Eco-friendly packaging is a packaging solution in which a product is packaged using environmentally safe materials and can be easily degradable. The materials must be contained to prevent contamination or tampering from chemical, physical or biological sources. Such packaging is largely prepared from renewable raw materials with less environmental impact during operation, development, and after use.
Eco-Friendly Packaging Market Dynamics
- Increasing awareness about the consumer about drawbacks of plastic products
The rising consumer awareness regarding the disadvantages of using non-degradable and single-use plastic products for food packaging is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Widespread usage of non-degradable and single-use plastic packaging products affects the environment harmfully. Plastic takes approximately hundreds of years to decay in a landfill and causes several harms to the environment and eventually harming the life of animals, plants, and humans. Therefore, growing awareness about the hazards of using plastic products for food packaging among consumers is expected to propel the market's growth during the forecast period.
- Rising demand for biodegradable packaging from the food and beverages industry
The growing demand for biodegradable packaging from the food and beverages industry is expected to grow the market. Food and beverage manufacturers are progressively adopting reusable and recycled packaging materials to reduce packaging waste in compliance with government regulations. Food and beverage manufacturers' rising shift toward green and eco-friendly packaging helps generate a positive brand image for consumers. This is also boosting the market growth.
- Surging technological advancement by major market players to reduce environmental impact
Technological advancement is a major factor in the growth of the eco-friendly packaging market. Major market players have focused their efforts on generating innovative technologies for shifting to environmentally friendly packaging solutions for food packaging to reduce environmental impact. For example, Huhtamäki Oyj launched an innovative and recyclable ice cream packaging solution in 2022 based on paper-based technology. This packaging solution is constructed of 95 percent renewable bio-based material. This innovation helps to reduce packaging waste and environmental pollution.
- Governments' initiatives for subsidies for eco-friendly packaging manufacturers
As governments all around the globe are aware of threats associated with environmental issues, several policies have been implemented to encourage eco-friendly packaging manufacturers. Favorable government policies allowing subsidies to packaging manufacturers, particularly in developed nations, create lucrative opportunities for market players to increase their production volume. Under the pressure of these government initiatives, major players have started investing in expanding numerous recycling programs for waste packaging materials released from various commercial units and industries.
- Presence of cost-effective alternative packaging solutions
The high presence of low-cost alternative solutions to eco-friendly packagings, such as paper tape, paper bubble wrap, and corn starch packaging, is expected to act as a major restraining factor for the growth of the eco-friendly packaging market.
- High cost associated with eco-friendly packaging
The high cost of eco-friendly packaging is another major factor limiting the market growth during the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the high cost of recycling processing of packaging materials and fluctuation in the price of raw materials poses. These factors are also the major challenging factor for the growth of the market in the coming years.
