Bag-in-Tube Market

2019 Analysis and Review of Bag-in-Tube Market by Product - EVOH Barrier + PE, and Metallized PET for 2019 - 2029

Metallized PET Products Represent the Bestselling Category

Bag-in-tube packaging based on metallized PET continues to witness higher demand, as it more suitable for severe filling compared to EVOH barrier + PE products. As 6 in 10 units of bag-in-tube sold in 2019 were based on metallized PET, manufacturers have set their focus on this category. On the contrary, demand for EVOH barrier + PE products is expected to grow strong going forward, highly influenced by their sustainability and cost-efficient quotient. Additionally, effective barrier properties and lightweight properties of these products are accounting for greater gains in the market.

Europe Takes the Lead with 80% of Global Market Value

Europe will continue to maintain its lead in the bag-in-tube market, with emergence of France, Germany and Italy as the world’s top wind-producing and consuming countries. Unlike conventional wine packaging such as bottle that limits the shelf-life of products once opened, bag-in-tube offers significantly extended shelf-life of 6-8 weeks after opening the pack.

Manufacturers also eyeing opportunities in both mid- and low-income countries where premium products in small packaging are gaining significant momentum. Moreover, wine producers and other end users are leveraging bag-in-tube packaging for product promotion in countries in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.

Synergy of Customization and Online Retailing to Broaden Sales Horizon

Driven by penetration of internet and smartphones, the market for online retailing continues to grow rapidly, and the consumption of food, beverages, and pharmaceuticals on-the-go is significantly picking pace. In such scenario, optimization of shipping weight and space is of paramount importance, thereby potentially raising the demand for bag-in-tube for wines and a range of beverages.

Moreover, a number of market players are showing a palpable duality in their approach - in addition to offering lightweight packaging, these companies are working on high-end customization, in terms of design of spigots and taps used in bag-in-tube.

Furthermore, manufacturers are targeted towards capitalizing on rapidly expanding beverage sector, especially fruit juices. The rise of on-the-go culture and an exponential increase in the demand for ready-to-drinks beverages will provide significant impetus to the market.
