ZIP multiple files and also specify size of zip file

I have to zip many pdf files and the size of zip file must not exceed 200 MB. When size is more than 200 MB then multiple zip files needs to be created.

How we can achieve this in UNIX?

I have tried ZIP utility but it takes a lot of time when we add individual pdfs by looping through a directory.

Is there any UNIX zip utility in which we can specify the size of zip file?

If it doesn't matter if you create a chained archive, instead of separate ones, and you're using Info-ZIP, you can use the zipsplit utility.
