Countries in Asia Pacific are dealing with the inflationary consequences of the global environment as they emerge from the epidemic in 2023. The snack packaging market has demonstrated positive volume and value growth in 2023, with predictions of continuous expansion over the projected term, despite China experiencing rises in COVID-19 cases.

Rise of Alternative Packaging Materials in North America’s Snack Market

Snacks Packaging Market Trends

  • Minimalism has been a long-standing and popular trend in snack packaging. Consumers want transparency and honesty, especially regarding production processes and ingredients.
  • The sustainable snack food packaging trend requires fewer natural resources, allowing firms to continue creating product packaging at cheaper costs while increasing long-term stability.
  • 38% of people are willing to acquire a newly introduced product if it includes all relevant information on the snack package. People are becoming more mindful of what they consume.
  • Reusable zipper tapes, adhesives, sliders, lidding films, and other materials may be helpful. With these new package designs, consumers can keep snacks fresh in their original containers and prevent food waste.

Resealable Pouches Meeting the Demand for Versatile Snack Packaging

Single-use containers, sometimes called “stand-up pouches,” are pliable foil or plastic pouches intended to carry food or drinks. Snack food packaging has recently become increasingly popular due to the growing need for customized pouches that accommodate different snacks.

These resealable pouches are becoming increasingly popular because they don’t harm the environment. Materials like cardboard, metal, and glass are gradually replaced by polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

Lightweight and Versatile Appeal of Flexible Snack Packaging

Flexible and rigid packaging are the two main types of snack food packaging. Flexible packaging is lighter than rigid packaging because it is typically composed of bags or pouches sealed with heat or pressure and comprised of materials like plastic, film, foil, or paper. Customers enjoy snack bags and pouches that can hold many servings and have resealing technology since they keep food fresh and can be used for various occasions. Essential features in this category include zippers, hook-and-loop fasteners, and resealable stickers.

The competitive landscape of the snack packaging market is dominated by established industry giants such as Graham Packaging Holdings, Bryce Corporation, Sonoco Products, Bemis Company, Swiss pack private limited, American Packaging, Sealed Air Corporation, Printpack, Inc., WestRock Company and Tetra Pak International S.A. These giants compete with upstart direct-to-consumer firms that use digital platforms to gain market share.
