Market Drivers and Challenges

Growth Indicators

The demand for food products around the world is increasingly massively owing to the rising population across nations. Moreover, with the rising population, the production of liquid food products, such as milk, is also increasing rapidly. According to the statistics by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, milk production around the world grew by 1.4% from the year 2018 to reach 852 million in the year 2019. Milk is one such liquid product which is used in multiple forms for consumption. The different type of end product thereby requires different form of packaging. But on and all, owing to the rising concern for contamination of the milk and poor shelf life, there is a rising demand amongst the liquid food manufacturers to obtain eco-friendly packaging products, such as liquid packaging carton, which can overall contribute to extend the shelf life of such products and reduce the cost of production of the food processors. On the other hand, rising concern for transportation of liquid food products and the increasing cost of transportation is raising the need amongst the manufacturers of liquid food products to obtain packaging materials that are sustainable, promote eco-friendly packaging as well as contribute to the lower cost of transportation by efficiently using stacking space during transportation. Such factors are anticipated to drive the growth of the global liquid packaging carton market.


Presence of numerous substitute materials for packaging of liquid food products, coupled with higher cost of liquid packaging cartons in comparison to the available alternatives, are some of the factors anticipated to act as a restraining factor towards the growth of the global liquid packaging carton market.
