Global Agricultural Packaging Market – Technology Advancements

KM Packaging introduced a new line of compostable products in January 2021. Shrink wrap, stretch wrap, sticky tape, netting, and bags are among the bioplastic packaging products in the C-Range. These bioplastic items were created in collaboration with Treetop Biopak, a company that specializes in offering cutting-edge solutions for compostable packaging. With the introduction of BanaBag in October 2020, Smurfit Kappa, a manufacturer of paper-based packaging solutions, expanded its line of environment friendly and biodegradable products for the agriculture industry. The requirement for quality control during the entire growth cycle of the banana plant is addressed. In addition to shielding the fruit from pests and illness, BanaBag helps prevent overheating, which can happen when using other materials such as plastic. The “BioNanocel” R&D Project, started in April 2020 by the Spanish technological center for plastics Andaltec, aims to create bio-based active plastic packaging made with cellulose derived from vegetal biomass. The goal of this program is to provide improved, sustainable plastic materials for the food sector. It will recycle the often discarded vegetable biomass waste from agriculture activities.

Growth Factors

Spurring Need to Feed Rapidly Growing World Population

As food and beverage packaging regulations have become more stringent, agriculture packaging has become more common. The expanding population is another important aspect affecting the sector. The demand for importing and exporting goods related to agriculture has also grown dramatically as a result of globalization. Additionally, the production per yield has increased as a result of the green revolution and additional research and development. Modern packaging techniques have made it simpler for farmers and wholesalers to store the goods with less waste and have also made them more practical for transportation. The demand for food has greatly increased due to the growing world population. The world’s population was 7.8 billion in 2020, exploded from 6.1 billion in 2000, according to figures from the World Bank. In 2050, the population may exceed 9.7 billion, according to the UN. To feed a rapidly growing global population, the need for food has dramatically increased. Along with the rise in demand for food, there has been an increase in demand for crops used as feed, fuel, fiber, and feedstock. Agriculture packaging has also made transportation and storage simpler in response to the growing urban population. More than 56% of the population resides in urban areas, according to the World Bank. As a result, processed food and junk food demand rises.
