The global need for flexible packaging material is increasing rapidly, owing to developments in packaging technologies. Furthermore, flexible packaging has grown in favour among consumers since it is a cost-effective solution to storage difficulties, reduces product waste, and keeps food safe and healthy. Flexible packaging has also been boosting demand in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries since it provides them with a sustainable and recyclable polymer-based alternative. Customizability, safety assurance, reusability, transparency, and reliability are some of the other aspects that are currently driving the industry.
In the forecast period, the flexible plastic packaging market would be propelled by the growing food sector. The pandemic boosted the food sector, with people storing up on bulk goods and supermarkets, ordering more food online, and increasing demand for packaged meals.
