Global Extrusion Coatings Market Size Analysis
Global Extrusion Coatings Market Size is estimated to be valued over USD 3,900 million in 2018 and will register a CAGR of 4.6% to create high revenue opportunity for industry players.
Though production volume has increased substantially in last few years, most of the companies still leverages near around 75% of the total production capacity. This is expected to increase with rise in demand from allied sectors. Increasing packaged food and beverage sales along with convenience food products has created favorable business opportunity for industry players engaged in extrusion coatings. As per the estimates, convenience food sector registered 3.7% higher sales in 2017 as compared to that in 2016. Such trends is a boost to the allied sectors.
Furthermore, additive manufacturing process is gaining prominence worldwide which in turn has boosted the overall demand for extrusion coatings. The industry is highly fragmented with presence of large number of extrusion coatings market players located in China and South East Asia, however, is not regularized. These companies have their production facilities located close to the allied sectors – leading to good distribution network.
There is high opportunity for leading players to capitalize the extrusion coatings market. There has been significant increase in disposable income and out of pocket spending in last few years in emerging region. As such, there has been increase in overall consumer products sales. Also, beauty and cosmetics industry is registering substantial growth and is expected to drive the sales of extrusion coatings materials.
Companies need to focus on cost containment in order to gain and strengthen their market share worldwide. Extrusion coatings are costlier compared to other modes. Awareness regarding the product and branding it as eco-friendly could create favorable business scenario for players.
Global Extrusion Coatings Market Analysis, By Material Type
By material type, Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) will continue to dominate the global extrusion coatings market share. It is estimated to account for over 73% of global size in 2018. Low price along with higher material usage features has led to wide scale implementation of LDPE for extrusion coatings. LDPE is characterized by short and long chain and is one of the mature form of polyethylenes (PE). Overall, LDPE is wide used for thin film applications, however, its usage in extursion coatings has also increased in last 10 years. Nearly 15% of LDPE goes for extrusion coatings purpose. Going through the historical trend, LDPE price is expected to decline in next ten years. As a result, procurement cost will substantially decline.
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is also gaining significant traction in Europe. For instance, Russia witnessed around 17% increase in import of HDPE in 2017 as compared to that in 2016. Most of these are for extrusion coatings purpose. Similar trend is witnessed across Asia Pacific. Polypropylene (PP) and Polyethylene terephthalate are two heat resistant polymers and has seen impressive growth.
Global Extrusion Coatings Market Growth Analysis, By Application
Liquid packaging will account for over US$ 1,570 million in 2018 and will dominate the global share. Flexible packaging will be next to liquid packaging application. Technology oriented innovations along with increased share of organized retail will be key driving factor for flexible coatings. Plastics, paper and metals are key materials used in flexible coatings. Plastics dominate the flexible packaging.
Global Extrusion Coatings Market Size Analysis, By Substrate
Paperboard, aluminium, metallic foils, plastics, and other polymers are key substrate in extrusion coatings. Paperboard will dominate the global share and will account for 46% of global share.
Global Extrusion Coatings Market Size and Forecast: Regional Analysis
Globally, Asia Pacific will dominate the global extrusion coatings market size, accounting for nearly 43% of total share in 2018. The region is primarily driven by higher sales in China. There are various companies operational at small scale level catering to regional end-use sectors. Pricing has been the key differentiating factor for higher market capitalization by regional players. Stabilizing domestic economic growth has led to flourish of packaging industry in China. The country registered higher retail volume unit growth citing increased sales of packaged food and beauty care products.
Western Europe is next to Asia Pacific in terms of overall sales. Germany, France and UK are estimated to collectively account for nearly 71% of regional sales. Stringent regulatory compliances and emphasis on eco-friendly products for the single-use plastics are major drivers for extrusion coatings market in Europe.
