The Food Packaging industry is on the verge of a revolution. As the world is moving towards sustainability, the novel bio-based and biodegradable packaging materials are expected to create a promisable future in the food packaging industry. In 2017, nearly 1.19 billion tonnes (60% of total production) of bioplastics produced was used for packaging products, about 50% of which was for packaging F&B products. Increasing pressure from climate change activists and consumers is forcing governments and companies alike, to come up with innovative packaging and recycling strategies for a sustainable future. The past few years have seen a multitude of F&B companies committing to sustainability goals and programs. The coming decade will see the realization of these goals and their impact on how products are consumed and how packaging waste is handled. Furthermore, the bioplastics industry is in the initial phase of growth. Although newly constructed plants are still less, but the number seems to be increasing at a huge rate in the coming decades.

According to study conducted by Ingenious e-Brain; the market growth of sustainable food packaging is rapidly increasing with the market estimated to grow from USD X.XX billion in 2018 to USD XX billion by 2025, at a CAGR of XX%. This is due to the growing consumer preference towards eco-friendly materials and growing innovative technologies to produce bio-plastics. Furthermore, the increased consumption and demand for packaged food and need for sophisticated packaging for the growing middle class are adding up to the growth of sustainable food packaging market.
