FMCG Packaging Market Is Forecast To Expand At A CAGR Of 5.7% From 2022 To 2032, With Sales Growing 1.8 Times By 2032

The global FMCG packaging market is forecast to expand at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2022 to 2032, with sales growing 1.8 times by 2032. Consumer products, such as food and hygiene products, account for more than half of the world’s packaging sales.

Packaging protects products during transportation, extends their usable life, and even communicates important information about the product’s composition and purpose. Packaging that is well-designed promotes good transportation and shelving while also reducing waste throughout the supply chain.

Due to the expansion of sectors such as electronic, pharmaceutical, food & beverage and personal care in emerging economies, sales in the FMCG packaging market are projected to remain high over the forecast period.

Emergence of smart packaging solutions that are equipped with barcodes and QR codes for providing product information to consumers is a chief factor driving the market. Inclusion of smart tags and smart packaging is also improving inventory operations such as life cycle management, shelving and tracking in the warehouse.

For instance, Botch included smart technology in carton printing that tracks and traces the product movement throughout the supply chain. Besides this, PakSense has added ultra-contact labels- a temperature monitor label that highlights optimum temperature.

“Eco-friendly paper-based packaging is expected to gain traction over the forecast period, thereby augmenting the growth in the market. Growing environmental concerns and regulations on packaging will also create opportunities for players to improve product quality, which in turn will drive sales over the forecast period,” says the FMI analyst

Key Takeaways:

  • Based on end use, sales in the food & beverage sector are projected to increase at a 6.1% CAGR through 2032.
  • In terms of material, demand in the plastic segment will remain high.
