Parchment Paper Market to Grow At 5.8% CAGR, Strengthened by Focus on Sustainable Food Packaging Solutions: Future market Insights Study

The global parchment paper market is forecast to surpass the valuation of US$ 959.3 million by the end of 2021, projects ESOMAR-certified consulting firm Future Market Insights (FMI). The market is expected to register growth at 5.8% CAGR between 2021 and 2031.

Bakeries, restaurants, and food delivery services are shifting from non-biodegradable packaging materials and adopting parchment paper owing to the implementation of strict environmental laws, especially on usage of plastic and other materials.

Sales in China and India will rise at a high pace, backed by expansion of food service sector at an accelerated pace. Coupled with this, focus on sustainable packaging solutions will remain a chief growth driver.

Some restaurants are using parchment paper as a tool for marketing and brand promotion by printing their logos on these papers. Increasing utilization of parchment paper in fancy and convenient packaging styles will guarantee growth in the coming years.

Parchment paper has emerged as a suitable alternative to clamshell packaging. To reduce the logistical cost, packaging manufacturers are working towards cutting down on the use of clamshell as a primary packaging source. This trend is expected to continue in the coming years, presenting a conducive environment for parchment paper sales growth.

COVID-19 pandemic temporarily hampered the sales of parchment paper due to closure of restaurants and manufacturing plants. Scarcity of raw materials in paper mills due to lockdown hindered the manufacturing process of parchment paper. With lockdown and other restrictions gradually getting lifted, the market is expected to showcase a rapid recovery in next few years.

“Increasing consumer spending on fast food service and rising popularity of on-the-go eating and online food delivery services will boost the demand for parchment paper over the forecast period,” says the FMI analyst
