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. Although many countries are fast adapting to the growing need for recyclability, it is a complex process to recycle the laminate structures, as there are multiple materials involved.

Key Findings:

  • Most standardized flexible packaging commodities like sheets, films, and foils are sourced globally and converted flexible packaging products like bags and pouches are sourced regionally.
  • In developed regions, suppliers prefer engaging for a medium-long term (6 months–1 year). Whereas, in developing regions, the suppliers prefer engaging with a buyer for 1–2 years.
  • Due to the high barrier properties, high-barrier films and laminate structures are gaining prominence to increase shelf-life of products.
  • Use of multi-laminate structures with superior functionality, aesthetics, and eco-friendly composition have given flexible packaging products an edge over other packaging forms.
  • Fluctuating resin prices and the rise in the cost of labor in regions like North America and China may increase the overall costs of flexible packaging by 1-2 percent.
  • Pouches are preferred over rigid packaging formats, as they are 23 percent lighter and use 60 percent less plastic, thereby being sustainable and economical.

The research methodology adopted for the report included:

  • Experts with twenty years of domain experience
  • Interaction with buyers
  • Inputs from supply chain partners

Growing consumer awareness for sustainable and environmental-friendly alternatives have bolstered the growth of flexible packaging formats made of bio-degradable material like corn, and starch/potato-based resins to petroleum alternatives, which reduces carbon footprint by 10 percent or more.
