Vacuum Packaging Market Analysis
Vacuum Packaging Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018-2026
Vacuum packaging is a technology in which air is removed in order to block the growth of oxygen-breathing microbes, which spoil the product. The purpose of vacuum packaging is to eliminate oxygen from the package. Removal of inner oxygen results in a longer shelf life. It is essential that the accurate incorporation of the product, process, package, and distribution exists in the supply chain to avoid recontamination. The global vacuum packaging market is gaining momentum primarily due to the increasing demand for sanitary packaging in various sectors. A prominent disadvantage of vacuum packaging includes the loss of preservation once the package is opened.
Major drivers for the vacuum packaging market include the demand for hygienic packaging, manufacturers’ demand of longer shelf-life, a shift toward easy-to-handle & convenient packaging, and growth of end-use industries. Food packaging market plays a critical role in driving the growth of vacuum packaging market. Ease of handling, portability, and flexibility have increased the popularity of packaged food. This technique ensures shelf life extension with high sterile environment, which prohibits food spoilage.

Polyethylene is the most used material for vacuum packaging due to its low production & processing cost that has encouraged producers to prefer polyethylene over other packaging materials. Polyamide is another highly demanded packaging material due to its properties such as transparency, elasticity, and high thermoforming & high shrinkage characteristics. Increasing requirement for transparent food covering, due to its assurance on food quality by visual inspection, is expected to drive the polyamide demand over the forecast period. Thermoforming machines can be used for vacuum packaging in large production facilities. It is possible to customize thermoform plastics on the basis of size, color, clarity, and shape. This enables products to fit perfectly in order to create a consistent appearance according to the requirement.
