As the sales of food products, mobiles, and laptops continue to soar, consumers are seeking strong packaging solutions for seamless storing and transportation applications.

FMI study also remarks that the eco-friendly and biodegradable nature of molded fiber pulp facilitates recycling, thus aiding in reducing the costs associated with production.

However, the report opines that the COVID-19 pandemic will exhibit an adverse impact on the growth of the market owing to changing eating patterns of consumers and the closure of retail outlets.

Key Takeaways

  • Trays and clamshell containers collectively account for nearly 70% of market value, backed by the large volume of products they facilitate packaging.
  • Transfer molded pulp will capture more than 50% of market value owing to the thinness that makes it highly sought-out among consumers.
  • Primary packaging will channel over 70% of market value ascribed to high adoption in consumer durables segment
  • By end-use, the F&B segment will drive over 2/5th of revenue, owing to the high demand to pack and store eggs.
  • APEJ will spearhead the regional landscape, accounting for nearly 2/5th of market value, attribute to soaring sales of mobile phones in India and China.
  • Western Europe and North America are expected to collectively account for 40% of market value, backed by high consumption of wine and equal demand for consumer durables.

“Market players are focusing on developing products with innovative features to facilitate different forms of packaging and to overcome the existing strength-related limitations," remarks FMI analyst.

COVID-19 Impact

The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought the trade, sales, and transportation activities to a screeching halt, thus negatively impacting both the consumer durable electronic goods and F&B sectors.

Owing to the reliance of the molded fiber pulp packaging market on the aforementioned sectors, hindered operations have led to demand contraction, thus pushing the immediate future of the market into uncertainty.

In addition to supply chain-related difficulties, changing eating patterns of consumers - such as high demand for home-cooked food - is likely to further decelerate the growth. Likewise, economic uncertainty has affected the purchasing power of consumers, thus leading to a downfall in sales of non-essential consumer durables. These factors are likely to create fluctuations in the growth trajectory of the molded fiber pulp packaging market.

Who is Winning?

Molded fiber pulp packaging market players are focusing on designing and developing innovative and customized products that cater to specific consumer requirements. On these lines,

  • In May 2019, Huhtamaki launched a new line of meal trays which is suitable for both microwave and regular ovens.
  • UFP technologies offers solutions that accommodate multiple models of an industrial door closing mechanism into one tray only.
