Towering Sales of Processed Food Consumption in Developing Economies

Rapid growth in the consumption of processed food in emerging economies is creating new opportunities for dual ovenable lidding film manufacturers to penetrate in these potentially remunerative markets. Multinational corporations are also collaborating with local players to establish a strong presence in emerging economies, which is also projected to further drive growth of the dual ovenable lidding films market in these regions.

  • In October 2019, Toray Industries Inc. stated that their Indian subsidiary would begin manufacturing polyamide (PA) and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) at a new space in India.

Change in food consumption habits owing to an increase in per capita disposable income has also encouraged packaging companies to develop new product lines in the dual ovenable lidding films market in these regions. As around 60-70% of the demand comes from urban areas, there is a lot of space and opportunities in semi-urban and rural regions. Manufacturers and distributors must work on their product segments to come up with economically-viable dual ovenable lidding films.


Amcor PLC, Sealed Air Corporation, Sonoco Products Company, Schur Flexibles Holding Gmbh, DuPont Teijin Films U.S. Ltd. Partnership, and Toray Plastics (America) Inc. are some of the leading manufacturers operating in the dual ovenable lidding films market.

  • Need for innovation in flexible packaging is expected to create rewarding opportunities for dual ovenable lidding film manufacturers.
  • Demand for biodegradable dual ovenable lidding films from eco-conscious consumers is anticipated to change market dynamics.

The dual ovenable lidding films market is relatively small in size, which remains a crucial factor for its dynamic and competitive nature. In this report, individual strategies followed by these market players in terms of improving their product portfolios, creating new marketing strategies, and acquisitions and mergers in the dual ovenable lidding films market, have been elaborated.

Bio-based Materials Sought-after

In 2018, more than 70% of the dual ovenable lidding films sold were made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). High chemical resistance, superior tensile strength, and solid moisture barrier properties continue to uphold preference for PET among the market players. Polypropylene (PP) is also emerging as a popular choice of material for manufacturing high-quality dual ovenable lidding films.

Adoption of bio-based material alternatives such as recycled PET (rPET) and crystallizable PET (cPET) would be at pace over the following years, driven by the expanding conscientious consumer population. Raw material innovations are underway.

Changing Dietary Patterns Shaping Market in Developed Countries

A majority of consumers in developing economies continue to show proclivity for fresh cooked meals over their ready-to-eat counterparts that widely available on the market.
