According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Modified Atmosphere Packaging Market Report by Material (Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol, Polyethylene, Oriented Polyethylene Terephthalate, Polyamide, and Others), Technology (Tray-Sealer Machine, Horizontal and Vertical Flow Packaging Machine, Deep-Drawing Machine, Vacuum Chamber Machine, Bag-Sealing Machine, and Others), Packaging Gases (Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, and Others), Application (Dairy Products, Poultry, Bakery and Confectionary, Seafood and Meat Products, Convenience Food, Fruits and Vegetables, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global modified atmosphere packaging market reached a value of US$ 15.9 Billion in 2023. 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.

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. Moreover, the recent coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak has intensified the product demand due to the shifting consumer preferences toward hygienic, freshly packaged and quality food. This, in turn, is positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, including rising consumer expenditure capacities, the introduction of easy-to-handle and convenient food packaging solutions, and the implementation of various government initiatives regarding food safety regulations, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 24.6 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% during 2024-2032.
