Well packed foods also spoil over a span of time caused due to the diffusion of oxygen through the packaging lamination. Thus, to prevent oxidation of products, biaxially oriented polyamide (BOPA) laminating films are widely used. BOPA laminating films acts as a barrier between the packaged product and environment, thus preventing oxygen to enter in the packaging films. These films offer characteristic properties such as high strength and enhanced barrier properties. Moreover, cast nylon laminating films are widely preferred for the production of BOPA laminating films.
Biaxially oriented polyamide laminating films are widely used in the production of flexible packaging films, and in most of the cases, they are used along with polyolefins to form a multilayer structure. BOPA are applicable in food & beverage packaging and pharmaceuticals packaging owing to their distinctive properties such as transparency, mechanical strength, barrier, and thermoformability. Polyamides are processed into laminating films by cast film or blown processes.
Asia-Pacific is expected to be the dominant region in the global market. Increase in use of flexible packaging, especially in personal care, pharmaceutical, and food products, is projected to boost the overall demand for BOPA laminating films. In addition, manufacturers focus on lightweight packaging products to minimize the additional costs suffered during transportation. Furthermore, rapid innovations in the global packaging industry has led to the development of products that require relatively lower energy during production, thus allowing higher performance. However, , the global demand for BOPA laminating films from the food & beverage industry has witnessed a significant reduction due to the presence of high content of volatile compounds and strict governmental norms concerning toxic emissions. This is expected to hamper the overall growth of the global BOPA laminating films market. Rise in developments in packaging industry and surge demand for BOPA for lightweight packaging are projected to present opportunities in the future.
