development opportunities of aluminum foil for packaging

Date: 2019-08-14 15:21

The  market of of aluminum foil for packaging  has a large development potential:

According to statistics, there are currently 83 companies producing aluminum foil in China, with an annual production capacity of 235,000 tons. Some enterprises have modern production equipment, but most of the aluminum foil production enterprises are small in scale, and the equipment level is still far from the developed countries. There are many medium and low-grade products, and high-precision products, such as aluminum foil for packaging. Therefore, the aluminum foil market for packaging has a huge development space both in terms of consumption and product grade.

Application of aluminum foil for packaging:

In addition to cigarette packaging, the application of aluminum foil for packaging mainly includes: aluminum-plastic composite bags, pharmaceutical aluminum foil blister packaging and chocolate packaging. Some high-end beer also wraps aluminum foil on the mouth of the bottle. Medicinal blister packs include medicinal aluminum foil, PVC plastic hard sheets, heat seal coatings and other materials. The medicinal aluminum foil is a sealing material sealed on a plastic hard sheet, and has the advantages of non-toxic, corrosion-resistant, impervious, heat-resistant, moisture-proof, light-blocking, and high-temperature sterilization. The thickness of the medicinal aluminum foil is generally 0.02 mm, which is composed of a protective layer, an ink printing layer, a substrate and an adhesive layer. The aluminum blister is mainly used for some expensive pharmaceutical packaging due to high cost.

Aluminum foil for packaging  are also facing competition with other materials:

However, packaging aluminum foil  is also facing competition with other materials. In food packaging, the main competition is from high-barrier composite plastic films such as nylon, EVOH and PEN. The latter is transparent, making packaging more attractive; and medicinal aluminum foil is competitive with PVDC-coated hard PVC diaphragms, which have an advantage in cost. Of course, the biggest competition comes from the development of aluminum plating technology. Since the vacuum aluminum plating product can be made of a variety of materials such as paper or plastic, and has a wide application range and low cost, it has encroached on the application market of aluminum foil for packaging in many low-end and mid-end markets. However, aluminum foil for packaging has the advantage that it cannot be compared with other materials. It is corrosion-resistant and environmentally friendly, and can guarantee the quality of food, medicine or other materials.
