Nano-enabled packaging for food and beverages has gained immense popularity in the global market, thanks to the sterility and safety it provides to food items by controlling microbial development, enhancing tamper visibility, and impeding oxidation. The rising demand for food and beverage items across the world has increased the application of nano-enabled packaging significantly. Analysts expect this trend to continue in the forthcoming years.
Asia Pacific Leads Global Market for Nano-enabled Packaging for Food and Beverages
The key regional markets for nano-enabled packaging for food and beverages are Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and the Rest of the World. Asia Pacific has been dominating the overall market since the last few years. Japan has acquired the leading position in the Asia Pacific market for food and beverages nano-enabled packaging.
The markets in Europe and North America are also projected to maintain a steady rise during the next few years. The U.S. leads the nano-enabled packaging for food and beverages market in North America while the U.K. dominates the European market.
Intelligent Packaging Technology Gains Impetus from Rising Demand
Active packaging and intelligent packaging are the two prime nano-enabled packaging technologies utilized for the packaging of food and beverages. Major suppliers of food and beverages in the global arena are preferring intelligent packaging over active packaging, as consumers are mostly attracted towards those packaging, which offers information about the product. The growing demand for intelligent packaging in the food and beverages industry, particularly for fruits, is driving the growth of this market segment significantly.
Honeywell International Inc., Klöckner Pentaplast Group, Sonoco Products Co., Bemis Co. Inc., DuPont Teijin Films, BASF SE, Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. LLC, Tetra Pak International S.A., Sealed Air Corp., and Amcor Ltd. are some of the major companies functional in this market.
