The global agricultural packaging market was at USD 3.53 billion in 2021 and is foreseen to reach USD 5.32 billion by 2026, developing with a CAGR of 5.14%. The agricultural advantages related with these packaging solutions are the significant factors contributing to the expansion of this industry worldwide.
Agricultural packaging is the process of protecting and containing the product for use in storage, distribution, sale and use. Agricultural packaging plays a very important role in preventing product spoilage in order to reduce risks during handling and transportation. It is widely applicable for pesticide and fertilizer packaging for better sealing and escalating the shelf life of products. Agricultural packaging is important because it preserves the original properties of agri-food products that remain packaged to preserve them and protect them from damage when transported to grocery store shelves. It is very important in the short and long term for business purposes to deliver fresh produce shipped in the most cost-effective manner.
As the coronavirus pandemic has spread and its humanitarian impact has escalated, industries that help meet basic needs, such as safely providing necessary food and supplies for consumers, are highly affected. As food packaging is the largest business area in the packaging industry, the worldwide $ 900 billion annually industry is at the forefront. The coronavirus crisis has already caused some of the biggest declines in recent times in call for certain types of packaging while accelerating the expansion of others, such as e-commerce shipping packaging emerging as rescue buoys in this new world. These changes present many packaging companies with a new set of challenges.
New food packaging materials from agro-industrial waste. EcoBioCAP has enabled the production of fully manufactured packaging materials by converting food industry waste and by-products into packaging components.
The government approves other polymer bags to wrap food grains. The government has allowed the packaging of food grains in polymeric bags due to the closure of jute factories during the current closure.
Agricultural Packaging Market Trends:
The global agricultural packaging market is a relatively small sector of the industrial packaging market. Significant development has been observed in the packaging of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Regulatory guidelines and R&D are the main factors that have driven the expansion of this market. The application of PET and HDPE plastics for containment of pesticides has revolutionized the agrochemical packaging industry. The escalating need for efficient storage and transportation of pesticides and fertilizers and the rising call for a longer shelf life of these products are the drivers of the constant expansion of this market.
Agricultural Packaging Market Drivers:
The growing awareness of loss in transit of food products to local and worldwide markets are the main factors likely to drive expansion in the global agricultural packaging market. In addition, agricultural packaging provides oxygen and a moisture barrier, escalating shelf life are the other main factors supposed to drive the expansion of the worldwide agricultural packaging market during the projection period. In addition, escalating urbanization coupled with continued population expansion around the world is the main factor likely to drive the expansion of the worldwide industry.
The agricultural packaging market is driven by growing awareness of food product depletion during harvesting and shipping to local and worldwide markets. Also, escalating urbanization coupled with continued population expansion around the world is predicted to put enormous pressure on worldwide food production, leading to high call for efficient and cost-effective agricultural packaging solutions. Agricultural packaging provides oxygen and a moisture barrier that increases the shelf life of agricultural products, which is likely to boost the agricultural packaging market during the envisioned period. Today, there is a growing call for agricultural packaging equipped with control equipment that can be employed to control the quality of any product, as well as to adjust the temperature.
Agricultural Packaging Market Restraints:
The main factors limiting the expansion of the agricultural packaging market are observed volatility in raw material prices and recycling of employed and discarded packaging materials. Plastics, for example, are made primarily from petroleum and crude oil.
Opportunities in the Agricultural Packaging Market:
Awareness of the loss of food products during harvesting and shipping in the worldwide marketplace is significantly driving the call for sustainable and profitable agricultural packaging solutions. Growing cases of pest attacks are stimulating the use of various chemicals for crop protection, which in turn increases the call for agricultural packaging solutions for agrochemicals.
Challenges in the Agricultural Packaging Market:
Oil price fluctuations are so high that the industry faces a great challenge to balance the prices of packaging products. The recycling of packaging waste has been a challenge in the industrial packaging industry, and even more so for agrochemical packaging due to the containment of dangerous chemicals inside.
Agricultural Packaging Market Segmentation:
The application of pouches and bags in agrochemical containers has escalated in terms of dry/solid formulations of fertilizers and pesticides, since these provide greater security against transport losses in a sustainable way.
By barrier strength:
The market for agricultural packaging, in terms of barrier resistance, was dominated by medium strength materials.
Agricultural Packaging Market Regional Analysis:
The Agricultural Packaging Market Report includes the segmentation of below regions:
Middle East & Africa
Asia-Pacific is foreseen to account for the largest market share in 2021, followed by North America in the agricultural packaging market. The growing business opportunities for agrochemicals around the world, especially in countries such as China, India, the United States and Canada, are the main factors contributing to the great expansion opportunities in these regions. Agricultural packaging for fertilizers is predicted to drive the expansion rate in Europe, as growth in the region has been severely hampered by increased regulations on the use of chemical pesticides and the maximum residue limit. The Asia-Pacific regional market accounted for the largest share of worldwide revenue during the review period, due to huge agrochemical manufacturing capacity and growing call for fresh produce packaging in countries. The European market is supposed to register the fastest expansion rate in terms of income, due to the growing preference for the consumption of fresh and nutritious food in the fruit sector in the countries of the region. In addition, the markets of Latin America, the Middle East and Africa are likely to post a moderate expansion rate during the forecast period. The agricultural packaging market in North America and Europe is predicted to show linear expansion throughout the foreseen period, as this market has reached relative maturity and is predicted to lose a significant portion of its market share to the Asia Pacific. Leading manufacturers operating in established agricultural packaging markets anticipate economic expansion of APAC markets by efficiently using the resources of India and other developing countries at a reasonable pace.
