What Are The Growth Prospects And Trends In The Contract Packaging Industry?

The inflating demand for packaged and ready-to-eat (RTE) food products, owing to the hectic lifestyles and busy schedules of individuals, is among the key factors driving the contract packaging market. In addition to this, the increasing focus among major market players on providing serialization, child-resistant, and tamper-evident features in their packaging solutions to adequately meet the stringent standards set by government bodies across countries is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the shifting preferences toward contract packaging in the retail industry for minimizing costs and improving product presentation are also positively influencing the global market. Apart from this, the emerging trend of online shopping and the launch of home delivery models are further stimulating the market growth.
