According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Heat Seal Coating Market is accounted for $7,603.20 million in 2022 and is expected to reach $12,200.00 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period. This coating is mainly used to close packaging, products, and other thermoplastic supplies using heat. The coating can be done with uniform thermoplastic monolayers or with materials having numerous layers, at least one being thermoplastic. This coating can be supplied in a wide diversity of chemistries and carriers. They are highly formulated with very precise characteristics for the end-use application. The most frequent applications of heat seal coating include blister packaging in pharmaceutical applications and lidding films for food containers and trays.

According to SouthPack, thermoformed packaging can cost up to 15% less than packaging made from plastic injection molding. Such instances are indicative of the fact that the market is expected to witness increased adoption over the forecast period. For instance, in 2019, the Asia-Pacific region will account for 64% of total e-commerce sales worldwide experiencing 25% Year-on-Year (YoY) growth to reach $2.271 trillion. Moreover, according to the U.S. Flexible Packaging Association, flexible packaging market in U.S. was valued at US$ 31.8 billion in 2018. Moreover, according to the same source, flexible packaging is the second largest packaging segment in the U.S. accounted for about 19% of the U.S. packaging market in 2018.

Market Dynamics:


The market's bio-based heat seal coating penetration

Environmental pollution is increasing rapidly as the global economy is growing. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) report, in 2016, 92% of the world's population were exposed to atmospheric pollution of hazardous level. Further, International Energy Agency (IEA) stated that 6.5 million died due to atmospheric pollution in 2016. One of the major causes of atmospheric pollution is utilizing organic solvents during industrial production. Paper and packaging professionals have used bio-based or cellulosic polymers and paperboard to construct compostable structures. Despite this, they have continued to use heat seal coatings that are not compostable by nature. As a result, most packaging containers, such as hot cups, wind up in landfills or the environment. However, as global compostability norms become more stringent, companies are innovating and developing new coating, called bio-based heat seal coating, through which packaging companies can create commercially compostable structures.


The substitutes available in cold seal coating

The cold seal coating is applied damp to the substrate and then instantly dried before reeling up at the conclusion of the press. The key benefit of cold seal technology is its speed. The processing time with cold seal coating is faster since the production lines don't need to wait for the heat to generate in the initial process. Conversely, heat seal coating usually requires priming to design the base film properly, which adds time and cost to package production lines. Therefore, the cold seal process can be 10 times faster than heat seal packaging. Moreover, heat-sensitive items are not destroyed if the production line pauses for any reason during cold seal coating, preventing waste and associated losses. Further, the absence of heat eliminates burn injuries, making employees safer.


Flexible packaging for food industry to attract innovative opportunities for heat seal coating manufacturers

On-the-go solutions and lesser fraction size wrapping for food products are few trends in the food packaging market that is giving rise to heat seal coating solutions. Food product packaging appearances not only influences customer perceptions toward buying behavior, but also builds a brand’s image and helps in easy brand recognition. Finished food packaging is moisture-resistant and shields the food against light, bacteria, and excessive environmental weather conditions. The chief challenge that food packaging with heat seal coating faces is compliance to all food and health safety regulations and avoiding food contamination through coating seepage in food. Heat seal coatings shape the appearance, convenience, and user-friendly nature of the packaging. Dairy packaging, especially aluminum foil yoghurt lids and plastic-based cheese packaging are few products that excessively involve heat seal packaging and are highly perishable. Therefore, coating manufacturers take extra precautions, while designing coatings for food products.


Problems occur with heat seal coatings

A problem that can occur with heat seal coatings is that they can block when wound into a roll. This is essentially premature adhesion and causes the roll of heat seal coated material to form a log that cannot be unwound. Obviously, the roll is completely unusable. Insufficient coating deposition obviously will cause poor or zero adhesion. Excessive coating deposition easily can lead to blocking in the roll. Another processing variable that can cause blocking is winding the coating into a roll with excessive pressure. Even properly dried heat seal coatings usually will contain some heat when they are wound after the coating operation. This amount of heat with excessive pressure will soften the coating and cause it to block. Rolls of coated heat seal therefore should be wound neatly but not excessively tight.

Covid-19 Impact

The outbreak of COVID-19 had a optimistic impact on the market. The demand for heat seal coating for healthcare packaging and related substrates has augmented. It has influenced the growth of packaging for pharmaceuticals as it is essential during the pandemic. The demand for heat seal coating for healthcare packaging and related substrates has increased since the pandemic first began. Likewise, the demand from packaging used in dietary supplements, such as vitamins, and for essential supplies, such as allergy medication, that consumers mostly demanded in lockdown has improved the economic situation for the global heat seal coating market. Furthermore, global consumers are expected to be more inclined to buy their products through different channels from those they used before the pandemic. This has led to a powerful acceleration of eCommerce shipments and other home-delivery services. Global consumers are changing their behavior in the light of the crisis, and research suggests they intend to double their spending at online-only grocery stores. This is expected to prove beneficial for the global heat seal coating market.

The water-based heat seal coatings segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The water-based heat seal coatings segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to growing demand from end-use industries, low-temperature sealing, cost-effective, and odorless lidding material. Water-based heat seal coatings help packaging companies to reduce the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions and aids companies to reduce their carbon footprint, and move towards sustainable packaging solutions. Its low heat seal initiation temperature makes it an excellent solution for flexible food packaging.

The food & beverage segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The food & beverage segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, owing to rising demand for pre-packaged food items, the necessity of tight packaging required for the shipment of foodstuffs, as the delay in delivery time can spoil the food, and heat seal coating gives the best solution to the issue. Moreover, the rising eco-friendly trends influence the demand from customers to use environment-friendly materials in different types of food products.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to the rapid urbanization and changing lifestyle, which has led to increasing demand for ready-to-eat or convenience food products in the region. The available population in countries such as India and China is enhancing the production rate and industries in the region.

Region with highest CAGR:

Middle East and Africa is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the increasing number of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Middle East and Africa are proving to be vital components of the private sector.
