Market Dynamics

The food & beverage industry has widely adopted smart packaging due to certain additional features such as preventing food spoilage, improving product attributes like taste and aroma, and increasing product shelf life. Smart packaging devices like time-temperature indicators, gas sensing devices, microbial growth indicators, freshness indicators, and biosensors have been used across food & beverage packaging and supply chains to drive the smart packaging industry. However, the high cost of active and intelligent packaging can hinder the growth of the market.

Market Segmentation

The global market for smart packaging has been segmented based on technology and application.

Based on technology, the global smart packaging market has been segmented into active packaging, intelligent packaging, and modified atmosphere packaging. The active packaging segment has been further divided into antimicrobial, gas scavengers, moisture control, and corrosion control. The intelligent packaging segment has been divided into time-temperature indicators, radio frequency identification detection (RFID), near-field communication (NFC), quick response code (QR code).  The active packaging segment accounted for the largest market in the global smart packaging market in 2018, while the smart packaging segment is the fastest-growing segment and is anticipated to register a high CAGR during the forecast period. The factors attributed to the growth of the active packaging segment in the market giving the advantages of extending the shelf life of food and preserving food quality while it is packed. Active packaging technologies involve certain biological, physical, or chemical reactions that modify the interactions between the package and the product in order to achieve the desired outcome.

Based on application, the global smart packaging market has been segmented into food & beverage, healthcare, automotive, personal care, and others. The reasons like a rise in demand for fresh and quality packaged food, consumer convenience, and manufacturers’ concern for the longer shelf life of the food products drive the market for global smart packaging technology for the food and beverage market.
