DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "World Modified Atmosphere Packaging Market - Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014 - 2022" report to their offering.
Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) is a technique of prolonging the shelf life of fresh food. The proportion of gases, such as oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen, in the mixture for packaging depends upon the respiration needs of packaged food. MAP is beneficial for prolonging the initial fresh state of food without changing the surrounding temperature, or exposing to chemical treatments, such as freezing, dehydration, and others. MAP lowers the speed of product aging process, protects a product from deterioration, and extends the shelf life.
The key factors driving the modified atmosphere packaging market are hygienic packaging of food, manufacturers demand for a longer shelf-life, increasing demand for fresh and quality packaged food, on-the-go lifestyle, and shift towards easy-to-handle & convenient packaging. However, high cost of development and stringent environmental legislations are the factors hindering the growth of the market. Emerging economies and packaging as a tool for product differentiation create opportunities for the market growth.
The global modified atmosphere packaging market is segmented into application, material, machinery/technology, atmosphere/gases, and geography. The market is further segmented on the basis of application into dairy products, poultry, bakery & confectionery, seafood & meat products, convenience food, fruits & vegetables, and others. Furthermore, the market is segmented on the basis of material used into ethylene vinyl alcohol, poly ethylene, oriented polyethylene-terephthalate, polyamide, and others.
