ALD and VTT in Finland mentioned in report on the Global Packaging Coatings Market, 2015

Crazy day first a call on non-semi applications with a dear old friend and then multiple reports popping up on the same topic. Yeah I know I once owned a Citroen and since then I see them all the time. Anyhow, here is another non-semi ALD future where ALD and VTT in Finland mentioned in report on the Global Packaging Coatings Market, 2015. However a CAGR of 4.2% is not that much to hang in the christmas tree as we say in Sweden compared to many reports saying ALD growth is above CAGR 30%. But then again ALD can for sure grow at high speed within a large market!

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Packaging Coatings Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The increase in consumer preference for eco-friendly products is an important trend being witnessed in the global packaging coatings market. The manufacturers of packaging coatings, which include beverage packaging and food packaging, and are developing new and eco-friendly coatings to comply with regulations and to meet the increasing demand for sustainable products that do not harm the ecosystem. 

This in turn is expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. The VTT technical research center has developed technology for recyclable and eco-friendly packaging coatings solutions. These coatings help in the manufacture of thin, lightweight, fully recyclable, and air-tight packaging materials. They use the atomic layer deposition (ALD) method, which are helpful in food and pharmaceutical packaging as they have a good gas permeation resistance. Moreover, these recyclable coatings do not use barrier materials such as aluminum film, thereby using less raw materials compared to traditional packaging coatings materials.

According to the report, the global packaging coatings market to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% over the period 2014-2019. The growth of the global packaging industry is a major driving factor in the growth of the global packaging coatings market. The packaging industry is expected to grow by 2018. The growth will be characterized by the growing demand for packaging coatings from the packaging industry because of the increased demand for plastic packaging from the food and beverage industry.

Suppliers of raw materials determine the prices of raw materials, which in turn has a negative impact on the growth of the packaging market, thereby increasing the price of packaging coatings.

Here is an rather old press release form VTT on the topic :

The ALD thin coating considerably reduces the need for aluminium in packaging solutions

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed an environmentally-friendly packaging coating solution. Especially suitable for food and pharmaceutical packaging, the coating offers a new method for manufacturing fully recyclable, thin, light and air-tight packaging materials.
