Nano-enabled food and beverages packaging has considerably low share (about 3%) in the food and beverages packaging industry. Nanotechnology finds its applications in several industries, including information and communications, cosmetics, textiles, energy, medicine, and food and beverages. Nano-enabled packaging gives longer shelf life to food and beverages as compared to traditional plastic packaging. Barrier coating in the food and beverages industry finds its use commonly in the packaging of snacks, dried food, and beverages. It is the barrier property of the PET bottles that keeps the flavor and fizz of carbonated soft drinks intact by keeping oxygen outside the bottles from coming in contact with the drinks. Nanotechnology-enabled barrier also protects food and beverages from carbon dioxide (CO2), water, vapor, and ultraviolet rays.

There are two sub-technologies used in the nano enabled packaging in food and beverage namely active packaging and intelligent packaging wherein former is the dominant technology segment. By application the market is segmented into five application areas namely bakery, meat products, beverages, fruit and vegetables, prepared foods and others.

The market for active packaging is growing rapidly due to a shift from customary food packaging to shelf-stable packaging. Different technologies are used in active packaging on the basis of suitability for various food and beverage types. The most common of these is oxygen scavenger in which oxygen in the environment of a food item is absorbed into the package to promote shelf life. Another popular type is controlled release packaging, which is suitable for controlling continuous food degradation reactions, such as microbial growth and lipid oxidation. Asia Pacific is the largest market for active packaging with Japan being the leading country in the region.
