Pvdc Coated Films Market New Business Opportunities and Investment Research Report 2026
PVDC Coated Films Market: Introduction
PVDC (Polyvinylidene chloride) coated films are used as barrier films to increase the shelf life of the packaged product. PVDC coated films restrict the flow of oxygen and water vapor transmission through the packaging. The high barrier properties of PVDC coating enables PVDC coated films to be used for the packaging of perishable food products to reduce wastage across the value chain and enhance the shelf life of the product. PVDC coated films are majorly used to package pharmaceuticals, food, and cosmetics & personal care products.
