Outlook of the global frozen food packaging market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global frozen food packaging market to grow at a CAGR of approximately 5% by 2020. The rising need to reduce food wastage is one of the major factors fueling market growth. Food wastage has become a major concern worldwide, as nearly one-third of the food produced for human consumption is wasted. To reduce such instances of food wastage, the demand for packaging solutions is continually increasing as it helps to increase the shelf life of food products that are sensitive to changes in environmental conditions.

In terms of geography, the EMEA region is envisaged to account for more than 37% of the total market share by the end of 2020. The rising demand for frozen food specialties, especially in regions like the UK and Germany, will foster the need for frozen packaging solutions during the forecast period. Furthermore, with the growth of the plastic films market, the market for frozen food packaging in this region will witness a steady increase as it is useful in the development of shrink pouches and stand-up pouches.
