As per the reports published by FMI, the global active packaging market is projected to have an average-paced CAGR of 9.49% during the forecast period. The current valuation of the market is US$ 26.13 Bn in 2023. The market value of the active packaging market is anticipated to surpass a market valuation of US$ 64.71 Bn by 2033. A historical market valuation of US$ 23.87 Bn has been recorded by the analysts of Future Market Insights for the concerned market during the base year.

FMI has analyzed that the market has witnessed a surge in demand over the period 2018-2022. The growth of the market is attributed to the high adoption of active packaging across the developing food & beverage and pharmaceutical industries in emerging economies. Due to their hectic lifestyles, ready-to-eat and on-the-go foods are in high demand in urban areas. This is leading to a change in market dynamics for active packaging in 2023.

Furthermore, active packaging solutions are increasing the safety of food and enhancing the shelf-life of the products, along with the delivery of appropriate information in the packages. However, it has been noted that stringent laws prohibiting the use of plastic for packaging in developing nations pose a serious threat to the market’s long-term expansion. Moreover, the high cost of active packaging also acts as a major restraint, impeding the growth of the active packaging industry through 2033.
