Thermal packaging is a product that acts as an insulator between a product being shipped and the outside air. It allows shipping a hot product in winter or a cold product in the summer. Insulated shipping containers are a type of packaging used to ship temperature-sensitive products such as foods, pharmaceuticals, organs, blood, biological materials, vaccines, and chemicals. They are used as part of a cold chain to help maintain product freshness and efficacy.
- ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) D3103-07, a US standard or test method covers the determination of the thermal insulation quality of a package and the thermal stability of its contents when exposed to variable ambient temperature conditions. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
- AFNOR (Association Française de Normalisation) - NF S99-700, a French standard and thermal performance qualification method to validate isothermal and refrigerating containers for health products.
COVID-19 had a Minimal Impact on Thermal Insulation Packaging Market
COVID-19 impacted various manufacturing industries in the year 2020-2021 as it led to the closure of workplaces, disruption of supply chains, and restrictions on transportation. However, no significant impact was noticed on their thermal insulation packaging global operations and supply chain, as import and export of vaccines and essential goods led to the increasing demand for thermal insulation packaging. This growing awareness and governmental push to the research and development and introducing eco-friendly and sustainable thermal insulation packaging increasing the growth of the thermal insulation packaging market.
The Market Dynamics of the Thermal Insulation Packaging Market Include:
- Growing Demand for Ready-to-Eat Food Products
The convenience provided by ready-to-eat foods provides a way to eat a healthy diet while adapting to the healthy insulating packaging requirements that helps in storing the food for a longer period of time. Ready-to-cook food requires perfect packaging solutions to protect the food from biological contamination and physical influence. This has in turn increased the demand for thermal insulating packaging materials.
