With plastics becoming one of the biggest challenges in the world right now, brands prolifically using such materials will need to act quickly to find reliable alternatives. Technological innovations are being made to reduce the price of compostable foodservice packaging, and FMI's study assesses that the global efforts to become a more sustainable society will be instrumental in creating new growth opportunities for the market vendors.

Trays Continue to Gain Preference Over Other Packaging Format

According to the study, the composite foodservice packaging market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of approximately 5% through 2029. One of the key growth drivers is a notable spike in the number of quick service restaurants (QSRs), especially in developing countries, which align with todays' convenience and on-the-go culture. In addition, surging adoption of foodservice disposables, in the view of an increase in the demand for pre-packed food, has been preparing the grounds for compostable foodservice packaging penetration.

The study finds that compostable trays continue to account for relatively large share of manufacturers' bottom lines, while more focus has been placed on increasing the production of compostable cups, as the category is witnessing rising demand from a multitude of end-use sectors. As the search for sustainable solutions scales up, companies operating in packaging industry are starting to launch a number of products made entirely from plant-based materials including mushroom roots, bagasse, seaweed, and starch derived from maize.

What Makes Paper & Paperboard as Most Preferred Material Type for Producing Compostable Foodservice Packaging?

The paper & paperboard material type is expected to offer a profitable incremental opportunity of US$ 4.9 billion over the forecasted period. The rising number of key industry players switching to paper & paperboard for producing disposable foodservice packaging products can be the reason behind the growing demand for the same.
