The Mexico fresh food packaging market is expected to surge at a CAGR of 2.72% throughout the forecast period. The major driver of the Mexico fresh food packaging market is the increasing exports of fresh food products worldwide. According to the OEC, Mexico was the world's leading exporter of tropical fruits ($3.34 billion), other vegetables ($3.12 billion), and tomatoes ($2.62 billion) in 2021. Growing demand for protein-rich food products is another major driver of the Mexico fresh food packaging market. The country is continuously boosting domestic meat production in order to meet the increasing demand for meat products. Factors such as farm vertical integration, biosecurity investments, production chain improvements, and increased efficiency are boosting local food production in the country, which is bolstering the market growth of fresh food packaging in Mexico.  The emerging popularity of the vegan diet will also drive the market growth of fresh food packaging in Mexico during the next five years. The rising focus on organic farming is also attracting people to consume fresh organically-produced food products, which will also continue to fuel the market growth of fresh food packaging in Mexico during the next five years. 

The Mexico Fresh Food Packaging market has been segmented on the basis of material and application. By material, the market has been segmented as plastic, paper and board, glass, and metal. By application, the Mexico fresh food packaging market has been classified into poultry and meat products, dairy products, produce (vegetables and fruits), seafood, and others. By material, the paper and paper board market is poised to grow at a substantial CAGR between 2020 and 2027. This growth is attributed to the rising fruit and vegetable exports to various countries, including the U.S. Moreover, rising online sales of the product further support the growing demand for paper and board for packaging. By application, fruits and vegetables held a significant market share in 2020 and will remain at its position till the end of the forecast period.
