North America Liquid Packaging Market Outlook - 2027

The North America Liquid Packaging market was valued at $93.1 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $137.1 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.4% from 2020 to 2027

 

Liquid packaging consists of the materials and packaging formats used in the packing, transportation, and storage of liquids and semi-liquids. Proper selection of liquid packaging is essential to enable its proper transportation and long-term storage. It includes rigid packaging formats such as bottles & containers and flexible packaging formats such as films, stand-up pouches, squeezable tubes, cartons, and bag-on-box. Liquid packaging can be of a single substrate or can be multi-layered laminate as in case of liquid cartons. They are used in packing both food products as well as non-food products such as chemicals.

The North America liquid packaging market size is expected to witness high growth during the forecast period, owing to increase in demand in the food & beverage and pharmaceuticals industries. The food & beverage, cosmetics, and the pharmaceutical industries are one of the largest sectors in North America, and these industries are also the major end users of liquid packaging. Increase in disposable income and change in lifestyles have affected the consumption patterns, leading to higher demand for packaged beverage products and other FMCG products. E-commerce platforms also cater to every consumer good that use liquid packaging, it includes personal care products, cosmetics, over-the-counter drugs, topical solutions, and household care products. Furthermore, e-commerce co-packers demand customized packaging solutions that reduce lead time. Hence, the growth of the North America FMCG (Fast-moving consumer goods) industry will boost the demand for liquid packaging during the forecast period. Furthermore, advantages of flexible liquid packaging such as convenient and easy-to-use packaging, ability to maintain freshness of food and enhance its shelf life, reduce packaging cost of food products, eliminate material wastage, and facilitate customization of packages further boost the liquid packaging market growth. New packaging products can be prototyped within a short period of time. In addition, high demand for lightweight packaging products significantly fuels the growth of the liquid packaging market. Several manufacturers have started using lightweight packaging products to address cost-related concerns across the value chain. Moreover, manufacturers are inclined toward recyclable polymers as alternatives to traditional petroleum-based polymers. Therefore, rise in concerns regarding disposal of plastic packaging products and stringent government regulations regarding plastic packaging products are expected to restrain the global market growth. 

Shifting toward renewable and innovative packaging solutions is expected to provide growth opportunities for the North America liquid packaging market. For instance, in 2019, cosmetic products manufacturer L'Oréal developed its first carton-based cosmetic tube in technical collaboration with Albéa – a cosmetic packaging wholesaler. The carton is made from bio-based paper-like material that replaces majority of the plastic. L'Oréal is set to launch this new cosmetic tube in the second half of 2020. Similarly, finish-based packaging solutions provider Stora Enso Oyj also developed a paperboard tube for cosmetics packaging as a climate-friendly alternative to plastic tubes. The paperboard tube is suitable for the primary packaging of skin cream products. Further, the incorporation of nanoparticles in food contact materials has the potential to provide a new technological spur in liquid packaging market. Several nanoparticles can provide active properties to food packaging materials such as antimicrobial properties, oxygen scavenging ability, and enzyme immobilization.
