NEW YORK, April 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global flexible packaging market  is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.1%, and is projected to reach USD 313.1 billion by 2024. The growth is attributed to the increasing disposable income and growing consumer preference towards packaged goods. Moreover, low production cost coupled with expanding applications of flexible packaging such as improving moisture barrier properties, appropriate sealing and heat insulation is also expected to drive the market. New innovations in flexible packaging are further expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.

Flexible packaging has emerged as an alternative to traditional rigid packaging. Many products which were traditionally packed in cans and jars are now available in pouches and bags. Flexible packaging has many advantages over rigid packaging. It requires less packing material and the packaging is lighter than the traditional packaging. Moreover, the reduction in weight of the packaging makes it more cost effective by lowering the warehousing and the shipping cost.
