One of the main drivers of the global antimicrobial packaging market is the growing demand for packaged food products. The increase in working women, migration from urban to rural areas, and increased disposable income in developing countries are factors that supply the demand for packaged food. Packaged foods are sometimes preferred to fresh foods because of their quality and hygiene. It also made it convenient and delicious. Additionally, the use of antimicrobial packaging products has improved as consumer health awareness has augmented for products that have a longer shelf life. There is a growing demand for ready-to-eat, minimally processed and efficiently prepared foods. The global antimicrobial packaging market is also driven by increasing demand from the medical industry for a variety of applications. These packaging solutions protect medical equipment, tablets and plastic products from the growth of mold and bacteria. The characteristics of packaged foods, such as easy opening, portability, and easy disposal, make them suitable for antibacterial packaging methods. This is another important factor that is estimated to be driving the growth of the global antimicrobial packaging market. Population growth driven by rising disposable income is leading the market. In addition, the high consumption of packaged foods is driving the market due to the immediate preparation method. Antibacterial packaging is a must-have in the food industry as consumer demand for fresh, preservative-free, and less-processed packaging products increases.

Packaging is important to prolong the shelf life of your products and activate the market. In addition, the growth of the global antimicrobial packaging market is likely to accelerate during the forecast period, with the increase in disposable income of the middle-class population and the growing awareness of the health and fitness of consumers around the world. Also, the growth of infectious diseases through microorganisms in food is foreseen to positively lead the growth of the global antibacterial packaging market. Increasing customer awareness of food spoilage caused by ever-changing weather conditions and preference for ready-to-eat products due to 24-hour work hours and busy lifestyle is expected to accelerate the market growth in the next five years. Food safety is a top priority for manufacturers around the world and is expected to drive the growth of the global antibacterial packaging market.
