Thermoform Packaging Market Outlook- 2027

The global thermoform packaging market was valued at $42.6 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $60.5 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.30% from 2020 to 2027.

Thermoform packaging are molded products obtained by the thermoforming process, which involves molding of plastic into desired shape by heating and application of pressure. It is relatively simple and cheaper than other plastic molding and forming methods. In this process, a thermoplastic sheet is heated until it is pliable, and then placed on a mold until the sheet cools to form the finished part. Thermoforming packaging exhibits various properties such as lightweight, protective attribute, cost-effectiveness, and reusability, which increase its applicability in various industries such as food & beverage, electronics, personal care, pharmaceuticals, and automotive sector.

The global thermoform packaging market size is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period, owing to increase indemand in the food & beverage and pharmaceuticals industries.Furthermore, advantages of thermoform packaging such as convenient and easy-to-use packaging, maintainfreshness of food and enhance its shelf life, reduce packaging cost of food products, eliminate material wastage, and facilitate customization of packages further boost the global thermoform packaging market growth.Thermoforming technology has developed to allow customized packaging solutions that attracts consumers and increases the chances of purchase at the point-of-sale. New packaging products can be prototyped within a short period of time. In addition, high demand for lightweight packaging products significantly fuelsthe growth of the global thermoform packaging market. Several manufacturers have started using lightweight packaging products to address cost-related concerns across the value chain. Moreover, manufacturers are inclined toward biodegradable, bio-derived, and recyclable polymers as alternatives to traditional petroleum-based polymers. Therefore, rise inconcerns regardingdisposal of plastic packaging products and stringent government regulations regarding plastic packaging products are expected to restrainthe global market growth. Though polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is recyclable, the use of strong adhesives stickers on the surface of PET packs renders it non-recyclable. The cost of recycling thermoform packaging is further added by the use of multiple resins while producing plastics. However, advancements in the thermoforming technology and innovations in the designs of packaging solutions are anticipated tooffer lucrative opportunities for the growth of the global thermoform packaging market. 

The global thermoform packaging market is segmented on the basis of material, type, heat seal coating, end-user industry, and region. Based on material, the market is divided into plastics, aluminum, and paper & paperboard. The plastics segment is sub-segmented into polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), and others. Based on type, it is classified into clamshell packaging, blister packaging, skin packaging, and others. Based on heat seal coating, it is segmented into water-based, solvent-based, and hot melt-based heat seal coatings. According to end-user industry, the market is segregated into food & beverage, electronics, personal care & cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and others. Region wise, the market is analyzedacross North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period.

The global thermoform packaging market is fragmented in nature with players such as Anchor Packaging Inc., Amcor Ltd., Display Pack Inc., D&W Fine Pack LLC, Placon Corporation, Reynolds Group Holdings Ltd., Sinclair & Rush Inc., Sonoco Products Company, Tamarack Products Ltd., and WestRock Company. These companies have expanded their production capabilities by acquiring other thermoform businesses and also developing new and improved thermoform packaging products through active R&D.
