The continued growth in demand for quality food products and preparations across the globe, coupled with the rising trend of food delivery and takeout, has greatly expanded the food packaging market, as per a study by Grand View Research. The COVID-19 pandemic is also expected to drive industry innovations in the near future.

The global food packaging market size is expected to reach USD 456.6 billion by 2027, according to a report by Grand View Research, Inc. The industry is projected to advance at a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period. The shift towards healthy lifestyle and alternative eating habits has caused a growing demand for convenience food products, which is expected to bolster the market growth. The rapid growth in the urban population, coupled with a preference for ready-to-eat meals by consumers, is expected to spur the demand for food packaging. Food packaging has evolved from just performing its basic function, to becoming more environment- and technology friendly in recent years, aided by numerous innovations on the manufacturers’ part. Rising concerns of consumers regarding contamination and food safety is expected to bolster the demand for effective packaging solutions in the coming years.

The rising number of retail chains across the globe is poised to propel packaged food sales, which will lead to increased demand for packaging solutions. Furthermore, online food delivery and takeout food are trends that have positively impacted the food packaging industry, with brands such as DoorDash, Uber Eats, and Grubhub having established themselves in the food delivery ecosystem. A growing inclination towards environment-friendly and sustainable packaging has also compelled packaging manufacturers to innovate their products, which is creating a positive environment for industry growth. Emergence of new and innovative packing types and technologies including Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP), active packaging, and printing technologies are expected to boost the global industry scenario. Market players, both new and established, have insisted on investing in the development of cost-effective, lightweight, and high-performance materials. However, low recycling awareness, coupled with environmental issues such as overcrowded landfills and greenhouse gas emissions caused by plastic disposal, are expected to hamper the growth of the packaging industry to a certain extent.
