anti static packaging gains popularity for protecting electronic objects

Presently, the efficient use of anti-static packaging for safeguarding electronics or flammable objects from electrostatic discharge is building its market on the global level.

An antistatic agent is basically a compound used for handling of materials or their surfaces so as to reduce or eradicate buildup of static electricity. Static charge can be generated by the triboelectric effect or through a non-contact process involving a high voltage power source. Hence, an antistatic bag is used for storing electronic components that are prone to damage caused due to harmful effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD).

Such bags are primarily known to be plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and possess a distinctive color; either silvery for metalized and pink or black for polyethylene. As per a recent report published by Market Research Hub (MRH), the effective use of anti-static packaging is acting towards controlling static discharge and remove damaged shipments, thus directly impacting its market. 

Presently, the use of conductive antistatic bags is also gaining popularity. These bags are manufactured with a layer of conductive metal, often aluminum, along with a dielectric layer of plastic enclosed in a static dissipative coating. This setup forms both a shield as well as a non-conductive barrier, protecting the contents from static charge due to the Faraday cage effect.

Looking at the geographical expanse of the antistatic packaging materials, the world's major regional market conditions comprise of regions such as North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. Among these, the main countries include the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, South Korea and China. In the coming years, fresh development trends, as well as the entry of new firms in the antistatic packaging materials market, is anticipated to drive its market to newer heights.  Further, new project investment proposals are also making the rounds to favor the concerned market in the near future.
