Flexible Packaging Preferable over Rigid Packaging
Nutraceutical packaging is gaining more traction for maintaining the shelf life of a product. The future of nutraceutical packaging involves antimicrobial food contact material, which controls chemical reactions, harmful bacterial effects, fungi concentration, and unpleasant odor from the stored product. Further, it is observed that flexible packaging constitutes a major value share of nutraceutical packaging, primarily owing to its light weight and superior barrier properties. Flexible nutraceutical packaging provides clear visibility to the product along with ease of handling during transportation.
However, the nutraceutical packaging material and type depends upon product form and quantity. Due to the benefits of flexible nutraceutical packaging, bags and pouches are highly preferred for storing protein powders and other granules. With growing emphasis on extended shelf life, it is highly likely that the vacuum skin packaging (VSP) and modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) formats will gain more prominence in market. A significant incremental opportunity has been projected for VSP & MAP types in the global nutraceutical packaging market.
A Growing Consumer Shift to Preventative Care
The nutraceutical packaging market is dynamic and continuously evolving with growing consumer focus on health and wellbeing. Nutraceutical packaging industries are continuously tracking consumer trends and demands with respect to functional food, dietary supplements, and functional beverages. The consumption of food supplements and additional nutrients is consistently increasing due to critical health issues such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular ailments, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, etc.
Increasing health consciousness and consumer demand for specific natural ingredients in food supplements are driving the growth of the nutraceutical market in the U.S. Consumers have more faith on natural ingredients over medicines. Hence, the manufacturers of nutraceuticals are diversifying their portfolio with the inclusion of herbal and natural contents in the supplements. New opportunities for nutraceutical packaging industries are anticipated with the addition of product portfolio and increasing consumption of nutrients. In the U.S. market, it is observed that the consumption of nutraceuticals is more among elder people in order to handle aging problems. Hence, the future growth of the nutraceutical packaging market is dependent on youth, who prefer nutraceuticals for physical fitness, gym, and sports activities.
