Hot Fill Packaging Market: An Overview
Hot filling is a beverage or liquid food packaging technique, in which the product is heated and then filled in the container. Filling at hot temperature is done to sterilize the container & its closure. Hot fill packaging is suitable for the packaging of non-carbonated beverages, water and other soft drinks, and provides an approximate shelf life of 6-12 months, depending upon the barrier layers used. Usually, high-grade plastic material is used for hot fill packaging, to withstand the hot liquid without losing its structural integrity. PET bottles are most commonly used for hot fill packaging, hot-filled PET bottles are usually about 1.5 times heavier than cold-filled bottles
Hot Fill Packaging Market: Dynamics
As the consumers are getting more concerned about the harmful effects of preservatives in their beverages, the demand for preservative-free products, with an extended shelf life is on its peak. This awareness is expected to be the key driver for the global hot fill packaging market in the coming years. Furthermore, hot fill packaging controls the bacterial or microbiological growth and retains the nutritional properties of the product; this eliminates the need for preservatives to a large extent. Unlike boiling, it preserves the taste of the filled product. Additionally, when compared to other filling processes, it is more economical and requires simpler process. These factors are expected to fuel the demand for hot fill packaging in the coming years.
However, there are some other packaging techniques such as aseptic packaging, which might gain grounds in the beverage packaging market. Usually, this process is used when the product’s taste is likely to be affected by heat, for aseptic filling the container needs to be sterilized and filled in sterile conditions. This increases the overall cost of packaging. Thus, its adoption highly depends on manufacturer’s packaging budget. In conclusion, the demand for hot fill packaging is expected to remain stable in the beverage packaging market.
Hot Fill Packaging Market: Regional Outlook
The geographical analysis of hot fill packaging market has revealed that the Asia Pacific is expected to outpace all other regions in terms of growth rate. This growth can be attributed to the massive investment by beverage giants in Asian economies such as China & India. Easy access to beverages has enabled an increase in consumption of juices and other non-carbonated drinks. Thus, beverage manufacturers are investing heavily on expansion in these areas; this is expected to escalate the demand for hot fill packaging in the region during 2019-2029.
Moreover, Europe and North America are expected to witness sustained demand for hot fill packaging owing to the high consumption of beverages in both regions. High consumption of flavored beverages, soft drinks, and energy drinks in the region are expected to bolster the sales of hot fill packaging solutions in the coming years. Furthermore, rising per capita consumption of beverages in Latin American economies is likely to translate into immense growth potential for the global hot fill packaging market.
