This market research analysis identifies the rise in demand for paper-based packaging in the food service sector as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Specialty papers are more sustainable as compared to other packaging materials used by the food industry.  The rise in a number of quick service restaurants and take-out meals in the recent years led to the increase in demand for specialty paper packaging for take-out meals. Additionally, the rise in the focus of food manufacturers towards food barrier packaging solutions that are recyclable and biodegradable will also drive the demand for specialty papers, subsequently aid market growth.

The increased usage of micro-fibrillated cellulose (MFC) in paper-based packaging will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market in the coming years. The use of MFC will help companies reduce the weight of packaging while maintaining material strength and stiffness. Incentives and regulations offered by governments of several countries in Europe towards reducing the weight of packaging and the properties of MFC such as lightweight, biodegradable, and barrier properties that eliminate the ingress of oxygen and other gaseous compounds, will also increase the usage of MFC in manufacturing paper packaging materials.
