The global flexible plastic packaging market was valued at USD 97.97 Billion in 2016, and is projected to reach USD 131.65 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.2%. The base year considered for the study is 2016 with the market size projected from 2017 to 2022. The primary objective of the study is to define, segment, and project the flexible plastic packaging market size on the basis of type, material, printing technology, application, and region. The study also aims at strategically analyzing micromarkets with respect to individual growth trends, future prospects, and their contribution to the total market. It also provides detailed information about the main factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and industry-specific challenges). In addition to this, the study analyzes competitive developments such as acquisitions, new product launches, expansions & investments, and research & development activities in the flexible plastic packaging market.  

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the market size included the top-down approach. The total market size for flexible plastic packaging was calculated, and accordingly, the percentage was allotted to different sectors in each of the segments, which were done on the basis of extensive primary interviews and secondary research such as IFPG- International Flexible Packaging Group, Flexible Packaging World, Flexible Packaging Magazine, and Flexible Packaging Consultants. Primary research involved in this report includes extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primary respondents is depicted in the figure below.

MarketsandMarkets projects that the flexible plastic packaging market size will grow from USD 102.19 Billion in 2017 to USD 131.65 Billion by 2022, at an estimated CAGR of 5.2%. The flexible plastic packaging market is expected to witness a high growth due to factors such as an increase in middle-class population, growth in demand from the food & beverage and healthcare sectors, and preference for convenient packaging.

This report has been segmented on the basis of type, material, printing technology, application, and region. On the basis of material, the plastic films segment, which is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, held the largest share in 2016. On the basis of printing technology, the flexography segment accounted for the largest share in 2016, while the food & beverage segment dominated the applications of flexible plastic packaging in 2016. Both these subsegments are projected to grow at the highest rates between 2017 and 2022, in their respective segments.

In terms of value, the stand-up pouches segment was accounted for the largest market share and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to pouches as they are among those innovative forms of flexible plastic packaging that help in terms of their ease of use and portability. Stand-up pouches offer many features such as zipper re-closure, pour spouts, slider closures, release valves, and strong shelf presence. They also provide high clarity and excellent barrier properties to the product enclosed within.

In terms of value, the plastic films segment, by material, accounted for the largest market share and is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is due to its application in almost all types of packaging variables, as it offers good visibility to the product and provides secure & attractive packaging. Plastic films are also used as raw materials to manufacture flexible plastic, which is widely used in the packaging sector as it is durable, clean, lightweight, transparent, and cost-effective.

Under the application, the food & beverages sector is projected to grow at the highest rate due to the high demand for food & beverages packaging as it offers durability, product protection, and extends the shelf life of the product. Flexible plastic packaging for food & beverage products reduces the possibility of product contamination. It also protects products from moisture, gas, light, and temperature.

Flexible Packaging Market

In 2016, the Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share in the total market for flexible plastic packaging, in terms of value, followed by North America and Europe, owing to manufacturers’ focus on developing low-cost flexible plastic packaging options. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to register the highest growth during the forecast period; this is attributed to the large customer base for FMCG products and consumer durables, due to the growth in population in countries of this region; this, in turn, is expected to lead to the growth of the flexible plastic packaging market. The flexible plastic packaging market in the North American region is developed and matured; the markets in the U.S. and Canada are projected to grow the highest rates from 2016 to 2022.

High initial capital investments has caused an unfavorable impact on the profitability of the packaging industry. The global flexible plastic packaging market is dominated by players such as Amcor Limited (Australia), Bemis Company, Inc. (U.S.), Constantia Flexibles Group GmbH (Austria), Sealed Air Corporation (U.S.), Huhtamδki Oyj (Finland), Coveris Holdings S.A. (U.S.), Sonoco Products Company (U.S.), Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (U.S.), Mondi Group (Austria), Reynolds Group Holdings (New Zealand), and Reynolds Group Holdings (Netherlands). These players adopted various strategies such as acquisitions, new product launches, and expansions to cater to the needs of the flexible plastic packaging market.
