Global Modified Atmosphere Packaging Market to Reach US$ 20.73 Billion by 2027, Impelled by the Increasing Demand for Advanced Packaging Solutions Across F&B Sector

Published on Apr 06, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Modified Atmosphere Packaging Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global modified atmosphere packaging market reached a value of US$ 14.20 Billion in 2021. Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) refers to a technique of changing, modifying and adjusting the atmosphere surrounding the product to preserve its contents. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) are some of the commonly used packaging materials. It is widely used for preserving the freshness of various food products, such as meat, fish, fruits and vegetables, coffee roasters, bakery, and confectionery items, by controlling their biochemical metabolism. MAP consists of gasses, such as nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide, that aids in enhancing product quality, amplifying their shelf-life, providing convenience, ensuring freshness, and reducing oxidation and spoilage of perishable products. Furthermore, it assists in reducing waste production and labor costs and improving manufacturing capacities.

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 Modified Atmosphere Packaging Market Trends-

The significant growth in food and beverage (F&B) sector across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market. Modified atmosphere packaging provides the optimal blend of nitrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide to keep the food products fresh. In line with this, the increasing demand for convenience foods and ready-to-eat (RTE) items due to the busy schedules and hectic lifestyles is favoring the market growth. Apart from this, the widespread product utilization to extend shelf life and prevent insects and contamination, while eliminating the use of chemicals, especially for packing organic products is providing a considerable boost to the market growth.
