2016-2021 Global Processed Meat Packaging Demand Outlook Compared to 2022-2032 Forecast

Fast-paced lifestyles and increasing number of salaried workers have raised the consumption rate of ready-to-eat food products, which is expected to spur sales of processed meat packaging. The packaging’s main objective is to protect the goods. Meat must be covered in packaging to prevent contamination, maintain freshness, and extend shelf life.

Since meat is a perishable product, its packaging must serve a number of purposes, including displaying label information, ensuring product visibility, providing a high barrier to protect the food from physio-chemical changes, moisture, oxygen, as well as resisting grease, odor, and tearing to keep it fresh.
