Ethylene-vinyl alcohol is a thermoplastic copolymer that is flexible, glossy, and crystal clear, making it one of the best suitable choices for manufacturing film packaging. The properties owned by the EVOH films, such as resistance to the gases such as CO2 and oxygen, and the controlled atmosphere provided by the films drive the growth of EVOH films for the packaging market. Furthermore, EVOH films also increase the shelf life of products and maintain the aroma of products, thus thriving the growth of this market.

  • For instance, plastic waste is creating many problems, and using sustainable and recyclable materials and products can solve this problem to a very great extent. According to Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung (HBS), in 2016, plastic waste was rosed to 15%, and half of waste ended up in the oceans, and in 2019 Asia held a 54% share in plastic production. So the innovation and the development of biodegradable and sustainable EVOH films will provide an edge to the manufacturers and boost the growth of this market.

The augmenting use of EVOH films in the retail sector due to their transparency and glossy features is attracting more customers. Moreover, the films' easy printability helps provide more information relating to products, bringing new opportunities for the market in the retail industry. EVOH films provide strong resistance to mineral oils, hydrocarbon fuels, mineral oils, and many other solvents that make these films ideal for the packaging of fuel tanks, chemicals, and other industrial materials, boosting the growth of EVOH films for the packaging market.

The EVOH deprives its gas-resistant properties when exposed to moisture that can contaminate the packed product, such as food and medicines, and harm the consumer, thus restricting the growth of EVOH films for the packaging market. To increase the performance of films, manufacturers co-extrude EVOH with PET, PP, and HDPE to have better moisture blockage properties. However, this can escalate the decomposition rate of films. It also increases the difficulties in its recycling process, thus harming the environment and impeding EVOH films' growth in the packaging market.


The pandemic had adverse impacts on the EVOH films for the packaging market. There was a supply chain disruption that hampered the production of the films, and lockouts imposed by the government also halted in-store sales. The restriction ceased all industrial activities, hitting the industrial segment of EVOH films. However, the use of EVOH films in the agriculture sector continued to grow and was unaffected by the severe effects of the pandemic. After ease in the lockdown and restrictions in the trade, there was an increase in online food deliveries that helped the market to regain growth.

Based on type, the market is segmented into cast films and blown films. The cast films hold the largest market share of EVOH films for packaging. Cast films are generally used in the application that requires high optical properties such as transparency, gloss surface smoothness, and tear resistance. Additionally, the thickness and moisture resistance properties are driving the growth of this segment.


Based on application, the market is segmented into pouches, bag-in-box, trays, tubes, and others. Pouches are the dominating segment of EVOH films for the packaging market. Pouches enhance storage, protect the shelf life, and reduce the need for preservatives. The pouches are also used for the packaging of liquid food, and their reusability is accelerating the growth of this segment.


Based on end-use industry, the market is segmented into food, healthcare, agriculture, personal care & cosmetics, industrial, and others. Food holds the largest share in EVOH films for the packaging market. The augmenting demand for packed and fresh food among all generations is fuelling the growth of this segment.

  • September 2021 - Berry Global launched a multilayer bottle for table sauces and condiments to improve convenience and sustainability. The 475ml bottle is manufactured using polypropylene (PP) and is easily reusable. The bottle incorporates a layer of EVOH that provides a barrier to the oxygen and help increase the products' shelf life.

  • March 2021 - Smurfit Kappa launched a light EVOH film for its Ba-in-box solution. The size of the film is 60-micron, and the solution is based on the Polyethylene (PE) resin technology that makes the film more resistant and sustainable. It helped Smurfit Kappa to reduce a bag's weight by 16% and curb CO2 emission by 12%.

  • January 2019 - TC Transcontinental Packaging launched a multilayer barrier stand-up pouch 100% recyclable in Dow and Charter NEX Films. It is one of the first commercialized packages that are 100% recyclable ready and has an EVOH barrier for product preservation, durability, and seal strength.
