“Netstal at the Drinktec Beverage Technology show 2017 held in Munich, presented two layers Prelactia light barrier PET preforms for milk products and drinks with higher shelf life. These preforms consisted of a 1-mm inner layer of gray PET, which is overmolded with a 1.4-mm white outer skin. This approach is said to provide an improved light barrier—blocking nearly 100% of visible light—while cutting the use of expensive, UV-blocking titanium dioxide white pigment.”
Packaging- an emerging segment is expected to lead the UV stabilizers market
The packaging is emerging as the largest application segment of the UV stabilizers market. The increasing demand for packaging of food based and non-food based products in Asia-Pacific, North America, and Europe regions is triggering the market growth. The major factors driving the UV stabilizers market in packaging are stability of packaging materials when exposed to UV radiations, weathering resistivity, and long-term durability.
HALS holds a dominant position in the market due to its varied applications and long shelf life
HALS are mostly used in thin and thick cross-section applications such as extrusion, blow molding, fibers, films, tapes, and injection molding, among others. The rising demand for non-degradable, durable, and high-performance products in automotive, packaging, and furniture & construction industries has fueled the growth of HALS in the global UV stabilizers market. Over the forecast period HALS is expected to maintain its dominance in the market, in terms of revenue.
Asia-Pacific gained the largest market share for UV light stabilizers, pertaining to its booming industrial sector
Asia-Pacific led the global UV light stabilizers market by holding more than half of the shares in 2016. It is expected to maintain its dominance in the forecast period as well. An increase in the demand for packaging of goods and coating of furniture surfaces & automobile parts is fueling the market in this region. A rise in the trend of cultivating crops in polyhouses is also responsible for the growth of market in Asia-Pacific.
However, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa are forecasted to grow with the highest CAGR of 12.05%.
