Growing consumer preference for flexible packaging products and rising demand from various end-uses, due to cost and convenience, are the driving factors for the market. Food, beverages, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries support the growth for flexible packaging alternatives, like pouches, sachets, and stick-packs as opposed to traditional packaging formats, like containers, jars, cans, and bottles.
The flexible packaging industry faces challenges in the form of regulations, substitute products, economic conditions, and recyclability.
