Converted Flexible Packaging Market Global Market – Overview
Converted flexible is the type of packaging which involves combining raw materials such as polyesters, adhesives, plastics, paper & paperboard, to create new packaging products, such as pouches and bags. It is widely used across applications such as pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, consumer goods, personal care, among others. Converted flexible packaging has wide applications in the F&B industry, mainly due to its features such as ease of handling, reduced production & shipment costs, and eco-friendliness. Rise in demand for packaged foods & beverages including ready-to-eat meals, frozen meals, and snack foods. Increase in consumer income in countries such as China, India, and Brazil, has led to a growth in demand for good-quality packaged food. Also, the rise in population in many countries, has led to an increase in food & beverage consumption, which ultimately increases the demand of converted flexible packaging products.
Technological advancements in packaging plays a vital role in driving the growth of converted flexible packaging market. Advanced technology in packaging has allowed companies for innovation in products instead of sticking to traditional methods of packaging. Due to this, many companies are investing in R&D and are coming up with advanced converted flexible packaging products with barrier resistance properties that offer resistance against heat and moisture and eliminates oxidation of foods. Such properties prove effective in maintaining the quality and consistency of food products while extending their shelf life without the use preservatives. For example, the shelf life of head lettuce is extended from three days to fourteen days when packed in MAP packed bag. Recent advancements in materials and production processes have reduced the weight of some these packages up to 50%, subsequently lowering product shipping costs while maintaining product protection.

Plastic is the most largely used material in converted flexible packaging. Associations such as U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and European Food Safety Authority have put some stringent regulations, which may restrict the growth of the market. For example, materials made either entirely or partially from recycled plastics and used in contact with food, should only be obtained from processes, which have been assessed for safety by EFSA and authorised by the European Commission. Regulation EC 282/2008 establishes rules for the authorisation of processes used to recycle such materials. This restricts the use of all types and grades of plastic and hampers the plastic packaging market in turn.
