Middle East & Africa $2.85 Bn Aluminum Foil Packaging Markets to 2028 by Product (Pouches, Containers, Blisters), & End Use (Food & Beverages, Cosmetics) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Middle East & Africa Aluminum Foil Packaging Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Pouches, Containers, Blisters), by End Use (Food & Beverages, Cosmetics), and Segment Forecasts, 2020-2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Middle East & Africa aluminum foil packaging market size is expected to reach USD 2.85 billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 4.8%

The growth is driven by the shift of oil economies in the Middle East toward non-oil industries, including food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics.

Aluminum pouches and aluminum containers are being increasingly preferred for takeaway parcels by foodservice outlets owing to the performance benefits of aluminum foils. Aluminum foil packaging is recyclable and thereby expected to achieve significant gains in the flexible packaging segment in the region.

The governmental initiatives to curb the generation of plastic wastage are further expected to support market growth. In February 2017, officials in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia urged foodservice outlets, such as restaurants and bakeries, to stop using plastic bags and replace them with paper bags or aluminum foil containers. Such regulations are expected to be more prevalent in the coming years in response to the issues associated with plastic waste, thereby supporting the product demand.

Countries, such as Saudi Arabia and UAE, have witnessed an increased number of tourists over the past few years. This is expected to result in the growth of foodservice outlets and Quick-Service Restaurants (QSRs) in the region. This is expected to augment the consumption of aluminum packaging products, such as pouches and containers.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly increased the demand for home delivery of food packets due to restrictions on public movement on streets. Changing consumer behavior has resulted in increased demand at foodservice outlets, wherein aluminum packaging products are majorly used. This is expected to fuel the product demand for takeaway foods, thereby supporting market growth.
