Published:  Jul 2022 Report Code: KSI061613601 Pages: 116

The global frozen food packaging market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.47% to reach a market size of US$33.082 billion in 2027 from US$24.366 billion in 2020.

The growth in urbanization has paved the way for a surge in the disposable income of individuals and increased their spending power. However, their corporate and work lives have become harder, as they have to put in more effort at work. This has resulted in a majority of working-class individuals having less time to cook proper and traditional foods at home and shifting their consumption preference towards frozen food products.

The changing lifestyle, taste, and preferences of individuals has resulted in an increased demand for different types of convenience foods, which is causing a surge in the demand for frozen food packaging solutions

In addition, as the number and the participation of female workers have increased in corporate jobs at different levels, the consumption of frozen items has risen significantly, which has resulted in a rise in the demand for frozen food packaging solutions and thus is augmenting the market growth.

The governments of many countries, such as India, the UK, and the US, have imposed lockdowns, thus hindering the free movement of individuals except for purchasing essential products such as food and beverages or daily requirements, to control the spread of disease, effectively. This has resulted in a majority of individuals shifting their food consumption choices to frozen food items such as frozen dairy products, meat, and seafood products instead of fresh products owing to the extended shelf life the former products offer. Hence, this is leading to an increased demand for frozen food packaging solutions and is contributing to market growth.

Guidelines and restrictions are in place that regulate the packaging process and proper storage of packaged foods.

There are strict guidelines and regulations that the market players must adhere to ensure food quality assurance. There are some materials, such as special composite materials and films, that have adequate barrier properties and sealing properties that must be used to prevent soiling, microorganism infestation, moisture, and other contaminants that can deteriorate the quality of the food.

Moreover, there are strict labelling requirements that need to be adhered to, such as the additional information that must be printed on the packaging material for the reference of the consumer or other end-users. Some of these necessary guidelines include- the date of manufacturing and the best before date, the temperature the product needs to be stored to prevent spoilage, and labelling that mentions whether the product is flash-frozen, deep-frozen, etc. among other essential information.

Thus, these regulations encourage market players to adhere to them strictly to prevent losses or penalties and thereby contribute to the growth of the market.

 Major Market Players' Product Offerings in the Frozen Food Packaging MarketSpace

In addition, the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness a substantial increase in its market share over the forecast period, which is attributable to the fact that there are increasing investments and initiatives being taken to improve the standing of the packaging industry in countries such as India. In addition, the rising disposable income and increasing consumption of meat and poultry items are increasing the demand for frozen foods and other types of convenience foods.

Trays,  bags, and pouches hold a considerable share and will witness significant growth over the forecast period.

Trays are an increasingly popular packaging solution, which is used for the packing of frozen foods such as frozen poultry meat, frozen red meat, seafood, and fruits and vegetables. It is expected to hold a considerable share over the forecast period because the consumption of meat is growing among the population owing to the changing tastes and preferences of individuals.

In addition, the bags and pouches are also gaining popularity among the frozen food packing companies and manufacturers, as there has been an increase in the demand for ready-to-cook foods such as French fries, burger patties, and other types of frozen food, which is pushing them to witness significant growth over the forecast period.
