Key Market Trends

Growing Demand From Packaging Industry

  • In the packaging industry, electron beam curable coatings are widely used for food packaging materials such as folding cartons for frozen foods, gable-top cartons for fruit juice packaging, and dry food packaging owing to their low odor and low migration packaging solutions.
  • Moreover, these coatings are also widely adopted in flexible packaging applications owing to their clean, fast, and energy-efficient way to process coatings in flexible packaging operations. Electron beam curable coatings exhibit properties such as low VOC emissions, instant drying at high production speeds, high chemical and high abrasion resistance, which makes them ideal for application in various packaging applications.
  • Companies such as PepsiCo are actively engaged in exploring the use of electron beam curable coating and ink in surface print applications for flexible food packaging as an alternative to eliminate the potential use of photoinitiators to migrate into food.
  • In recent years, electron beam curable coatings are increasingly gaining the interest of packaging manufactures to shift traditional multi-film packaging structures to mono-web packaging structures. As electron beam, curable coatings help reduce the packaging layers by eliminating the use of lamination adhesive between film layers and minimizing the use of photoinitiators in flexible packaging, which makes it suitable for food packaging application.
  • According to a report published by PMMI, ‘The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies,’ growth in the global packaging industry is anticipated to reach USD 42.2 billion by 2021, an increase from USD 36.8 billion from 2016, owing to the increasing population, growing sustainability concerns, more spending power in developing regions, and rising demand for smart packaging, among others.
  • Amid the significant growth in the e-commerce industry backed by a surge in digitalization, the packaging industry is witnessing sharp growth across the world. According to the Indian Institute of Packaging, packaging consumption in India increased 200% in the past decade, and it is expected to reach USD 204.81 billion by 2025.
  • Hence, owing to the above-mentioned factors, the application of electron beam curable coating from packaging industry is likely to dominate during the forecast period.

  • The Chinese automotive manufacturing industry is the largest in the world, with a production share of just over 28% in 2019. The industry witnessed a slowdown in 2018, wherein the production and sales declined. A similar trend continued in 2019, where the production declined to 25.7 million vehicles, recording a drop of about 7.5% year-on-year.
  • However, in Q1 2021, the production reached 6,352,028 units, which increased by 81.7% from Q1 2020. The manufacturing activities are picking up pace, driving the demand for the electron beam curable coatings market.
  • Additionally, The Indian electronics market is expected to reach USD 400 billion by 2025. India is expected to become the fifth-largest consumer electronics and appliances industry in the world by 2025. India is expected to have a digital economy of USD 1 trillion by 2025. India’s Electronics System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) sector is expected to generate over USD 100 billion in economic value by 2025.
  • Owing to the above-mentioned factors, the market for electron beam curable coating in the Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow significantly during the study period.
