Global metal packaging market: Increasing demand for microwave-suitable metal packaging
The increasing demand for sustainability and convenience from their food purchasers, the food service providers are looking for innovative solutions to attract customers both through product and packaging. Earlier, the use of electroconductive materials such as metal was not considered to be appropriate for the microwave food. However, nowadays, metallic materials such as aluminum and steel can be safely heated in the microwave owing to growing technological developments.
“Metal packaging is beneficial over the commonly used plastic alternative, as the metallic material is sustainable and can distribute heat evenly through a food item. However, metal packaging solution takes more time to heat food in microwave compared with the plastic packaging, but it is more effective than the plastic packaged container. Therefore, it could lead to an increase in adoption of metal packaging during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on packaging.
