Antimicrobial Packaging Market Research Report and Forecast Antimicrobial Packaging Market - Global Industry A - Page 2

The various materials used for antimicrobial packaging are plastic, paperboard, biopolymer, tin, and glass. Plastics have been predominantly used for making antimicrobial packaging solutions as they are chemically, physically, and mechanically better than the other types of materials. Additionally, plastics can be molded into desired shapes and are known to provide sufficient protection from tears. The elasticity of plastics and its affordable price has also made plastic an obvious choice amongst leading players of antimicrobial packaging market. However, the rising concerns about waste management and disposal of plastics are shifting the preference of manufacturers toward other materials. The non- biodegradability of plastics is likely to restrain its growth as a material for making antimicrobial packaging in the near future.
