Long shelf-life container

Long shelf-life container

The thermoformed rigid plastic container industry is growing each year. It already covers a wide range of applications, from single-serve cups to multi use containers. It is highly driven by light-weighing, sustainability, and product differentiation.

But the real challenge comes with the barrier performances for such packages, when applied for replacement / conversion of metal and glass. To fill this void, we wish to introduce high barrier but light weight containers in multilayer polypropylene and HIPS having properties like:

Packaging for frozen foods
Suitable for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP)
Retort grade
High oxygen, WVTR, odor and gas barrier properties.

The high barrier product market for food packaging is expected to record a CAGR of 5.9% from 2021 to 2028 to reach $30.8 billion by 2028.

The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the inclination towards case-ready packaging products, rising need for high barrier packaging films for longer shelf-life, growing consumer concerns for food wastage reduction, and growing demand from the meat industry.

Moreover, the growing demand for biodegradable high barrier packaging films is expected to create lucrative opportunities. However, susceptibility to degradation is expected to hinder the growth of the high barrier films market for food packaging to some extent.

Moreover, this segment is also expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast period. The fastest growth of this segment is mainly attributed to the higher incomes and urbanization, rising consumption of processed meat products, growing global consumption of fish, and increasing consumer preference for protein-rich food products.

The large share of this region is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for processed food products; strong growth in the food & beverage industry due to increasing urbanization, growing health awareness, and rising disposable income levels; development of the cold chain systems.
