The flexible packaging market is aided by the continuously increasing demand from end-use industries such as personal care, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and food and beverages. According to the report, the healthcare industry accounts for the maximum demand from the flexible packaging market in the last couple of years. Furthermore, the food and beverages industry will significantly contribute to the expansion of the market in the foreseeable future. Initiatives adopted by the pharmaceutical industry for the maintenance of hygiene and retention of medical properties in drugs will give an incredible thrust to the flexible packaging market in the pharmaceutical industry, which is expected to reach US$11.09 billion in 2019, as per the study.
The key materials used in flexible packaging, such as PVC, paper, aluminum, polyamide, polypropylene, and polyethylene, makes it durable and lightweight. It is due to such aesthetic packaging materials that flexible packaging has created a niche market, which is helped massively by steadily rising consumer demand. Owing to durability and cost-effectiveness, the use of plastics has been dominant in the flexible packaging industry. Plastic accounted for an extensive 70% of the global flexible packaging market in 2012. However, intensifying environmental concerns and government initiatives to curb carbon emissions have propagated increased demand for biodegradable packaging instead, which is likely to boost the demand for cellulose in forthcoming years. Cellulose packaging delivers high durability and protection against external factors such as sunlight. Such factors will significantly aid the development of the flexible packaging market in the next four to five years.
