Global Flexible Plastic Packaging Market: About this market

Flexible plastic packaging is non-rigid, lightweight, stretchable, and malleable. Technavio’s flexible plastic packaging market analysis considers sales to the food and beverages, healthcare, and other segments. It also considers sales from the pouches, bags, films, and wraps, and other segments. Our analysis further considers the sales of flexible plastic packaging solutions in APAC, Europe, MEA, North America, and South America. In 2018, the pouches segment held the highest market share, which is expected to remain prevalent over the forecast period. Factors such as their wide use in packaging food products and the availability of various pouches that provide a high degree of resistance toward moisture and germs will significantly help the market segment in maintaining its leading position. Also, our global flexible plastic packaging report has observed market growth factors such as the rising focus on improving the shelf life of products, shift from rigid packaging to flexible plastic packaging, and growing popularity of flexible bioplastic packaging. However, high cost involved in manufacturing flexible plastic packaging, increasing focus on reducing the use of plastic packaging, and stringent regulations on manufacturing flexible plastic packaging may hamper the growth of the flexible plastic packaging industry over the forecast period.
