The global ESD packaging or antistatic packaging market is characterized by key players focusing on market segments with ESD protection needs. Focus market strategy adopted by key market players has allowed the global ESD packaging market to achieve impressive year on year (Y-o-Y) growth performance.

ESD packaging products have allowed original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to operate with much more flexibility in terms of disseminated production facilities. ESD or antistatic packaging is characterized by better resistance to accumulation of static, shielding against electric field and insulation from transfer of electronic charge.

Manufacturers modify design and implement technological alterations to traditional packaging systems, in terms of material properties, in order to achieve ESD packaging systems. The primary aim of ESD packaging is to protect ESD sensitive products, components and devices from getting damaged by static electricity. ESD packaging can be of three primary forms including anti-static or low charging, offering resistance to electricity and shielding against electrostatic discharge or electric field.

ESD packaging manufacturers provide range of ESD packaging products such as anti-static bags, anti-static stretch films, shielding bags, shielding bubble bags, pink anti-static bubble bags, in plant handling systems, in plant handler trays, ESD storage containers, etc.

ESD packaging products with printing capabilities have allowed manufacturers to communicate brand and product info to users in b2b markets. ESD packaging manufacturers are further adding product variants to their ESD packaging portfolio in order to meet wide range of ESD requirements of their clients. ESD requirements such as separating electronic components from ESD protected area, material handling of WIP components, clean room practices, storage and stoking of static sensitive items, etc. require diverse packaging formats such as ESD foam sheets, insert trays, boxes, layer pads, totes and other accessories.

Damage to electronic products, chips and circuit boards due to electronic discharge has resulted in huge losses to companies across industries such as medical, automotive etc. Shipping high volume of electronic components require careful attention being given to its packaging needs. Demand for ESD protection of circuit boards and other WIP components by OEMs driven by technological competencies have propelled the global ESD packaging market.

Emerging trend observed in the global ESD packaging market is shift in focus to cater to demand arising from automation practices in manufacturing. Operational requirement among OEMs to separate ESD sensitive items, components and devices during manufacturing, assembling and shipping process has led to packaging manufactures cater to such specific packaging needs.

Controlling moisture and humidity from affecting electronic products need packaging system to have barrier or resistance properties. The global ESD packaging market serves moisture controlling needs by supplying moisture barrier bags, desiccants, humidity indicator systems etc.
