Growth Factors

Rising demand for low-cost, convenient, shelf appealing, and lightweight packaging by end-use industries, including food and beverages, healthcare, personal care and cosmetics, and home care, is likely to fuel market growth.

Pouches demand lesser material, energy, and water during their manufacturing and thus prove to be significantly less expensive than rigid packaging solutions. In addition, lightweight and flexibility attribute for their lower transportation cost, due to which Consumer Products (CPG) companies are increasingly opting for pouches over rigid tubes, containers, and boxes.

By Material Analysis

The plastics material segment dominated the market with a revenue share of more than 64% in 2020. Plastic pouches keep packaged products fresh for a longer duration as they offer strong resistance to moisture, dust, oxygen, and UV light; this factor is mainly attributed to the highest share of the segment.

The low cost and durability of plastic make it the most preferred material. The bioplastic material segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2030. The material exhibits similar properties to that of plastic material and is completely degradable.

By Treatment Type Analysis

The standard treatment type segment dominated the market with a revenue share of more than 59% in 2020. The growth is credited to the widespread use of standard treatment pouches across the food & beverage, personal care, and cosmetics end-use sectors owing to their lower cost as well as higher durability. 

In the aseptic treatment process, food products, such as milk, soup, non-carbonated beverages, and pharmaceuticals, are sterilized separately from packaging, and further, under the sterile condition, the products are inserted into the packaging.

By Product Analysis

The flat product segment dominated the industry accounting for a 65.8% revenue share in 2020. Various CPG products, such as snacks, confectionery, dry fruits, detergents, fabric care, and medical equipment, are predominantly packed in flat pouches due to their low cost and convenience of storage.

This portability, coupled with easy-to-open closures incorporated in product format, attributes to the growth of this segment. Stand-up pouches also allow consumers to empty the package effortlessly in contrast to rigid packaging products, such as metal cans, which further results in lesser food wastage through the pouches.

By Closure Type Analysis

 Spout closure pouches are used as a substitute for plastic bottles as they are highly sustainable. Thus, with increasing demand for sustainable alternatives, the spout closure type is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period. 

Zipper closure type packaging protects the products, such as pancake mixes, dog treats, and nuts, from excess moisture while retaining their freshness for a long time even when used more than once. Zipper pouches are becoming a popular choice in emerging economies where consumers are shifting toward packaged foods for daily consumption.

By End-use Analysis

The food & beverage end-use segment dominated the market accounting for a revenue share of more than 55.1% in 2020. Increasing product usage for the packaging of alcoholic beverages, due to its low weight, high sustainability, and non-fragile nature, is contributing to the growth of the segment. 

The popular snackification trend, wherein multiple snacks are preferred over a complete meal due to the busy lifestyle and convenience of consumption, is expected to offer considerable opportunities to the pouch manufacturers in the coming years.

By Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 37% in 2020 and is estimated to register the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2030. Factors, such as the increasing product demand due to its low cost and high aesthetic appeal on retail shelves and the rapid growth of the organized retail sector in the region are expected to further drive the market.

North America is expected to have a steady growth over the forecast period. Increasing preference for pouches by the CPG manufacturers due to marketing advantages is expected to favor the product demand. In addition, growing consumer preference for the pouches owing to their portability and convenience of use is anticipated to boost the regional market growth.
