Thermoform Packaging Market Growth & Trends

The global thermoform packaging market size is expected to reach USD 60.51 billion by 2027 registering a CAGR of 5.1%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The demand for thermoform packaging is increasing on account of growing sales of retail products, such as electronics, personal care, and cosmetics. Incorporation of innovative packaging techniques, such as modified atmosphere packaging, by the food manufacturers to extend the shelf life of packaged food is likely to support market growth. Moreover, these products are lightweight, which makes them user-friendly and enables easy transportation.

The thermoform plastic molding process offers multiple advantages, such as extensive design options, less tooling as well as prototype development cost over the other plastic molding processes. Furthermore, the thermoforming allows minimum raw material wastage and easy product customization, due to which, food & beverage manufacturers prefer these packaging solutions. The increasing penetration of e-food delivery platforms is another factor driving the demand for thermoform packaging products, such as containers, trays & lids, and clamshells.
