Global Foodservice Packaging to Expand at a CAGR of 5.3% Through 2025

The global foodservice packaging market is forecasted to witness healthy growth during the forecast period (2017 to 2025), according to a new market study by XploreMR. The growth of the market is majorly attributed to rising concerns regarding the environment and pollution which are asserting consumers to seek eco-friendly alternatives. Furthermore, market players are adopting novel technologies to reduce costs associated with the production of sustainable packaging solutions. Leveraging consumer demand, manufacturers are opting for alternatives to plastic packaging and are increasing the availability of single-use packaging solutions.

On this premise, newly introduced intuitive dispensing systems are finding significant adoption. Along similar lines, the introduction of sustainable dispensing systems aids in the elimination of wastage associated with cutlery pieces on the back of the adoption of conventional trays. Backed by the aforementioned facets, the global foodservice packaging market is forecasted to progress at an impressive CAGR of 5.3% through the assessment period.

Growing Adoption in Takeaway Foods Remains Crucial to Growth

In the recent past, the takeaway and drive-away culture in the foodservice sector has surged as a result of hectic lifestyles across the world. This has in turn created a demand for food packaging material, and the disposable packaging has been gaining remarkable traction. The rising demand for attributes such as cold-resistance, anti-fogging, and heat-resistance has also contributed to the growth of the market.

Likewise, the expansion of online food delivery has also been a major influence on the growth of the packaging sector in the food industry. Along similar lines, expansion of multinational quick-service restaurants is also boosting demand for disposable packaging over the labor force for cleaning and maintenance. Such factors will continue to fuel the growth of the foodservice packaging market.

Compostable Foodservice Packaging Segment Metamorphoses into a Million Dollar Segment

Introduction of compostable foodservice packaging has been a game-changer to the food-service packaging market and is bestowing a plethora of revenue opportunities to the stakeholders. Owing to increased awareness regarding the adverse environmental effects of plastic usage, the sales of compostable foodservice packaging are surging. On this premise, coupled with technological innovations, the compostable foodservice packaging segment has metamorphosed into a multi-million-dollar industry.

Expansion of quick-service restaurants (QSRs) globally coupled with surging adoption of foodservice disposables is also proving crucial in burgeoning the sales of compostable food packaging. On this premise, compostable trays and cups are expected to hold a sizable share of the manufacturers' bottom lines. Likewise, increased demand for pre-packed food coupled with a growing number of non-chain restaurants has also been fruitful to the global foodservice packaging market. Based on the end-use segment, food service outlets, which currently account for nearly half of market revenue will continue to channel the majority of market revenue, while online food ordering and institutional foodservice rise in value.

Competitive Landscape of Global Foodservice Packaging

Some of the major players operating in the market include Graphic Packaging Holding Company, Smurfit Kappa Group, Be Green Packaging, Southern Champion Tray, LP, Gold Plast SPA, Coveris Holdings S.A. and New WinCup Holdings, Inc. Market players are leveraging revenue opportunities created by an increasing number of QSRs and take-home food brands. Moreover, market players are adopting green packaging concepts to produce recyclable and compostable designs and are targeting stadiums and large cafeterias as potential end-use applications.
