Market Potential and Pitfalls

The global Ambient Food Packaging Systems has witnessed a tectonic surge over the past few years as it offers the products with a longer shelf life compared to the usual packaging method. This helps to store the products at room temperature. Ambient food packaging uses high barrier sheets, which ensures convenience to the consumers, safety of the food products stored inside, and attractive design. These supporting factors have triggered the demand from the Ambient Food Packaging Systems Market among manufacturers worldwide. Manufacturers across the world determine the intrinsic and extrinsic attributes of the food products that affect the safety and quality. These comprise ingredients used, manufacturing process, storage conditions, and packaging type. The major processes involved in ambient food packaging are pasteurization and sterilization.

The rising competition for chill cabinet space has led to an increased demand for food packaging. The use of sustainable packaging products is considered a trend in the Ambient Food Packaging Systems Market, which augments the demand for sustainable packaging materials globally. Ambient food packaging materials are expected to be sustainable and environment-friendly. Vendors are highly investing in R&D to develop food packaging materials which can be recycled, can retain moisture, and are resistant to heat. The Western Reserve University Lab has developed an innovative technology, AeroClay, which can turn clay and other items into versatile materials which is eco-friendly, sturdy, and resistant to temperature.

On the contrary, ambient food packaging requires a high level of processing, which adds to the overall cost of the packaging product. This is anticipated to restrict the market growth in the foreseeable future.

Industry Updates

On February 2019, KM Packaging launched two KPeel Ambtort lidding films, which are capable of meeting the complex requirements of the pet food market. The films have been specifically designed to withstand extreme temperatures of up to 123 degrees Celsius, generally used to retort sterilization. This further helps to extend the shelf life of the ambient food products.
