As consumers continue to demand more sustainable options, the industry will likely continue to evolve and innovate to meet these demands and thus giving an opportunity to flexible plastic packaging manufacturers to attract them toward their sustainable packaging

By Material, Aluminum Foils accounted for the 2nd largest share in 2021.

Aluminum foil is a thin aluminum sheet (produced from bauxite ore) and is a lightweight metal with a silvery-white appearance. It is also the world’s most abundant metal in free and combined states. The aluminum used in Flexible plastic packaging is in the form of rolled products. Aluminum foil packaging with multilayered plastics is widely used for packaging fresh and processed meat, poultry, and fish, as they provide better hygiene and increase product shelf-life. They are extensively used in the food & beverage and healthcare sectors for packaging products, such as cheese cubes and blister packs. Aluminum has high ductility, and barrier protection, making it an ideal packaging material. It increases the shelf-life of products by keeping food, drinks, and other products safe and fresh. Another factor that enhances the use of aluminum for packaging purposes is its unparalleled recyclability.
