Vacuum Skin Packaging Market Trends




  • An increase in meat production is driving the market growth




The market CAGR for vacuum skin packaging is driven by the rising demand for meat. Skin packaging is used in packaging food items such as meat, seafood and poultry while keeping their flavor intact and increasing their shelf life. Skin packaging provides several benefits, such as better meat tenderness due to the improved liquid retention of skin packaging. It also bonds with different film layers and has better shelf appeal. China is the largest producer of certain meat items like poultry, bovine, and ovine. Major production of such meat items is used for domestic purposes. The rapid increase in China's population has increased the demand and consumption of meat items. As per the Food and Agriculture Organization report, in 2020, China's poultry meat production increased by 5.3%, bovine meat by 1%, and ovine meat by 1% compared to 2019. Thus, increasing meat production and consumption drives the vacuum skin packaging market revenue.


Additionally, packaging plays a major role in order to attract customers, as it should not only be attractive but must also ensure product safety, freshness, and hygiene. Vacuum packaging offers a longer shelf life to the products as it removes all the air and oxygen from the packet before it is sealed. Vacuum packaging protects the food items such as meat, fish, beef, and vegetables by reducing the atmospheric oxygen and limiting the development of fungi or aerobic bacteria and also preventing the loss of volatile components of the food.


Vacuum skin packaging is increasingly gaining recognition as a preferred packaging technique because it can accommodate products with sharp edges, various shapes, and high protrusions. Strategies adopted by key players in order to stay competitive include mergers & acquisitions, unique product developments, partnerships, and joint ventures, among others. For instance, in March 2022, Berry Group partnered with Koa to launch Body Cleanser & Body Moisturizer bottles made from 100% recycled plastic. As an industry leader in sustainability, Berry focuses on creating a positive environmental impact via streamlined operations, continuously engaged partners, and optimized products, a vision shared by Koa. Koa chose Berry as their supplier for this project due to the shared vision for sustainability in packaging.


The increasing need for food preservation of different meat and dairy products, including cheese, cold cuts, and other forms of meat, is anticipated to fuel the expansion of the market during the assessment period. Due to the durability offered by vacuum skin packaging, conventional packaging techniques are being replaced across various spheres within the food industry. Moreover, vacuum skin packaging offers an additional protection layer compared to conventional packaging solutions, so its adoption continues to witness consistent growth.
