Barrier resins are used to cover up anything that will be packaged (especially food). In recent years, awareness regarding health has risen quite well. For that reason, consumers want to consume packaged food that is less harmful.

And in food packaging, the barrier resins play a vital role. Medical, textile, and polythene industries in this sector and many more industries needed them.

Market Dynamic


The growth of advanced manufacturing processes supported by technological innovation and increased consolidation of players has led to the invention of several drugs that directly boost the pharmaceutical packaging industry. This boost has fueled the growth of barrier resins globally. Barrier resins such as PVDC and EVOH are primarily used to protect pharmaceutical products such as sachets, bottle drug labels, and extrusion packaging against light, moisture, oxygen, biological contamination, mechanical damage, and counterfeiting.


These resins are made from diesel, natural gas, mono-ethylene glycol, and petroleum. These materials are too volatile. The unpredictable nature of the raw materials is pulling back the market growth because high-rated production is not possible till now for the evaporative nature of these raw.
