Governments and manufacturers are providing funds to research and develop innovative packaging solutions. Further, consumers are increasingly inclined toward green, low-carbon products to eliminate waste pollution. EVOH packaging is environmentally friendly because it has a low carbon footprint and can be easily recycled. Unlike plastic and paper containers, it does not produce waste and does not need wood cutting for raw materials. These benefits increase the demand for EVOH resins for eco-friendly food packaging, propelling the market growth.

In 2020, Asia Pacific held the largest share of the global EVOH resins market for food applications. The major factor contributing to the growth of the market in this region is the growing demand for EVOH resins in packed food products. Consumers prefer healthy foods with high nutritional value, low cholesterol, preservatives, and fats. EVOH finds its application in various food packaging products, such as meat packaging, baby food packaging, and beverage packaging. These factors are driving the demand for EVOH resins among manufacturers in the country. The increasing inclination of consumers toward packed food due to busy life has projected the demand for EVOH resins for food packaging applications. The Indian middle class is growing, and so are their buying capacity and demands.  People prefer premium products, especially in the confectionery segments like chocolates, chips, and a lot more, and exploring packaged foods in the ready-to-make and easy-to-eat category, creating opportunities for EVOH resins for food packaging application.

Market Insights
Consumer Preference for Online Sales Channel to Purchase EVOH Films Favors EVOH Resins Market for Food Application

Consumers prefer online sales channels to purchase EVOH films for food packaging. Therefore, many companies focus on developing e-commerce websites to increase customer engagement.  Industry analysis also indicates that the rising demand for EVOH films among end users is driven by changing market trends. In addition, an increase in smartphone penetration is supporting the EVOH films demand. Digital content, travel and leisure, financial services, and e-mail are e-commerce options available to an internet-accessible customer base, gaining traction as internet usage grows. Therefore, consumer awareness of the technology is expected to positively impact the demand for EVOH resins in the food packaging market during the forecast period.

Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic crisis has transformed the way e-commerce functions. The rise in small and medium enterprises, especially in Russia, and the increasing number of start-ups have led to the adoption of online marketplaces for business. Existing organizations and large businesses tend to do business online because telecommunications and infrastructure are cheaper. E-commerce allows organizations to reach customers to achieve the desired business results easily. Hence, the strong growth in the online retail sector in Europe for EVOH films would provide lucrative opportunities for the market in the coming years.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is segmented into films, trays, bottles, bag-in-box, and others. Manufacturers use EVOH bottles for their excellent barrier against gases and organic liquids. EVOH is often sandwiched between the bottle or jar's inner and outer plastic walls. A thin adhesive layer goes between the EVOH layer and the inner and outer wall. As a result, EVOH is often referred to as a multilayer barrier technology. These EVOH bottles are generally used for shelf-stable beverages. Beverages are highly perishable; thus, they can contaminate easily when it comes in contact with the outer environment. Due to these factors, the demand for EVOH bottles is increased among beverage manufacturers and is further expected to drive the segment's growth in the region over the forecast period.

(Mitsubishi Chemical Europe GmbH); Eval Europe NV; Nippon Gohsei (UK) Limited.
In 2022, Asia Pacific held the largest share of the global EVOH resins market for food application. The rise in the number of consumptions of packed food such as meat poultry and seafood would cater the demand of recycled plastics in the region. The region is also flourishing owing to presence of manufacturing facilities and cheap labor. The strong economic condition and rising innovation in development in sustainable packaging is propelling the demand of EVOH resins in packaging. Companies are focusing on development of more sustainable packaging, such as they are increasing barrier properties of EVOH resins packaging and these packaging keeps food product fresh.
The films segment held the largest market share. Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer (EVOH) is a flexible, crystal clear, and glossy thermoplastic copolymer with excellent flex-crack resistance and high resistance to hydrocarbons, oils, and organic solvents. EVOH films have good barrier properties to gases, such as oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, making them especially suited for packaging food and other perishable or delicate products to extend shelf life. In comparison with many other common films, EVOH has superior barrier properties. However, EVOH loses its good gas barrier properties when exposed to moisture.
The meat poultry and seafood segment held the largest market share. Packaging of meat is critical, especially when it comes to fresh meat. Since fresh meat, poultry and seafood are perishable, and weight loss due to dehydration can increase the decay rate, extending shelf life remains a key objective for packaging. Implementing EVOH as a packaging material barrier extends the meat's shelf life. EVOH has outstanding barrier properties against gases, such as oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and helium. These gases are widely used in modified atmosphere packages. EVOH resins for packaging have antistatic properties, which ensure that dust particles in the atmosphere do not settle down on the packaging to prevent microbial growth.
Asia Pacific is estimated to register the fastest CAGR in the global EVOH resins market for food application over the forecast period. Many APAC countries, such as China and India, are the world's fastest-growing populations. With a growing population, the demand for packed food is increasing, which is directly impacting the demand of EVOH resins for packaging. The strong economic condition and rising innovation in development in sustainable packaging is propelling the demand of EVOH resins in packaging. Companies are focusing on development of more sustainable packaging, such as they are increasing barrier properties of EVOH resins packaging and these packaging keeps food product fresh. The adoption of EVOH resins is increasing among manufacturers as they are being extensively used to extend the shelf life of food products. Further, the Asia Pacific market is expected to open many untapped opportunities and boost demand, driven by population growth, rising per capita income and consumer awareness of packaging to ensure safe food consumption.
