Key Market Trends

Plastic Packaging to Hold Significant Market Share

  • Plastic bags and pouches are mostly used for packaging different agrochemical products, such as fertilizer and pesticides. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and HDPE are the preferred materials for manufacturing plastic bottles and jars. These medium barrier solutions deliver moderate levels of moisture barrier, heat resistance, gas permeability, and oxygen barrier, which is suitable to use agrochemical industries.
  • According to The Wall Street Journal,500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. The factors which are influencing the adoption of plastics in this market are its lightweight, reliable, and economic nature. For instance, in 2019, Nexus packaging launched innostacker, which is lightweight and can also have the capacity of recycling.
  • Flexible plastics are used for flexible packaging solutions, and this can also reduce an organization's carbon footprint. The application of pouches & bags in agrochemical packaging has increased due to its higher safety against transportation losses in a sustainable manner. For instance, Scholle IPN offers pouch packaging fertilizer solutions that provide a better product to package ration than rigid formats like bottles and jars.

Asia-Pacific to Hold the Significant Market Share

  • Asia Pacific region is expected to retain a significant market share within this forecast period. The growing trade opportunities in these regions, such as China, India is fuelling the growth of this market. However, the Chinese agrochemical market is growing slowly due to the government regulations on zero residue in the food crops. According to the World Economic Forum, the chemical fertilizer use in China is reduced by 15% per crop, which can be one of the major restraints for this region.
  • Moreover, the demand for agrochemical packaging is increasing in different developing countries such as India, Indonesia, and Thailand. The increasing trend of food production and the consumption of chemical fertilizer are creating substantial market potentials for the key vendors in this market. According to the Department of Agriculture Corporation India, the total food grain production in India is estimated at 291.95 million, which is higher by 6.74 million tonnes from its previous year 2018.
  • Major key vendors in this market are also offering innovative bags and pouches formats, sizes, and functionality in response to the consumer demand for convenience. For instance, Mauser Packaging Solutions launched IBC Valve Seal with its recyclable and tamper-evident, which makes this product suitable to use in the Agriculture Chemical Packaging market.
