Global Food Packaging Adhesive Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Food packaging adhesive is a substance that is used to attach two surfaces together. It is most commonly used in food packaging to attach the label to the container. The adhesive ensures that the label does not come off and that the information on it is readable.

Solvent Adhesive:

Solvent adhesive is a special type of glue that uses water as a solvent. The most common use of this product is in the packaging industry where it's used for lamination and coating food products with paper or plastic films. It also finds its application in lamination, assembly, and film deposition industries. Solvent adhesives are widely used owing to their properties such as immediate bonding without the need for drying followed by high strength which can withstand heavy loadings without breaking down.

Solvent-free Adhesive:

Solvent-free adhesive is a type of adhesives, which are produced without the use of any solvents. These products have gained huge popularity in food packaging applications owing to their eco-friendly nature and unique properties.

Application Insights:

The ordinary uses segment dominated the global food packaging adhesive market in 2017, accounting for more than 60.0% share of the overall revenue. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for various food products across the globe owing to growing population and changing lifestyle habits. Boiling foods are one of the major applications demanding adhesives on a large scale, which is expected to drive product demand over the forecast period.

Packaging products such as sauces and ketchup that boil or cook in oil are likely to witness high consumption due to rising awareness regarding nutrition levels among consumers around the globe. In addition, boiling foods require less refrigeration time compared with other methods of cooking making them highly preferred among consumers globally due to their busy lifestyles coupled with hectic work schedules.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for nearly half of global population, which makes it a key regional market. Booming construction industry due to rapid urbanization and growing disposable income levels in emerging economies such as China and India are expected to drive product demand over the next eight years.

North America accounted for more than 20% of global food packaging adhesive share in 2017 owing to high consumption from various industries including food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, tobacco products among others. Growing consumer preference towards convenient packaging solutions is likely to have a positive impact on industry growth over the coming years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for convenience foods: The growing trend of busy lifestyles has led to an increase in the demand for convenient foods that can be easily prepared and consumed. This is driving the growth of the food packaging adhesive market as these adhesives help in sealing and bonding food packaging materials together, thus making them more durable and resistant to leakage.
  • Rising awareness about hygiene and safety: Consumers are becoming increasingly aware about the importance of hygiene and safety when it comes to food consumption. This is leading to an increase in the demand for food packaging adhesives that can provide a barrier against contaminants and bacteria.
  • Growing popularity of ready-to-eat meals: There is a growing trend among consumers towards ready-to-eat meals as they are convenient, healthy, and affordable options. Food packaging adhesive manufacturers are capitalizing on this trend by developing products that can help keep these meals fresh for longer periods of time.
