Global FMCG Packaging Market to Reach US$ 901.2 Billion by 2027, Facilitated by Continual Product Innovations

Published on Oct 21, 2022

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “FMCG Packaging Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global FMCG packaging market size reached US$ 672.5 Billion in 2021. Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) packaging is used to contain, pack, and preserve FMCG products, such as beverages, processed foods, vegetables, fruits, toiletries, over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, and other consumables. It facilitates the safe storage and transportation of goods while protecting the packaged contents from damage due to exposure to the sun, dust, temperature changes, and contaminants. It also inhibits the growth of microorganisms, minimizes the risk of tampering, and preserves the hygroscopic nature of the product. In addition, it provides a surface for printing crucial product-related information, such as manufacturing and expiry date, storage instructions, ingredients, and warnings. As a result, FMCG packaging has gained immense traction across the globe to ensure product safety, improve aesthetics, and enhance user convenience.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.                                       

Global FMCG Packaging Market Trends:

FMCG packaging assists manufacturers in maintaining the quality of goods, ensuring longer shelf life, and marketing their brand through personal packaging. This has led to the widespread adoption of protective packaging materials across various industries, including pharmaceuticals, personal care, and food and beverages (F&B), which represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Additionally, several key players are developing high-quality, innovative packaging solutions to meet evolving consumer demands. For instance, the introduction of attractive and personalized packaging that effectively communicates and advertises brand identity and products has catalyzed market growth. Besides this, the rising penetration of online retail and e-commerce channels for purchasing essential products, especially amid the sudden coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and the consequent implementation of mandatory lockdowns, has augmented the demand for FMCG packaging. Furthermore, with the escalating demand for nutritional foods, FMCG packaging companies are leveraging modern technologies to launch advanced product variants that help maintain freshness, preserve nutritional value, and ensure food safety. In line with this, the increasing adoption of recyclable pouches and aluminum cans for beverages due to their lightweight, stackable, strong, and sustainable nature is positively influencing the market growth. Other factors, including the growing environmental consciousness, surging demand for small-sized and convenient packaged products, ongoing strategic collaborations between key players, continual product innovations, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 901.2 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 4.70% during 2022-2027.
