Top 5 Factors Influencing the Egg Packaging Market

High Preference for Convenience in Transporting Eggs

Eggs demand careful handling before, during, and post transit, which is why the packaging of egg plays a crucial role. Trays and cartons that are typically used for egg packaging are constructed in such a manner that they can be stacked and placed in crates or boxes during a longer transit time. Effective egg packaging ensures egg quality by absorbing stress and shock during transportation.

Egg packaging manufacturers are adopting moulded fibre-based products that will reduce carbon footprint. Packaging experts and consumer product companies in the egg packaging market are focusing on ‘green packaging’, as polystyrene is not easily recyclable and requires larger amount of fossil fuel in the production.
