Global Antimicrobial Packaging Market


Market Insight

Antimicrobial packaging is majorly used to control microbial growth in packaged food and other products. Many consumers demand food products with fewer preservatives. Antimicrobial packaging is the deliberate incorporation of antimicrobial substances in packaging for release from the package into the environment surrounding the packaged food. The antimicrobial packaging system suppresses the activities of microorganisms that contaminate foods. The antimicrobial activity is basically achieved by adding antimicrobial agents in the packaging material to prevent the growth of microbes by extending the lag period and decreasing live counts of microorganisms by reducing growth rate. The antimicrobial packaging system is specifically designed to control the microorganisms that adversely affect the shelf life, quality, and assurance of the safety of the food product. Apart from food and beverage, antimicrobial packaging has found its application in other industry verticals including healthcare, personal care, and homecare.


The growing concerns regarding food wastage are majorly driving the market. A large proportion of food gets spoiled during the food supply chain, especially before making it to the plate of final consumers. Antimicrobial packaging is specifically designed to control the microorganisms that adversely affect the shelf life, quality, and assurance of the safety of the food product. Moreover, the rise in consumer awareness about foodborne diseases is augmenting the market growth. Foodborne diseases are one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality across the world. As the governments and the people across the world are becoming aware of foodborne diseases, the adoption of antimicrobial packaging is expected to increase. However, the negative impact of antimicrobial materials on the environment is majorly hampering the market growth. A large amount of the wastes and emissions from antimicrobial packaging harms the environment and the people within it. On the other hand, the demand for antimicrobial packaging from the healthcare sector is growing over the forecast period. Several players in the antimicrobial packaging market are offering products for the healthcare industry. Development and marketing of such products are anticipated to offer favorable opportunities for the market players and drive the market further in the future.
