Dual-ovenable lidding films market stays warm

Dual-ovenable lidding films are a crucial packaging component for packaged foods that need to be heated in an oven or microwave and that provide key attributes desired by consumers. These benefits include convenience, high safety and more, especially in providing a longer shelf life and maintaining the freshness and taste of the food item in markets where consumers are more inclined towards the convenience of processed food products instead of traditional grocery products. Hence, packaging plays a significant role in the case of processed food products where they are needed to increase the shelf life of foods.

The advent of dual-ovenable lidding films has substantially reduced many of the complications of packaging processed food. PET is considered one of best types of dual-ovenable lidding films and is anticipated to witness a surplus demand over the next couple of years. These and other factors are expected to drive the global dual-ovenable films market in the forthcoming years. The latest report on the global market for dual-ovenable films from Future Market Insights (Valley Cottage, NY) reveals that by end of 2027, more than $133 million worth dual-ovenable films will be sold worldwide.

The FMI report also estimates the market's current value at just more than $73 million and expects it to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 6.1% during the forecast period of 2017-2027. Technological advancements in dual-ovenable lidding films and mergers and acquisitions are key trends that will be governing the market in 2017 and beyond.

Plastics and packaging play a leading role at Plastec East and EastPack, which are part of a 6-in-1 event, New York City Advanced Design & Manufacturing, June 13-15. For more information, visit .
