Active Packaging through Edible Coating

The edible coating on food products is a new technology for the application of active ingredients on food products especially meat, poultry, and seafood. The major advantages of edible coatings are recyclability, edibility, good visual appeal, and strong barrier properties. It is highly used for packing frozen and chilled food products and witnessing major demand from North America and Europe. The growth of frozen food and chilled food is limited in APAC, MEA, and Africa, hence the adoption of edible coating is limited in these regions. Furthermore, these coating are sourced from natural resources and recyclable in nature. Thus, edible film and coating technologies have been gaining traction in extending the shelf life of foods by delaying the moisture loss, dropping lipid oxidation and staining. These factors are expected to drive the growth of active and intelligent packaging market.

Use of Natural Anti-Microbial Agents

The growth of natural anti-microbial is expected to grow during the forecast period. The time and complexity associated with regulatory approval of natural anti-microbial agents such as essential oils, chitosan, nisin, and lysozyme, is low in comparison with synthetic agents. This is likely to increase the demand for natural anti-microbial agents in the active packaging market. The list of natural substances used in anti-microbial function is growing and vary based on the product to be packaged. Further, the need to produce green products and consumer preference for “green labelled” products is driving the need for natural anti-microbial agents, thus benefitting the global active and intelligent packaging market.

Growth in Intelligent Packaging Market along the Supply Chain

The industrial usage of intelligent packaging solutions such as the RFID, barcodes, and others are gaining popularity as they can effectively streamline the supply chain process. The major driving factors are the supply chain visibility and also the product quality information received by the brands. The intelligent packaging solutions are used for tracking and tracing the final product in supply chain and also for raw material procurement process. Further, RFID is one of the popular track and trace technologies and been widely used in the logistic sector. Furthermore, the growth of intelligent packaging market by volume is driven by barcodes, across the retail and industrial sector.
