  • Ready meals
  • Meat products and seafood

Global specialty and high-performance packaging film market for ready meals

The global specialty and high-performance packaging film market for ready is expected to exceed USD 13 billion by 2020. Ready meals include pasta, noodles, soups, and sauces. These meals are mainly consumed by working professionals and students due to their busy lifestyle. Technavio research shows that the demand for these meals is high in Europe, especially in the UK. Polyethylene and polypropylene are mainly used for the lamination of ready meals.

The sauces, dressings, and condiments market is expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast period as sauces, dressings, and condiments are used as vital ingredients to improve flavor in food products which augurs well for the packaging market. According to Sharan Raj, a lead analyst at Technavio for plastics, polymers, and elastomers research, “The market in APAC is expected to grow significantly due to the growing demand from China and Japan.”

The US is the largest market for soup packaging. Vendors in this market are investing and implementing advanced packaging solutions. For instance, Sonoco introduced a new plastic can TrueVue in December 2015. Made by Sonoco’s Fusion Freshlock Technology, TrueVue is a transparent, multilayer can that can withstand high-pressure and high-temperature conditions.

Global specialty and high-performance packaging film market for meat products and seafood

The global specialty and high-performance packaging film market for meat products and seafood is expected to exceed USD 8 billion by 2020. Among specialty and high-performance films, barrier packaging films are used to package meat products and seafood. “Barrier films are used to create vacuum packaging, which helps in maintaining an optimum atmosphere and hence ensuring extended shelf life of the products, without compromising the flavor or texture. These films are mainly used to package processed meat products and seafood,” says Sharan.

Globally, there is an increase in the demand for seafood. According to World Bank, it is expected that by 2030, 70% of the demand for seafood will come from APAC. This is expected to increase the demand for specialty and high-performance films. Flexible films and rigid plastic containers are the most common materials used for packaging seafood.

Global specialty and high-performance packaging film market for fruits and vegetables

The global specialty and high-performance packaging film market for fruits and vegetables is expected to reach USD 4 billion by 2020. The fruits and vegetables segment has experienced the highest growth rate in the food product market compared to other segments.

As a result of the growing health consciousness among people worldwide, they are focusing more on consuming healthy food such as vegetables and fruits. Flexible packaging films are used to package fruits and vegetables. Vendors offer features in this packaging such as reclosability, easy opening, and portability for the convenience of customers. Flexible heat sealable pouch made of polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polystyrene tray are used to package fruits and vegetables.
