Market Insight

The global antimicrobial food packaging additives market is projected to register a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. Antimicrobials are any substance or materials infused with antimicrobial agents and additives to prevent the growth of infection and fever-causing microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, algae, yeasts, mildew, and other parasites. The growth of microorganisms on untreated particles causes discoloration, unpleasant odors, and polymer degradation issues. The use of antimicrobial additives inhibits the growth of these microorganisms in the end products. Antimicrobial additives offer enhanced properties such as high dimensional stability, heat & chemical resistance, and chemical stability. The antimicrobial food packaging additives market is segments based on type (Organic, Inorganic), application (plastic, paints & coatings, pulp & paper, others), and end-use industry (healthcare, packaging, food & beverage, construction, automotive, others). The demand for non-toxic plastics with enhanced features such as high antimicrobial activity, hardness, durability, and transparency, is increasing. So, the increasing demand for new and innovative products leads to technological and product innovation.


COVID-19 was an incomparable global public health emergency that has affected almost every industry and is projected to impact these various industry growths during the forecast period. During the Covid-19, pandemic people were compelled to stay in their homes. The governments of many countries in the world turned their focus to healthcare from other industries. This significantly disrupted their supply chain operations and manufacturing as lockdowns were imposed by the respective governments. Manufacturing facilities were all shut down due to the pandemic in almost every country across the globe. Due to the pandemic, several industries including antimicrobial food packaging additives were adversely negatively affected. Logistical restrictions, manpower shortage, material unavailability, and other restrictions had reduced the growth of the industry. The pandemic has affected the normal production of companies. The COVID-19 pandemic has created instability in the antimicrobial food packaging additives market across the globe. However, the market is now estimated to have reached pre-pandemic levels and is expected to grow steadily during the forecast period.


The report identified that the global antimicrobial food packaging additives market is driven by factors such as massive growth in the packaged food industry and beverages industry as well as commercial application of antimicrobial additives in the food packaging industry. On the other hand, the restraining factor identified in the study includes fluctuating prices of raw materials that likely limit the market growth. Increasing demand for packaging technologies that increase the shelf life of food products coupled with technological reforms in the packaging industry provides growth opportunities to leading players in this market. Lack of awareness about antimicrobial additives is likely to create more challenges, as health-conscious consumers are expected to misinterpret antimicrobial additives as food additives are harmful to human health.


The report provides a regional outlook covering geographies such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific holds the command over the global antimicrobial food packaging additives market and is expected to dominate the overall market during the forecast period. APAC is an emerging market for antimicrobial food packaging additives market, and it is mainly attributed to the high economic growth rate, followed by heavy investment in the healthcare, packaging, and automotive industries. With economic constraints and saturation in the European and North American markets, demand is shifting to the Asia-Pacific region. Growing demand and policies like emission control and the use of environmentally friendly products have led to innovation in the plastics industry of the region, making it a plastic hub, globally.
