Posted by sagark on October 21st, 2019

Modified Atmospheric Packaging Market Scenario

The modified atmosphere concept for packaged goods consists of modifying the atmosphere surrounding a food product by vacuum, gas flushing or controlled permeability of the pack thus controlling the biochemical, enzymatic and microbial actions so as to avoid or decrease the main degradations that might occur. Increasing demand for fresh and quality packaged food and shifting trend towards easy-to-handle & convenient packaging boosting the demand of modified atmospheric packaging market.

Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) extends the shelf life of fresh food products because it saves them from moisture. Market Research Future (MRFR) has said in a research report about the global modified atmospheric packaging market that enumerates 5.3% CAGR between 2017 and 2023 for this market.

Modified Atmospheric Packaging Market Segmentation

The global modified atmospheric packaging market segmentation comprises of application, gases, materials, and region. The application-based segmentation covers bakery & confectionary, convenience food, dairy products, fruits & vegetables, and others. Bakery & confectionery segment holds the largest share in the market as confectionery items are perishable items they require packaging that can increase their shelf life.

By gases, the market has been segmented into carbon dioxide, nitrogen, oxygen, and others. Carbon dioxide holds the largest market share as higher the concentration of carbon dioxide; longer is the durability of the perishable food. Based on material, the market is being segmented into ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), polyethylene (PE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyproylene (PP), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). EVOH holds the largest share as it can offer excellent gas barrier properties and retain good processability. EVOH keeps oxygen out and retains carbon dioxide and nitrogen used in the MAP. EVOH holds very high resistance to oils due to which itcan preserve the taste and flavour.

Regional Analysis

The regional segmentation of the global modified atmospheric packaging market includesAsia Pacific, North America, Europe, and Rest of the World (RoW). North America is the global market leader due to the increasing demand for wrapped food in this region. The USA is the topmost country-specific market in this region, followed by Canada. Implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act by the US government is contributing to the market growth in USA. Other factors progressing the market growth in North America include increasing concern about the hygienic packaging and subsequent demand for MAP as it reduces contamination during handling.

Europe is the second largest regional market as perishable food items like beef and pork are among the key exports of Europe. Germany is among the top meat producers in the European Union (EU). It also leads the European market in the production as well as the export of pork. Germany is also the second largest beef exporter in Europe. Hence, the demand for proper meat packaging is always strong in Europe, especially in Germany. Other major country-specific markets in this region are France, Spain, and the UK. 

Asia Pacific region can rise as the fastest growing regional market due to rapid growth in the packaging business. Other factors contributing to the market growth in this region include growing urban population, demand for packaged food & beverages, and high disposable income in China and India.
