About packaging and packaging market in MENA

Packaging plays a significant role in the transportation, warehousing, logistics, sales, and end use of a product. It provides adequate support, protection, and tampering resistance to the product. It is also used as a means of attracting customers’ attention to the product. Vendors use sustainable, renewable, and recyclable raw materials, such as paper, rigid plastic, metal, glass, and flexible materials, to manufacture packaging materials.

The packaging market in MENA is very dynamic in nature. The economy of MENA was negatively affected by the Arab Spring, which was started in 2010 in Tunisia, but the economy of the Middle East after four years remains volatile in its growth. However, there are some demographic trends that have positively affected the packaging market in MENA. Urbanization and change in consumer lifestyles, for example, have propelled the demand for packaging solutions that are light in weight and have greater visual appeal. The market has also witnessed a considerable shift in the purchasing patterns of customers, with customers demanding more flexible packaging solutions over rigid packing. Growing demand for dairy products, which has led to an increase in dairy products packaging, has also fueled the growth of the market.

Technavio's analysts forecast the packaging market in MENA to grow at a CAGR of 4.73% in terms of revenue over the period 2014-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Plastic-based flexible packaging is gaining popularity, especially in the food and beverage industry. Plastic-based bottles and flexible packaging products are stealing market share from other packaging materials. The demand for PET bottles, containers, and stand-up pouches is replacing the demand for beverage packaging cartons, especially for products such as milk and juices. Plastic provides more scope for innovation than paper, and therefore is preferred by manufacturers.”

According to the report, the popularity of paperboard packaging is driving the packaging market in MENA. Paperboard packaging includes RFID tags, security printing, tamper-free materials and seals, and holography. The accessibility of paperboard packaging has made it a popular choice. Paperboard can be folded flat, is lightweight and strong, and is built for laser tolerance, which facilitates high-speed machine filling. As 75% of the consumer's decision is made at the POS, retailers prefer goods that come in attractive packaging.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the packaging market is the high cost involved in the production of packaging materials.
