Key drivers propelling this growth include changing consumer dietary preferences, shifting lifestyles, and continuous innovations in the packaging industry. As consumers increasingly opt for packaged goods to align with their busy lives and growing health consciousness, the food packaging market is primed for substantial expansion.

The demand for packaged goods is on the rise due to evolving consumer preferences and lifestyle changes, further fueled by an increasing population and per capita income. In addition, the market is witnessing growth in the convenience food sector, driven by the demand for ready-to-eat snacks to cater to sedentary lifestyles. As consumers transition towards more convenient consumable foods, the food packaging market is set to experience significant growth.

Innovations in areas such as edible/biodegradable packaging, active packaging, and intelligent packaging are enhancing market accessibility and product safety.
