India Retort Pouches Market to Reach US$ 54.0 Million by 2027, Spurred by the Expanding F&B Industry

Published on Nov 16, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “India Retort Pouches Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the India retort pouches market size reached US$ 29.6 Million in 2021. Retort pouches are heat-resistant flexible packages in which prepared food is sealed for long-term unrefrigerated storage. They are made of various materials, including polypropylene, polyethylene, polyamide, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), aluminum foil, and nylon. These pouches are used to pack rice, sauces, soups, pasta, ready-to-eat meals, and cook-in-a-bag meals, which are sealed and sterilized at a maximum temperature of 121°C to prevent the contents from spoilage. They also provide various benefits such as strength/toughness, puncture resistance, flexibility, heat-sealed surface, protection from abrasion, lights, odor, and gases, retained flavors, and extended shelf life. Owing to these properties, retort pouches are extensively utilized in food and beverage (F&B), pharmaceutical, and personal care industries across the globe.

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.
