Growing demand for ready-to-eat and convenient food products

Self-heating food packaging is a form of active packaging with the ability and function to heat food contents without an external power source. In recent year’s food and beverage industry has evolved its packaging techniques due to the growing consumers' demand for ready-to-eat and convenient food products with a longer shelf life.

The demand for self-heating packaging solutions in the region is estimated to grow primarily due to the increasing availability of newer products and budding regulations regarding the food items available in the market.

Furthermore, there is a sharp rise in the demand for organic foods in the region, as it is being perceived by the population to be healthier, and due to the increasing focus by the local government to control obesity in the countries like Canada and the United States through education campaigns and new food nutrition laws promoting organic foods, especially for children.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Self-Heating Food Packaging Films Market

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the halting of major industries and production processes. This led to a disruption in major supply and production lines, leading to the decline in the economy and revenue of other major sectors. The self-heating food packaging market also faced a significant decline in demand, owing to the closure of offline markets and stores. However, some regional markets like China reported an increase in demand for self-heating food products. Owing to the increase in infection cases in the region, the demand for ready-made and easy-to-cook meals increased, leading to an increase in demand for the self-heating food packaging market. Moreover, owing to the introduction of new products and technology, and the withdrawal of COVID-19 lockdowns, the market is expected to increase in demand.
