Canada Multilayer Flexible Packaging Market Growth & Trends

The Canada multilayer flexible packaging market size is expected to reach USD 3.31 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2022 to 2030. Growing demand for packed food and its packaging coupled with demand for sustainable packaging products is attributed to be the key driver for the multilayer flexible packaging market in Canada.

The production of multilayer flexible packaging includes several processes such as coextrusion and lamination. The lamination process further includes different lamination types including extrusion lamination, adhesive, and lamination. The co-extrusion process is used to produce extrusion coating and laminating, tubing and sheathing, cast sheet, and cast film. Wherein, the lamination process is used to combine different materials.

Packaged food products have been dominant in the food supply chain in Canada. The changing lifestyle of the masses, rising disposable income of the population, and shrinking family sizes drive the demand for packaged food products in the country. Multiple layers of materials such as plastic films, aluminum, and/or paper act as a barrier to protect packaged food products against vapor and oxygen and help retain their nutritional value. Therefore, is it predominantly used in packaging food products such as cheese, cream, yogurt, chocolates, pet food, processed meat, and cereals.

Furthermore, the owing to the recycling challenges of multilayer packaging products due to inadequate recycling infrastructure has been resulting in the emergence of new recyclable packaging materials that make the packaging products sustainable. The government has been funding several projects aimed at producing bioplastics for usage in various end-use industries such as food & beverages, medical, and consumer goods. This is expected to support the growth of multilayer packaging.

The industry players are adopting several strategies including mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, and production capacity expansions to increase the market share and presence in the country. For instance, In June 2022, ePac Holdings, LLC, a flexible multilayer packaging manufacturer, announced adding third manufacturing and sales location in Quebec, Canada. The company already has operations in Toronto and Vancouver. Through this expansion, the company expects to serve the Consumer-Packaged Goods (CPG) brands in Quebec province.
