Top 5 Vendors in the Global High-Barrier Pouches Market from 2016 to 2020, by Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global high-barrier pouches market report until 2020. This research report also lists nine other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Based on the global high-barrier pouches market report by Technavio, the market will grow at a steady rate with a CAGR of close to 7% in terms of volume during the forecast period. The area of focus on high-barrier packaging includes material and machinery. The availability of new materials and scope for premium pouches is the primary market driver.

According to Sharan Raj, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on packaging, “The market share of new materials is predicted to rise by 10% in the next 10 years. Although the majority of the demand is from the food sector, the non-food sector will see increased traction as the new barrier materials would be tested on non-food products for barrier efficiency. The adoption rate is high for the non-food sector and on the lower side for the food sector.”

Competitive vendor landscape

The global high-barrier pouches market is extremely fragmented because of the presence of several domestic and international vendors. The intense competition among the market vendors is by product differentiation, portfolio, and pricing. The market is driven by the increase in demand for convenience and packaged food globally. The vendors are trying to distinguish their products and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition for remaining competitive in the market.

Some vendors like Amcor acquired Deluxe Packages (produces flexible packaging solutions) in January 2016 for USD 45 million. This newly acquired business is planned to be a part of the Amcor's Flexibles Americas business group for improving the profitable growth in the North America region.
