Overview of the global packaging tapes market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global packaging tapes market to grow at a CAGR of more than 5% by 2020. Packaging tapes are used across several industries and have to undergo extreme weather conditions during transportation. These challenges have pushed vendors to introduce innovative products such as light-weight tapes and UV-resistant tapes. Manufacturers are using machinery and converters for tape and substrate processing as these technologies reduce the time taken by the products to reach the market. The new packaging tapes offer absolute transparency, high aging resistance, good adhesion, and clean positioning. The acrylate-based pressure-sensitive adhesives provide trouble-free labeling at exceptionally low temperatures, and ultra-violet acrylate adhesives enable high aging resistance. Additionally, the market is witnessing the demand for printed packaging tapes because of the growing need to differentiate products for easy identification and marketing purposes.

APAC will be the fastest-growing region in the market and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The high purchasing power of people in countries like China and India has increased the demand for different retail and food products and beverages, resulting in the rapid growth of packaging tapes.

Overview of the global cider packaging market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global cider packaging market to grow at a CAGR of almost 5% by 2020. The growing demand for alcoholic drinks has propelled retailers to focus on shelf-life packaging that is easy to transport and store and is convenient to unpack. Vendors are coming up with polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, which protects the cider products for longer durations. Plastic is gaining preference over glass bottles and metal cans because of its lightweight, low costs, and wide availability of designs.  The manufacturers are also introducing bottles equipped with a barrier coating technology to increase its shelf life and minimize the risk of permeation. Also, with several technological innovations in the market, there is growing demand for water-based coating technology as it is odorless, tasteless, and environmentally-friendly, and reduces the use of spray powder.

Retort pouch or aseptic pouch packaging is gaining traction in the cider packaging market. These pouches are made of multi-level laminates that maintain the quality of cider products. Many cider packaging companies have started the use of stand-up pouch packaging. Sustainable stand-up pouches are eco-friendly as they are non-toxic and biodegradable in nature. These pouches are also efficient in protecting the quality and essence of the product. Also, several vendors are increasingly using aseptic pouch packaging for cider products

Overview of the global pharmaceuticals caps and closures market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict that the global pharmaceuticals caps and closures market will grow at a CAGR of more than 5% by 2020. The growing use of child-resistant and tamper-evident packaging has gained huge popularity in the market which has encouraged vendors to use superior quality plastics such as cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) as a raw material in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical caps and closures because of their exceptional barrier properties. COCs are clear amorphous copolymers and have a unique combination of properties like low density, high transparency, and resistance to aqueous and polar organic media. Also, these materials are halogen-free and environmentally-friendly. Other plastic materials, such as High-density polyethylene (HDPE), polyester, and PP, are also being used as raw materials in the construction of caps and closures because of their flexibility, lightweight, and corrosion resistance.

Several vendors in the market are coming up with advanced designs, to attract consumers by offering convenient products. For instance, Triumph Pharmaceutical has launched dual spout closures for its oral care product SmartMouth. It allows the consumer to use two solutions simultaneously from two bottles packed as one. The product is classified as original, gum and plaque, and dry mouth. Some of the companies have also introduced hot-fill polyethylene terephthalate (PET) containers with metal closures. Consumers benefit by having the same quality product but in a light-weight PET bottle. These varieties of packaging are expected to increase the demand for pharmaceutical caps and
