Packaging Testing Market

According to FMI, the packaging testing market is riding on the back of increased demand for efficient packaging solutions across such key domains as food & beverages, consumer electronics, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics & personal care products.

Goods are highly susceptible to damage from external conditions while in transit. These typically include moisture, humidity, fluctuating temperatures or external physical shocks. Therefore, industries are looking to incorporate advanced testing solutions so as to improve their packaging approaches.

Key Takeaways from FMI’s Packaging Testing Report

  • Microbiological tests to ascertain presence of pathogens is likely to register impressive growth

“Vendors are capitalizing on consumers’ growing enlightenment about unauthorized usage of recycled packaging materials to introduce novel solutions in the forthcoming forecast decade,” remarks an FMI analyst.

COVID-19 Impact Insights

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global economy, with production and supply chain distortions being experienced virtually by every industry. Since manufacturing is directly linked to packaging, the industry is slated to register major revenue shortfalls in the near term.

With respect to packaging testing, the market has experienced moderate to substantial shortcomings since the pandemic’s onset. This is because demand for pharmaceutical and food & beverage products have kept demand for robust packaging solutions sustained throughout the past few quarters.

As countries are gradually phasing out lockdowns, industrial production is slowly returning to normal levels, leading to an upswing in the packaging industry for the remainder of the assessment decade. This is likely to alleviate the gaps experienced by the packaging testing domain.

Competitive Landscape

Leading packaging testing market players are looking to augment their research capabilities in order to develop new and innovative packaging testing solutions. Furthermore, they are forging strategic alliances with packaging giants as well as competitors to acquire a significant edge.

Prominent players within the packaging testing landscape include SGS SA, Intertek Group Plc, Bureau Veritas SA, Eurofins Scientific SE, ALS Limited, TUV SUD AG, Mérieux NutriSciences Corporation, Microbac Laboratories Inc., National Technical Systems Inc., EMSL Analytical Inc., Institut fur Produktqualitat GmbH and Campden BRI.

In September 2020, SGS S.A. inaugurated a new hybrid commercial onsite geochemistry laboratory at the Balkhash industrial site in Kazakhstan, Central Asia. Through this approach, the company hopes to expand its laboratory testing services portfolio for the chemicals packaging segment.

Also, Intertek Group Plc has announced the initiation of a joint food audit program in collaboration with Roquette, a global leader in plant-based ingredients for food. This audit aims to create a safer food supply chain through best packaging audit practices.
