Market Drivers:

Given the consumers’ increasingly hectic lifestyles, demand for a variety of convenient products has risen, thereby resulting in a huge demand for flexible packaging. Flexible plastic packaging needs much lesser energy and resources; which means lower costs and lesser retail shelf space. This renders them cost-effective in comparison with other packaging forms. The Flexible Packaging Association reveals that the production of around 784,000 flexible pouches takes up 89% less coal, 64% less crude oil, and 74% less natural gas, compared to the production of rigid clamshell packages. Additionally, consumers are increasingly opting for packaged products instead of the conventional preparation method of food at home.

The demand for flexible packaging is especially high, as it makes use of much fewer natural resources and results in lesser greenhouse gas emissions. The Natural Resources Defense Council says that around 50% of food in the United States was wasted in 2020. Flexible plastic packaging brings down product waste and raises the product’s shelf-life; for example, bananas ripen at a slower rate when in flexible packaging, thereby fostering shelf-life.

Market Restraints:

Government authorities are coming up with steps for environmental safety to cater to the soaring concerns in line with the extensive use of packaging materials like plastics. Several regulatory organizations are developing policies that compel packaging companies to limit the use of certain packaging materials.

The alarmingly high amount of plastic in solid waste streams poses a major risk to the environment. High usage of plastic packaging goes hand in hand with environmental and human health deterioration.  As a result, the US federal government and many other countries have implemented packaging regulations pertinent to drug, cosmetic, and food products for optimum consumer safety. In view of this, the global market’s growth rate could slacken in the following years.
