Growth in demand from the food packaging industry to drive the market for molded pulp packaging

The molded pulp packaging market is driven by factors such as the growing demand for sustainable packaging, an increase in demand for recyclable packaging products, cost-effectiveness, and reduced packaging waste. Factors such as growth in demand from the food packaging and food disposable sectors and the preference for convenient packaging are driving the demand for molded pulp packaging. Emerging markets such as Asia-Pacific have contributed to an increase in the application of molded pulp packaging in packaging products. However, fluctuations in raw material prices impacting the overall packaging material cost are hindering the growth of the molded pulp packaging market.

The non-wood pulp segment of the molded pulp packaging market, by source type, is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period

The non-wood pulp, by source type, is projected to grow at a higher CAGR between 2018 and 2024. Non-wood pulp is generally made from agricultural food crop residues, grasses, and tree leaves that do not have immediate applications. It is processed and used as an excellent alternative for wood pulp, offering the same properties and benefits. Being a recyclable and sustainable source, the demand for non-wood pulp for the manufacturing of molded pulp packaging is contributing to market growth.

Asia-Pacific to gain maximum traction during the forecast period

The Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, followed by North America. In the Asia-Pacific region, China is the largest consumer of molded pulp packaging, followed by India. China, with its growing food packaging, food service, disposable, healthcare, and electronics industries, is expected to drive the molded pulp packaging market. India, with its growing inclination toward convenient product packaging, is expected to influence the molded pulp packaging market in the Asia-Pacific region.
