Global Food Grade Plastics Market: Introduction
Plastics which are specially developed for food packaging and storage applications are known as food grade plastics. Food grade plastics are specifically developed for the protection and safety of food and for extending its shelf life. Apart from being lightweight and strong the food grade plastics are also bacteria resistant which makes them an important aspect of food packaging industry. Over years there have been significant efforts towards the development of recyclable plastics, manufacturers are emphasizing towards the production of recyclable food grade plastics. Organizations such as U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada have regulated the safety measures for the development of food grade plastics. The resin identification code can be used for identifying the type of plastic used for food packaging, as there numerous types of plastics used for food packaging and storage. High Density Polyethylene and Polyethylene terephthalate are most widely used food grade plastics. Polyvinyl Chloride, Low Density Polyethylene, Polypropylene and Polystyrene among others are other types of food grade plastics. Food grade plastics are used in bottles, jars, containers, bags, cups, trays and lids manufacturing.
Global Food Grade Plastics Market: Dynamics
The escalated growth of food & beverage industry coupled with pharmaceutical industry growth is anticipated to be the prime factor responsible for the growth of global food grade plastics market. Food packaging is arguably is one of the key aspect of the food & beverage industry. Globally, the demand for food packaging is projected to intensify owing to the increase in product intake by the consumers. Emphasis on safe packaged food is driving the demand for food grade plastics ensuring no contamination or pathogenic presence in the food contents as well as bio-degradability of the material on disposal. Thus, the increasing demand for food packaging and storage is estimated to fuel the demand for food grade plastics. Also, the increasing consumption of processed food and the global expansion of the retail food delivery chains especially in the developing countries is expected to increase the demand for food grade plastics. Increasing awareness regarding environmental pollution amongst the people as generated the need for development and adoption plastic alternatives in packaging industry. Increasing stringent government regulations and norms on plastic products is expected to intensify the manufacturing scenario. The aforementioned factors might cause hindrance in the market growth of food grade plastics market.
