Thermoformed Containers Market Analysis: Trends in Clamshell Packaging Creating New Possibilities for Manufacturers

The global thermoformed containers market was valued at US$ 15 Billion in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.6%, during the forecast period (2019- 2027).

Thermoformed Containers Market: Introduction

Thermoforming is the process of heating a plastic sheet near to its melting point and then moulding it into different shapes and sizes. Once, the plastic has been shaped and trimmed, it is used for precise packaging which includes light gauge and thin gauge thermoformed containers. This process is then used to create different types of containers which include plastic clamshells, packaging trays, blister packaging, and bowls.

Three processes of manufacturing thermoformed containers include vacuum thermoforming, pressure thermoforming, and mechanical thermoforming. The vacuum thermoforming process to make thermoformed containers includes shaping pre-heated plastic sheets by using the vacuum produced in the mould cavity space. Pressure thermoforming process involves shaping a pre-heated plastic sheet using air pressure as a medium. Mechanical thermoforming involves shaping pre-heated plastic sheet using direct mechanical force to create thermoformed containers. Thermoformed containers provide many advantages over other plastic processing procedures, which include less expensive tooling and are easy to mould. The process produces parts with stress crack resistance, high-impact resistance, and rigid material, boosting the growth of the thermoformed containers market.

Thermoformed containers are made with light gauge thermoforming. These parts have the capability to bend. Thermoformed container types include blisters, clamshells, medical device trays, insert trays, display trays, fast food trays, and packaging trays among other packaging solutions. The thermoformed containers market is anticipated to have noticeable growth during the forecast period, as the consumption in the food & beverage industry is increasing. Manufacturers in the global thermoformed containers market are looking forward to providing secure packaging solutions such as tamper-evident and bar code packaging solutions. Thermoformed containers are used for various packaging types which include vegetables, fresh fruits, meat, dry fruits, medicines, and beverages among numerous other products which require protection as well as an attractive visual appearance to stand out on the retail shelves.

Companies in the global thermoformed containers market are designing different types of packaging formats. For instance, Inline Plastics Corporation offers Safe-T-Fresh tear strip clamshell which is made up of recyclable DPET material. The growth of the food and beverage industry is the key driver for the thermoformed containers market. The maximum amount of clamshells and containers are used in the food industry by manufacturers and retailers to keep their food fresh and delicious, day in and day out. The thermoformed containers market is estimated to experience a significant increase, due to an increment in consumption of food globally. Some of the manufacturers are adopting flexible packaging solutions, which may hamper the growth of the thermoformed containers market.
