owing to the easy processing, higher melt strength and significant optical properties in comparison with linear polyethylene. Moreover, it has a decent moisture barrier and sealability property
The substrates studied in the report comprises of paper & paperboard, polymer films, aluminum foil and other substrates. Due to the greater properties of paperboard such as lightweight, recyclability, low cost, and environment-friendliness, the paper & paperboard segment witnesses high demand in the market. Moreover, paper & paperboard is used for packaging numerous food items such as snacks, vegetables, and others.
Various application of extrusion coatings are liquid packaging, flexible packaging, photographic film, transport packaging, mills and industrial wrapping, sack lining, pharmaceutical packaging and personal care & cosmetic packaging. Liquid packaging includes in applications used for both short and long shelf life products such as dairy as well as non-dairy. Packaging of liquid foods demand design flexibility, printability and feel, sustainability, among other features.
