Thermoform Packaging Market Overview

Thermoforming is referred to a process in which a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable forming temperature, to form a specific shape in a mold and trimmed accordingly to create a usable product. Then, the sheet or film is heated in the oven over a high enough temperature so that it can be stretched into a mold and cooled to be in a final shape. The simplified version of thermoforming is vacuum forming. In other words, a small machine which is of laptop or tabletop size is used to cut heat small sections of a sheet and it is stretched over a mold using vacuum.   

Market Size and Forecast

The thermoform packaging market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 6% over the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027.
