Continued steady demand for pre-made pouch packaging formats are projected in Pre-Made Pouch Packaging Market—Global Industry Analyses 2014-2018 and Opportunity Assessments 2019-2029, a new report from London-based Future Market Insights, a provider of market intelligence and consulting services, serving clients in over 150 countries, with delivery centers in the U.S. and India.

Pouch packaging is an effective solution that helps in preserving packaged food by extending its shelf life. As the snacking trend is witnessing a rise, usage of single-serve, as well as re-sealable flexible packaging solutions is growing. Furthermore, the use of pre-made pouch packaging helps in reducing food wastage occurring throughout the supply chain. Thus, growth is expected to be driven by convenience and sustainability benefits pre-made pouch packaging promises to offer.

Pre-made pouches are lighter in weight than other conventional packaging formats such as metal cans, jars, etc. which results in reduced cost of transportation. This has led to a shift in preference of brand owners towards pouch packaging. Pre-made pouch packaging has turned out to be one of the most efficient and economical packaging solutions for brand owners operating in the packaged food industry.
