Food Packaging Market: Prevent food counterfeiting to drive growth

The key factor driving growth in the food packaging market is the prevention of food counterfeiting. Food fraud costs the global food industry billions of dollars annually. Packaging can play a major role in combating such food counterfeiting concerns. Food traceability can be adopted to prevent food counterfeiting. This technology enables tracking of the food during its movement through the entire supply chain. For tracking food products, technologies such as barcodes and radio frequency identification (RFID) tags are used. Therefore, in order to implement these technologies, proper packaging of products is a necessity in the industry. The use of barcode labels on a packaged product helps in verifying the product's integrity, thus overcoming counterfeiting to a great extent.

Food Packaging Market: Volatility in raw material prices to hamper growth 

The volatility in raw material prices will be a major challenge for the food packaging market during the forecast period. The different types of packaging materials used for the packaging of food include plastic, glass, metals, and paper. For example, cartons used in food packaging are produced either from recycled fiber mills or virgin fibers. The prices of both recycled fiber mills and virgin fibers constantly fluctuate, which is a major concern for end-users like carton producers. The instability in the price of raw materials will result in the reduction of profit margins of vendors due to the increasing production cost. Vendors are forced to increase their product pricing due to fluctuating raw material prices. The prices of packaging raw materials such as paper and paper products that are used to manufacture corrugated packaging solutions are expected to fluctuate and companies are expected to increase the prices of corrugated packaging in response to the increase in raw material prices.
