Barrier Coated Papers Market Study Key Takeaways
Water-based coatings are outperforming solvent-based coatings in the barrier coated papers market. Because of the regulatory landscape, restricted recyclability, and delayed degradation of solvent-based barrier coated papers, water-based coatings are predicted to account for the majority of market share by 2029.

Packaging is expected to account for a large portion of the worldwide barrier coated paper market. Barrier-coated paper makes up more than 95 percent of beverage packaging, as well as the majority of food wraps, cups, and lids used in the food industry.

The food industry has been highlighted as a key end-user for barrier coated papers, as oil and grease resistant papers are required for lining boxes in the packaging of confectionery, dairy, and snacks.

North America accounts for approximately a third of the global market for barrier coated papers. In the barrier coated papers market, North America is likely to lose market share to growing regions, particularly South Asia and East Asia. This trend can be ascribed to strong rise in packaged food consumption and the retail industry in these areas.

In the barrier coated papers market, wider adoption of sustainable barrier coatings is expected to be a prominent trend. Bio-based polymers are gaining popularity as coating materials and are projected to become more cost-effective.

Manufacturers in the barrier coated papers market can leverage the remunerative growth potential offered by nascent bio-based materials. Capacity addition and introduction of cost-effective barrier coatings for paperboard converters can create significant opportunities for all players operating across the value chain.
