Global spout pouch market in food and beverage industry

In the food and beverage industry, spout pouches are most commonly used for packaging baby foods and beverages. The demand for global baby food sales was estimated to be around USD 30 billion in 2015.

The beverage packaging industry is witnessing many changes. The growth of the beverage packaging market will benefit the spout pouch market as consumers are more inclined towards the use of sustainable packaging products. With growing awareness of the environmental hazards caused by plastics, consumers in the market are demanding sustainable packaging formats. The growth in the dairy products sector, which grew by 3%-3.5% during 2015 and the energy drinks sector, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, is fueling the growth of the spout pouch market.

Global spout pouch market in liquid soaps and detergents industry

The packaging of liquids need special attention. Rigid packaging options such as bottles, cartons, and jars that are used for packing liquids occupy a lot of space on the shelves. In addition, these packaging formats are also prone to breakage. Thus, plastic pouches have gained popularity in packaging of liquids such as liquid bathing soaps, gels, hand soaps, detergents, and sanitizers. However, as plastic pouches are flexible in nature, there are chances of spillage of the liquids during dispensing. The manufacturers of pouches have considered spouts to be the solution to this problem.

“Many spout pouches are made of special packaging materials such as polyethylene and lower density polyethylene and thus prevent spoilage by protecting the contents from environmental factors,” says Sharan.

Global spout pouch market in oil and lubricants industry

The cost incurred in logistics is one major concern for any industry. The cost is particularly high for liquid packaging industries such as grease and oil packaging industries. Spout pouches offer leak-proof packaging with increased portability. They provide premium protection during transportation, shipping, and storage. The global spout pouch market in the oil and lubricants industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 9% during the forecast period.

The packaging of edible oils in spout pouches is a recent trend in the market. These pouches have oil-based film on the inner layer and a printed polyester on the outside. These pouches extend the shelf life of oils by at least 6-9 months. The demand for spout pouches with capacities of 5ml, 10ml, and 20ml is growing.
