Frequently Asked Questions about Multilayer Flexible Packaging Market
What are the supply-side and demand-side drivers of the multilayer flexible packaging market?
A significant increase in the number of modern retail formats such as supermarkets, convenience stores, and hypermarkets has been witnessed in the last few years. Changing lifestyles and increasing per-capita disposable income of consumers have boosted growth of the retail sector in Asia Pacific. All these factors are collectively expected to increase the consumption of products that require multilayer flexible packaging over the next decade.
Which region holds potential growth opportunities for players in the multilayer flexible packaging market space?
North America is expected to account for the maximum market share in the global multilayer flexible packaging market during the period. Increasing consumption of products that require multilayer flexible packaging in China and India is offering lucrative growth opportunities for key players operating in the multilayer flexible packaging market in these regions.
Who are the leading players in the multilayer flexible packaging market?
The global multilayer flexible packaging market is very fragmented. Unorganized and local market players are contributing to significant revenue share. Leading players in the multilayer flexible packaging market include Mondi Group plc, Berry Global Group, Inc., Sonoco Products Company, Sealed Air Corporation, and Constantia Flexibles Group GmbH. As per FMI’s study, tier-2 market players are expected to contribute significant revenue share in the global multilayer flexible packaging market during the forecast period.
What are the recent developments and trends in the multilayer flexible packaging market?
Attributed to continuously changing packaging industry trends, the demand for multilayer flexible packaging is consistently rising. Moreover, demand for flexible packaging solutions is increasing owing to benefits such as extended shelf life and consumer convenience.
Why is multilayer flexible packaging gaining traction over rigid packaging solutions?
High product-to-package ratio, low volume of waste generated, and less energy consumption for manufacturing are several advantages of multilayer flexible packaging over rigid packaging solutions.
Preference for Plastic Stays Intact
Plastic will maintain its hegemony in the multilayer flexible packaging market, with eight out of ten manufacturers opting for the material. Umpteen mechanical properties and low-cost manufacturing processes are enabling broad adoption of plastics, including polyethylene (PE) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). As growth in plastic waste generation is creating a fundamental challenge for regulators, they are instituting norms to tackle environmental waste as well as enhance waste-management techniques. Feeling the regulatory pressure, market players are turning to sustainable alternatives such as paper and aluminum foil for manufacturing multilayer flexible packaging systems.
Europe to Lose Market Share to East Asia in 2026
Evolving consumer preferences in tandem with uptight regulatory framework continue to shape the multilayer flexible packaging market across every regional segment. The market in North America and Europe would lead the pack, owing to the strong presence of industry behemoths. Together, these developed regional markets hold around half of overall revenue. However, East Asia will outpace Europe towards the end of the forecast period, which, in turn, is influencing multilayer flexible packaging manufacturers to rethink their distribution strategies.
Complementing Product Longevity with MAP Technology
Players in the multilayer flexible packaging market must drive their attention towards offering packaging solutions with customized barrier properties according to products in order to promote their longevity. Flexible plastic packaging films with modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) properties allow different scales of permeability for adjusting internal environment of the package to optimize the shelf life of the product within. The respiration needs of packaged products are met through controlled and finely-adjusted component structure of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide.
Plastic stays in demand
Paper to pick pace
Pouches & sachets remain bestselling
Bags to gain momentum
5 layer structures hold leading revenue share
7 layer structures to see gradual increase in sales
Surging consumption in food industry
Adoption in beverages to rise rapidly
How Growth will Unfold
Companies and retailers are highly focused on improving both, the sustainability and fundamentally rethinking of their packaging formats. Particularly in the food industry, prominent brands are aggressively making a move towards sustainable packaging of ready-to-eat food products, including meat, poultry, and seafood. As such, manufacturers of multilayer flexible packaging are viewing the food industry as their target customer. This experiment with entire packaging redesigns is also making advances in the pharmaceutical and beverage industries, with both collectively capturing around one-fifth of total consumption.
