Global Edible Films and Coatings Market: Drivers & Restraints
Packaging accounts for approximately one-third of the world’s garbage. Increasing awareness about environmental problems related to disposal of solid waste and reducing the amount of waste generated are major reasons why food manufacturers are focussing on packages that can be recycled, in order to reduce the amount of waste. Edible packaging plays a key role in minimising packaging material wastage from a sustainable materials perspective. Packaging manufacturers and retailers have a key role in making valuable contribution to resolve these problems.
Films and coatings that are used in edible packaging are helping manufacturers reduce wastage of raw material. The inherent benefits of edible packaging have led to an increased adoption by manufacturers and this factor is boosting revenue growth of the global edible films and coatings market.
The global edible films and coatings market is not bereft of challenges. Lack of local manufacturers and import dependency of edible films and coatings results in a high value of packaging over the present packaging solutions. Recycling cost is lesser against total value required for edible packaging. This, coupled with the restrictions on availability is anticipated to act as a major restraint globally for the growth of the edible films and coatings market over the forecast period.
