According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Aseptic Paper Packaging Market is accounted for $10.11 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $15.69 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period. Aseptic packaging is a key packaging technology that allows items to be preserved for extended periods of time without refrigeration. Aseptic packing protects delicate foods such as milk, soy drinks, nectars, and juice. Aseptic paper for packaging extends product shelf life while retaining the original composition. Aseptic paper packaging solutions are made from environmentally friendly bleached paperboard and coated unbleached kraft paperboard. The aseptic paper package is sterilised. As a result, it has a good impact on product shelf life. Manufacturers of aseptic paper packaging are working on developing novel aseptic paper packaging solutions that can improve food and beverage safety and sustainability.
According to Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), around 4,500 medicines were in the preclinical development phase of the drug pipeline in the United States as of April 2020.
Shift in consumer preference against the use of food preservatives
There is an increasing need for convenience food products with a long shelf life that are either free of bacterial contamination or can delay it. Food preservatives are widely used in food production to extend shelf life and protect product quality. However, people are becoming more aware of the dangers of eating processed meals laced with additives. Aseptic packaging is a concentrated procedure in which both the package and the product are sterilised separately before filling. This reduces the possibility of germs present and makes the meal safer and healthier. As a result, consumers are becoming more aware of aseptic paper packing. The growing number of government restrictions prohibiting the use of food preservatives, particularly in industrialised countries, is encouraging the usage of aseptic paper packaging.
Need for greater technological understanding then required for other packaging forms
The technological know-how and expertise required to set up a plant for packaging products aseptically, is another restraint for the growth of the market. For the establishment of an aseptic packaging facility, extensive understanding of this form of packaging and the sector of end use being catered to is essential, as this requires cautious handling at every step. As a result, manufacturers are discouraged from entering the aseptic packaging market. This characteristic of aseptic packing creates a barrier to market expansion. Technological advancements are assisting this industry in simplifying operational procedures without human intervention, albeit at a very high cost.
Rising demand for eco-friendly packaging
Rising consumer awareness of sustainable packaging and lowering the cost of cold chain logistics are projected to promote demand for aseptic packaging. Rapid urbanisation has raised demand for dairy products, packaged food and beverages, and products with a long shelf life. Consumption of food without preservatives and unprocessed foods is predicted to drive demand for aseptic packaging solutions. On April 21, 2022, Atkins announced the launch of a Tetra Pak container that is 78% renewable and made of plant-based components, resulting in a 17% reduction in carbon footprint when selling ready-to-drink shakes. Sugarcane, a plant-based polymer layer, is a crucial substance utilised in the inner and outer layers of cartons to create resealable caps.
High investment costs and the environmental consequences
The high investment necessary for design, as well as at various levels of processing and distribution, is a market constraint. Furthermore, differences in paper rules make transportation of food and beverage products more difficult. Furthermore, immature technology endangers the market by forcing extra R&D and product development investments. These considerations have a long-term impact on the consumption of this form of packaging.
The pandemic of COVID-19 has had a profound impact on consumer shopping habits. Consumer preferences are constantly shifting toward sterile packaging and products with a lengthy shelf life. Aseptic paper packaging solutions have high barrier qualities and utilise cutting-edge sterilising methods to extend product shelf life. Online demand is increasing, and delivery platforms have seen considerable increases in sales. During the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in consumption of UHT (Ultra Heat Treatment) milk, juices, and nutritious dairy products. As a result, sales of aseptic paper packaging are expected to skyrocket both during and after the pandemic.
The flat top carton segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The flat top carton segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. The increased shelf-life of aseptic paper packaging for flat top cartons drives the process of distributing and supplying items efficiently. Aseptic carton is tamper resistant and has tamper-evident seals, which is also a crucial reason in the growth of the aseptic paper packaging for flat top carton market. Aseptic paper for flat top cartons is primarily used in the beverage and dairy industries to efficiently package liquid products.
The pharmaceuticals segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The pharmaceuticals segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to the expanding medical industry, which necessitates glass and plastic packaging to uphold drug sterility. The packaging protects against bacteria and contamination, which is required in the medical field to prevent infections. Increased consumption of sterile drug packaging has resulted from an increase in the spread of contagious diseases in recent years.
Region with highest share:
Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to growing food processing industries, product improvement in the type of packages used, and an expanding number of aseptic packing firms are some of the main reasons. Furthermore, rising disposable income and changing consumer living standards are expected to promote revenue growth in the target market. Moreover, factors such as increased demand for convenience foods and rising acceptability of online shopping and e-commerce promote demand for aseptic paper packaging.
Region with highest CAGR:
North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for paper from packaging industry and growing retail, as well as e-commerce sector in the region. Consumers' growing knowledge of the negative effects of food preservatives, as well as their preference for chemical-free, unadulterated foods, are driving market revenue growth. Initial initial investment, technological advancement, and the creation of new products are projected to drive market expansion in this area.
