Nanomaterials Expected to Improve Product Packaging

Abstract:
Research and Markets has announced the addition of Nanotechnologies for Packaging and Product Security to their offering. Nanotechnology will impact the development of innovative packaging in a number of areas including improved barrier properties, biodetection and antimicrobialism. Enhanced materials with new features, such as electronic displays, will lead to a higher valued package, while shelf-life will be increased through enhancement of the barrier properties of packaging materials. Applications using polymer nanocomposites are already impacting the market and potentially will replace a large percentage of plastics in packaging applications.
