Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is developments in global retort pouches market. With the constantly varying market conditions, companies are focusing on innovation and the ability to introduce something new to the world to outperform their competitors. Vendors in the global retort pouches market are offering state-of-the-art solutions, which is helping them gain a competitive advantage.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand from developing countries. Developing countries like India and China are largely contributing to the food packaging industry, which is aiding the growth of the global retort pouches market. This is because of an increasing disposable income and urbanization in these countries that are generating the demand for a healthy lifestyle and safe packaging solutions. For instance, in India, the disposable income witnessed a CAGR of more than 10% during 2006-2016. Moreover, in China, more than 50% of the population was living in urban areas in 2016.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high investment involved in processing of retort pouches. Retort pouches require an aseptic processing technique, which further requires high initial investments in the installation of a new packaging equipment. For instance, in 2016, Greatview Aseptic Packaging, an aseptic packaging material and related services provider, invested more than $24 million for the expansion of its German plant by offering state-of-the-art machinery. Also, in 2016, DS Smith, a packaging company, invested approximately $54 million for the development of a new plant and equipment.
