LONDON, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "Barrier Resins market to register a CAGR of 5.85% between 2016 and 2026" The global barrier resins market is estimated to reach USD 3.52 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.85% from 2016 to 2026. Growth in the pharmaceutical packaging industry in emerging economies, enhanced shelf life of packaged food products, and growing urbanization and changing lifestyles are driving the food packaging market, which in turn is expected to drive the barrier resins market during the next ten years. The major restraining factors in the global barrier resins market are the increasing overall packaging costs, and stringent health regulatory compliance standards, environmental, and political norms. "PVDC is the major type driving the barrier resins market" Polyvinylidene Chloride (PVDC) is a highly effective polymer that is produced by the polymerisation of a vinylidene chloride (VDC) monomer with other monomers such as acrylic esters and unsaturated carboxyl groups. It is the chemistry, density and symmetry of the molecules in PVDC that gives the material its excellent barrier properties against fat, vapor, and gases. "Rising demand in Asia-Pacific is the major driver of the barrier resins market" The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest-growing segment of the barrier resins market. The increase in the disposable incomes of the middle-class population, and demand from end-use industries are expected to fuel the demand, thus driving the barrier resins market in the region.
