Food and Beverage Industry Seeks to Improve Product Shelf Life

"The trillion dollar food and beverage industry is expected to show an interestingly high focus on the global thermoform packaging market over the coming years. Thermoform packaging has not been an uncommon type in the food and beverage industry, but improving profitability and a growing demand for extending the shelf life of perishable products amid intensifying competition has been pushing players to seek a more large scale usage of thermoform packaging. This is expected to be a primary driver for the global thermoform packaging market over the coming years," states a TMR analyst. The demand for better packaging in the food and beverage industry does not seem to show any signs of slowing down for now, and thermoform packaging is at the top of the tier list for preferable packaging materials.

Thermoform Packaging Still a Negative for Heavy Items

The overall demand for thermoform packaging has been surging over the past few years, and across a number of end users. Despite this, there still remains a high level of negativity and aversion to use by the manufacturers of heavy products. This not only affects end users that already create heavy items, but also for industries such as food and beverages, where a growing number of players are planning to launch their products in significant volumes. They are therefore reassessing their usage rates of thermoform packaging due to its unsuitable nature for use as a robust material.
