Top 6 Food Packaging Companies in the World

The global food packaging market reached US$ 385.1 Billion in 2023. The market is primarily driven by the escalating sales of ready-to-eat (RTE) food items due to changing consumer dietary preferences. Moreover, the expanding working population with busy schedules, hectic lifestyles, and inflating expenditure capacities is further contributing to the growing consumption of fast food. Besides this, the rising adoption of food packaging as a modern branding and marketing tool and as a medium for conveying essential information to consumers, such as the nutritional content, expiration and manufacturing date, and price of packaged products, is propelling the market growth. 

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top food packaging companies are introducing innovative packaging solutions that prolong the shelf life of packaged products. They are also offering lightweight product variants to lower transportation costs and related emissions. Furthermore, the leading manufacturers are developing eco-friendly packaging options, including thermoplastics and bio-based plastics, produced using sustainable materials that can be easily recycled, reused, and renewed. This, coupled with the advent of novel packaging technologies, such as active, intelligent, and bioactive packaging that enables flexible packaging, extends the lifespan, preserves quality, and maintains the freshness of food items, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Besides this, the launch of anti-microbial food packaging solutions, extensive investments in research and development (R&D) activities, and continual technological advancements are other factors propelling the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 611.6 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
