Analysis by Application

Since, shelf life surfaced as a crucial as well as decisive factor among end users (i.e. meat producers, fruits and vegetable producers, processed food producers etc.) while selecting packaging options, use of active and modified atmospheric packaging enabled meat producers, co-packers and retailers to extend shelf life of fresh meat products by approximately 13X. Furthermore, this packaging solution also render a visual appeal to fresh meat, which in turn attracts meat product buyers. Even a small increase in shelf life of fresh meat is a valuable proposition for engaged industry participants and creates substantial opportunity for them to enhance market footprint.

Additionally, active and modified atmospheric packaging is a form of flexible packaging, which offers sustainability advantages such as lower raw material consumption, lower carbon footprint, reduced energy consumption and low wastage. These factors cumulatively make it a preferred choice among end user and in turn translate into the increased demand for active and modified atmospheric packaging.
