Flexible Packaging Materials Market Dynamics
- Rising adoption of the flexible packaging materials
Increased adoption of flexible packaging materials is a major factor driving market growth, as is increased demand for consumer goods, modernized materials and the development of energy-efficient materials, among other factors driving the growth of the flexible packaging materials market. The rise in the retail industry and e-commerce will create new opportunities for the flexible packaging materials market.
- Growing environmental awareness and rapid demand from the food industry
Growing environmental concerns have prompted a pioneering move toward sustainable packaging, which will have an impact on the growth of the flexible packaging materials market from 2022 to 2029. The increasing penetration of automated food manufacturing plants necessitates the use of new packaging systems for hurdle-free packaging of finished products, the ability of flexible packages to conserve resources and reduce environmental pollution, and an increase in online sales volume are some of the factors that are expected to accelerate market growth. On the other hand, rising health and nutrition concerns and strong demand for light packaging to reduce transportation costs will further boost various opportunities that will lead to market growth during the forecast period.
Manufacturers have been encouraged to develop new packaging options as a result of dynamic industry changes such as the implementation of new regulatory initiatives. Growing environmental concerns about the use of biodegradable plastics in flexible packaging have also pushed manufacturers to improve safe and secure sustainable packaging options. Manufacturers are considering sustainable packaging solutions that require fewer materials and energy to manufacture a package, reduce transportation expenses, and offer a longer shelf-life to the product in order to reduce cost pressures and maintain the integrity of product packages.
Higher capital costs are required for the production and import activities for integrated packaging machinery for operations such as wrapping, automated labeling, palletizing materials, and significant others. Such factors are impeding the growth of the packaging machinery industry as a whole. Customs duties imposed in developing countries are also having a negative impact on the overall growth of the packaging machinery industry.
