Vacuum Packaging Market in Europe 2017-2021

About Vacuum Packaging

Vacuum packaging is a method in which air is removed from a container/package before sealing. The method is a way of extending the shelf life of products, especially food products. By removing or decreasing the levels of oxygen, the ability of aerobic microorganisms to grow is impeded. The lack of oxygen also reduces the amount of spoilage due to oxidation. The market for ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (EVOH) is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period due to its advantages such as superior barrier against oxygen.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the vacuum packaging market in Europe to grow at a CAGR of 3.80% during the period 2017-2021.
