The cold chain packaging market size was valued at USD 28.2 Billion in 2023 and is expected to reach a market size of USD 137.8 Billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 19.2%.

Fort Collins, Colorado, April 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The growing need for sustainable and eco-friendly packaging solutions drives the cold chain packaging market.

The rising need for sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging options creates a substantial opening for the cold chain packaging market. Both consumers and businesses are growing more mindful of the ecological footprint of packaging materials and are actively pursuing alternatives to conventional single-use plastics. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) underscores a concerning projection: by 2050, the weight of plastic in the oceans could surpass that of fish. This alarming forecast has triggered a surge in the demand for cold chain packaging materials that are biodegradable, recyclable, and reusable. Companies capable of innovating and providing sustainable cold chain packaging solutions stand poised to secure a competitive advantage in the market.

The expanding food processing sector is another crucial driver for the cold chain packaging market. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that global food production will need to increase by 70% by 2050 to meet the growing population's demands. This growth in food production has led to an increased need for efficient cold chain packaging solutions to ensure the safe transportation and storage of perishable food items. Additionally, the rising demand for processed and ready-to-eat food products has further fueled the growth of the cold chain packaging market in the food processing sector.
