Flexible Packaging is any package or part of a package whose shape can be readily modified. It is used for consumer products and industrial applications to protect the market and distribute a wide array of products. The flexible packaging market is expected to grow from USD 223.544 billion in 2018 to USD 287.717 billion in 2024 at a CAGR of 4.30%. By volume, the market is estimated to grow from 104.744 million tonnes in 2018 to 143.611 million tonnes in 2024. The market growth is driven by its cost-effectiveness. Flexible packaging requires less raw material and energy to manufacture. This kind of packaging increases the shelf life of the products, especially food items. It is convenient to use and is suitable for diverse product categories which are expected to further drive the market growth. However, stringent regulations regarding the raw material and recyclability are expected to be a restraint for market growth. By material, plastic is expected to have a significant market share as it provides secure packaging and good visibility of the product. By application, food and beverage are estimated to have a considerable growth rate as flexible packaging extends the shelf life of the product. By geography, the Asia Pacific market is expected to have a significant market share owing to the large consumer base for FMCG products in the region.
