Active and Modified Atmospheric Packaging Market Segmented By Polyethylene, Polyvinyl Chloride, Polypropylene, Polyamide, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol, Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Material for Dairy Products, Fruits and Vegetables, Bakery and Confectionery, Processed Food Products
Modified atmospheric packaging is used to pack fresh-cut fruits and vegetables. This is being done to achieve the fresh-like quality product with high nutritional value. Active and modified atmospheric packaging is considered as a new solution for food packaging. Moreover, recent developments including respiring trays, self-venting microwave packs and others are contributing to the growth of the global active and modified atmospheric packaging market.
Along with the food industry, pharmaceutical and dietary supplement industry are also moving towards using active and modified atmospheric packaging in order to reduce the amount of oxygen and moisture in products and also extend the shelf-life and allowing the consumer to store medicines and dietary supplements for a long period of time.
The trend of consuming fresh-cut fruits and vegetables has also increased. Hence, active and modified atmospheric packaging is also used in packaging mixed fruit salads, and vegetables to keep them fresh for a long period of time. Modified atmospheric packaging is also used in packing coffee beans as it provides high freshness, and preserve and quality for a long time.
As per the report by Persistence Market Research, the global market for active and modified atmospheric packaging is expected to witness steady growth. Towards the end of 2024, the global active and modified atmospheric packaging market is projected to reach US$ 26,450.2 Million revenue. Companies involved in dairy products and frozen food products are also using active and modified atmospheric packaging.
Compared to packaging other food products including bakery and confectionery, fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and other processed food products, active and modified atmospheric packaging is likely to be used largely in packaging meat, poultry, and seafood. The active and modified atmospheric packaging is highly preferred by food retailers as it lowers the cost of storage and production. It also helps in eliminating the need for chemical preservatives. However, the cost of materials and machines in active and modified atmospheric packaging is high, hence, the manufacturers are focusing on using materials and machines that are low in cost and eco-friendly.
Increasing popularity of meat, seafood, poultry products is also resulting in the growth of active and modified atmospheric packaging. Moreover, the rise in the demand for fresh fruits and vegetables and ready-to-eat food products is also fueling the growth of the global market for active and modified atmospheric packaging.
Although the modified atmospheric packaging is used on a large scale, researchers and scientists are focusing on developing active and modified atmospheric packaging as per the requirement of customers, providing environmentally friendly design, and enhancing the quality of the product packed in it. Moreover, advancement in technology is also resulting in the use of sensors in the packaging industry. Hence, smart packages are also gaining popularity across various industries.
A trend towards minimally processed food, and ready to eat fruit and vegetables is also resulting in the growth of the global active and modified atmospheric packaging market. Sensor-based packages also indicate ripeness and spoilage of the food products, this also resulting in its popularity.
