Global Flexible Packaging Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4.25% over the Forecast Period of 2021-2026.

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Flexible Packaging Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the global flexible packaging market stood at a value of around USD 106.3 billion in 2020. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.25% over the forecast period of 2021-2026 to attain a value of nearly USD 136.5 billion by 2026.

The global flexible packaging market is driven by its growing demand from its end-use segments and its increased consumption due to its cost-effective and convenient nature. North America leads the global flexible packaging market and is a major consumer of the product. In 2020, the region accounted for nearly 37% of the global market share, followed by the Asia Pacific. Plastics, among other material-types, dominate the flexible packaging industry globally, followed by paper and foils. Plastic flexible packing majorly involves the use of PE, PP, PET, BOPP, and BOPET. With the advancing technology, new solutions are emerging, which are further grabbing the attention of the consumers. One of the major innovations in the industry includes the launch of 12-micron bi-axially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate (PET) barrier polyester film, which comes with bio-degradable properties and offers extended shelf life. Among its applications, the food segment holds a major share in the global flexible packaging market.

With the consumers’ increasing inclination towards environmentally-friendly options, packaging has become one of the key issues that consumers want brands to address; thus, making manufacturers focus on sustainable packaging solutions. In 2020, Berry Global, Inc. (NYSE: BERY), a key player in the industry, created the strawless lid from polypropylene (PP) for on the go consumers and the environment, which goes perfectly with company’s widely recyclable PP drink cups, further minimising the use of straw, which is considered hard to recycle due to its small diameter. Further, the increased demand for PET (polyethylene terephthalate) containers due to their lightweight, and unbreakable and portable nature, is further aiding the market growth. In August 2020, Amcor plc (NYSE: AMCR), another leading player in the industry, developed the first PET bottles for pasteurised beer in Brazil, featuring the beauty of a glass-like, champagne-style base, which further meets the shelf-life requirements and is recyclable in nature. Such developments are expected to drive the growth of the global flexible packaging market over the forecast period.
