Insulated thermal box liners are the packaging solutions that enable an ordinary packaging box into a thermally insulated box by restricting the flow of heat across the liner. The passive temperature controlled packaging solutions, such as insulated thermal box liners, are getting traction over active temperature controlled packaging solution for application in low distance transport of cold storage products due to the high initial cost of refrigerators, heavy weight of the machinery, low durability and maintenance requirement, and some other factors. Insulated thermal box liners are highly economic and effective solution for cold storage and transport purpose attracting consumers. This is the reason why the global insulated thermal box liners market has been considered for market analysis. High-density foam boxes were used traditionally as a passive temperature control solution, while insulated thermal box liners have enabled any ordinary box to transport products which require thermal insulation.
Insulated Thermal Box Liners Market: Key Developments
The insulated bubble box liners with the aluminum layer are one of the prominent development in the insulated thermal box liners market. As aluminum act as an excellent moisture barrier protecting the primary product from interaction with water content, bubble wrap protecting the primary product from physical impacts, and the complete combination of air bubbles and aluminum protecting the primary product from environmental heat, insulated bubble box liners are highly preferred by the consumers due to its economic availability and driving the insulated thermal box liners market. For adding odor barrier and other barrier properties to the insulated thermal box liners, ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) and polyamide (PA) materials are also incorporated in the insulated thermal box liners majorly for the storage and transport of pharmaceuticals and cosmetic products. Furthermore, some key packaging market players such as Sealed Air Corporation has introduced highly sustainable insulated thermal box liners made up of kraft paper and paper fibers, produced from recycled paper and also provides cushioning to the primary product with the padding.
