Market Analysis 

The Antimicrobial Packaging Market Size size was at USD 9.13 billion in the year 2020 and it is expected to surpass the market value of over USD 13.86 billion by the year 2028 while registering a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period., as per the latest Market Research Future (MRFR) analysis. Antimicrobial packaging is the packaging system which adds active ingredients, utilizes actively functional polymers in the packaging system to be able to inhibit pathogenic microorganisms and spoilage involved in contaminating the food products. This is a promising technology which effectively saturates the antimicrobial into the food packaging film material and subsequently distributes it over the stipulated duration for killing the pathogenic microorganisms impacting food products, thus maximizing the shelf life to severe folds. 


Various factors are fuelling the global Antimicrobial Packaging Market Size As per the current Market Research Future market estimates, such factors include the growing awareness about consumer health & longer shelf life of products, growth in population, increasing disposable income, large consumption of packaged food products owing to instant preparatory methods, rising consumer demand for products that are minimally processed, preservative-free, and perishable, the need to increase the products shelf life, growing concerns towards food wastage, and surging consumer awareness about health-related issues. The additional factors adding market growth include rising consumption of products that have shorter shelf life like meat products, growing need by different end user industries like agricultural products, consumer goods, personal care, healthcare, and food and beverage, rapid urbanization, demand for better quality products, rise in foodborne and infectious disease, increasing use during the COVID-19 pandemic, and rise in cognizance about health related issues owing to food spoilage. 


On the contrary, fluctuations in raw material costs, strict compliance to regulations, need for constant R&D and technological advances, and variations in laboratory viability results and actual/practical food conditions may limit the global Antimicrobial Packaging Market Size growth over the forecast period.
