The industry is majorly driven by the increasing demand for high protein foods across the globe. The exponential growth in egg production has driven egg packaging with consistent demand.

The majority of consumers across the world have preferred to consume eggs over meat as a safe and inexpensive source of protein, which is expected to boost the global market during the period 2020-2025. The increasing demand for packaging in the food industry across the globe, especially in emerging countries in China, India, Brazil, and Indonesia, has aided the growth of the egg packaging market with significant growth in 2019. However, the volatility in raw material costs, especially in APAC, Europe, and North American countries, has led to the fluctuation of packaging material, intense competition among manufacturers, and increasing prohibitory regulations over plastic that are expected to restrict the growth and scope of the market.

The majority of poultry producers across the world are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic; however, the impact varies markedly from region to region in 2019 and 2020. In Q2 2020, countries across the world regions have been at different stages in the disease's progression, with relaxations in restrictions. The global slump in restaurant dine-in across the world during Q1 and Q2 2020 has pushed egg packaging industries across the regions with a major decline in production and demand. On the global scale, APAC and Europe have mainly remained affected by the spread of the virus.

Egg Packaging Market Segmentation

The global egg packaging market research report includes a detailed segmentation by material type, product type, and geography. The increasing concern to ban plastic across the globe is expected to bolster the market for paper-based packaging products in the egg industry. Several vendors are actively involved in enhancing product designs with suitable paper materials that are highly attractive to customers.

Major countries in APAC, North America, and Europe have made several legislations to ban the usage of single-use plastics. The consumption of paper materials for packaging in APAC is predicted to register the highest market share of around 36% for molded fiber-packed eggs in supermarkets and hypermarkets around the world.

The demand for egg cartons can be majorly attributed to the growth in demand and sale volume of eggs in retail stores. This is because of increasing concerns from shoppers in supermarkets and grocery stores for an improvised design for handy packaging solutions. Although the scope for innovations in packaging materials is low, several vendors change their designs to attract customers in retail stores across the globe. On the global scale, egg packaging companies have started to invest rigorously in recyclable folding cartons to offer eco-friendly solutions, thereby expecting to tap a wide array of potential consumers across the world.


The global egg packaging market has been highly fragmented due to the presence of multinational suppliers as well as regional suppliers. Vendors are trying to improve their market share by increasing production capacity and launching new products to expand their market base and grow their geographical reach during the forecast period.
