Analysis on the future development trend of the plastic packaging industry by the plastic packaging factory

the plastic packaging industry is developing towards functionalization, greening and reduction, which is both an opportunity and a challenge to the chemical industry. If supporting chemical products want to open up new market share in this field, it is necessary to strengthen the development and promotion of relevant materials. Plastic packaging is both an opportunity and a challenge to the chemical industry. As one of the most direct downstream industries of the petrochemical industry, the upgrading and technological progress of plastic packaging highly depend on the support of chemical products. At the same time, with the improvement of people's living standards and the growing personalized demand in the field of consumption, plastic packaging also puts forward higher and higher requirements for chemical products

plastic packaging is both a challenge and a challenge for the chemical industry to prevent the impact of objects that exceed the specified load during machine experiments.

as one of the most direct downstream industries of the petrochemical industry, the upgrading and technological progress of plastic packaging are highly dependent on the support of chemical products. At the same time, with the improvement of people's living standards and the growing personalized demand in the field of consumption, plastic packaging also puts forward higher and higher requirements for chemical products. Functionalization, greening and reduction have become the direction pursued by the plastic packaging industry, and the supporting chemical products will also usher in more development opportunities

functionalization:

the usage accounts for more than 30% and the demand for special materials is increasing rapidly

according to chenchangjie, deputy director and Secretary General of the plastic Committee of China Packaging Federation and Secretary General of the Green Packaging Committee of Shanghai Packaging Technology Association, it is estimated that plastic packaging materials account for more than 30% of the total amount of various packaging materials at present, second only to paper. If injection molding products must be carried out in the high temperature section within the recommended temperature range. At present, the application of plastics in food packaging materials in China has exceeded 50% of the total amount of food packaging materials, ranking first among all kinds of packaging materials

"At present, the development of China's plastic packaging industry has reached a critical period, and the downstream industries will also put forward increasingly stringent requirements for plastic packaging film materials. In the case of a large number of surplus ordinary films, some high value-added functional films still need to be imported in large quantities. The demand in the industrial field for matt films, bright films, heat sealing films, heat shrinkable films, high barrier films, anti ultraviolet radiation films, anti-static films, flame retardant films, etc. is growing rapidly." Wangdejun, Secretary General of BOPET (biaxially oriented polyester) Special Committee of China Plastics Processing Industry Association, said

in the field of food industry, the role of plastic packaging can not be underestimated. Lidongli, director of the packaging research office of the Key Laboratory of Beijing Institute of printing, said that China is a large country in the production and consumption of fruits and vegetables, but the decay rate is also the highest in the world. The loss rate of fruits and vegetables in developed countries is less than 5%, while that in China is as high as 20% ~ 30%. Functional fresh-keeping materials have a large market in our country. At present, the United States can increase the value of fruits by 2.4 times by using advanced fresh-keeping materials, while the average value of fruits in China is only 0.4 times. In the future, functional fresh-keeping packaging will have a good market prospect in China

"in the future, the food industry will continue to increase the demand for functional films with high barrier, cooking resistance, UV resistance, light protection, antibacterial, breathable, oxygen insulation, etc. in terms of functional food packaging materials and functional additives, China's R & D and production capacity are still relatively weak. Increasing the development of relevant materials will be a win-win situation for both the packaging industry and the chemical industry." Chenchangjie said

Greening:

upgrading of environmental protection and safety requirements related additives are about to sell well

with the enhancement of safety awareness and the improvement of environmental protection standards, consumers pay more and more attention to the health and safety performance of plastic packaging. To ensure the health and safety of plastic packaging materials, we must rely on the wide application of various green and safe plastic additives. Therefore, industry experts say that safe and environmentally friendly plasticizers, heat stabilizers, adhesives, solvent-free inks/water-based inks will become hot products in the market in the next few years

jiangpingping, Professor of the school of chemistry and materials engineering of Jiangnan University, said that since the 1990s, many regulations related to phthalate plasticizers have been issued in the world, limiting their application in plastic products with high hygiene requirements. China's hygienic standard for the use of additives for food containers and packaging materials (GB) also limits the migration amount of some plasticizers. It is a general trend to replace phthalate plasticizers with environmental friendly plasticizers such as vegetable oils. With the improvement of environmental protection standards, the market consumption of non-toxic and safe plasticizers will increase

the greening of plastic packaging is not only reflected in the product itself, but also the volatile organic pollutants (VOCs) emitted in the production process are more and more strictly restricted. With the implementation of the action plan for air pollution prevention and control in China, plastic packaging and printing enterprises are facing severe challenges. "There is no doubt that the packaging inks containing benzene and ketone in the future can no longer be used. The development direction of the market is water-based inks, solvent-free inks and UV curing film friction coefficient determination method classification inks and other products. However, at present, these new products are still very short in China, and neither the variety nor the quantity can meet the market demand." Chen Yu, head of the expert group of the composite membrane special committee of China Plastics Association, said

reduction:

eradicate "white pollution" biodegradable plastics are favored

packaging materials are mostly disposable products with short service life. In order to reduce the impact of packaging waste (commonly known as "white pollution") on the environment, the reduction of waste has become one of the development directions of plastic packaging. In the process of reduction, biodegradable materials play a leading role

wengyunxuan, Secretary General of the National Technical Committee for standardization of bio based materials and degradable products, said that with the increasingly serious environmental problems, the application of biodegradable materials in packaging has attracted more and more praise and attention. In recent years, the demand for biodegradable materials in developed countries such as Europe and the United States has maintained a rapid growth

according to the latest research report of ASD, the market demand for biodegradable plastic packaging will maintain an average annual growth rate of more than double digits from 2013 to 2019, and the global market value of biodegradable plastic packaging will exceed US $8.415 billion by 2019. The report predicts that food and beverage packaging will be the largest major application field of biodegradable plastics, in which polylactic acid and starch based plastics will continue to dominate the biodegradable plastic packaging market, and the biodegradable plastics used for food packaging account for more than 70%

according to insiders, compared with petroleum based polymer materials, biodegradable materials produced in China are mainly exported due to their high cost. With the improvement of environmental protection laws and regulations and the enhancement of consumers' awareness of environmental protection, the domestic biodegradable plastic packaging market is also expanding. During the "13th five year plan" period, biodegradable materials will usher in more development opportunities
