Market Definition

Thermoform trays are developed to help farmers to meet increased agricultural demand on a sustainable basis. Thermoform trays boost crop yield and its value, which positively affects farm productivity. Agricultural biostimulant comprises of multiple amalgamations of chemicals, substances, and micro-organisms that are added to the plants or soils to boost crop vigor, production, sensitivity to abiotic pressure, and quality. They support the growth and production of crops throughout the entire crop life cycle, from seed germination to plant maturity, in a variety of demonstrated ways, such as regulating plant metabolism. They are developed for farmers to meet the demand for sustainable agriculture, including quality and improved crop yield, and even for the consumers to meet the demand for organic products so as to cope with health and safety standards. Thus, due to this, investors are increasingly interested in the biostimulant category with respect to the significant growth potential.

Global Thermoform Trays Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:

Drivers

  • Growing E-Commerce Industry

Thermoform packaging products involve several plastic packaging products used in industries for finished packaging goods. They have high strength and are available in different shapes and sizes, increasing their demand in the market. They are easily sealable, which prevents damage to items in trays that are made from thermoform material, giving protection to finished goods in transit.

In the e-commerce industry, high-quality packaging is essential so that the goods should reach the customers' hands without any distortion in their quality. E-commerce and courier service have also increased with the increase in online shopping apps, medical stores, and online retail stores, leading to increased use of different types of thermoform packaging products for pharmaceutical and personal care electronic items. In addition, several electronic stores have shifted to the digital platform, due to which the packaging in consumer electronics has increased. Several manufacturers of packaging products analyze the demand for finished goods on digital media and produce accordingly. Moreover, the increasing trend of online food delivery sites is expected to boost market growth.

For instance,

  • In June 2019, according to Forbes, the online food delivery market was estimated to reach USD 34.31 billion in 2017, and by 2030 it is estimated that the market will reach USD 90.95 billion due to rapid urbanization and fast-paced lifestyle

Therefore, increasing e-commerce services and growth in the e-commerce industry will increase the demand for thermoform trays in several sectors, which is expected to drive market growth.

  • Increasing Demand for Packaged Food among Working Class Population

The rising demand for packaged food among the working-class population is a significant factor expected to drive market growth. Thermoform trays have become an essential part of food product packaging. Convenient and time-saving meal options are becoming more and more necessary as more people lead busy lives. Packaged food offers a practical alternative by providing ready-to-eat or easy-to-prepare meals that need minimal effort and time. Thermoform trays are critical in preserving the safety, freshness, and mobility of these packaged foods.

Thermoform trays are highly secured packaging products as lids do not distort goods during transit. In addition, the covers are tightly sealed, which does not allow any material to pass into food products, which ensures food products' safety. In the food and packaging industry, the use of thermoform trays is increasing as it helps to increase the shelf life of the products and is also used for storage.

Furthermore, thermoform trays offer convenience in terms of handling and consumption. They are lightweight and easy to transport, making them ideal for busy people. The trays can be easily opened, reheated, and discarded after use, making meals easier for consumers.

For instance,

  • In August 2018, according to SouthPack Packaging article, thermoform packaging is a strong, resilient, and tamper-resistant packaging alternative. This provides protection not just during shipping and transportation but also a variety of sealing solutions that can help to extend the shelf life of the goods

Thus, the increasing demand for packaged food in the food and beverage industry will increase the demand for thermoform trays, which is expected to drive market growth.

Restraint

  • Environmental Concerns and Plastic Wastes

The growing environmental concerns regarding plastic waste are one of the major restraints for market growth. Thermoform trays are made of plastic, which adds to the increasing issue of plastic pollution. Plastic trays wind up in landfills, oceans, and other natural areas due to improper disposal and a lack of recycling options, harming wildlife and ecosystems. The slow decomposition rate of plastic exacerbates the issue, as it can take several years for thermoform trays to break down. Furthermore, the large production volume of single-use thermoform trays limits resources and increases energy usage.

Therefore, consumers are becoming increasingly aware of plastic and various plastic materials that have harmful effects on the environment. This has made consumers' now more concerned about the environmental implications of plastic. The used plastic and its waste is critically harming the environment as the recycling rates for plastics are very low compared to other counterpart materials.

For instance,

  • In October 2022, according to the NPR, the percentage of recycled plastic that is actually used to create new products has reached new lows of only 5%, which is expected to drop further. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastic Economy Project has set goals for the recycling rate of plastic, which must be at least 30%

Challenge

  • Stringent Regulations Regarding Plastic Use and Disposal

The rising concern about the use of plastic in the manufacturing process of thermoform trays has led to strict rules and regulations. As consumer demand for safe and sustainable products increases, governments have implemented stringent rules and regulations to ensure environmental safety, quality, and protection. This imposition of various stringent regulations on the use of thermoform trays, with rising environmental concerns related to toxicity issues, is expected to pose a major challenge to market growth.

These guidelines and laws cover the use of specific raw materials in the manufacturing of thermoform trays. In addition, the rules and regulations made for the use of polyurethanes, such as polyurethane foams, are expected to restrain market growth.

For instance,

  • In June 2020, according to Medical Plant News, packaging solutions should include ISO 11607 for the packaging of medical products. It is designed to improve protection and preserve tough sterilization conditions

Thermoform Trays Market

Opportunity

  • Increase in the R&D of Thermoform Trays

There has been a rise in the R&D of thermoform trays in recent years. The increased demand for trays for packaging in different industries, including medicines, food & beverage, and electronics, has increased the demand for R&D of thermoform trays. The demand for improved product protection, shelf life, and cost-effective packaging solutions is increasing. The industrial shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly packaging encourages investment in R&D activities. In addition, researchers are finding ways to develop new sustainable materials for thermoform trays, improve recyclability, and reduce waste of thermoform trays materials.

For instance,

  • In November 2022, Amcor plc created a material that combines the benefits of trays, foams, and liners into a single product known as Amcor HealthCare Ortho Secure Thermoform trays that avoids the risk of abrasion and keeps the medical devices intact. Such trays also lower the packaging's carbon footprint as it does not consist of materials such as sleeves, liners, and foams
