Segment overview

By packaging type

This segment can be divided into the following:

  • Rigid packaging
  • Flexible packaging

Flexible packaging has the largest market share of all of the sub-segments in this segment. The reason is that it makes it easier and safer to transport packaged foodstuffs long distances. It also helps keep the foods fresher and more palatable for longer while being transported.

Flexible packaging also tends to be resealable. This extends the shelf life of many processed foods since consumers rarely consume all of these food products at once. Thus, the demand for flexible packaging is increasing. A good example of flexible packaging is retort pouches. They are strong and durable. These packages also don’t melt, warp, or have their contents modified in terms of quality. That’s why more and more outlets are choosing to stock them in vending machines. These types of pouches also don’t weigh much. This makes it easy to easily transport products that are packaged in them long distances.

By material type

This segment can be divided into the following:

  • Metal
  • Glass
  • Plastic

The plastic material sub-segment has the largest market share because it’s good for packaging huge and bulky foodstuffs. It also makes the foods safer and helps them stay fresh and safe for human consumption for longer. Plastics are very flexible. Thus, they can be molded to fit the shape of a wide variety of food products of different sizes and shapes.
