The Global Flexible Plastic Packaging Market is estimated to reach USD 152.5 Billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 4.8 %, says forencis research (FSR).
Flexible packaging is replacing the traditional rigid packaging due to numerous advantages which include convenience in handling and disposal, savings in transportation costs, etc. Flexible packaging consists of monolayer as well as multilayer films of plastics. Multi-layered laminated sheets of plastics consist of Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyethylene Terephthalate, and Polyvinyl Chloride. Surging demand for flexible plastic packaging from food & beverage, healthcare, and cosmetic industries are boosting the growth of the market.
Food & beverage and healthcare are the major users of flexible plastic packaging. Growth of the market in food & beverage is dominant, as it ensures extended food quality, safety, and shelf life. Spend on packed foods is increasing owing to the increase in per capita income, increasing population, and urbanization, globally. Besides food & beverage, healthcare is also a major user of flexible plastic packaging. The pharmaceutical industry relies more on the packaging and regulations to protect and promote their products, in order to meet increasing regulations.
Afore said factors are expected to drive the demand of flexible plastic packaging market, globally during the forecast period.
With increasing flexible plastic packaging the percentage of solid waste streams also increases and it poses environmental challenges. Improper disposal of plastics pouches and bags, leads to water pollution, disturbance of soil microbe activity, and the release of poisonous chemicals further harms human health and the entire ecosystem. This is considered a major threat to the environment, public health and is projected to hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.
New products in flexible packaging such as vacuum pouch, high-temperature retort pouch, stand-up pouch, etc. can lead to the changing flexible plastic packaging trends. Moreover, the emerging Nano-coated technology in the packaging of the food & beverage products is also expected to create new market opportunities for the key players.
Such factors coupled with increasing innovations in the packaging industry is expected to drive the flexible plastic packaging market, during the forecast period.
