Food Service Packaging Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Increasing Demand for Convenience Foods

The increasing demand for convenience foods attributes to it requires less energy  and less time. Moreover, the aspects that consumers look for convenience foods are packaging, ease to use, nutritional value, safety, variety, and product appeal. Over the past few years, the demand for prepared food has grown dramatically. In the recent survey done by Food and Agriculture Organization(FAO), World Bank, and International Household Survey Network, the food consumption and expenditure were increased by the 27-41%. Thus the increasing convenience foods will increase in the demand of foodservice packaging market during the forecast period.

  • Changing Lifestyle

With the rapidly changing lifestyle, the food habits among the people are also changed. Thus, it directly helps to drive the global foodservice packaging market. Many of the families are leaving in the nuclear setup and most of the family members do not have sufficient time to cook the food. Despite the modern cooking devices, the consumers depend on ready-to-cook (RTC) food as it took less time to consume.

Above mentioned factors are expected to drive the demand of the foodservice packaging market, globally during the forecast period.

Market Restraints:

  • Stringent Government Regulations

Increasing demand for convenience food has led to boost the foodservice packaging market, but it also increases the solid waste streams and poses environmental challenges. Thus most of the countries banned the use of plastic in the food packaging. For Instance, The US government prohibited the use of polystyrene foam in foodservice businesses, owing to it declared as a hazardous substance by the Food and Drug Administration.

This is considered a major threat to humans, wildlife, marine life, food supply, and environmental this may negatively influence the foodservice packaging market growth in the near future.
