$23.83 Billion Cannabis Packaging Markets: Increasing Demand for Child-resistant and Tamper-evident Packaging - Global Forecast to 2030 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Cannabis Packaging Market By Type, By Material, By Application, and By Region Forecast to 2030" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global cannabis packaging market size is expected to reach USD 23.83 Billion in 2030 and register a revenue CAGR of 25.2%.

Increasing demand for child-resistant and tamper-evident packaging, legalization of cannabis in several countries, and growth of the medical cannabis market are some of the key factors propelling the growth of this market.

Cannabis packaging includes various containers such as bags, bottles, cans, cartons, and others used for storing, transporting, and marketing cannabis products. The type of packaging selected for a particular product depends on the form of the product and its end use.

For instance, pre-rolled joints are typically sold in small tubes or papers, while dried cannabis flowers are sold in brown glass jars. Moreover, new types of packaging such as pouches and stand-up bags are being introduced in the market to increase product visibility and shelf life.

The legalization of cannabis for recreational and medicinal purposes in several countries is one of the major factors driving the growth of this market. For instance, according to the U.S. National Conference of State Legislatures, as of September 2018, recreational use of cannabis is legal in nine states and Washington D.C., while medicinal use is legal in 30 states.

Moreover, according to Statistics Canada, the sale of legal cannabis was CAD 562 million in the third quarter of 2019, an increase of CAD 129 million from the second quarter of 2019. The increasing demand for child-resistant and tamper-evident packaging is another major factor driving the growth of this market.

Packaging keeps the product fresh and provides valuable information to consumers about the product. For these reasons, the packaging of cannabis is highly regulated in most legal markets. Regulations around the world vary, but often require child-resistant and tamper-evident packaging as well as clear labeling with strain name, THC and CBD content, cultivator or producer, and expiration date.
