A new report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the flexible lidstock packaging.
“One trend affecting this market is the increasing popularity of small serving sizes," says the report's analyst. The focus on health, convenience, and environmental sustainability among consumers is growing worldwide. For example, concern among consumers about the effect of portion sizes on the overall intake of calories and its impact on their weight is increasing, which is, in turn, leading customers to reconsider the portion size of their meals.
According to the report, one driver influencing this market is the growing demand for MAP in flexible packaging. Modified-atmosphere packaging (MAP) is also known as atmospheric protective packaging and reduced oxygen packaging. It helps to maintain the nutritional and visual appeal of the less processed and fresh food to extend their shelf life, without using chemical preservatives.
Further, the report states that one challenge affecting this market is the stringent government regulations on the reduction of packaging waste. The flexible food packaging market is growing rapidly because of the growing demand for convenient packaging from customers. However, the growth of the flexible packaging market is accompanied by a similar increase in global concerns regarding waste disposal and plastic recycling, which are also rising rapidly.
