BURNSVILLE, MN | Allied Development Corp. announces a new packaging study: Barrier Materials for Flexible Packaging 2012 to 2016 – Global Markets, Economics, Environmental Impact, and Technology.
Reportedly, the study will help readers learn how the increasing focus on the environment will impact barrier materials; learn about the new and emerging barrier materials for flexible packaging; envision the future potential of each of the barrier materials used in the flexible packaging market; understand the economic value of barrier materials at various levels of barrier; learn which barrier materials are used in a variety of end-use applications; find out which suppliers of barrier materials will benefit from the market and technology developments and trends.
The Market Analysis section examines key drivers and trends affecting the entire industry and analyzes the potential and limitations of each barrier material used in the production of flexible packaging. This section also presents both historical and projected future consumption for each material through 2016.
Several case scenarios are analyzed to compare the relative economics of barrier materials at various levels of oxygen barrier. It also tracks the changes in these relationships through time. Complementary cases examine the environmental impacts (GHG emissions) of these barrier materials.
