Market Dynamics

Growing Demand for Biodegradable and Recyclable Packaging Options:

For both consumers and manufacturers, recyclable and biodegradable packaging has proven to be a desirable substitute for single-use packaging options. In the U.S., food service packaging contributes significantly to landfill waste. According to a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency report, food waste and packaging make up most of the materials dumped in U.S. landfills. Paper packaging is preferable to recyclable packaging because it decomposes naturally. Recycling food packaging raises the possibility of contamination, which could impact the environment and human health. Increased global governments' efforts to reduce the use of single-use plastic bags are driving demand for recyclable yet sustainable packaging options, which is driving demand for food contact papers.

High Demand for Fast Food:

The demand created by the food service sector and other industries is a major driver of the global market for food contact paper. Burgers, pizza, wraps & rolls, sandwiches, and other culinary products are packaged with food contact paper. Due to consumers' growing preference for prepared and packaged foods due to their busier lifestyles, the global fast food category has seen a strong market expansion in the last few years. Globally, there is a huge demand for fast and on-the-go foods, which is driving up the price of packaging materials like food contact paper.

Growing Demand for Lightweight Materials:

One of the key market trends in the demand for lightweight materials for food and beverage packaging. Vendors are creating lightweight, high-performance paper grades to cut costs, boost performance, and maintain compliance. Costs are reduced by the lightweight packing goods' low production material consumption and great delivery efficiency. Low material use during manufacturing also lessens the overall process's environmental impact. Therefore, the market for food contact paper will rise over the forecast period due to the rising need for lightweight materials.
