Flexible Packaging Market

Market Segmentation:

Flexible Packaging Market

Flexible Packaging Market – By Type:

  • Stand-Up Pouches
  • Flat Pouches
  • Gusseted Bags
  • Wicketed Bags
  • Wraps
  • Rollstock

Stand-up pouches and pillow pouches are the most widely used flexible packaging products. Pillow pouches will witness high gains because of their increasing usage in the food & beverages and dairy industry. Low cost, high sealing ability, and cost-efficient transportation are some of the key properties responsible for the growth of the market. High barrier properties against moisture and oxygen coupled with low material usage and cost-effective properties will fuel the stand-up pouches demand. 

Flexible Packaging Market – By Material:

  • Plastic Films
  • Paper
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Bioplastics

Polymers were one of the major contributing materials, accounting for a major share of this market segment. Durability and cost-effectiveness make the product highly demanding among users. Rising environmental concerns and stringent government regulations regarding CO2 emission may drive the industry towards more eco-friendly and biodegradable materials including cellulosic and bioplastics. Recent innovations in shale gas, growing PE film usage, and reducing PE resin cost will further boost the polyethylene flexible packaging demand. A high moisture barrier, good low-temperature performance, high durability as well as ability to seal without any coating are some properties influencing material penetration. 

Flexible Packaging Market – By Printing Technology:

  • Flexography
  • Rotogravure
  • Digital Printing
  • Other Printing Technologies

Digital printing technology is widely used in this industry to serve the purpose of labeling on flexible packaging. Rising consumer demand for processed and packed food items and shifting preference for aesthetically appealing products will fuel the flexible packaging market demand. Increasing extended shelf life requirements along with preservation from contamination open new avenues for industry growth in the food and beverages and healthcare sector. The healthcare segment is projected to register the highest growth rate in this market segment due to the rising disposable income accompanied by regulatory support.

Flexible Packaging Market – By Application:

  • Promote
  • Food and Beverages
  • Healthcare
