Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Barrier Materials Market – Global Forecast to 2020” report to their offering.

The global barrier material market was valued at USD 1.74 Billion in 2014 and is expected to reach USD 2.64 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.26%, between 2015 and 2020

PVDC is one of the key types of barrier materials. It is a highly effective barrier coating polymer that is produced by the polymerisation of a vinylidene chloride (VdC) monomer with other monomers such as acrylic esters and unsaturated carboxyl groups. It is the chemistry, density, and symmetry of the molecules in PVDC that give the material its excellent barrier properties against fat, vapor, and gases. PVDC is widely used in various end – user industries, such as food & beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and agriculture applications.
