Global Milk Packaging Market Outlook

Market Overview

Rising consumption of milk due to its high nutritional and health-related benefits is significantly raising the need for its proper packaging. Appropriate packaging of milk plays a vital role as it increases the shelf life of milk and helps in efficient & safe delivery of milk to the end users. Growing environmental awareness and rising preference towards the usage of eco-friendly packaging material for milk and other products is increasing the spending on R&D to produce innovative packaging solutions. In 2016, researchers of U.S. Department of Agriculture developed an edible and biodegradable packaging film with the help of milk protein named casein i.e. 500 times efficient in keeping oxygen away from the product and enhance its shelf life. Moreover, government is also taking initiatives in the reduction of usage of plastics in the packaging of milk. For instance, UK’s Food and Farming Department provided the instruction to dairy industry to reduce the usage of plastics in milk packaging that is expected to reduce up to 50% by the end of 2020.

Key vendors are adopting strategic investment to expand their product portfolio and to attract new customers. For instance, in 2015, Prolamina and Ampac, merged together to form their new global flexible packaging firm name, ProAmpac. In 2017, ProAmpac acquired a leading flexible packaging company Trinity Packaging Corp. (Trinity), aiming to provide creative packaging solutions for food and specialty industrial markets.

Market Drivers and Challenges

Growing demand for packaged milk and other dairy products are the two major factors which is creating a huge pressure on the dairy product manufacturers to increase the supply of products into the market. The food product manufacturers are inclining towards quality and bio-degradable packaging. Advancement in packaging machinery allows the manufacturers to introduce their product in attractive and multiple serve packaging. Growing demand for single serve milk packaging is expected to provide remarkable opportunities for milk manufacturers to gain huge consumer attraction. However, increasing cost of raw materials such as paper, plastic and aluminum used for packaging and ensuring product compliance and safety are some of the key factors restraining the growth of global milk packaging market. Moreover, introduction of stringent government regulations to minimize the harmful effects on environment from toxic material based packaging are building major challenges for the food and beverage industry to maintain their profit margin. High cost of eco-friendly packaging is a major factor which creates cynicism among the product manufacturers to adopt those packaging.
