Market Analysis

The global flexible packaging market is being driven by the growing prominence of flexible packaging products in the industry, along with the growing demand from the end-user segments owing to the product’s cost efficiency and convenience. Many exciting innovations have been made to modify the product and material, further catering to the increasing demand from developed regions. The consumption of flexible packaging products, particularly pouches, is increasing, owing to its vast usage in almost all the end-uses industries. With consumers becoming increasingly eco-conscious, biodegradable product innovations within the industry is propelling the industry forward.

To increase the shelf life of a product, the packaging must have high-barrier properties. To attain high-barrier properties, many laminate structures have been introduced, such as paper, plastic, and aluminium, and a combination of materials. The industry is focusing on providing a cost-effective and sustainable solution for creating barrier to strengthen the industry growth of flexible packaging. Due to the increasing consumer awareness regarding sustainable packaging, new materials, such as PLA have been introduced, which exhibit great growth potential in the industry in the forecast period.

Flexible packaging is increasingly being consumed by the various end-use industries, namely, baby food, pet food, healthcare, pharmaceutical, automobile, agricultural products, and chemicals. Many companies have shifted from the use of cartons or containers to the pouches or bags for consumer convenience, further advancing the industry growth. Most converters of flexible packaging are investing in fast-growing countries such as India and China.
