Packaged food refers to convenience food items that are prepared and distributed for consumption. These products can be packed into boxes, plastic containers, and tin cans, depending on their physical forms and textures. Packaging materials offer several benefits, such as barrier and contamination protection, portion control, help retain their shape and quality, prevent spillage and tampering, etc. In addition to this, they also provide a medium for information transmission, such as expiry date, nutritional content, price and origin of the packaged products, etc. Packaged food products are widely available in supermarkets, hypermarkets, online platforms, retail shops, etc.
Packaged Food Market Trends:
The expanding food retail sector coupled with the rising consumption of ready-to-eat food products is primarily driving the global packaged food market. Additionally, the elevating levels of urbanization, changing consumer dietary patterns, and growing working women population are also augmenting the demand for packaged food items, such as baked goods, snacks, dairy products, noodles, etc. Moreover, the introduction of numerous initiatives by regulatory bodies, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to promote the adoption of clean-label, packaged food products without harmful chemical additives is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor. In line with this, the emerging popularity of on-the-go healthy snacks, including meat snacks, cereals, granola bars, etc., is also propelling the market growth. Additionally, numerous key players are investing in R&D activities to enhance product shelf-life and launch anti-microbial packaging materials, thereby positively influencing the global market for packaged food items. They are also focusing on the development of lightweight packaging solutions to reduce transportation costs and harmful carbon emissions. Moreover, the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the increasing sales of packaged food items across online retail platforms, especially during the imposition of stringent lockdown regulations. Apart from this, continuous advancements in the packaging technologies for food products, including the launch of biodegradable, nanofabrication, flexible packaging, etc., are expected to drive the global packaged food market in the coming years.
