Packaging Films Market Expected to Reach $209.7 Billion by 2032 – IMF

Edible packaging films are set to be the new normal in the food industry, projects Future Market Insights (IMF) in a new study. Sales in the global packaging films market will increase by 3.9% CAGR to 2032.

Consumers are increasingly focusing on sustainability and nature-based packaging products. Food packaging is one of the booming trends in the food industry that ensures optimal use of natural resources for packaging. Edible packaging is not only available in rigid formats but also in flexible formats such as edible packaging films. Many companies are following research on making edible food wrap films that are safe for humans and other animals, and easy to digest.

For example, the Agricultural Research Services (ARS), the United States Department of Agriculture, has formulated food wraps from casein. These packaging films/wrappings have many nutritional values ​​because they are made up of milk proteins. Therefore, these packaging films are edible and help reduce waste.

Also, an international group of Indian and Russian scientists have developed edible packaging films for food packaging such as vegetables, fruits, seafood, meat, poultry, etc. As these packaging films are made of natural ingredients, they are completely water soluble and harmless to health and the environment.

Based on the above factors, FMI predicts that edible films and wraps will bring a new dimension to the packaging industry and set the new standard for the food industry.

Steady rising adoption of flexible packaging formats motivating key players for manufacturing high barrier strength packaging films

Pre-made pouches have grown in popularity for packaging applications in pet food and baby food products. There are huge opportunities in the pet food and baby food packaging market for existing manufacturers and new entrants to establish their presence in the market. Pre-made pouches are expected to outperform other packaging products (such as folding cartons, jars, trays, and thin-walled plastic containers) in these categories.

Consumers prefer convenient packaging solutions that provide high barrier properties and long shelf life. The demand for pre-made baby food pouches is increasing at a much faster rate than before due to the introduction of different closure systems and the ease of resealability of these pouches. Moreover, the pre-made pouches are made of FDA-approved materials that ensure the safety of the food products packed inside.

Pre-made pouches for pet food packaging are attracting more and more attention due to their autoclave application, ease of resealability, transparency and high barrier properties. Brand owners also prefer pre-made pouches over other rigid packaging products to gain cost competitiveness and increase profit margins through reduced transportation and raw material costs.

Moreover, the safety of products during transport is the main concern of many end users. Packaging films minimize the risk of product damage and contamination. These films are not only used as a primary or secondary packaging format, but also as a tertiary packaging format. Packaging films such as stretch films and shrink films are used to wrap pallet-based bulk packaging and ensure slip-free transportation of products.

To meet the growing consumption of flexible packaging formats, major players are considering double investment to increase the production capacity of packaging films. Some manufacturers also invest in research and development activities to strengthen the barrier resistance of these films.
