Sanitary Food And Beverage Packaging Market

According to FMI’s analysis, the market posted significant gains in the historical period, registering a CAGR of nearly 5% until 2020. Heightening sustainability concerns associated with conventional packaging material uptake is largely fueling growth prospects. Statistics indicate that consumer packaging generates the maximum amount of plastic and paper waste, comprising about a fifth of all waste in landfills.

Hence, prominent food & beverage giants are looking to incorporate significant changes in their manufacturing processes. For instance, Alter Eco has partnered with Natureflex to manufacture a compostable wrapper made of eucalyptus and birch trees with microscope aluminum layers that maintain freshness of its chocolate truffles. Likewise, BOSS Foods’ compostable wrappers in collaboration with TIPA Corp helps achieve the same shelf life of a product as conventional plastic.

Key Takeaways from FMI’s Sanitary Food & Beverage Packaging Market Study

  • Paperboard sanitary food & beverage packaging to account for over a third of the revenue through 2021
  • By product type, milk & other beverage cartons are likely to account for around 25% of the revenue
  • US to emerge as the most lucrative sanitary F&B packaging market across North America, owing to stringent FDA guidelines
  • Explicit ingredient labelling requirements to majorly influence market demand in the UK
  • Germany to expand significantly in the sanitary F&B packaging market attributed to growing emphasis on bioplastics
  • Japan & China to emerge as highly significant markets within the Asian continent

“Mounting concerns about possible contamination by biotic components during the manufacturing process combined with a global drive to attain packaging sustainability are collectively driving demand for sanitary packaging materials,” says the FMI analyst.
